It’s no secret that Tim Burton no longer directs a film without casting his wife,
Johnny Depp Helena Bonham Carter. There are a few other things that you can almost always count on from Tim, all of which appear in the new trailer for ‘Dark Shadows.’
– Recycled dark set pieces from ‘Edward Scissorhands,’ ‘Beetlejuice,’ ‘Batman,’ ‘Sleepy Hollow,’ ‘Sweeney Todd…’
– An awful, dry joke with a reaction shot of Johnny raising an eyebrow. (What a card!)
– 70’s funk and rock. Ok, admittedly this is not a consistent element of Burton’s films but warrants mention in this case because, seriously Barry fucking White?! At this point Depp should just be mugging directly to the camera with a line like “If they think Nixon is bad, wait’ll they get a loada me.”
Oh look, Eva Green is in this movie and has fantastic breasts, so at least there’s that.
