Johnny Depp and Eva Green Get Close in New Image for Dark Shadows

We’ve already had a sneak peak of Johnny Depp in this summer’s Tim Burton film Dark Shadows. But this is the first close-up look of former Bond girl Eva Green as Angelique Bouchard – the heartbroken witch who curses Barnabas by turning him into a vampire.

So what do you think of Green with platinum blonde hair? If the below image is anything to go by, she certainly looks to be holding her own against Depp.

Dark Shadows Official Synopsis

In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America. But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet-or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy…until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive. Two centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. The dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better.

Dark Shadows stars Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Eva Green, Chloë Grace Moretz, Jonny Lee Miller, Helena Bonham Carter, Jackie Earle Haley, Bella Heathcote, Gulliver McGrath and Christopher Lee. The movie is slated for release 11th May 2012.
