And from http://www.mtv.co.uk more Sweeney premire coverage
Hollywood’s biggest heartthrob causes chaos as he appears for the Sweeney Todd premiere…
Johnny Depp was in Leicester Square last night for the Sweeney Todd premiere.
The dreamboat wore a sparkling black jacket and his trademark glasses and told MTV News he was amazed by the fans who greeted him: “It's always surprising that anyone shows up at all,” Depp said.
He continued: “What is super-sweet is the idea that these people come out and support you to this degree. They stay in this cold weather for all these hours, but these people are the only reason we're all here, they're our bosses you know."
Sweeney Todd is directed by frequent Depp collaborator Tim Burton (Sleepy Hollow, Willy Wonka, Edward Scissorhands) whose partner Helena Bonham Carter also stars in the film.
Alan Rickman and Timothy Spall- who also appear in the gory musical- were on the red carpet too.

More on Alice in Wonderland, Burton's next project, from http://jam.canoe.ca
BURTON IN WONDERLAND: Legendary producer Richard Zanuck isn't kidding when he says if you want something from Tim Burton, you have to go through him.
Fr'instance, as his Sweeney Todd gets fluffed for awards season (including today's lower-key Golden Globes), Burton is cagey about rumours that his next project will be a dark adaptation of Alice In Wonderland.
What does he have to say about it? "Nothing, it's a great book, nice dresses, whatever," Burton says.
His producer, however, is more forthcoming.
"I'm pretty sure that's his next movie and I'm going to be on that with him," says the 74-year-old Zanuck in a separate interview. "We haven't started doing anything yet, but there's a script already written and ready to go," he says, referencing the Writers Guild strike.
Burton and Zanuck have been a team since Planet of the Apes (an ironic pairing because Zanuck greenlit the original Charlton Heston movie when he was head of Fox in the '60s.).
"I will say this," says Zanuck, "Of all the directors I've worked with, John Huston, George Cukor, George Roy Hill, Willie Wyler, there's no one who's given me more pleasure to watch than Tim. He's so visual and so instinctive.
"Many times during the shooting of all the pictures we've done together, when we're about to start a new scene, I've put myself to sleep trying to imagine how he will visually attack that scene. And I've never been right. He always surprises me the next morning."

Actor Johnny Depp says he never wanted to be an actor and that music was his "first love".
Depp is currently promoting his new movie Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street, reports contactmusic.com. Depp sings his own songs in the movie and reveals that he became interested in movies only because there was more money to make.
Depp is famous for his unconventional roles like Edward Scissorhands in the 1994 Tim Burton comedy Ed Wood.
He says, "I never wanted to be an actor. It just seemed like a good way to make easy money. I didn't care what the movies were. If they're going to pay me, fine."
Depp joined a rock band in his teens and played at parties in his neighbourhood. Depp called playing at parties "absolute perfection" and felt he was meant to be in music.He added, "It was freedom. Right off the bat, there was no question: I had found my future."
