Alice in Wonderland Trailer

The new trailer for Tim Burton’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’  has been posted, can’t say I’m super excited about this one. Not sure how long it’ll last on youtube, but get it while its there!

Disney Previews ‘Alice,’ ‘Up,’ and ‘Toy Story 3’

Apparently the Disney shareholders meeting went well this week, with a look at Tim Burton’s upcoming ‘Alice in Wonderland.’ The film stars Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter (of course it does). The film will be a mix of CGI and live action, and stars Stephen Fry as the Cheshire Cat, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen (of course it does…), Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, and Mia Wasikowska as Alice.

Other movies previewed, a 3-D screening of ‘Up,’ and early footage of ‘Toy Story 3.’

MSN News in Latin America is reporting that Johnny Depp has been signed to play the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton’s adaptation of ‘Alice in Wonderland.’

The movie will be shot in 3D.  Australian actress Mia Wasikowska has alreay been signed to play Alice.

For me, I’ll sit through anything Johnny Depp does.  After his performances in ‘Ed Wood,’ ‘Fear and Loathing,’ and even the first ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ movie.  Depp has me.  I even liked ‘Once Upon a time in Mexico,’ in large part because of Depp’s performance.

Say what you will about Depp, this’ll be an interesting one…  -Sam
