Sweeney Todd Poster

Sweeney Todd Poster

When it comes to anything related to Tim Burton’s work we can generally expect something dark and a bit weird, but also with a strange sense of humor to it. This poster for Sweeney Todd mostly lacks any humor at all. But otherwise it fits. It’s very dark, not only in it’s color but also in the mood it transmits, with the few splashes of blood red making it especially creepy. And it looks quite weird, both in the visual style which makes the image look like a very realistic drawing and in the choice of setting and of “camera angle”.

Johnny Depp gets prominent placement in the poster, which is to be expected. After all he plays the title character and is the main draw in the film, from a marketing perspective. And I have to say, his expression adds a lot to the poster. Even in a still he is still able to transmit so much with his face. Impressive.

I’m sure many people will will be a little repulsed by the darkness of this poster. Me? Well, I’m more interested than ever in the movie.

    [...] I mentioned this briefly in an earlier recap but this poster for Sweeney Todd really deserves to be shown off. It’s so wonderfully designed that it immediately captures the interest of passers-by. The color scheme and overall look and fee of the one-sheet also instantly brand it as a Tim Burton film to anyone paying the least bit of attention. [via MPA] [...]

    That’s a bold move, partially covering your title like that – but, if anyone has the guts and cache to pull it off, it’s Burton (and Depp).

    As for the overall look, it’s a meh for me. Not wildly original in concept or execution, really.

    i love his movie Edwards Scissorhands, i think it is one of Johnny Depp’s best performance aside from Pirates of the Caribbean..`;
