The film adaptation of the Broadway musical Sweeney Todd, which stars Harry Potter actors Alan Rickman (Prof. Snape), Timothy Spall (Peter Pettigrew), and Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix), will hit theatres in the United States on Friday, December 21.
According to the Playbill article, the Tim Burton movie "was originally scheduled to open in limited release and then go wide Jan. 11, 2008 because the powers that be felt the musical's dark storyline would be less commercial than previous movie musicals. However, after executives began seeing 'Sweeney' clips, they realized the film could have wider appeal than originally believed. The film is expected to receive an R rating."
