Like me, you probably had no idea what to expect from Tim Burton's upcoming Alice in Wonderland adaptation, especially considering the fact that it's part live action, part motion-capture and all in 3D. Well USA Today has revealed the first look at some of the motion-captured characters, as well as a few pieces of larger-than-life concept art, and based on all of this it would appear as if we're in for one helluva trip back down the rabbit hole.
The images you're probably most interested in are the character photos (see above) of the Mad Hatter (played by Johnny Depp), the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) and the White Queen (Anne Hathaway). I think the images look great, and Depp's Mad Hatter (which will not be live action, but motion-captured) reminds me of a deranged Pippi Longstocking mixed with a little Carrot Top -- with that giant red-orange afro protruding from the classic Mad Hatter hat. I love it!
Check out all the images over at USA Today and let us know what you think. Will Burton score a home run with his version of Alice in Wonderland?
Alice in Wonderland, Tim Burton
Tim Burton is going to ruin Alice and Wonderland
Yikes!!!!! and coooooollll at the same time!!!!! BRING IT ON!!!!!!!
The costumes and makeup look awesome!! I cannot wait!
Tim Burton gotta be careful with how he makes Alice in Wonderland. There are still a lot of people that remember American McGee's Alice.
They need to stop remaking every freakin thing! Isn't there one person in the industry that has any creativity left?
I CANNOT WAIT UNTILLLL MARCH 5TH!!!
I want to watch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ummm.............and Alice will be played by...?
Hathaway looks marvelous! And Depp is a good choice for the Mad Hatter but not looking like a birthday party clown!!!
I agree that all Burton flix look alike - all Suessical and stripes.
I'll go see it, but not expecting to particularly like it.
Movie looks good, but my comment is about who Depp looks like in this get up. Seriously, look at it and don't you see Madonna???
This looks CRAZY... In a BRILLIANT way.... Tim and Johnny are GREAT together.... Can't wait to go and see it.
I agree. Only Depp can pull off stuff like this. Bonham Carter can do this too.... she can be deliciously wicked. I think Hathaway has the depth as well... but all will remain to be seen. Regardless, I can't wait! Tim Burton is a genius!
That freakin shot of Depp looks craaaaazy. I'm interested to see how all of the different footage mixes up, but now that I've seen what Depp looks like, can't wait to hear what kind of bizzarro accent he'll add to the character.
Looks brilliant, as only Tim Burton could do.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
