“Movies are like an expensive form of therapy for me.” Tim Burton
Looks like this summer will indeed be very therapeutic for Tim Burton. Friday, May 11th, the feature film adaptation of TV soap opera Dark Shadows (1966-1971) debuts. The film marks the eighth onscreen collaboration between Burton and Johnny Depp. If you venture out to see Dark Shadows, you may also see a preview for Burton’s upcoming animated venture Frankenweenie, and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which he produced.
In addition to a busy film release schedule, Tim Burton: The Exhibition, is currently showing at Cinematheque Francaise in Paris, France. It is a retrospective containing over 700 drawings, paintings, and other media from Burton’s life. Traveling through different museums since 2009, I attended the exhibit last year, when it came to LACMA.
