First Look at Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
I know there should be quite a bit of buzz building for Sweeney Todd already, especially with a planned December opening, but there hasn't been anything. Even a good friend of mine was saying it was the most exciting thing she was looking forward to at Comic-Con, until all they debuted was a teaser poster (and that's it). For those unaware, this is director Tim Burton's next - based on a Broadway musical it stars Johnny Depp as Sweeney Todd, a barber in London who murders people as they get their hair cut.
This first photo comes compliments of SlashFilm, so send all your thanks to them! That's his crazy fellow tenant Mrs. Lovett, played by Burton's wife Helena Bonham Carter, in the photo as well.
According to our sources, Sweeney Todd hits limited theaters on December 21st. The only issue is that it's supposed to open limited with expansions starting January 11th, so watch your local theater listing in late December/early January.
