Already revealed last summer as filming was underway, it's not much of a surprise that mild shock rocker Alice Cooper would be popping up in the '70s set "Dark Shadows." But in case you forgot or needed proof, a new trailer has landed.

Granted, it's everything we saw in the spot that dropped last week, and really it's just another chance for you to assess the last collaboration between Johnny Depp and Tim Burton. This writer thinks it's by far the most interesting thing the director has done in years, even if it falls squarely into his very familiar wheelhouse. But when Burton is firing on all the cylinders within that framework, his films are some of the most enjoyable and uniquely inventive around. And same goes for Depp, who is doing the quirky thing again with lots of makeup, but still, when he's got strong material, no one does it better.

Eva Green, Bella Heathcote, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Chloe Moretz, Jonny Lee Miller and Jackie Earle Haley co-star in the film that opens on May 11th. Watch below -- Alice Cooper pops up at the end. [via ComingSoon]
