STALKING: ‘Alice in Wonderland’ Yes, again.

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009

WTF!? I jump through hoops signing up for The Mad Hatter’s crew on Facebook and EW has this up on their website? Whatevs. Here’s the teaser trailer for Alice.

Thoughts? Okay. First of all, somebody please hire someone else to do the real trailer. It’s like they recycled the music and editing from a half-million other trailers I could think of. This is ALICE we’re talking about. And second, I’m a disappointed in some things. Tim, you’re killin’ me here. The Cheshire Cat – unimpressive. Looks like a normal cat. Boo. The White Rabbit? In crappy CG? Please tell me he’s a placeholder.

Somebody back me up here!

STALKING Tim Burton: Alice in Wonderland

Newcomer Mia Wasikowska as Alice in classically Burtonesque scenery {{drool}}

Every now and then, a man so fabulously genius comes along that I simply can’t help but track his every move. One of these men is Tim Burton. His style is something over which to fawn (Disney meets The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari – who knew it would be so spooky fantastic?), he hasn’t slowed down since Beetle Juice, he’s one of the grand-daddies of claymation AND he brings Johnny Depp hotness to the screen over and over again.

At the prospect of Alice in Wonderland Burton-style, I’m drooling a little more than usual. And, as dear Timmy is stalk-worthy in my book, I don’t see any way Wonderland could disappoint. Stay tuned for my official ratings when we Foreplay Alice in Wonderland. In the meantime, check these tantalizing visuals, courtesy comingsoon.net:

JD as the Mad Hatter

Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter – looking a little too much like Elijah Wood – but I’m loving the freaky Victorian getup

Alice_Tweedles

Matt Lucas (I’ll plug his hilarious new show ‘Krod Mandoon‘ here) as The Tweedle Twins

Picture 4

Anne Hathaway as the White Queen – actually present in the sequel to ‘Alice in Wonderland’, ‘Through the Looking-Glass’, not sure how Burton will explain this one
