Tim Burton's Trippy New Alice in Wonderland

We've seen glimpse of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland previously, but USA Today now has our official first look. And it's definitely not what we were expecting to see, that's for sure! Not only do they have three new gorgeous new concept art photos, but they reveal our first looks at Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as The Red Queen, and Anne Hathaway as The White Queen. "It has been Burton-ized" is how producer Richard Zanuck describes the director's vision of the Lewis Carroll classic. After shooting for only 40 days, they're working on adding CG animation and motion-capture creatures.

Below you'll see the first three promo banners - one for the Mad Hatter, one for the evil Red Queen, and one for the White Queen. These will be up in movie theaters starting later this week. Click to see them bigger.

A scene where Alice, played by Mia Wasikowska, greets talking rose blossoms at the entrance to what seems to be a forest of giant mushrooms. "But as in the book, her size shrinks and grows throughout her journey."

Alice in Wonderland Concept Art

"The rabbit is convinced he has the right Alice," Zanuck says about the scene below. "He has been looking for her for years." Michael Sheen plays the White Rabbit - you can see a full-size version by click the photo.

Alice in Wonderland Concept Art

Interestingly, this is somewhat of a sequel to Disney's animated movie from 1951. "Alice, 17, attends a party at a Victorian estate only to find she is about to be proposed to in front of hundreds of snooty society types. Off she runs, following a white rabbit into a hole and ending up in Wonderland, a place she visited 10 years before yet doesn't remember." As for Wasikowska, who plays Alice, Burton says "she just had that certain kind of emotional toughness, standing her ground in a way that makes her kind of an older person with a younger person's mentality." Zanuck also adds: "There is something real, honest and sincere about her."

Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland is scheduled to hit theaters on March 5th, 2010 in both Disney Digital 3D as well as regular 2D. You can see more photos and find out more about Burton's movie at USA Today.

If Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter were a million times less creepy this would be cool.

@4 I thought the same thing as soon as I seen the picture. lol

Moe on Jun 21, 2009

13

actually... it doesn't look too good, even for Burton I hoped for a fresh approach, but instead I got more of the same

Bender on Jun 21, 2009

Depp looks like a mix of elija wood and madonna. And Tim, you are trying too hard.

Mario on Jun 21, 2009

looks very unique... looking fwd to it!

Andy on Jun 21, 2009

16

If I didn't know from beforehand that Depp was playing the Hatter, I would've assumed Eiljah Wood too. Weird.

Alfredo on Jun 21, 2009

Looks really amazing.. only a bit too creepy.

evanna on Jun 21, 2009

you can't even tell that it's Johnny Depp under all that make up, i keep thinking it looks like Elijah Wood.

mike on Jun 21, 2009

23

Shouldn't this be Return to Wonderland?

Daniel on Jun 21, 2009

24

Yea...I love Alice. But I'm still on the fence with this. Probably going to see it in 2D. We'll see about 3D.

crAziemutant on Jun 21, 2009

This looks great. This story is a perfect fit for Tim Burton.

Awesome! I was waiting for an adaptation for American McGee's "Alice" for years. Looks like this will do nicely!

Wesley on Jun 22, 2009

agree with the first comment by Tyler... looks like Fear and Loathing meets Willy Wonka... Curious Very Curious

I guess it's hard not to make Anne Hathaway hot.

I have anxiety on Jun 22, 2009

Tim Button's wife and his boyfriend look really creepy in those makeup.

AprilCoolsDay on Jun 22, 2009

the cartoon sucked big time. hallmark version will remain the best version.

In Tim Burton we trust!

Tim "Cloverfield" on Jun 22, 2009

38

Wow!!!!!!!!!! Looks beautiful.... Damn Beautiful!!!!! Looking foward to this...

Men of Honor on Jun 22, 2009

39

This looks like horse$%!@... Why would anyone say in Tim Burton we trust? Because of Wonka? Sweeny Toad? Planet of the Grapes? Come on, the guy lost his edge 15 years ago. This movie will blow.

Cinemassiv on Jun 22, 2009

I cannot wait! Give us a trailer!

PANASONNIC FANATIC on Jun 22, 2009

43

What 39 said Burtons been done for a while if ya ask me....unless this is a sorta comback cause burton has churned out some real shit the last few times.

Cody on Jun 22, 2009

44

I personally think this looks absolutely amazing. i am glad it has this creepier edge to it and i like the ideas for the plot. sounds really cool. and i don't really understand why some of you have to hate on Tim Burton. he's just himself and leave him alone. 😀

Mary on Jun 22, 2009

45

Burton should do Wizard Of Oz next. I just watched Batman Returns for the first time in years, and btw it is very underrated, IMO.

Scott on Jun 22, 2009

46

The Hatters off centered eye looks amazing... but i honestly cant tell if that's Johnny or Elijah. its bugging the hell out of me other photos look great to

DoomCanoe on Jun 22, 2009

47

How is this not what we expected? Looks exactly as I thought it word. Nothing surprising but still looks promising.

w00t!!! on Jun 22, 2009

48

totally trippy!

xerxex on Jun 22, 2009

49

Seriously Depp looks more like Wonka in this photo compared to the entire chocolate factory movie which i still think was disapointing.

Travolta on Jun 22, 2009

50

Looks interesting, and creepy as always from Burton.

Marty on Jun 22, 2009

51

I can't wait for this! The anticipation is erupting inside! Great idea Burton. And yes to Johnny Depp!!!

Nicole on Jun 22, 2009

52

I like that it's a sequel.

DCompose on Jun 22, 2009

53

Why must Tim Burton recycle every character in every movie he does? This looks retarded.

Chris on Jun 22, 2009

54

SWEEEEEEEET! bring on 2010!

Nick S. on Jun 22, 2009

55

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lewis_Carroll creepy or no...sounds kind of like a literary Henry Darger if you ask me.

kristy on Jun 22, 2009

56

Aw HELL no. This movie has acid trip nightmare written all over it. I don't care how good or artistic it is.

Icarus on Jun 22, 2009

57

Number 7, good call w/ the Killington! "cause he's a Scot! hehe" awesome wicked pics. this I will see for sure on opening day. love Burton and Depp. although, Depp does kinda creep me out here.

Conrad on Jun 22, 2009

58

Wow... talk about a good reason to take acid... and it's in 3-D. MY POPCORN IS TRYING TO EAT ME!!!

capo689 on Jun 22, 2009

59

Tim Burton's movies are always kinda weird. Beautiful visually, but still weird. Plus, he makes every story turn out kinda creepy. Like, Willy Wonka...>.> Alice in Wonderland was a trippy story to begin with, but man...Johnny Depp will give me nightmares in this one, lol. >.< That's what happens when grown men with a goth kid mentality get handed a bunch of money and a camera. 😉

depp looks like elijah wood with that make-up

pogi on Jun 22, 2009

62

I'm just so sick of Depp and these "whimsical" roles. Enough already. It's starting to get old.

ron mexico on Jun 22, 2009

63

OMG! i cant wait!!!!!!!!!!!!! i loved alice and wonderland since i was a kid and mm still obessed with it today! ive loves Tim Burton since i watched NBC and frankenweenie...i love his work, short stories and directing <3 im soooooooooooooooooooo excited! i cant wait, i'm writing it on my calender as we speak!

mistressstacey on Jun 22, 2009

64

IT LOOKS AWESOME! From the pictures it sort of reminds me of the Alice computer game - maybe the movie is less freaky then that. The graphics are gonna be great, I like the idea of having faces on the flowers.

Lil on Jun 22, 2009

65

Hahaha "Fear and Loathing in the Chocolate Factory"

Jaynich on Jun 22, 2009

66

woooooooooooow Very nice!!! I love it =)

Paul on Jun 22, 2009

67

This looks like its going to end up looking like an over art directed skittles commercial...

javi on Jun 22, 2009

68

I don't get why Tim Burton is so hated. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory wasn't that bad and the only horrible movie he did was Planet of the Apes (some will say Mars Attack, but it was like Scary Movie 1 and 2, so bad its good). But, yeah, looks really good and I cannot wait for it to come out.

