The Barber and the Baker

The Sweeney Todd onslaught has begun ... first, two more poster images above, which means there's now like, 722 of them. Note the Saw-like body parts sticking out of Mrs. Lovett's meat pies ... cool, in an "ew" kind of way.

A slew of film clips, featurettes and behind-the-scene footage popped up over at IESB.net this week (Playbill.com has a rundown of their contents if you want to wait and see the movie spoiler free), including Stephen Sondheim in a mini-"making of" and the first extensive looks at Alan Rickman and Sacha Baron Cohen in character. Meanwhile, the CW aired a brief promo recently, wherein Johnny Depp describes the movie as Tim Burton's "giant salute to classic horror films".

Playbill also has the track lists for the two versions of the upcoming soundtrack album (currently available for pre-orderfrom Amazon.com). If you can't wait that long though, you can hear some of the music now by visiting the movie's official website, now live and filled with image galleries and various downloads, including countdown banners like the one sitting near the bottom of this page. And for you Depp fans, you can enter for a chance to meet the demon barber himself at Sweeney's own My Space page (and while you're there, check out Movie Dearest's very own page as well).
