New Dark Shadows
footage in Chinese TV spot makes us wonder, if they’re will be Big Macs, fries and Chicken McNuggets at the red carpet premiere?
Joking aside, a brand new sixty-second spot is being broadcast in China and everyone knows China is McDonald’s third-biggest market, so it’s easy to understand how some folks might see it that way.
However, Dark Shadows debuts in theaters May 11th, 2012 and Johnny Depp
plays the vampire Barnabas Collins in this remake of the 1960s soap opera. This video also shows him meeting with a group of hippies, moments before they meet their demise.
Those who are not afraid of spoilers can watch the spot below the film’s 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.
