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: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is a stupid concept (from screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith, based on his own novel), from the director of at least one kind of stupid film (Wanted’s Timur Bekmambetov)  and yet, this trailer looks a lot more fun than it has any right to be. What’s going on?

The film stars Benjamin Walker stars as Honest Abe and will be released (in 3D) on June 22, 2012.
