Sweeney Todd Movie Poster Contest

deviantART, Tim Burton, Johnny Depp, Sweeney Todd. What more could you want in one sentence? How about poster contest? That’s right, deviantART is happy to present the Sweeney Todd Poster Contest for the upcoming movie, in theatres December 21st.

Sweeney Todd once again sees the long time duo of Tim Burton and Johnny Depp working together again, with Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, Sacha Baron Cohen and many others in this interpretation of Stephen Sondheim’s critically acclaimed and award winning musical, Sweeney Todd.

It is the imaginative tale of a man sent to prison for crimes he didn’t commit, who seeks ultimate revenge upon release for the tragic events that befell his wife and daughter while incarcerated. He becomes the Demon Barber of Fleet Street who “shaved the heads of gentlemen who never thereafter were heard from again.

And what better community to reinvent the movie poster for this wickedly delightful movie than this one? So how does one go about cutting into this with gleeful abandon, sharpened shears at the ready?

Read on!

im not pleased right now. (1) because i entered this contest. (2) because i've been waiting and waiting for an announcement. (3) mainly because i've been waiting.

if this is the way contests will be conducted on deviantart, i will no longer enter.
just by the way this was conducted, i am now having mixed messages about deviantart and its stability to maintain an enjoyable community. i am not mad because i didnt win, i am mad because i wasnt aware of the winning entries. i dont see a [link] anywhere to the winning entries. In my opinion, that is lame.
