Tim Burton And Helena Bonham Carter Look To Overtake Avengers

Can the Lone Ranger Johnny Depp take down Iron Man and Co.?

The race to the bank this weekend between The Avengers and Dark Shadows might be neck-and-neck — and for vampires that usually bodes well.

Avengers could break the unbelievable $1 billion dollar mark as soon as Sunday but Dark Shadows is expected to do very well and, in some cases, is already outearning Joss Whedon’s solid-gold superhero pic.

Finally some competition!!

Shadows execs know Tim Burton flicks typically track well with women — and we get it, they always look FABULOUS!

They’re also optimistic that males may split their attention this weekend between seeing Avengers again and rolling the dice on Battleship.

We’re just SUPER stoked there are so many great movies to see!!

Do U think Rihanna and Liam Neeson’s 'Ship will finally sink The Avengers?

    Highly unlikely. I've seen the collaboration of Depp and Burton in the past. Not looking for good things. Plus Avengers is just THAT good. You just can't go wrong with it. Need inspiration to see the Avengers? Here's the 3D trailer:

    Just got back from watching "Dark Shadows". What a hoot!! It's a classic. The movie has so much humor, some scary bloody, creepy stuff, wonderful sets and of course Depp was perfect, as was the entire cast. Phifer was amazing and Helena was so funny. I loved the 1972 flashback since that is the year I graduated. The music was great. What was surprising at the noon showing, was the theater was filled with seniors older than me! They would have been in their prime in the 70's and probably rocked out to the same music. I've always said Depp appeals to all ages, men and women. The critics are oblivious, as usual. This movie was really good and Depp was amazing. I'd give it a 8 out of 10.

    Dark Shadows has absolutely no chance of unseating The Avengers this weekend, at least domestically. It's projected to do somewhere between $30-40 Million, whilst Avengers is projected at more than double that, $80 Million plus. Saying it might be "neck-and-neck" really just makes it seem like the article hasn't been researched very well.

    I really dislike this time of year, spring and summer seems to bring out all the sequels and remakes, etc. Used to go to the movies at least once a week, have not been since last year.
