The infamous story of Benjamin Barker, aka Sweeney Todd, who sets up a barber shop in London which is the basis for a sinister partnership with his fellow tenant, Mrs. Lovett.
The extra-large jacket worn by Johnny Depp is a Belstaff dark leather trench, designed exclusively for the movie.
I have sailed the world, beheld its wonders, from the Dardanelles to the mountains of Peru. But there's no place like London.
Sweeney Todd: No, there's no place like London.
Anthony Hope: Mr. Todd?
Sweeney Todd: You are young. Life has been kind to you. You will learn.
When Sweeney is holding up his blade with blood on it, from some shots it has blood dripping down it, and in other shots it has blood smeared on it.
The final act in the US version uses different angles than the International version of the film during some extra violent deaths. The different angles focus more Sweeney instead of the immense amounts of blood that can be seen more vividly in the International cut. All in all it only amounts to around 3-5 seconds that are actually different and were needed in order to get the R-Rated in the US.
