The first official stills from Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland movie have hit the web, and as one would expect from a Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland movie, they’re pretty trippy. Johnny Depp channels Kirsten Dunst Madonna as the Mad Hatter and Helena Bonham Carter sports a Nic Cage-like forehead expansion as the Red Queen. It also stars sexy giraffe Mia Wasikowska (Wasikowska?) as Alice, and Anne Hathaway as the White Queen.
I hope studio execs see this and realize that there’s 2,000+ years worth of literature to choose from and even though I hate most old crap, a 19th century classic is still way better than a videogame or a gd board game. My hope for this movie is that it’s like Sweeney Todd without all the gay singing. I also hope they change the it-was-all-just-a-dream ending because Lewis Carroll totally stole that from Dallas.
UPDATE: And here’s Anne Hathaway as the White Queen. What did they do to her? Dark lipliner, ghostly face, harsh eyebrows – looks more like the Chola Queen to me. Needs more power bangs. (Also, more art over at USA Today. Thanks, Robopanda)
