Sweeney Boring. Is anyone else like me totally indifferent to Sweeney Todd, a film which should have been one of the most anticipated of the year? Seeing the trailer is like watching Tim Burton do the same damn thing again for the 11,000th time it seems. Hey look, Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham-Nepotism are pale and in a gothic setting! It's rare! I'll admit, I'm very not a die-hard Tim Burton fan but the guy needs to change gears STAT.
Tim Burton is indeed to remake Frankenweenie for Disney, along with his addaption of Alice in Wonderland; also a stop motion/sortof like the new movie, Beowulf. Read more about it at http://www.empireonline.com.
