Default Sweeney Todd Blu-ray

I know there has been no official announcement about a Sweeney Todd Blu-ray. But, on FYE's website, they have an advertisement for it with a price of 20.99 after rebate. Possibly an error on their part, but thought i would throw it out there.

Seems more like a website error... The ad says Blu-ray but when you click the banner it says HD with a release date of April 1...

on the avs thread, it said that the domestic release had to be cut to not get a nc-17 rating, so it might be a substancial difference between the domestic and uk cuts of the film

A bit on the different cuts according to IMDb:

The final act in the US version uses different angles than the International version of the film during some extra violent deaths. The different angles focus more on Sweeney instead of the immense amounts of blood that can be seen more vividly in the International cut. All in all it only amounts to around 3-5 seconds that are actually different and were needed in order to get the R-Rating in the US.

It's coming out in the UK in a couple of weeks I think. Most likely the international version.
