The first official image from Tim Burton’s big screen update of Dark Shadows has appeared online. “I remember seeing a gaggle photograph of the forged of the unique series. For me it captured the unusual Dark Shadows vibe in one image,” Burton told Entertainment Weekly. “I had a short lived window of opportunity to have our cast present on the same time, the day before principle photography began. We decided to stage an analogous picture in place of rehearsing, to peer if we captured the Dark Shadows feeling.” The small-screen TV show turned big-budget film sees Johnny Depp play the lead as vampire Barnabas Collins. “I do remember, very vividly, practically sprinting home from school within the afternoon to peer Jonathan Frid play Barnabas Collins. Even then, at that age, I knew – this has got to be weird,” Depp remembers. From left to right they’re: Dr. Julia Hoffman (Helena Bonham Carter); Carolyn Stoddard (Chloë Moretz); Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green); David Collins (Gulliver McGrath); Victoria Winters (Bella Heathcote); Barnabas Collins (Depp); Mrs. Johnson (Ray Shirley); Willie Loomis (Jackie Earle Haley); Roger Collins (Jonny Lee Miller); Elizabeth Collins Stoddard (Michelle Pfeiffer).
