Soft drink companies are always trying to replicate the taste of their unhealthy tooth destroying drinks into a diet version. When first tasting the low sugar full flavour option in an attempt to avoid the onset of diabetes, you’re amazed at how similar it tastes. The more you swill, the more immune your taste buds become to the fake sugars and the gimmick is lost.
Tim Burton was once that filmmaker who offered something different in the junk pit of mainstream Hollywood with films including ‘Batman’, ‘Beetlejuice’ and ‘Edward Scissorhands’. After years of showing off the same gothic twisted trees in every film, the shine of this quirky filmmaker has worn off and the corpse of Burton’s career lands with a thud in ‘Dark Shadows’.
The trailer for Tim Burton’s next film/last chance debuted via The Ellen Show and it looks like Burton has jammed supernatural and romantic comedy themes into a shotgun and blasted it onto film.

In our books, Tim Burton is running out of chances. His unique visual style is becoming stale and he is far from the” visionary director” label he gets tagged with.
‘Alice in Wonderland’ was a dud despite making tons of money at the box office. We’re giving Burton the benefit of the doubt with his next film ‘Dark Shadows’. The film is based off the 1960s-70s cult TV series, and centers on vampire Barnabas Collins’ (Johnny Depp) attempt to reintegrate with his descendants after having been buried for 200 years.
New images from the film have appeared online via Collider and Luces Camara y Blog featuring Depp and Jackie Earle Haley who plays the caretaker Willie Loomis.
There is still no trailer for the film yet but considering we’re almost two months away from the film’s release, one should drop soon, especially since more images are being released everyday.

The next Tim Burton and Johnny Depp team up is set for released in May called ‘Dark Shadows’. We’re getting sick of the Depp/Burton films especially after the dire ‘Alice in Wonderland’.
