Dark Shadows: Buried for 200 years, a vampire (Johnny Depp) tries to help his relatives return to their former glory. Based on the cult-favorite 1970s soap opera, this melodrama-satire-horror film, Depp's latest collaboration with director Tim Burton, rarely succeeds.

People Like Us: After his father dies, a salesman (Chris Pine) is surprised to learn he has a sister (Elizabeth Banks). It's Hollywood hokum, but the actors are great.
