While I’m sure some of you have seen them but I can’t resist posting the newly released images of Tim Burton’s re-imagining of Alice in Wonderland for those who have not. Twitter was all a-buzz yesterday as the ‘first look’ images were released in USA Today.
Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, will revisit the heroine in her late teens as she is reluctantly about to be proposed to. She flees the scene and follows the white rabbit into Wonderland where her help is needed. Alice doesn’t remember her previous trip down the rabbit hole but they remember her. That’s as far as I’m going with a synopsis. I read a bit more and then stopped myself as I prefer to just see the film on opening day and not expect anything. You can certainly get more little tidbits online such as descriptions of the characters and a little more info on the plot. It’s all just a google away.
Anyway, without further adieu…photos!

This is my favorite image. It’s just so Burton-esque.

and Alice herself…in tiny form
I’m totally looking forward to the release – March 2010. In the meantime, you can get an entirely different and probably even trippier version of Alice by renting ‘Alice’ by the incredibly talented and bizarre filmmaker Jan Svankmajer who is known for mixing stop motion into real time which produces uncanny results. Here’s the opening of Svankmejer’s Alice on YouTube.
This week’s comic is loosely related to foolishness but mostly was an excuse for GingerDead’s brain to fly into the sky and be eaten by birds. As always, your haiku comments are a delight so don’t be afraid to not only write them but post them here. Let the comic art or Alice inspire you…
