Dark Shadows Movie Cast Photo: Compare The Old With The New

Entertainment Weekly has revealed the first cast photo from the new Tim Burton movie, Dark Shadows.

“I remember seeing a group photograph of the cast of the original series,” Burton told EW. “For me it captured the weird DARK SHADOWS vibe in a single image. I had a brief window of opportunity to have our cast present at the same time, the day before principle photography began. We decided to stage a similar picture instead of rehearsing, to see if we captured the DARK SHADOWS feeling.”

The movie is scheduled for theatrical release May 11, 2012.

What do you think? The new cast photo seems more true to the original series to us than the Johnny Depp photo circulating recently from the set.

  1. This is going to excellent, I can't wait for the movie. I loved the reboot version on NBC and read it was doing well in ratings but new people at NBC decided to move the time slot and was ready for 2nd season and higher ups cancelled the show. Ben Cross was an excellent BC and so was BS.

    And if you like Barnabas Collins, here's a song about him:

  3. This photo is looking really original and best than the old one.
