Facebook Contest and Dark Shadows

Just to clear up any confusion about the Facebook contest to be the first to see the Alice trailer, you must choose an "army" (either the Mad Hatter, the Red or the White Queen) by joining one of the following Facebook groups before 7pm EST on July 23rd.
The Loyal Subjects of the Red Queen: www.facebook.com/RedQueenSubjects
The Loyal Subjects of the White Queen: www.facebook.com/WhiteQueenSubjects
The Disloyal Subjects of the Mad Hatter: www.facebook.com/MadHatterSubjects
(I personally went with the Hatter, who has almost 14,ooo followers while the Queens have less than 3,000.) The lucky winners will see the trailer before it's debut at comic-con. It will be on the site as soon as it hits the interwebz :)

Tim Burton says Dark Shadows filming will begin next year, as he told MTV Movie Blog:

“That’s something that [Depp and I] both love and are excited about,” the director told MTV News. “When I’m done with this I’ll definitely focus on that.”

Burton's comments jibe with what Depp said during the “Public Enemies” junket a few weeks ago. He told MTV's Josh Horowitz that he’ll be shooting “Shadows” and a fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean" film next year. There's also the fact that in March, an executive in Depp's production told us that the film "is very active" and "the studio will be making some announcements regarding it pretty soon. Very soon, probably.”

“It’s another challenge because it was such a weird soap opera,” Burton explained. “Part of the energy of it was the tone and weirdness of it. That’s our challenge, to try to capture that vibe.”

Which direction does Burton plan on going?

“It’s always a fine line,” he said. “That remains to be seen. That’s a question and a challenge we talk about a lot. I haven’t arrived at the answer. That’s definitely a main issue, the tone and the vibe of it because as we all know melodrama can cross over. It’s one of the more interesting things about it.”
