Sweeney Todd Trailer

Although the very first trailer for Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street came out a few weeks ago to much rejoicing, I was a bit bothered by it. There was too much in it and it wasn't edited well. As much as they wanted to show it was a musical, that random moment where Johnny Depp starts singing in the streets was a bit, how should I say, odd? This newest trailer is truly how it should be seen - as bloody and as violent and scary as it will be. And it doesn't have the random singing, is edited well, and has some intense music the full way throughout.

We're working on bringing you a higher quality version than the YouTube cut. Please check back in the next few days. We'll update it with the better quality version once we have it. Thanks for your patience!

Watch the trailer for Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street:

Yeah, but isn't it a musical? If it IS a musical AND they don't market it as one this thing is going to go down faster than the Titanic. Vic on Oct 20, 2007


I agree with you there, Vic, but they're in the middle, not one way or another. The first trailer was too mixed... It was terrible to all of a sudden show one out-of-place song and then continue on... It just didn't fit?! The second was better because it didn't do that and was thrilling just like a real full trailer should be! Now what would be good is a trailer with a medley of songs like the trailer for Hairspray - that was a great trailer for a musical. That's why I was complaining...

This one was worse than the first I think. Little shows the cinetography and I don't think Sweeny Todd is too popular of a musical and by the looks of it it looks like a visually messed up Tim Burton horror. I agree with Vic that this thing will bomb the way its going. And I seriously don't think much of Depp's audience are over 17 that will see the movie. Most Pirate fans are still under the age and I don't think they would much care to see a musical. I have little faith in this and would not bet my money. Really sucky Oscar year with poor reviews for almost everything. I really hope Zodiac and Mighty Heart have a chance now because they are the only **** movies that came out now.
