'Inaccurate' Sweeney Todd Promo Campaign Scrapped
Film bosses have been forced to withdraw posters promoting JOHNNY DEPP's new movie SWEENEY TODD because of major historical inaccuracies. In the poster, leading actor Depp sits in front of a large skylight with famous London landmark Big Ben clearly visible in the background. But the Tim Burton movie is based in the early 19th century - 15 years before the clocktower was built. And after complaints from angry movie fans, studio bosses decided to scrap the posters and have a new version rushed into production to publicise the film's release later this month (Dec07).
