Tim Burton gets campy in the Dark Shadows trailer

It's the moment Tim Burton fans have been waiting for!  The trailer for his upcoming movie Dark Shadows is now available online and it does not disappoint.  

Johnny Depp stars as 200-year-old vampire Barnabas Collins, who wakes up in 1972 after being cursed and buried alive by a cunning witch (Eva Green).  The movie is based on the gothic soap opera that aired on TV from 1966 to 1971 and has since become a cult classic.  Full of vampires, spirits, witches, and disco music, Dark Shadows looks like it is going to be one fun ride.

The trailer is full of campy and comedic charm blended with Burton’s signature style, featuring an all-star cast including Helena Bonham Carter, Michelle Pfeiffer, Chloe Moretz and Jonny Lee Miller.
