Trailer Watch: Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows whaaaaat

I have to admit, I had the cheesiest grin on my face for most of this trailer. This is bat-shit crazy. Between this and the Frankenweenie trailer, maybe Tim Burton has turned his career around (creatively speaking — his awful Alice in Wonderland managed to make a billion dollars worldwide, so it’s hard to say he’s been struggling commercially).

Johnny Depp stars as Barnabas Collins in Tim Burton’s… adaptation(?) of the Dark Shadows soap opera. Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Jackie Earle Haley, Jonny Lee Miller, Bella Heathcote, Gulliver McGrath, and Chloe Moretz round out the cast of the film, which hits theaters on May 11 (or, you know, wait for it to hit cable, Direct tv, or DVD like half the world).

Trailer Watch: Tim Burton’s feature length Frankenweenie

Yahoo! Movies brings us the first trailer to the first Tim Burton movie I’m actually interested in for the first time in a decade, with this feature length stop motion adaptation of his own short film, Frankenweenie. I guess he’s still not doing anything truly original, but at least if he’s gotta keep rehashing stuff, he’s at least rehashing his own stuff now…? I guess? Still, this looks like fun.

Frankenweenie hits the big screen on October 5, 2012. The voice cast includes Winona Ryder, Martin Short, Catherine O’Hara, and Martin Landau. If you haven’t seen the original, you can check it out (in two parts) over at YouTube.
