Sweeney Todd Trailer

This looks epic, really epic. This is the one you've been waiting for, the musical Sweeney Todd starring Johnny Depp and directed by Tim Burton. It's dark, it's moody, and it's musical, all wrapped up into one! The buzz is that this may be up for a number of Oscar categories, but looking at how dark and playful it is, I'm not sure I can agree right away. Either way this is a trailer you must watch, as it'll be one of this Holiday season's big movies to see. Beware - Sweeney Todd is coming!

There's one thing I've got to say, though: this trailer is a mess! They butchered the hell out of it! It only features one song that seems entirely out of place and is a hurried, jumbled and terrible trailer. I know this will help sell the film, but not as much as it could have. What happened Paramount? Why don't you have a better trailer than this!

Did I see Sacha Baren Cohen (aka Borat) in there?!

Nate on Oct 4, 2007


OMG...looks great. Tim Burton is a genius. Yes that was Sacha Baren Cohen.

i love the feeling of tim burton movies there just so magical like bigfish and can be amazingly dark like this

kevin on Oct 4, 2007


The only problem is how can anything musical be epic, much less really epic, best bet: entertaining.

Khona on Oct 4, 2007


Looks like a real tough sell, not sure if they are aiming for musical, drama or dark dark dark comedy.

[...] FirstShowing also has a larger version of the trailer while the high definition cut can be streamed over at Yahoo Movies. [...]

i really love sweeney tood! loved the TV series about it i have also seen the stage show. im not sure if having johnny depp as sweeney will work. he has shown he can do crazy roles but not sure if he has the 'sweeney' look about him. fingers crossed it work. i love Tim Burton n want this to work like his other films.

I wish the trailer had blood in it so I could get the full effect of the story (maybe a bit more music too)

Charlie on Oct 5, 2007


Khona... Sweeney Todd is already epic. It's considered to be some of Stephen Sondheim's best work. And it's definitely the most popular show out of them all. Sondheim is an absolute genius and when you hear the music in this film, you'll see why. No one composes like that man does.

chyea.... sweeney todd is pretty much the most awesomely possumly musical ever. I think the movie is going to be amazing visually, however i am not sure the leads can stand up to the demanding music. but we shall see

Anna on Oct 18, 2007


this movie is but a remake of a 1936 British movie by the same name: Deja Vu !

Sweeney Todd on Oct 20, 2007


this movie is going to be AMAZING. 🙂

Hannah on Nov 7, 2007


Johnny Depp, IMO, is the best actor of his/our generation. Tim Burton, likewise as a director. Especially when the two of them work together (amazing how Edward Scissorhands was overlooked for acting lead for Depp and direction for Burton, not to mention set design ... did it win for costumes?), the end product is astounding. Don't overlook Alan Rickman, either: possibly the best supporting actor/character actor around these days.

Hobbes on Nov 21, 2007

I love Johnny Depp in this movie and Tim Burton made a good movie. Have you seen Sleepy Hollow with Johnny Depp??? It's good but scary.
