I saw a trailer for this film at the BFI IMAX today and I am tipping it on the basis that it is a Tim Burton film starring Johnny Depp, and it has Edward Scissorhands (one of my favourite films of all time) written all over it!

Cut and pasted from an email from the BFI:

Dark Shadows - The IMAX Experience (12A)
Opens 11 May

In 1752 the Collins family sails from Liverpool to start a new life in America. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas (Johnny Depp) is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy until he breaks the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green), who turns him into a vampire and buries him alive. Two centuries later Barnabas is freed 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. Tim Burton's gothic vampire tale is based on the cult TV series of the same name.

Tickets are on sale now.

Definitely want to see this – although will have to wait until the movie hits the local Showcase cinema circuit. I want to see Johnny Depp as a vampire! And I also think that Jonny Lee Miller will be most amusing in his role of beige-clad playboy Roger. :-))

Having seen the trailer, my advice is to de-prioritise this and get onto Edward Scissorhands!

Sadly the actor who played the original television series Barnabas Collins has just died http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/arts-and-life/entertainment/TV/dark-shadows-vampire-jonathan-frid-dies-at-87-148365265.html

I hope he got to see something of the Tim Burton remake and approved of Johnny's casting.

Johnny Depp was at St Paul's recently doing some filming.

Unfortunately I heard this second hand and didn't get to see him!

Well you can't win them all!

There are some actors who I see all the time, as they are on the same circuit as me, and there are others who are VERY elusive!

Do you know what he was doing the filming for?
