Bloodsucker Depp plays with dinosaurs in 6 new Dark Shadows pics

Johnny Depp's pasty white alter ego—centuries-old vampire extraordinaire Barnabas Collins— is a cursed bloodsucker, a fiend of the night, a death dealer ... and a grown-up guy playing with dinosaur toys? Wait, what? Yep, he is! And you can check it out in these six new cool Dark Shadows stills.

The upcoming Tim Burton retro/kitsch/disco/comedic take on the classic 1960s series will be out in exactly a month (May 11), and we're being showered again with brand-new stills that manage to further whet our appetites for the upcoming ''gothic'' film.

While we know the movie will be anything but serious (if the trailers and the pics have taught us anything at all—it's that), we're actually quite curious to see Burton's take on the beloved (if dysfunctional) Collinwood clan.

Dark Shadows also stars Eva Green, Michelle Pfeiffer, Chloe Moretz, Jackie Earle Haley, Bella Heathcote, Helena Bonham Carter, Ray Shirley and Jonny Lee Miller. The silliness is set to begin on May 11, 2012.

What do you think of those new pics? Do you think director Tim Burton's controversial take on the original series will work? Will you go see it?
