T-minus one week until Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland
” opens in theaters, and several new clips are making their rounds on the interwebs today. And I gotta admit that while I was once psyched about the 3D IMax trip-fest, the clips just seem a little … snoozy. Above, see the White Queen (otherwise known as Anne Hathaway
) make Alice a magic potion and, after the jump, see Alice meet the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) for the first time. What do you think? Will you be lined up to see this flick opening night, or will you be boycotting and clinging to your DVD of the animated 1951 version? Keep reading »
Everything Tim Burton touches turns to genius. So we’re pretty excited that his next project looks like it will be the story of “Sleeping Beauty,” from the perspective of Disney’s most villainous villainess, Maleficent. The movie will hopefully fill in all those question marks we had with the original movie. Like jeez, why so pissed off, lady? Or how do you get those crazy arches on your eyebrows? And, as the most sinister Disney villain, why didn’t you think of just killing the prince? [AintItCool] Keep reading »
“Edward Scissorhands” director Tim Burton inspires (and makes a cameo in) the October issue of Harper’s Bazaar in an over-the-top-goth layout shot by fashion photographer Tim Walker. It’s a spooky, ragtag romp through a land populated by Burton-esque giant skeletons, rabbit girls in heels without heels, and flaming-haired sirens wooing the undead. More bizarre images after the jump. Keep reading »
If you haven’t been to a museum in a while, we have one very good reason why, come fall, you should. From November to April 2010, never-before-seen art by Tim Burton will be on display at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. The exhibit will feature 700 works, including 14 films, as well as puppets, doodles, costumes, cartoons, childhood drawings, and sculptures from the ultimate pop-culture surrealist. We expect it’ll be surreal, surprising, and awesome. Be there or be watching the trailer for his version of “Alice in Wonderland.” [NY Times] Keep reading »
Tim Burton is one of my favorite directors. I know “The Nightmare Before Christmas” by heart and left the theater with goosebumps after seeing his twisted remake of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” Not to mention that I admire his constantly casting Johnny Depp! Which is why I could not contain my excitement upon seeing the new promotional photos for Burton’s upcoming rendition of “Alice in Wonderland.” It’s just like Burton to take a children’s fairytale and warp it, and by the looks of these pictures, we’re in for one dark fall down the rabbit hole. In this creepily surrealist version, Alice lands back in Wonderland 10 years after her first visit, but she has absolutely no recollection of being there the first time around. Oh, and did I mention that this movie will be shown in 3-D and that you can explore the CGI scenery thanks to this cool USA Today gadget?
Sadly, the movie won’t be out until March 5 of 2010. So to tide you over, here are our favorite of the publicity images. Keep reading »
