Remakes & Reboots: Upcoming Movies You've Seen Before

 Release Date: May 11, 2012

Director: Tim BurtonCast: Johnny Depp, Eva Green, Michelle Pfeiffer, Chloe Moretz, Helena Bonham Carter, Jackie Earle Haley and Christopher Lee

Category: Movie reboot of the Dark Shadows TV show.

Our take: Tim Burton is taking a cult-favorite Gothic TV show about supernatural monsters, and re-fashioning it as a weird blockbuster movie about supernatural monsters - and he's bringing along some of his favorite collaborators (Depp, Carter) a few pretty additional faces (Green, Pfeiffer) and a screen icon (Lee).

As far as it being a reboot: considering that most of the target audience for this movie didn't watch the original TV show back in the late '60s and early '70s, Burton's movie will hopefully feel like a welcome introduction to the Dark Shadows mythos.
