Oh my god!

If the opening sequence is anything like the rest of the movie, this is going to be incredible! So creepy, but really effective.
I am a firm believer in serendipity- all the random pieces coming together in one wonderful moment, when suddenly you see what their purpose was all along.

Holy crap, I love it! The overture is a perfect blend of Sondheim and that signature sound we expect from a Burton film.

Chills...I cannot wait!

At this rate, I'll have seen the whole film in three minute clips by the time it premieres. Not that I'm really complaining. That was amazing. I can't wait to see it on the big screen.

Resist the temptation to watch this!!

It is one of the best parts of the movie, you are definitely spoiling a great treat by experiencing it for the first time on a computer screen! :)

This video needs to come with a warning! Not necessarily "spoilers" but oh-gawd the will-power it takes (of which I'm currently lacking) to NOT click!

How freaking AWESOME! I mean, step back and ask yourself how AWESOME it is to be hearing Sondheim's MUSIC and Tunick's ORCHESTRATION on a HOLLYWOOD screen!

I mean really, step back and think of it. Think of all the millions of ears those musical notes are falling on and how many millions of hairs are standing on-end in theatres across America... and SO MANY people hearing it all for the first time!

I'm taking my entire family as a Christmas gift :)

Really amazing stuff. It brought the lyrics of the Ballad to life - "freely flows the blood of those who moralize". Fantastic.

Ooo I freaking love it! After the opening credits finished I was expecting it to go into the film, but then realized it was just a clip re: BWW TV Exclusive: Opening Credits of Burton's Sweeney Todd only a few more weeks!

It gave me chills.

I'm weird but I didn't like it. I mean, I think it was well done for what it was, but I felt like I was watching "Chuckie" being remade in one of those horror movie sequels that what I imagined Sweeney's titles would be...I guess I imagined more roving over London, meeting all those nameless characters in their depravity.

All the blood in the movie looks fake. In a good way. It's called art direction. There is a conversation going on about this on talkinbroadway.com. For some reason word has gotten out that this is a naturalistic slasher movie like Friday the 13th. Maybe that's what the studio wants to appeal to young men, but the blood is not at all realistic. It's spectacular though.

I thought it was perfect!

I think this credits sequence is OBVIOUSLY supposed to be animated. So yeah, the blood looks fake.

OH MY GOD, I AM SO EXCITED.

michael bennet - no **** sherlock, I know what art direction is. But i thought the blood looks cheap and not well done. I KNOW it's supposed to look fake, but it looked like a video game - is that what they were after? I don't think so, but even if they were, I still thought it looked bad.

Well, Brian, than you will be sorely disappointed in the movie. Yes that is what it looks like in the film.

The blood reminded me of the black crap from Spiderman 3. Nevertheless, I can't friggin' wait.

I have vowed not to watch this....I want to be surpised when i see the film in a cinema, this releasing of whole songs, the opening and a few other scenes is getting out of hand.

Well I didn't want to get into it, but he's a Satanist. Every full moon he sacrifices 4 puppies to the Dark Lord and smears their blood on his paino. This should help you understand the score for Wicked a little bit more. Tazber's: Reply to Is Stephen Schwartz a Practicing Christian

rosscoe(au)... I'm beginning to get overly anxious now too. Might have to start putting my foot down. It's only 9 days away. I think I'm going to go cold-turkey until movie-time.

michael bennet - i'm not going to be dissapointed in the film (i think)....just maybe in the blood:) I'm all for stylized movies (LOVED SIN CITY) but it just didn't look well done to me...just my two cents.

You have to see it on the big screen. Like I said, I think people are largely spoiled (in a bad way) by watching so much of the movie on small screen computer moniters.

Meh. Didn't do anything for me. I concur with Brian and Buffy. However, the score sounded good.
