Johnny Depp TOO HOOT for words @ Sweeney Todd Premiere in New York

I completely died and went to heaven when I saw these photos! How do you say more than drop death gorgeous!?
Anyway what really mattered yesterday at NYC was the premiere of the biggest movie for this Christmas, ‘Sweeney Todd- The Demon Barber of Fleet Street’.

Critics are dropping at Johnny’s feet after they saw the movie:
“Assembled artistic combo assures the film will reap by far the biggest audience to see a pure Sondheim musical, although just how big depends on the upscale crowd’s tolerance for buckets of blood, and the degree to which the masses stay away due to the whiff of the highbrow. In all events, DreamWorks-Paramount and Warner Bros. have a classy and reasonably commercial delicacy on their hands.” — Variety
“Depp is the movie’s heart and guts… The musical numbers ooze with Sondheim’s audacious wit and scathing lyrics… Teaming with Depp, his long-time alter ego, Burton makes Sweeney a smoldering dark pit of fury and hate that consumes itself. With his sturdy acting and surprisingly good voice, Depp is a Sweeney Todd for the ages.” — The Hollywood Reporter
“This is the film to beat for Best Picture this year; the only “big” picture that is also a work of art. Academy voters should eat it up, pun intended.” — FOX News
The DailyMail found a little big mistake that of course doesn’t make a difference. Johnny is still the best and the movie rocks!!
In a poster for his new movie Johnny Depp sits by an attic skylight, with the Big Ben clock tower visible through the glass.
Unfortunately the film, about Sweeney Todd, is set in the early 19th century - 50 years before the famous tower was built.
