Late Night Trailers: Dark Shadows

Nobody told me there would be disco in the vampire soap opera! Now that I know, I'm afraid you can color me super enthusiastic about this particular brand of absurdity.  It's been a few years since Tim Burton attempted gothic comedy, and I've always liked him best when the sincerity is exchanged for a bit of camp (remember Mars Attacks! guys?).  Seriously, how fun does this look?  So fun.  Dark Shadows is, of course, based on the famed supernatural soap opera of yore, in which a modern day family has run-ins with ghosts and eventually takes in an ancestral vampire named Barnabas Collins.  Here, Johnny Depp picks up the role of Barnabas, leading an all-star cast of acting folk I generally quite like through mayhem that looks fantastically silly, like the cure for Twilight's caustic sincerity. Summer is going to be great, obviously...
