Janet, does King actually use the phrase "a container of coffee" in any of his effusions?  What a hoot if so!  I had forgotten about the coconut custard doughnut.  How exotic for little old Collinsport!

Best, G.

For what it is worth, a lot of people over on the "Monster Kids" classic horror film fans forum are saying the same thing about these photos--that WB should expedite the release of official pub photos to allay the "viral" reaction on the Internet to the notion that Depp's performance and appearance as Barnabas Collins will be "a tribute to Michael Jackson."  (You gotta admit, that would certainly be a unique spin on the character!)

In general however, that group of film buffs isn't optimistic about the whole DS project.  The fact that Burton's films still perform so well at the box office doesn't keep them from regarding him as creatively tapped out and washed up.

Thanks Michael for the fashion notes.  The hat really isn't working for me.  Too 1940s and too much out of sync with the rest of what he's wearing.  I don't know if they're playing on the whole cousin from England bit and giving him a post-Carnaby Street, proto glamrock look, or what.

I would have preferred a darker color on Vicki's jacket and boots with the Ashley dress... but then, I'm no fashionista.

Lovely shots of our family ancestral home.

I played a clip on Youtube.  It looks a lot like the usual CW jazz,mixed in with the current fads around portrayals of werewolves as feral gangsters and vampires as rich, troubled alcoholics... so, I don't know...  I just don't have that much time to watch anything these days.  Nice production values, though.

G.

2871
Another one.  This one has two photos I don't recall seeing elsewhere of Depp going to his mark:

It looks as if CGI might have been involved in how Depp appeared in Willy Wonka.  I have no idea what array of technical gizmos were deployed in Alice.  Haven't seen either film.

He just added a Barnabas panel; he says that his look for Barnabas is now "a hybrid" of Jonathan Frid and the look Depp has in the new photos:

Somebody mentioned Depp wearing a Barnabas ring, but I don't see it here.  The fabric on the coat seems odd to me.  I'm more curious than ever to see an actual publicity photo of Depp as Barnabas Collins.

I wonder what Michael of Brooklyn will think of Vicki's Laura Ashley couture which is an odd choice with the jacket and boots.  But we are supposed to be looking at 1972...

Interesting how little Thomas mentions werewolves since I have heard no reference to them otherwise in this film... presumably he was just thinking about what he has read about the original series (or maybe he also has seen some episodes?).

It has a DS vibe?  Interesting. Maybe I should add the first disc to my Netflix queue and give it a shot...

G.

2875
And if postproduction CGI is going to be involved in Depp's final look, and Burton and the designers are still tinkering with that--that would explain why we have yet to see any pub photos or teasers from this production.

Just a thought.

2876
Hi Nancy, after I got over the shock, I had the same line of thought you did about the outlandish white makeup and lipstick, etc.--that in postproduction there may be CGI done over Depp's face, for this scene or possibly throughout the movie (in which case, postproduction is going to take a REALLY long time).

G.

2877
Fascinating.  My initial impression was "homage to Michael Jackson"?  There's a touch of Scissorhands, too...

I thought Chloe had gone home... I would guess it is Bella... I wouldn't know either actress if I fell over here, of course...

I really like this one:

http://caltsoudas.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d40yua1

He does mention that he's working on a full scale online comic book from the series, but I am afraid if he starts he will be issued with a cease and desist order from a certain busybody in LA.

David in the above drawing looks like a male version of Edie Sedgwick during her "Youthquake" days in '65-'66. 

He blends a variety of styles--a panel that shows what appears to be Maggie Evans in suspended animation covered with cobwebs is very reminiscent of some of Erte's work.

A major boo-boo in terms of the original series is the cat-claw manicure Julia sports in the drawings.  One of Grayson's personal habits was that she always kept her fingernails clipped extremely short.  I don't actually recall ever seeing her in a role where she had on false fingernails, even.  In That Darn Cat you can tell when the cat handler is working with Pussy because there's a close-up and all of a sudden this person has these long, carefully cared-for nails.  Grayson doesn't have those, "not now and not ever" (that's a quote, you know).

The resemblance to Grayson is only a casual one in the Julia drawings.  She looks more like Cruella de Ville.  I appreciate the artist's appreciation for Buzz even if he did a radical re-cast of the character and persona.

OK, I need to stop going on and ON about these!

I have no idea whether this is relevant to this thread, but I thought of how ardently you (MB) keep up with news on this show last Friday when I was at Macy's--their big flagship store in Downtown Crossing, in Boston (which is where I ALWAYS imagine Liz, Carolyn and Vicki going on their shopping trips in 1967)--I was headed for housewares, and to get their you have to cut through an area that seems keyed to women's leisure wear.  Anyhow there was this huge image of a romantic couple (male/female) with the big caption 'VAMPIRE DIARIES" and a product that is being marketed in connection with the show.  I think it was some kind of cologne or perfume, but I am not sure.

The cards for these stanchions are going to be fabulous collectibles for fans of this series.  The one I saw was gorgeous.  I'm sure you've all seen them.  Just really saying that even without watching TV or paying attention (all my friends seem to watch True Blood instead), I periodically become aware of just how big this show is.
