I am *really* looking forward to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland movie (due out in March 2010).
Johnny Depp is playing the Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter is the Red Queen, and Anne Hathaway is the White Queen. Also starring are Alan Rickman as Caterpillar, Christopher Lee as the Jabberwock and Mia Wasikowska as Alice herself.
Alice, aged 17, attends a party at a Victorian estate only to find she is about to be proposed to in front of hundreds of snooty society types. Off she runs, following a white rabbit into a hole and ending up in Wonderland, a place she visited 10 years before yet doesn’t remember.
New production images have been released today, ready to hit cinemas worldwide, and they look amazing! (These images have been sourced from USA Today)
Hoping that it looks as dark and twisted as it’s coming across in all of the pre-release stuff. So much that you could do with this story, and I hope that it’s done well! A gothic twist could be just what this story needs!
Great to see Depp and Bonham Carter together again – they will no doubt fit the roles well – however it’d be interesting to see Burton mix the casting up a bit his future movies 😉
