Depp, Burton bring 'Dark Shadows' comedy to London
LONDON (AP) -- Johnny Depp's gothic comedy "Dark Shadows" is creeping into London for its European premiere.
The star joins director Tim Burton and co-stars Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green and Chloe Moretz on the red carpet in the British capital on Wednesday night.
"Dark Shadows" is based on the American cult classic TV series. It centers on Barnabas Collins (Depp) -- a wealthy man who is turned into a vampire by a witch (Green) and then buried alive. Some 200 years later he is unearthed by a construction crew and suddenly finds himself back in his insular Maine hometown in 1972.
A confused Barnabas discovers that his descendants have lost the wealth his family once had.
The movie hits U.K. cinemas on May 11.
