Gossip site Perez Hilton has posted the first photos of Johnny Depp as the title character of director Tim Burton’s Sweeney Todd. You can find the pics here!

DreamWorks Pictures and Warner Bros. have also set a December 21 release for the movie, which puts it directly up against Nicolas Cage sequel National Treasure: Book of Secrets.

In the adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s award-winning musical thriller, Depp plays a man unjustly sent to prison, who vows revenge not only for that cruel punishment but for the devastating consequences of what happened to his wife and daughter. When he returns to reopen his barber shop, he becomes the Demon Barber of Fleet Street who “shaved the heads of gentleman who never thereafter were heard from again.”
