Johnny Depp teams up with director Tim Burton to play British playboy-turned-vampire Barnabas Collins in the gothic comedy Dark Shadows. Based on the supernatural ABC soap opera of the late '60s, the story begins in 1752: Having relocated from Liverpool to Collinsport, Maine, Barnabas grows up to be rich and powerful. But when he breaks the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green), the witch turns him into a vampire and buries him alive. Two centuries later, Barnabas is freed from his tomb, only to find his estate in shambles. Can he survive in the very different world of 1972 with a dysfunctional family harboring their own dark secrets? Michelle Pfeiffer, Chloe Grace Moretz, Jonny Lee Miller, Gulliver McGrath, Bella Heathcote, Helena Bonham Carter and Jackie Earle Haley also star.
