Newsroom Obsessions: 'Dark Shadows'


We don't really get into movie talk too much here on the MTV Newsroom Blog because, you know, there's an entire MTV Movies Blog for that and it's pretty awesome.

But a certain movie has cast a devious spell on me and I just have to tell you about it. The movie is "Dark Shadows" and I will be writing about it every Friday for MTV News. If you're interested, pop culture-obsessed MTV Newsers will actually be keeping weekly tabs on a variety of major upcoming film releases – "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn," "The Avengers," "The Hunger Games" and "The Dark Knight Rises."

You should give them all a read. We live for this stuff, so you can expect the appropriate amount of fanboy/girl excitement and insider buzz.

Now, back to "Dark Shadows." I just can't wait for it. Though I am only 28 years old, I am a fan of the original soap, which ran from 1966-71 (but was re-aired during my childhood on the SyFy Channel) and think the cast, from Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer (iconic!) to Chloe Moretz and Helena Bonham Carter, that director Tim Burton has assembled is pretty perfect.


So check out my first column on "Dark Shadows" and visit MTV Movies daily for the latest Hollywood happenings.
