First Sweeney pic

08.10.2007

Thanks to schmoe estraordinaire Dan, we have our first non-poster look at Johnny Depp as the titular psychotically murderous barber in SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET alongside Helena Bonham Carter as the equally psychotically murderous and apparently pale-faced Mrs. Lovett. The picture is, not surprisingly, quite Tim-Burton-ian. The film opens January 11th.

Sweeney Todd

Extra Tidbit: Annette Bening, Toni Collette, Cyndi Lauper and Emma Thompson were all considered for the role of Mrs. Lovett.

I hear a lot of people saying this looks too similar to "Edward Scissorhands".

Well rest assured, if you`ve seen the play than you`d know that "Sweeney Todd" will NOT be anything like "Edward"!

Considered for the role of Mrs Lovett

As much as I think she is a brilliant actress, you can't make us believe that HBC was a kind of last resort. She has been cast in every Burton film since Planet of the Apes when they met and became a couple. Shes part of the Burton repertoire now!

And besides Helena Bonham Carter is not a bad actress at all, she way better that Lisa Marie and I know Burton knows this so she uses her more. And yeah, that scene looks totally Burtonesque, and that's the reason it gets me excited.

Zaika, on the offchance you weren't being sarcastic, she's currently pregnant with her second child with Burton. So, yeah,she probably has a pretty good chance of getting the female leads.

Weird!

I just saw the pic and at first glance thought it was a pic from Edward Scissorhands. I'll go check the flick out just because it's Burton and Depp!

Sweeney!

Looks good, Johnny Depp is always cool and Tim Burton is best when he does dark/horror films.

I don't really believe the extra tidbit, I'm sure from the start Burton was thinking of Helena. Any major awkward female role is going to his wife.

Man, I haven't seen that style before...



Seriously though, Burton does things well but flicks with the same actors and the same visual style tend to blend together. Too early to say but yeah.

TB should mix it up more like what he did with Big Fish.
