First glimpse of Tim Burton’s Alice

Posted by: admin In: Guardian

Tim Burton’s forthcoming Alice in Wonderland looks highly promising: Lewis Carroll’s alternative universe was already populated by oddballs, but photographs released this week hint that Burton will ramp up the weird factor significantly. Meanwhile, an early trailer, screened to journalists in London, shows a 17-year-old Alice (played by Australian newcomer Mia Wasikowska) returning to ­Wonderland a decade after her earlier adventures – and this time it’s a lurid, nightmarish ­counterpart to Carroll’s original.

Starring seven-time Burton collaborator Johnny Depp as the Hatter, the film mixes live action and CGI, borrowing storylines and characters from both Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. ­Burton’s partner, Helena Bonham Carter, plays the evil Red Queen (pictured), while Anne Hathaway plays the lovely White Queen. Alan ­Rickman (the Caterpillar), Matt Lucas (Tweedledum and Tweedledee), Stephen Fry (the Cheshire Cat), and Christopher Lee (the Jabberwock) also take part.

Burton has even signed up ­Barbara Windsor to play the ­Dormouse. The film is due for ­release in March 2010, and will screen in 3D.
