Dark Shadows 2012

I've been waiting impatiently for this trailer to be released, and let me say, it took them long enough. The movie Dark Shadows is scheduled to be released in early May, yet for some reason they decided to wait until March to release the trailer. But it's here now, and members of the Cult of Dark Shadows can start talking.

I'm not ready to dismiss the movie, but I'm not too happy about the direction Tim Burton seems to have gone in for this interpretation. If this trailer is any indication, the movie is a comedy. Now, the original Dark Shadows may have been funny, but they didn't mean it to be. The show took itself seriously, or at least it pretended to. Sometimes, it was even scary. Burton and Depp are playing a dangerous game here. If the fanbase doesn't go for it, the franchise ends before it's begun.
