Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland first pictures



http://infdaily.fusebox.com/2008/09/...onderland.html

I look forward to finding out that Alice had untold dark and traumatic childhood that alienated her from the rest of society.


Seriously it looks great. We got Nightmare before Christmas the last time Burton and Disney worked together so my expectations are high. Depp as the Mad Hatter is also a nice bonus.

Yes lol we need that gothic chorus from batman returns and edward scissorhands to make an appearance. Now who's Helena Bonham Carter going to play? They've already got Johnny Depp. The Burton trifecta must be complete!

The pictures already have a Sleepy Hollow look/ Sweeny Todd atmosphere

I mean seriously, it's just a given. She's fantastic in everything.

Re: Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland first pictures

Boy Burton hasnt pigeon holed himself into that Crazy sh!t. And Helen Bonham Carter. Shed be a poor baglady if it werent for Burton giving her a role in every single picture...Im tired of her. And Burton may have done a good job on this pic 10-15 years ago. But hes too far gone lately...

Re: Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland first pictures

I can't say I'm looking forward to this. It sounds and even looks like it's going to be what I call another "boring goth" flick. Lots of boredom, lots of goth backdrops, and altogether a complete bore to watch.

I'd have preferred something more American McGee rather than Sleepy Hollow. Which, to this day, I still haven't seen the entirity of due to falling asleep.

I'm sure she's fetched quite the pretty penny for her Fight Club, Harry Potter and Terminator work...

You do realize most of the story elements are drug references and dark things in general right?

Yep. But there's more than one way to protray it. Again: American McGee vs. Sleepy Hollow.

Took the words out of my mouth!

It's a bloody given that she'd be in this. I can already envision what this whole movie will look like already just by telling me it's a Burton film.
Is there a name for his goth/Victorian thin-limbed style?

"Jabberwocky" was the name of the poem. The beastie is actually called "The Jabberwock".

And technically, the poem appeared in the sequel story "Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There", but BOTH stories have been sort of "squished" together in most screen adaptations of the books, especially Disney's where only ELEMENTS of the stories bear any similarity to the Carroll books. The actual biting political satire and some of the more subtle references to "higher consciousness" from within unconsciousness are lost entirely in the versions made for children.

Re: Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland first pictures

I, for one, can't wait. I love Tim Burton and I think his take on Alice in Wonderland will be great.
