Paramount and Dreamworks Home Entertainment have released the final disc specs and cover art for Sweeney Todd: the Demon Barber of Fleet Street starring Johnny Depp, coming to Blu-ray Disc on October 21.
Sweeney Todd was originally scheduled for an April 1 HD DVD release. It was no laughing matter when Paramount and Dreamworks pulled the plug on HD DVD support naming Beowulf as the final title released on the format, due one week before Sweeney Todd.
