Nothing says holiday cheer like the story of a murderous 19th century barber hell bent on revenge, right? Your first look at Tim Burton‘s Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is online!

Yahoo Movies has the first trailer for the Christmas 2007 film, which stars Johnny Depp as a wrongfully imprisoned man who returns to London with a new name, a decidedly darker outlook on life, and a vendetta against the men who devastated his life and family.

Sweeney Todd

As in the Broadway play adapted from the oft-told tale, Sweeney Todd (Depp) is out for vengeance against the dastardly judge (Alan Rickman) who put him in jail for 15 years. Upon his return, Todd finds his wife is dead and his daughter is now a ward of his enemy, and sets out to get revenge on those he holds responsible. He re-opens his barber shop (“I will guarantee the closest shave you will ever know…”) with the help of his landlady (Helena Bonham Carter), who bakes the bodies of Sweeney Todd’s victims into the meat pies she sells in her shop. Delicious!

The Sweeney Todd trailer gives us our first look at the film, which has all the best elements of a Tim Burton project: Johnny Depp, a touch of the macabre, social misfits, and HBC. Unfortunately for us squeamish types, Sweeney appears to be headed for R-territory stateside, promising lots of the red stuff seeing as it’s about a guy who kills people in a barber chair with a straight razor.

Click on over through the link below to watch the trailer (and keep an eye out for Sacha Baron Cohen as a showboating rival barber).
