9 Character Banners for Tim Burton’s DARK SHADOWS Starring Johnny Depp

     March 28, 2012


Warner Bros. has released nine character banners for Tim Burton‘s comedy Dark Shadows.  These banners are much better than the character posters, which made the entire cast look like albinos for some reason.

Hit the jump to check out the banners.  The film stars Johnny Depp, Eva Green, Michelle Pfeiffer, Chloe Moretz, Jackie Earle Haley, Gulliver McGrath, Helena Bonham Carter, Bella Heathcote, Ray Shirley, and Jonny Lee Miller.  Dark Shadows opens May 11th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Dark Shadows:

In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America. But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet–or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy…until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive. Two centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. The dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better, each harboring their own dark secrets. Matriarch Elizabeth Collins Stoddard (Michelle Pfeiffer) has called upon live-in psychiatrist, Dr. Julia Hoffman (Helena Bonham Carter), to help with her family troubles. Also residing in the manor is Elizabeth’s ne’er-do-well brother, Roger Collins, (Jonny Lee Miller); her rebellious teenage daughter Carolyn Stoddard (Chloe Moretz); and Roger’s precocious 10-year-old son, David Collins (Gulliver McGrath). The mystery extends beyond the family, to caretaker Willie Loomis, played by Jackie Earle Haley, and David’s new nanny, Victoria Winters, played by Bella Heathcote.

    Eva Green, you are a goddess.

      Uhhh….Eva Green’s proportions have been Photoshopped so much that she barely looks like a human. It’s quite comical looking.

        who cares? just enjoy the photo

        Ugh…have you seen The Dreamers?

    So Bella Heathcote essentially has a dual role of Victoria Winters and Barnabas’ love. Interesting.

    Are Victoria Winters and Josette DuPries related? Any die-hard Dark Shadows fan out there, help me out cause I’m curious if they’re related?

    i have to say, the slanting posters looks much nicer than a “straight” poster. i was wondering these past few years why all of the posters from summer blockbuster films are in a slanting position. now i know why. great job whoever invented it(Potter used it alot! and so is in TDK with Heath)

    Did anyone else look at Eva Green and just think: tits!

    The “slanted” posters are that way because the diagonal direction inside the traditional vertical rectangular format of movie posters creates a sense of motion, or action. These posters evoke static motion, or none, so that you focus on the characters themselves.
