Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Tim Burton and Johnny Depp are back together again to bring the blood-letting musical, Sweeny Todd, to the big screen in all of its gothic and crimson glory. Johnny Depp goes on a limb and sings in this production unlike the lip syncing he did in John Water's cult classic, Cry Baby. One of the best moment's in the film is when Johnny Deep and Helena Bonham Carter are together on the screen and the scene looks like it was lifted directly from the Corpse Bride, Burton's stop-motion animated film that starred Depp and Carter as well. Don't let the fact that this is a musical starring Depp fool you in to bringing the little ones to the show - Pirates of the Caribbean this is not. This is another great collaboration that seems to prove that Burton and Depp together can do no wrong.
