Warner Bros released a new featurette for Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows, which takes a short look back at the history of the classic vampire films that have been made over the years, some behind-the-scenes footage including our first look at a bit part featuring past Dracula, Christopher Lee, sharing the screen with Johnny Depp.
Check out the featurette after the break:
In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America. But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family.
Two decades pass and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet-or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy…until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive.
Two centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. The dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better…
Dark Shadows is scheduled to be released on May 11, 2012 in both conventional and IMAX theaters.
