Dark Shadows is Now a Summer Movie

ON

What does the competition look like?

Tim Burton’s adaptation of the long-running television series Dark Shadows is rolling into theaters on May 11, 2012.

That places the gothic horror film smack-dab at the outset of the summer movie season.

It opens one week after Marvel’s The Avengers, a week before Battleship and two weeks before Men in Black III.

Ouch.

With Burton at the helm and Johnny Depp starring, it’s possible the film will hold its own during what is expected to be an incredibly crazy summer movie season.

Eva Green, Jackie Earle Haley, Bella Heathcoate, Thomas McDonnell, Helena Bonham Carter and Chloe Moretz co-star.
