From visionary filmmaker Tim Burton (“Batman,” “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”) and starring Academy Award® and Golden Globe nominee Johnny Depp (“Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” the “Pirates of the Caribbean” trilogy) comes the new dramatic thriller, “Sweeney Todd The Demon Barber of Fleet Street,” a compelling and original vision based on the award-winning musical sensation.
Depp stars as Benjamin Barker, a man unjustly imprisoned for 15 years on the other side of the world, who escapes back to London with a vow of revenge, opposite Helena Bonham Carter as his obsessively devoted accomplice, Mrs. Nellie Lovett.
Adopting the guise of Sweeney Todd, Barker returns to his old barber shop above Mrs. Lovett’s pie-making premises, and sets his sights on Judge Turpin (Alan Rickman) who, with help from his nefarious henchman Beadle Bamford (Timothy Spall), shipped him off on a trumped-up charge in order to steal his wife, Lucy (Laura Michelle Kelly), and his baby daughter from him.
The film is directed by Tim Burton from a screenplay by John Logan, music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, based on his Tony Award-winning musical “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street”.
