Has anyone seen the trailer for Dark Shadows with Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins?

Oh, I didn't forget the parallel universe & time travel stuff.... I mentioned it above... lol.

That is a cool place, Sandy... I did not realize some of Dark Shadows was filmed there... looks way better in color, I'm sure!

It's a beautiful little town located on the Connecticut river and close to the shore.

Well, Susan... I guess people who like Johnny Depp will probably go see it... It doesn't look like too much is going to be like the original.

The premise of the ORIGINAL story started off being a young, innocent, orphaned girl going to Maine to try to find out about her past.

Never heard of the original and I saw the preview last night for the first time. By the preview, I can't even tell you what the movie is about. I think a lot of previews are like that now. Doesn't make me want to see the movie if I don't know what its about.

I've never seen Dark Shadows, so I have no comparison, but Johnny doesn't look at all like the original!!!!!!!!!

I've heard of it but I never watched it. Sorry Daisy. They did make Johnny Depp look pasty white....looks nothing like the older version.
