Trailer: ‘Dark Shadows’ (what sorcery is this?)

The original “Dark Shadows” was a campy, black and white supernatural soap opera remade years later as an over-serious drama. Tim Burton’s gothic-theatrical take seems intent on celebrating the absurd while playing the obvious ridiculousness straight-laced. It worked for Alice in Wonderland, so here’s hoping.
