Default New Warner/DreamWorks movie (Sweeney Todd)

I got a flyer in local college newspaper for a movie with Jonny depp. It is directed by Tim Burton and it is being distributed by WB and Dreamworks? Isn't Dreamworks exclusive to Paramount?

Here is a link to some info on the movie

Ive heard of this movie. Its a musical. Depp is supposed to play a murderer barber rofl. I think it should be good. Itd be funny if it comes out on both formats...but one of the two is bound to own distribution rights....damn....

Warner Bros. Pictures (2007) (non-USA) (all media)

Yes, this one will be region free on Blu-ray from the UK.

Talk is Depp is going to get an oscar nod for this from the early buzz on the movie.

we've heard of the "Warner effect" effect Audio/Video quality, well this is a positive side of the "Warner effect" just as they hold to the poor a/v quality they also hold on to the region free encoding for BD we pwn! and it'll only get better for us when they go BD exclusive

The trailer for Sweeney Todd is actually on a BD that I watched recently. I think it was The Reaping but I don't remember for sure. Hopefully that's an indication that we'll be able to get this on Blu. Looks like it's going to be a pretty good flick

edit: That trailer could also have been on Transformers S-DVD that I rented. I'll check when I get home tonight.

If it was on the Reaping we might actually get it on Blu since its warner. Here's hoping!

the movie looks like absolute crap belonging on the red side....only pirates 1 was really a good movie with depp, and edward scissorhands and secret window were solid movies, combine him with a terrible plot, and sweeney todd is the result

And also this is based on a highly acclaimed Broadway Musical. The subject matter just begs to be adapted by Tim Burton. But saying that I have never seen it so I don't know if I would like it or not, but apparently plenty of people did like the musical.

Don't have to take our word on the original musical--
See for yourself...
