Dark Shadows Falters In The Shadow Of The Avengers – Biff Bam Pop’s Box Office Wrap-Up Report, Weekend Of May 11th 2012
You can’t stop The Avengers, that’s for sure. The film is breaking records all over the place, including this past weekend, which saw it become the first movie in history to gross over $100 million in it’s second weekend.

After hitting the movies with the Queen last night to catch Tim Burton and Johnny Depp’s Dark Shadows, I walked away thinking that someone in the Warner Brothers marketing department needs a series wrist slap. When the film fails at the box office this summer, I guarantee it will be in large part because of the absolutely absurd marketing campaign that pushed the film as some sort of fish out of water comedy rather than the genuinely gothic film the creators puts together.
