Dark Shadows

  1. Theaters Saw Worst Summer Sales Since 1993 Despite Billion Dollar Blockbusters Like TDKR & Avengers

    And That's Terrible

    Just yesterday we told you Joss Whedon's The Avengers pushed past the $1.5 billion dollar mark for global ticket sales. Today, we've found out Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises has officially become the 11th film to cross the billion dollar mark. Theater owners must be very happy, right? Wrong. Apparently 2012 has had the worst summer for ticket sales since 1993.

    With summer interns making their way back to the hallowed halls of education and Jill and I starting to realize just how close New York Comic Con is, we felt it was a good time to take a look back at the good, the bad, and the... wait, that came out this summer? Eugh. I'd repressed it from my memory.

    Peanut Butter and Chocolate

    After working on Dark Shadows together, Tim Burton and Seth Grahame-Smith will reunite for the former's return to the ooky-spooky land of stop-motion animation. It's yet another project the new dynamic duo will be working on in addition to a possible Beetlejuice sequel. We like this friendship! It's not just peanut butter and chocolate -- it's peanut butter, chocolate, and cinnamon.

    Things We Saw Today

    So...this happened. On the left is the current DC Comics logo. On the right is what Bleeding Cool is reporting as their newly designed logo for both DC Comics and DC Entertainment. BC points out that when the old logo was revealed in 2005 it was universally panned but well-liked now. And guess what? Everyone already hates it. We can't imagine why... Hit the jump for all the other stuff we saw today!

  7. Awesome Casting News: Alice Cooper Joining Dark Shadows, Playing Himself

    This Makes Sense

    In one of the most shockingly appropriate casting announcements ever, Alice Cooper, shock rocker extraordinaire, will be joining Tim Burton's film adaptation of campy horror TV series Dark Shadows. If you're wondering which member of the Collins clan he'll be playing, your speculation can end here. Cooper will be playing himself, in "full spandex regalia."

  9. Here Is a Spooktastic Glimpse at Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows

    this exists

    Entertainment Weekly has the first official look at Tim Burton's film adaptation of Dark Shadows, and it's probably fair to say we're a little bit less worried about Johnny Depp's appearance now. A little bit. You might recall the earlier set pictures we posted in which Depp's Barnabas Collins looks, well, like exactly how Tim Burton would interpret Barnabas Collins if he were a gothic, deranged mime-clown. Or Michael Jackson. (Wow, imagine if Tim Burton did a Michael Jackson biopic? Michael Jackson would probably have dug that sooooo much. Anyway ... ) But here, the look is considerably more toned down, and according to EW, he is supposed to be taking on more of the "aged little boy look" of the original Barnabas, Jonathan Frid. You'll also see Michelle Pfeiffer as Elizabeth Stoddard Collins, Helena Bonham Carter as Dr. Julia Hoffman, and Chloë Moretz as Carolyn Stoddard. EW has a comprehensive rundown of all the characters. Click through to get a bigger look at the pic. (via Topless Robot)

  10. There Is Not a Surprise Michael Jackson Biopic Coming Out — This Is Just Johnny Depp in Dark Shadows

    i'll just leave this here

    Johnny Depp is currently playing the part of Barnabas Collins in Tim Burton's film adaptation of Dark Shadows. Here is what he looks like. Yeah ... if you're also thinking "kinda ridiculous," it's okay. Especially if you're thinking, "Hey -- I had no idea that Barnabas Collins was a demented mime-type." Well, it's a Tim Burton movie, folks. This is what happens when that happens. One more pic after the jump.

  11. The Beetlejuice Reboot You Didn’t Know You Wanted Will Be Made

    Thank You?

    After making buddy-friends with Tim Burton on the set of Dark Shadows (by writing the screenplay), Seth Grahame-Smith and his producing partner David Katzenberg have signed a deal with Warner Brothers, for which they will be writing two new scripts. And one of those scripts, we hear, has a very good chance of being a reboot/sequel to Beetlejuice. Guys, if you wanted to resurrect Beetlejuice, you just have to say: "Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice." But then, you'll have to marry him, so we understand why you'd go through the trouble of making a deal with WB.

  12. Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows Gets a Release Date

    and let it be known

    The much-anticipated film adaptation of the campy 1960s horror series Dark Shadows is set to be released just about a year from now. May 11, 2012, to be precise. This is the latest Tim Burton-Johnny Depp collaboration which is why we consider it "much-anticipated," but also because of this cast: Helena Bonham Carter (natch), Chloe Moretz, Eva Green, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Jackie Earle Haley. It's also been years since this project was first announced, so it's good to finally know that we're going to get to see this soon. (/film)

  13. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Author Scripting Tim Burton Film Dark Shadows

    Seth Grahame-Smith, author of both Pride and Prejudice and Zombie and the more recent but equally ridiculous Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, is about to get one more reason to be beloved by the eccentric geek community: He has been chosen to write the script for the next big Tim Burton-Johnny Depp collaboration, Dark Shadows. The film is to be based off the gothic soap opera series of the same name that ran on ABC in the last 60s and early 70s. Perhaps as cool as the fact that such an out-there writer earned this opportunity is the way in which he earned it.
