"It has been Burton-ized"
Who needs coffee when you can look at photos of Tim Burton's new take on Alice In Wonderland??? We brought you the first look of Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter way back in november. But this new pic is colorful, and just as breathtaking as it is alarming. It's clear in these new photos from USA Today that Alice In Wonderland will have Burton's signature all over it... would we want it any other way?
We finished shooting in December after only 40 days. Now the live action is being merged with CG animation and motion-capture creatures, and then transferred into 3-D.
Explained Wonderland producer Richard Zanuck. Everything seems right on schedule for the film's March 2010 release. He also confirms early reports that Burton's take will serve more as a sequel to the Lewis Carroll classic.
Alice, 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.
So with this continuing of the tale, rather than a remaking, die hards are sure to be more accepting of this retelling than they were of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. And by they, I mean me. Here's a look at some more eye candy with Helena Bonham Carter as the Queen of Hearts and Anne Hathaway as the White Queen. What do you think of these new photos? Does this get you excited? Or make YOU want to crawl down a hole?
