'Dark Shadows': First look of Johnny Depp as Barnabus

This is weird. As much as Johnny Depp and Tim Burton's collaborations have yielded some great results (and sometimes not so much), it's really starting to feel like the duo is trying really hard to pull off a "Johnny Depp and Tim Burton collaboration."

Both reportedly have a love of the original Dark Shadows, so maybe they'll pull off the 2012 film adaptation/update, but what's going on with this image? To quote Badass Digest's David Faraci, this looks like "Michael Jackson cosplaying as the Joker."
