Tim Burton’s ‘Dark Shadows’ – Nine New Awesome Character Posters!

Tim Burton’s ‘Dark Shadows’ – Nine New Awesome Character Posters!

Warner Bros. Pictures has unveiled nine new character posters for Tim Burton’s highly anticipated adaptation of ‘Dark Shadows’. The colorful designs feature Eva Green as Angelique Bouchard, Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins, Helena Bonham Carter as Dr. Julia Hoffman, Gully McGrath as David Collins, Jonny Lee Miller as Roger Collins, Bella Heathcote as Victoria Winters, Jackie Earle Haley as Willie Loomis, Chloe Moretz as Caroline Stoddard and Michelle Pfieffer as Elizabeth Collins Stoddard.

Check out the posters in the gallery below and remember to mark your calendar for May 11th, when the film hits theaters.

 

Official Synopsis: In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America. But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet–or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy…until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive. Two centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. The dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better, each harboring their own dark secrets. Matriarch Elizabeth Collins Stoddard (Michelle Pfeiffer) has called upon live-in psychiatrist, Dr. Julia Hoffman (Helena Bonham Carter), to help with her family troubles. Also residing in the manor is Elizabeth’s ne’er-do-well brother, Roger Collins, (Jonny Lee Miller); her rebellious teenage daughter Carolyn Stoddard (Chloe Moretz); and Roger’s precocious 10-year-old son, David Collins (Gulliver McGrath). The mystery extends beyond the family, to caretaker Willie Loomis, played by Jackie Earle Haley, and David’s new nanny, Victoria Winters, played by Bella Heathcote.

John Lithgow and Freida Pinto Join The Cast of ‘Rise of The Apes’

John Lithgow and Freida Pinto Join The Cast of ‘Rise of The Apes’

John Lithgow and Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) have signed on to join in 20th Century Fox’s Planet of the Apes prequel Rise of the Apes. The pair join leading man James Franco (Spider-Man/Milk). Lithgow will play Franco’s Alzheimer’s-stricken father. Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) is set to play Caroline, the film’s female lead who is “a primatologist.” Director Rupert Wyatt will direct the flick from a screenplay by Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa.

Official plot synopsis: RISE OF THE APES (tentative title) is an origin story in the truest sense of the term. Set in present day San Francisco, the film is a reality-based cautionary tale, a science fiction/science fact blend, where man’s own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.

The Apes will be created using CGI by the wonderful tram at WETA Digital, rather than the costumed actors we’ve seen in past installments of the franchise. The press release says that they will employ “certain of the groundbreaking technologies developed for AVATAR” and “will render, for the first time ever in the film series, photo-realistic apes rather than costumed actors.”

Fox’s Tom Rothman has said that it is “a kind of prequel story before the first story, with a return to the social thematics that mark the first one, but with an entirely contemporary setting – Earth 2009.” The film won’t have talking monkeys and will not end with chimps taking over Earth. Instead the film will be a hard science fiction film about humans that use science to create hyper-intelligent chimpanzees.

Principal photography is set to begin on July 5th 2010 in British Columbia. Rise of the Apes is currently slated for a June 24, 2011 release.
