Newly released images of an upcoming Tim Burton production (due out in 2010) of â€œAlice in Wonderlandâ€ offer an alluring peek through the looking glass. Pulling in such exciting and diverse talents as Johnny Depp (seemingly one of Burtonâ€™s favorites for his ability to carry through extreme personas), Helena Bonham Carter, and Anne Hathaway. The stunning images show these classic characters recreated as envisioned by Tim Burtonâ€¦ though such lively and dramatic visual interpretations of characters is nothing new for the director/producer, as exhibited in some of his past works like Edward Scissorhands, Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, Sleepy Hollow, Big Fish, Beetlejuice, and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Extreme colors and rich details in costume and makeup portrayed in the composition of the images prove that this Wonderland could be more realisticâ€¦ and in that, could this possibly be more nightmarish, than the illustrations or animations before it?
â€œAlice in Wonderlandâ€ has always been a bizarre story in a bizarre world on itâ€™s own, and coming from the head of Tim Burton, itâ€™s difficult to know anymore what exactly to expect. All I can say is any Tim Burton fan would be almost maniacally eager at this point about the film.
