Alice in 3D you say?

8 Aug

Set to debut March 5th 2010, the 7 year old sweet Alice we once knew as kids is no longer. Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” casts 19 year old Mia Wasikowska (from HBO’s ‘In Treatment’) to act as Alice in her teen years at 17. The plot follows that she is invited to a party only to find out, to her dismay, that she is about to be proposed to in front of a bunch of “snooty society types”. She runs off into the forests to begin the same adventure she has forgotten 10 years ago as a young girl. Check out the trailer!

Tim Burton, producer of Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, and The Nightmare Before Christmas among many other award winning films, has put his usual goth accent to the movie (of which I would usually pass). However, he promises that this will be a movie to see “for little people and people who read it when they were little 50 years ago”. I think I’m going to catch this one with my mini-me little sister – perks for her include the super 3D cinematic elements. For me, you ask? Definitely Johnny Depp in action as the Mad Hatter himself!
