Tim Burton returns to the cinemas this year with his latest feature Big Eyes starring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz. While we have come to enjoy many of Burton’s dark and fantastical worlds, the first trailer for Big Eyes may surprise you. Johnny Depp is no where to be seen, no swirling dark spirals or twisted trees, or even a whimsical Danny Elfman score, just the real world. Watch the trailer after the break. Continue reading
Frankenweenie releases in theaters this weekend, but while learning more about the premise, I began to see close similarities to Tim Burton’s other film, The Nightmare Before Christmas. The story may be told differently, but there are certain archetypes and plot elements that bear close resemblance to everyone’s favorite Christmas horror tale. Continue reading
Never big on seeing movie clips before the actual movie releases, I had to check out what the fuss has been about for Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie. Back in the day, I wouldn’t have given a second thought in seeing a Tim Burton flick, but nowone could doubt Mr. Burton’s creative abilities – especially after Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Alice in Wonderland, and Dark Shadows. Five clips have been released for Frakenweenie and although they erase some of my worries, I still reserve some precaution. Continue reading
MTV got an exclusive premier of two new character posters for Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland. These posters feature the Cheshire Cat (voiced by Stephen Fry) and the White Rabbit (voiced by Michael Sheen). Pretty cool looking if I do say so myself. Enjoy.
After premiering the first on Monday, Walt Disney Pictures has now released the second of three new theatrical banners for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Want to see more? Disney is asking fans to join The Disloyal Subjects of the Mad Hatter on Facebook (www.facebook.com/MadHatterSubjects) to “help prepare his army!” Apparently The Mad Hatter is giving his army the first look at exclusive images, but “you have to follow his orders to receive them.” Of course, these images already leaked and were posted on /Film over the weekend, found in a scan of an AMC Theaters promotional magazine. Check out a high resolution digital copy of the first two banners after the jump. (/FILM)

Official Plot Synopsis: From Walt Disney Pictures and visionary director Tim Burton comes an epic 3D fantasy adventure ALICE IN WONDERLAND, a magical and imaginative twist on some of the most beloved stories of all time. JOHNNY DEPP stars as the Mad Hatter and MIA WASIKOWSKA as 19-year-old Alice, who returns to the whimsical world she first encountered as a young girl, reuniting with her childhood friends: the White Rabbit, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Dormouse, the Caterpillar, the Cheshire Cat, and of course, the Mad Hatter. Alice embarks on a fantastical journey to find her true destiny and end the Red Queen’s reign of terror. The all-star cast also includes ANNE HATHAWAY, HELENA BONHAM CARTER and CRISPIN GLOVER. The screenplay is by Linda Woolverton. Capturing the wonder of Lewis Carroll’s beloved “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” (1865) and “Through the Looking-Glass” (1871) with stunning, avant-garde visuals and the most charismatic characters in literary history, ALICE IN WONDERLAND comes to the big screen in Disney Digital 3D™ on March 5, 2010.
It has come! Either you have to join the Mad Hatter’s Army on Facebook, just click on this link here, or check out the video below to view the new Alice In Wonderland Teaser Trailer in high definition. The cinematography looks great and the imagery is beautiful. What more could you ask for in a Burton film other than possibly less Depp? I find him a little overrated for roles like this these days, but lets hope he doesn’t play a vital role in the film; it is titled Alice In Wonderland, not Mad Hatter in Wonderland. Either way, we’ll see how it goes on March 5th, 2010.
The plot : “Written by Linda Woolverton, who also co-wrote The Lion King, and had a part in Beauty and the Beast, Mulan, and the Teen Wolf cartoon, the script isn’t exactly an adaptation of the original story by Lewis Carroll, as it is an extension of it. Alice went to Wonderland as a child, and she’s now almost grown. She’s 17, and she’s back for more, but doesn’t remember her times there earlier. She’s about to be engaged, maybe. A rich suitor wants to marry her, and the opening scenes of the movie are of her engagement party. But she, of course, gets distracted by a white rabbit.”
Check out the HD trailer stills after the jump:
I have seen the teaser and I know its going to get shut down soon before tomorrow so I took the liberty of taking some stills. It looks interesting, a lot more kiddy than I thought, but still looks good. It seems that the Mad Hatter is a intricate role in the movie and of course the story seems to revolve around Depps character, or maybe its just the trailer. The trailer shows all the main characters: Red Queen, Mad Hatter, White Rabbit, White Queen, Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dum, and the Cheshire Cat. This film comes out March 5th, 2010. The Official teaser trailer should be out tomorrow according to whoever wins the Facebook war.
(UPDATE: ALL VIDEOS OF THE TRAILER ARE DOWN THANKS TO DISNEY OR WHOEVER, You can say thanks for the trailer stills though because I knew they would all get taken down)
