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.

Sweeney Todd

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.

Nice pic but like you said a teaser or full trailler would be nice.

Um, Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton aren't married, maybe do a better job checking your facts?

Argh, really? Thanks for pointing that out Jessica... I think they're engaged - they have 2 kids! They're practically married - everything but... 🙂

Does anyone else think Johnny Depp is looking a bit like an older Edward Scissorhands with that hair? It even looks like he is hanging out it the Scissorhands attic for pete's sake!

Yeah, I agree he really does look like Edward scissorhands and the attic too.!

What do we expect, it's freakin Tim Burton. Lots of shades of black and grey and heavy on the facial powder. And let me guess, a thick mist outside. Looks more like Sleepy Hollow to me. But even after all of that, I'm still excited to see this particular film. I've seen the musical and it's pretty sick, but in an entertaining way. I like Depp as an actor and think he'll add a new dimension to Todd.

I would really like to receive some information when it becomes available. I am interested to know if there will be a premiere for this movie? If so, when and where? I also will be watching for the 1st movie showing in my area. Thanks 🙂
