Johnny Depp and director Tim Burton reteam following their worldwide blockbuster Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to bring a Broadway masterpiece to the big screen--Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Based on true events, this darkly comic musical tale tells the story of London barber Benjamin Barker (Depp--Finding Neverland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) unjustly sentenced to a prison term in Australia by a judge who covets Barker's wife. When Barker returns to England, he takes up his former profession, using the name Sweeney Todd--and slits the throats of customers who come into his shop. Now, while Sweeney confronts the problem of accumulating corpses, a local businesswoman finds a novel and enterprising use for the bodies . . . a bloody business that profits them both.
