Featurettes: Dark Shadows & Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
The new Dark Shadows featurette takes the time to introduce us to the weird of assortment of personalities in the Collins household – including a hapless matriarch (Michelle Pfeiffer), an off-kilter psychiatrist (Helena Bonham Carter), the shrink’s rebellious daughter (Chloe Moretz) and a soft-minded groundskeeper (Jackie Earle Haley). This cast of misfits gets even more twisted when their vampiric ancestor Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp) comes home after a 200-year imprisonment, dragging his twisted witch tormentor (Eva Green) along with him.
Check out the family album in this Dark Shadows featurette:
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter doesn’t want you to write it off just because of its silly name. To that end, the filmmakers – Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov, producer Tim Burton and writer Seth Grahame-Smith – are trying to convince viewers that their movie is less of a hokey-sounding genre mashup, and more of a “classic superhero origin story” that they are not afraid to compare with Batman.
Have a look at the latest Vampire Hunter featurette and tell us if “Batman” is what you get from it:
Dark Shadows will be in theaters on May 11, 2012.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter will be in 3D theaters on June 22, 2012.
