Cape Town - The first trailer for Tim Burton's Dark Shadows has been released, featuring Johnny Depp as vampire Barnabas Collins, along with a star-studded cast.

The movie is based on the cult TV series of the same name, which ran on TV in US in the 1960s and 70s.

Dark Shadows marks Depp and Burton's eighth film together.

The light-hearted horror tells of Barnabas Collins (played by Depp) who arrives in the US as a young boy from Liverpool, England, with his parents.

He grows up to become the affluent master of Collinwood Manor in the town of Collinsport, Maine, and breaks the heart of a witch Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green) who transforms Barnabas into a vampire and buries him alive.


Centuries later he is inadvertently released from his tomb and returns to Collinwood Manor to find that it is now occupied by the dysfunctional remnants of his family in 1972.

As he attempts to restore the Collins name to its former glory, he is haunted by Angelique.

Dark Shadows also stars Michelle Pfeiffer, Johnny Lee Miller, Chloë Grace Moretz, Jackie Earle Haley and Tim Burton's partner Helena Bonham Carter.

Warner Bros will release Dark Shadows in South Africa on May 11.
