During an awkward dinner with the Collins family, vampire Barnabas is advised by young Carolyn Stoddard to throw a party with the eccentric rocker as a guest star.
A brand new clip for Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows" has been uncovered, focusing on a scene where vampire Barnabas Collins shares an awkward dinner with the newly reunited Collins family. Barnabas is seen offering an idea to throw a high-class ball to pompously show just how powerful the Collins family is.
His idea, however, is rejected by Carolyn Stoddard, who insists that people don't throw balls in modern day. She then suggests that the newly awakened vampire holds a gig and invite eccentric rocker Alice Cooper. Though seemingly having no idea what the young girl is saying, Barnabas takes the offer and goes, "Well, she [Alice] should be our guest nonetheless."
An adaptation of 1960s' Gothic soap opera of the same name, "Dark Shadows" centers on Barnabas, a wealthy playboy who owns the Collinwood Manor. One day, he made a big mistake of breaking the heart of vengeful witch Angelique, who then turned him into a vampire before burying him alive.
Two centuries later, Barnabas is accidentally freed from his tomb. The vampire returns to his mansion only to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. He must now struggle to restore his family's glorious era while having some run-ins with various monsters, witches, werewolves and ghosts.
Johnny Depp tackles the part of Barnabas, while Chloe Moretz plays rebellious Carolyn. Also supporting the much awaited fantasy comedy movie are Eva Green, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Jonny Lee Miller and Jackie Earle Haley.
"Dark Shadows" is scheduled for a May 11 release in theaters across the United States.
