I'll definitely be skipping this one.  Edward Scissorhands was enough Johnny Depp playing a pasty British guy in a Tim Burton movie for me.  To me, it's just the same schtick with different costumes.  I don't understand the enduring popularity of this stuff.

On the bright side, I see Amazon's got Night of Dark Shadows available for download, so I'll have to check that out one of these days.

Only $120,000,000 more to go. The estimate budget for the film was $150,000,000, excluding what it has earned in Europe so far, it took in about $30,000,000 its opening weekend in the U.S.

How in the world did they spend $150 million on that movie? It doesn't show up on the screen.

I'm pretty much in agreement with Fausto on the movie, although I liked it less.

How did they manage to spend $150,000,000? I have no idea. That is just the estimated figure I've seen. Though, I do expect part of the money went into salaries for both Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. Both of whom I expect got multi-million $ paydays, even before the film opened.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
