A new Sweeney Todd Movie Trailer has found it’s way onto the interwebs. This one features less singing and music (not that the first one featured too much), and more than expected blood and gore. It looks like Paramount is going to market this film to a couple different audiences, and this may be our first peek at what the horror/thriller advertising will look like. Check out the trailer after the jump.
You can watch the new trailer through the embed-able player below thanks to nonesuch.com. You can also rewatch the first Sweeney Todd trailer here.
