Oh, hell yes.

Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!

Coming this Christmas to a theater near you... Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, based on the musical by Stephen Sondheim.

It gets better: It's being directed by Tim Burton, and stars Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman and Sacha Baron Cohen. I get chills just typing that.

And, in case you aren't thrilled enough by the description, here's one of the first photos from the set:



Yeowzers. Revenge never looked so good.

  1. Excuse me dropping by but are there any other Sweeney Todd photos anywhere? There has been so little coming out from this movie anything is pounced upon.

  2. This is the best I could could find. However, I did scrounge up some more shots of Johnny Depp in costume. See them at:

    Also, you can find the movie poster (which is excellently creepy) at:
