The stars of Alice In Wonderland graced the Royal World Premiere in London’s Odeon Leicester Square Thursday to celebrate the opening of the much-anticipated movie.
Director Tim Burton and his wife Helena Bonham Carter, who plays the Red Queen in the movie, posed for the photographers. Tim Burton previously threatened to ditch the premiere after Odeon cinema chain refused to screen Alice In Wonderland in the local market. Odeon finally agreed to show the film last minute.
Alice in Wonderland opens in the US and UK on March 5, 2010. Don’t forget your 3D glasses!
When Tim Burton and Johnny Depp are involved, you know it’s going to be phenomenal. Of all the blockbuster hits that 2010 promises to bring, it’s Alice in Wonderland that I cannot wait to see.
Lewis Carroll’s 19th century fairy tale has been told and retold so many times, but director Tim Burton promises to bring a more visually arresting version to the big screen.
Although Johnny’s twisted take on the Mad Hatter is expected to be entertaining as always, there’s another star that could steal the spotlight—Mia Wasikowska, who plays the lead role Alice. The film has yet to be shown in March, and already the 20-year-old Australian actress is making her rounds in Hollywood.
“I think I had a similar experience to Alice,” she told Daily Record. “I was definitely thrust into a world that was unlike my own. Making the film was very bizarre and odd, and it mimicked exactly what it was like for Alice to be in Wonderland.”
She’s been pegged as one of the faces to watch in 2010, and is reportedly working on two more movies with hotshot Hollywood directors. To want to be thrust into the public life of an A-List Hollywood celebrity, they say you have to be mad as a hatter.
