Walt Disney Pictures has released three new clips from Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.  The clips are called “Tea Party”, “Off With His Head”, and “Potion Making”.  This is on top of the clip they previously released called “Clothe This Girl”.  What’s cool about the clips is you get to see a lot of the characters and locations in Wonderland.  And while I’d love to say what I thought of the film, Disney has a strict embargo on this one, so all I can say is…watch all four clips after the jump.  Alice in Wonderland arrives in theaters March 5th.

The first images of Angelina Jolie on the set of The Tourist have already hit the net.  The movie literally starting filming yesterday in Paris, so that didn’t take long.  But when you put Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp in a movie together, you’re going to get a lot of paparazzi.  If you haven’t heard of the movie, The Tourist is about an American tourist (Depp) drawn into a web of intrigue and danger by a female Interpol agent (Jolie) as she attempts to locate a criminal who was once her lover.  At this past weekend’s press junket for Alice in Wonderland, Depp said he starts filming today in Venice.  Get ready for a lot more images from the set to leak.

A few hours ago I attended two press conferences for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland in Hollywood.  In attendance was almost the entire main cast, and in the coming days you can expect a lot of interviews.  But with Johnny Depp providing updates on Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Dark Shadows, and The Tourist, I wanted to get what he said about those projects online today.

The quick info is The Tourist starts shooting on Tuesday in Venice (the project he’s doing with Angelina Jolie, click here for more on the film), with Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom not in the 4th Pirates of the Caribbean movie, Depp says don’t expect it to be all Jack Sparrow.  And regarding his passion project Dark Shadows, Depp told me “I see it going this year.”

Every Wednesday, Walt Disney releases a new Alice in Wonderland featurette and today is no different.  With the amount of video featurettes and trailers that have been released, I’m at the point where I just want to see movie.  But I understand why Disney is doing this, as they’ve spent a lot of money bringing Alice back to life and they want a huge opening weekend.  Based on the buzz I’m hearing, I don’t think they have to worry.

Extended Mad Hatter Featurette for ALICE IN WONDERLAND

Walt Disney has released a new extended Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) featurette for Alice in Wonderland.  While the movie is about Alice and her adventures, based on all the trailers and commercials featuring Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, I think most people think the film is all about his character.  If he ends up being just a supporting player, moviegoers might be pretty angry….unless the film is awesome.

In a little over a week is the big Los Angeles press junket for Alice, so you can expect mini reviews to hit Twitter and Facebook after the junket screening.  While you wait for that…hit the jump to watch the new featurette.

Sure, we know how weird and wild the human characters look in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland (which is really an unofficial sequel to Lewis Caroll’s classic book), but have you seen the CG creations!  Well, you have if you’ve seen any of the trailers or commercials, but now they’re getting their own posters as MTV has debuted one-sheets for the Cheshire Cat (voiced by Stephen Fry) and the White Rabbit (voiced by Michael Sheen).

As for the human characters, the film stars Mia Wasikowska, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, and Johnny Depp.  Hit the jump to check out the posters along with the official synopsis.  Alice in Wonderland hits theaters in 3D and IMAX 3D on March 5th.

According to their website, FIVE33 is a creative communications agency known for its groundbreaking international campaigns.  On the site, they list Walt Disney’s A Christmas Carol and Alice in Wonderland as two campaigns they’ve worked on.   So it should come as no surprise that they’ve teamed up with Disney again for Tron Legacy and created a Light Cycle installation that will be traveling around the world to help promote the film.

If you were lucky enough to see the Tron Legacy Comic-Con viral event last summer, the display reminds me of that set-up – minus Flynn’s Arcade.  Hit the jump to check out what might be at your local mall in the coming months.  It’s extremely cool.

UPDATE - Sorry to say, the video is now gone from the internet. Sorry if you missed it but the installation will be on display soon

Walt Disney has announced a plan to cross promote Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland on all the networks the company owns (ABC, ESPN and ABC Family).  The plan is to show exclusive first look videos of the much anticipated film on January 31, and then unveil a huge Super-Bowl spot during the game on February 7.  According to Disney, the 60-second custom spots will feature never before seen footage of the film that arrives on March 5.

“We wanted to kick off our television campaign for ‘Alice in Wonderland’ in a big way,” says David Singh, executive vice president of worldwide marketing for Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.  “With Tim Burton at the helm and a cast that includes Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter and rising star Mia Wasikowska, the film already has a passionate following.  Fans are eager to step into the incredible 3D Wonderland that Burton has created and get a glimpse at what he’s done with these brilliant characters, and we’re ready to give it to them.”

Johnny Depp Talks About Playing the Mad Hatter in ALICE IN WONDERLAND

by     Posted 4 years, 284 days ago

slice_alice_in_wonderland_movie_image_johnny_depp_01.jpg

Although I was just thoroughly creeped out by Johnny Depp’s take on Willy Wonka (and in none of the best ways), I’m still convinced from the footage we’ve seen so far that this time he’ll make the perfect Mad Hatter for Tim Burton’s twisted vision of Alice in Wonderland.

In this short production video from Disney, you get glimpses of the Mad Hatter in action, with the best bit I think being that signature laugh that gets quickly silenced by Helena Bonham Carter’s Red Queen.

Hit the jump to hear Depp talk about what seems like his 50th collaboration with Tim Burton, and hopefully their best one yet when it comes out March 5.

Is Tim Burton Making Sleeping Beauty’s MALEFICENT His Next Project

by     Posted 4 years, 285 days ago

With Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland finally set to come out March 5 (that crazy Cheshire cat is already burned on my brain from the trailers alone), it seems he may already have his sights set on another Disney fairy tale – but, of course, from his own twisted viewpoint.

AICN is reporting he may – sort of – turn his attentions next to Sleeping Beauty, but instead of just putting his own dark touch on the original, he would transform it to be told from the viewpoint of Maleficent, the “mistress of all evil” who is the movie’s antagonist and would go on to appear in the Kingdom Hearts video game series and other Disney offerings. The movie would, in fact, be called Maleficent.

Personally, I think this sounds like great news, if it actually happens. When he coasts through by-the-numbers remakes like Planet of the Apes and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Burton seems as genuinely uninterested in making them as I was in watching them, but when he really bites into something classic and makes it his own, his movies can be a heck of a lot of fun. And it would certainly give Helena Bonham Carter something wild to play with.  Hit the jump to find out what else Tim Burton has on his plate, and of course let us know if you think Maleficent the movie would be a good idea or not.
