Yesterday we saw a quick sneak peek at new footage from Tim Burton’s big screen adaptation of Dark Shadows and right now we get our first look at the film’s first trailer. As you may know, Dark Shadows was once a semi-cheesy daytime soap opera back in the 60s/70s … and it would appear that Burton used the campy cheesiness of the original TV series as inspiration for this new film. I don’t think the trailer below is going to be at all what you might’ve been expecting. Click below for your first look at Dark Shadows.
Um … wow, this is some trailer. I don’t think I at all expected Dark Shadows to be turned into a comedy but … well, there you have it. I have to admit, I laughed out loud a few times while watching this trailer. I’m certain many people will hate this film, to be honest … mainly because vampire humor rarely does well with audiences. What do y’all think? Is this the Dark Shadows film you were hoping to see? Does it look like a film that you might want to check out in theaters?
