Alice in Wonderland (2010)


Release Date 5 March 2010 (USA) Director Tim Burton Cast Mia Wasikowska (Alice Kingsley), Johnny Depp (The Mad Hatter), Helena Bonham Carter (The Red Queen), Anne Hathaway (The White Queen)
-----------------
"Downal wyth Bluddy Behg Hid."

Loosely translated, that's "Down with the Red Queen."


In Tim Burton's
Alice in Wonderland, a ragtag group of misfits revolts against The Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) who — since overthrowing The White Queen (Anne Hathaway) — has been ruling with an iron fist.

Alice returns to Wonderland 10 years after her first visit, reuniting with familiar faces.

"Alice, you're terribly late," the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) coos. "Naughty."

CGI and motion capture technology helped Tim Burton recreate Wonderland's curious environs. Twenty-year-old Australian actress Mia Wasikowska (Alice) found herself hobnobbing with characters both tangible (The Knave of Hearts played by actor Crispin Glover) and virtual (the March Hare, entirely computer generated).

As for the Mad Hatter and The Red Queen — two of the more memorable characters in
Alice in Wonderland — Burton turns on the sympathy button, showing us the very things that make them human. The strange hue of the Mad Hatter's hair and eyes is attributed to mercury poisoning while The Red Queen's temper is said to be caused by a tumor growing in her head.

With Burton's penchance for wit and flair and the film's superb cast of supporting actors (Michael Sheen as the White Rabbit; Alan Rickman as Absolem, the Caterpillar; Christopher Lee as the Jabberwocky), Alice in Wonderland may just be this year's most promising movie.

I wish someone would also invest on an adaptaion of the Looking Glass Wars, which is a different approach to the story of Alice. Anne Hathaway looks so pretty here, but in usual Tim Burton fashion, she looks demented as well.

Andy said...

ShatterShards: I can't wait to see Anne Hathaway's interpretation of The White Queen. She describes her as "Cute but psycho," drawing inspiration from Blondie, Greta Garbo, and the artwork of Dan Flavin in portraying her role. The White Queen also doesn't walk, but "floats," which makes for a rather interesting sight. :)

can't wait! looks promising. :D

Lawstude said...

the photo enchanted me. that's a good sign.

Raft3r said...

tim burton ROCKS!!!

Josh said...

Why are Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter in every Tim Burton movie? Not that I'm complaining... they're good.

Andy said...

citybuoy: It does, although Johnny Depp looks like a clown with his inch-thick makeup, heheh

Lawstude: Based on movie stills, it looks like Alice in Wonderland will be a visual knockout.

Andy said...

Raft3r: Most definitely! Burton's crazy-cool, and I mean that in a good way, heheh

Josh: Romantic consorts of Burton occasionally appear in his films. Lisa Marie appeared in a couple of his movies including Ed Wood and Mars Attacks. Bonham Carter, on the other hand, appeared in five.

Bonham Carter and Burton have a close relationship with Depp, who is one of their children's godfather. I think Depp is one of Burton's favorite actors.

I'm such a geek, heheh

Josh said...

Huh. I didn't even know that Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter are together. How long before he puts their children in his movies?

Andy said...

Josh: Who knows, maybe they already did a cameo or something....

I wouldn't be surprised, though, if Depp somehow ends up in his next movie, hahah

Manech said...

Same with Nyl. I absolutely can't wait for this to come out.

And I hope, for once, Tim Burton makes a film wherein my Honey Johnny doesn't get covered in make-up. Hay, wishful thinking.

Andy said...

Manech: I have bad news; brace yourself. They covered your Honey Johnny in hideous makeup again, heheh.

The Scud said...

IMAX na yan.3D!

Andy said...

The Scud: I haven't tried watching a movie in IMAX. Puro kasi bootleg pinapanood ko, heheh

Victor Gregor said...

Marla Singer, we missed you! :D

Andy said...

Victor Gregor: Ohmygod :D

Marla is definitely the best! She's like Lorena Bobbit on speed. I love her. :D

jayclops said...

im actually looking forward to this one. i liked sweeney todd a lot.

Andy said...

jayclops: I'm looking forward to seeing Alice too. I love Michael Sheen in Frost/Nixon; I wonder how he'd interpret the White Rabbit, haha

I haven't seen Sweeney Todd, though. I have to find a copy first, heheh

Manech said...

Belated Happy Valentines, Andy. :)

And yes, of course. I saw the trailer.

Good thing I wake up every morning to his unmake-up-ed (what a term) face. :)

Andy said...

Manech: Yeah, Mr. Depp looks good au naturel without makeup, heheh. Vanessa Paradis is one lucky woman. :))

Belated happy Valentines to you too!
