Product Description

Johnny Depp and Tim Burton join forces again in a big-screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's award-winning musical thriller "Sweeney Todd." Depp stars in the title role as a man unjustly sent to prison who vows revenge, not only for that cruel punishment, but for the devastating consequences of what happened to his wife and daughter. When he returns to reopen his barber shop, Sweeney Todd becomes the Demon Barber of Fleet Street who "shaved the heads of gentlemen who never thereafter were heard from again." Joining Depp is Helena Bonham Carter as Mrs. Lovett, Sweeney's amorous accomplice, who creates diabolical meat pies. The cast also includes Alan Rickman, who portrays the evil Judge Turpin, who sends Sweeney to prison and Timothy Spall as the Judge's wicked associate Beadle Bamford and Sacha Baron Cohen is a rival barber, the flamboyant Signor Adolfo Pirelli.

Additional Features

On disc 1, along with the movie, is the 26-minute "Burton + Depp + Carter = Todd," consisting of interviews with Tim Burton and the major cast members (Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, Ed Sanders) talking about a variety of topics, including the challenge of singing the difficult score. Alan Rickman says, "One of the more challenging moments in one’s life is when you’ve got the music in your hand and you’re in a huge rehearsal room and Stephen Sondheim walks across the room and says, 'OK, let’s hear it.' It doesn’t get much tougher than that." Disc 2 is filled with a number of fairly substantial featurettes and other bonuses. Focusing on the movie are a 24-minute making-of featurette, "Designs for a Demon Barber" (costumes and sets, 9 minutes), and "A Bloody Business" (violent special effects, 9 minutes). "Musical mayhem: Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd" (12 minutes) focuses on the score, and to those who complain about the changes the movie made, the composer says "Leave your memories at the door." There's also a light-hearted 20-minute press conference from November 2007 with Burton, Depp, Bonham Carter, Rickman, Timothy Spall, and producer Richard Zanuck, and "Moviefone Unscripted (11 min.) in which Burton and Depp answer caller questions. "Sweeney Todd Is Alive: The Real History of the Demon Barber" and "Sweeney's London" (20 and 16 minutes, respectively) trace the historical/legendary character Sweeney Todd and his time, and "Grand Guignol: A Theatrical Tradition" analyzes the macabre style on which the play was based. Finally, there are "The Razor's Refrain" (stills set to audio clips, 8 minutes), a photo gallery of stills and drawings, and the theatrical trailer. --David Horiuchi
