New Images and Whimsy from Tim Burton's Alice
11.11.09 by REELZ
Lots of new glimpses of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland have been leaking out over the last few days. Over the weekend, some scans of a magazine spread with images from the movie popped up, including a first peek at the Caterpillar, who will be played Alan Rickman, perched atop a giant mushroom with hookah in hand.
The spread was followed up this week by a staggered release of new posters for the movie via the Facebook page for The Disloyal Subjects of the Mad Hatter. All have been nicely teased by the Hatter, who is demanding increasing thousands of "likes" for each new peek.
First up is a gorgeous character composite dominated by the imperious Red Queen. After a bit of a delay and 7000 "likes" later, the Hatter deigned to let out a second poster featuring Alice and the White Rabbit amid a psychedelic landscape of tea party, flowers with human faces, and a mysterious door to nowhere. Ever more demanding, the Hatter has now ordered his following to offer up 9000 more "likes" before he releases the final poster. It took a while to fill the last mad order, so if you are anxious to see the final poster in this series, you had better head on over to Facebook and give him what he wants.
