Take one mad barber, hell-bent on revenge and one mad pie-lady hell-bent on making pies out of the people he kills, add the music of famous gayer Stephen Sondheim, a lick of Tim Burton, the combined talents of Johnny Depp and Helena Bottom Carter and what have you got?
Sweeney Todd, silly. Only the most-looked-forward-to movie of the year. OK, apart from the Golden Compass. And Elizabeth: The Golden Age. And some other films with the word ‘Golden’ in them.
Have a look at this trailer and see what we mean. And does it seem like they are trying to pretend it’s not a musical to you?
