Trailer Watch: Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows whaaaaat

I have to admit, I had the cheesiest grin on my face for most of this trailer. This is bat-shit crazy. Between this and the Frankenweenie trailer, maybe Tim Burton has turned his career around (creatively speaking — his awful Alice in Wonderland managed to make a billion dollars worldwide, so it’s hard to say he’s been struggling commercially).

Johnny Depp stars as Barnabas Collins in Tim Burton’s… adaptation(?) of the Dark Shadows soap opera. Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Jackie Earle Haley, Jonny Lee Miller, Bella Heathcote, Gulliver McGrath, and Chloe Moretz round out the cast of the film, which hits theaters on May 11 (or, you know, wait for it to hit cable, Direct tv, or DVD like half the world).

Trailer Watch: Johnny Depp and Hunter S. Thompson are together again in The Rum Diary

On October 28, 2011, Johnny Depp and Hunter S. Thompson are back together in Withnail & I director Bruce Robinson’s adaptation of The Rum Diary. Fantastic choice of director (particularly if Terry Gilliam weren’t an option), and this trailer looks like a lot of fun.

Amber Heard, Aaron Eckhart, Giovani Ribisi and Richard Jenkins round out the cast.

Watch the trailer below (courtesy the film’s YouTube channel) or read the synopsis after the cut:
