Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland

In staying with the fantastical and slightly aberrant, I had to repost notice for the 2010 remake of Alice In Wonderland by the ever extraordinary Tim Burton. Ok, yes, it's put out by Disney (again), but there appears no shortage of everything, well, Burton. As Seattle Times writer Moira Macdonald points out, "Tim Burton movies always look like Tim Burton movies, they're always gorgeous in that special, vaguely dangerous Edward-Gorey-in-color-and-on-steroids way".

This is certainly no exception. We are met with familiar co-star favorites Johnny Depp (The Mad Hatter, who else?) and Burton's partner, Helena Bonham Carter (the Red Queen), alongside a surprise Anne Hathaway (the White Queen), and newcomer Mia Wasikowska (Alice). These iconic characters take a twist in a future reality of Wonderland, replete with all the outré psychedelic trappings and trimmings. March 5th, baby. I cannot wait. [View a second trailer here]
