“We’re all going to get greased up after this,” announces Johnny Depp, a cheeky smirk obscured by his famously disheveled hair. “We’re going to take some psychedelics, grease up and get in the pool. You’re all welcome to come.”

In his latest Tim Burton collaboration, Johnny Depp skewers his dreamboat rep (and apparent intransience – the guy turns 49 in a month!), playing Barnabas Collins, an affluent, Georgian-era cad turned vampire. Damned by the lovesick witch Angelique (Eva Green) to eternal life as a cadaverous blood-sucker when he affiances the virginal Josette (Bella Heathcote), he is entombed for two centuries, then, quite by accident, exhumed into the chintzy-glam world of small-town America, 1972, where he finds his lineage dwindled, the grand family estate languishing in near-ruin, and – gasp! – Angelique, nattily pants-suited and working overtime to ensure the Collins’ decline.
