Whilst I remain a fan of earlier Tim Burton and Johnny Depp collaborations (the appeal of Edward Scissorhandsis yet to wane), the pair’s more recent, rather lacklustre efforts have left me increasingly tired of the over-stylised, self-consciously quirky manner.
The pair’s latest effort, Dark Shadows, sees Burton retread familiar territory, but the trailer, whilst not exactly inciting much excitement, does at least compel me to perhaps seek out the film once released.
The main source of interest stems from the casting of the always mesmerising Eva Green. I look forward to seeing her take on a more comedic role than her previous efforts. Whether Dark Shadows will cure my Burton-fatigue remains to be answered, but this first trailer fills me with some small degree of optimism.
