Exclusive: New Alice In Wonderland Pic
See the White Queen - with dormouse?

14 July 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  

submit to reddit

Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland is surely one of the best fits of director to subject matter ever, and a film that looks to be both weird and, of course, wonderful. So it's with delight and delirium that we bring you a new picture of Anne Hathaway's White Queen from the film, talking to a rodent who looks to our untrained eyes like the Dormouse.

The White Queen doesn't appear in the book Alice in Wonderland, appearing in the sequel Through The Looking Glass as a chess piece instead. While she's largely on Alice's side, she's not the most useful or reliable ally ever, and since she seems to live her life backwards (screaming before she's injured etc) she's a little odd, to say the least. Although whether anyone will notice in this company remains to be seen.


Here are further hi-res stills of Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham-Carter's barmy looking Red Queen, and Mia Wasikowska as Alice herself.


Alice In Wonderland is out on March 5, 2010 in the UK.

Getting excited
I love the Alice in Wonderland books and am really excited that Tim Burton is directing. I think only the likes of Tim &Terry Gilliam could get me excitd about another attaempt at making this film - the book is brilliantly weird. I really quite like it when directors cast the same actors in their movies especially when they fit his style so well and no one can deny Johnny and Helena do that. I'm interested to see what he does with Anne Hathaway; although i quite like her I can't quite More

Alice in Wonderland trailer......
The trailer of the movie Alice in Wonderland was much anticipated and rumors about it are circulating. But now it is finally here! The Alice in Wonderland trailer, for the take on the children's classic by director Tim Burton, is slated to open in 2010. It hasn't been announced when any additional trailers will be released, as this was just the teaser. Alice In Wonderland is a classic children's tale, although many adults adore it, written by mathematician and poet Lewis Carroll. (It's a pen More

RE: Looking forward
Oh wow, look at that. A heavily-styled Burton film. Huh. Does it have dialogue, or just Wasikowska and Co. wandering around heavily-styled sets in heavily-styled costumes wearing heavily-styled make-up? <sigh> More

Looking forward
I can't wait to see HBC and JD in this film. OK, so they are used a lot in Tim Burton's films, but Tim seems to like his muses. Lisa Marie was in lots of Tim's films while they were together and Anne Hathaway seems to be sporting a very familiar look to the one she had...he has a signature style for sure More

Alice looks a bit old? It might be good though, although it would be hard to tell with all the emo sheep flocking to every cinema when it comes out. More

SICK OF HBC & JD IN BURTON MOVIES!
This looks AMAZING. Tim Burton is my fave director EVER! And I love Alice in Wonderland - it's amazing, but I'm so sick and tired of Johnny Depp (although I adore him) being in ALL of Burtons new movies. I'm even MORE sick of seeing his wife now in every bloody movie! She's doing my head in trying to be all different now. She looks like she has a diformed head in that pic too, why have they given her that????? More

RE: Oh My Goodness!!
Halo14 Judging from your handle, i can only guess. That you are a teen without any concept of, what a good and exciting movie is. So I think, you should stick to the Game forums, and leave the rest to us grown ups ;) Now to why i am really here. I have been a fan of Tim Burton for many years, and I don´t think there has been any movies of his, that i have been looking more forward to. Its gonna be so cool :) More