MizPiz on Jun 22, 2009

69

I agree with #68...Planet of the Apes is the only truly bad Burton movie. Sweeney Todd was pretty awesome...as a fan of the original Broadway show, I was upset with some of the changes but have now seen the movie a good 4 times and it's become one of my favorites. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was also pretty darn good...don't compare it to the original, just enjoy it for what it is.

Kevin on Jun 22, 2009

OMG A GIRAFFE!!!! I FREAKIN LOVE THOSE! I SPY A FLAMINGO AND OCTOPUS TOO!!! DO YOU SEE THEM?

jeanene funthing on Jun 22, 2009

71

T.T i thought tim burton will be making the return to wonderland version of alice.. but oh well atleast this one will be pretty interesting...

rage on Jun 22, 2009

72

This looks fantastic. I can't wait!

parker on Jun 22, 2009

73

Am I the only one that thinks the Mad Hatter looks kinda like BeetleJuice?

Eas on Jun 22, 2009

74

Looks pretty . I love it .

led panel on Jun 23, 2009

75

Nice. Although....Johnny Depp ended up looks like a crazy Elijah Wood

angryKid on Jun 23, 2009

76

O.M.F.G.!! TIM BURTON IS LIKE A FINE ART, ARTIST, WHO PAINTS ONTO FILM.....IT IS UNBELIEVABLE THE SH#T HE CAN DO, HE CAN TURN PEOPLE INTO TO, IT'S THE FINEST ART POSSIBLE! AND ITS RELIEVING TO SEE SOMEONE WHO STILL DOESNT CARE WHAT IS "EXCEPTABLE" IN THE INDUSTRY AND STILL JUST DOES THEIR OWN THING.

SACHA THRALL on Jun 23, 2009

77

What makes Burton stand out is his detail in art direction. It is simply burtonesque and it's hard to say that it's better or worse than anything else. I like that he mixes cg with real props and characters, But I wish he could lay of the cg a little and make it more authentic with style, like spike lee is doing with most of Where the Wild things are.

Mark on Jun 23, 2009

78

Everything looks beautiful except Johnny Depp. Oh, the irony.

D on Jun 23, 2009

79

I like taking old things and giving them a twist. if you dont like it, dont watch it. I think the makeup and costumes look great. i think this movie will be something everyone should see for that reason alone.

tessa on Jun 24, 2009

80

I LOVE the original animated alice in wonderland and this one looks JUST as good I think thier trying to put in the factor of parents and children will like this i mean most have grew up watching the movie anyway what makes this one different? the only thing is i am iffy about johhny depp i hated him in charlie and the chocolate factory. WORST REMAKE EVER!!!

kgs on Jun 24, 2009

81

Johnny Depp's hatter looks like he's had more than his share of cocaine. Helena Bonham Carter's queen looks stoned. Anne Hathaway's queen thogh makes Anne Hathaway herself more sexy. Iron Man 2 may top them though with Scarlet Johansson donning a black PVC outfit as The Black Widow. Wonderland's still has a long way to go to surpass the land train hijacking scene in Fast and Furious.

Beavis on Jun 24, 2009

82

Perfect. This is gonna be great. And it's freaking DISNEY - Oh please please please please please please please let there be a whole buttload of merchandise at the theme park as I am hoping to be there in April not long after this opens... oh man oh man oh man. God knows they blew up Enchanted when I was there the last time... it was EVERYWHERE. Depp - awesome Helena - Love her Hathaway - good call RICKMAN - oh yeah Stephen Fry - loved him in V4V I am over the top incredibly excited about this! Maybe even more so than the next Potter film - and I am salivating for that one... Ok. enough babbling... continue with your conversations.

Leisa on Jun 24, 2009

83

Too many young animators are citing Tim Burton as an influence, and failing to produce truly dark, original work of their own. What do you think? http://www.4mations.tv/2009/06/films-not-to-make-part-one/

4mations on Jun 25, 2009

84

Should have seen this coming. But it does look beautiful. I hope it's not as dissapointing as sweeny todd. And I agree. Wizard of oz should be next.

jessica on Jun 27, 2009

85

um NO wizard of oz should NOT be next. What are u thinking???? its a TIMELESS classic that should NOT be touched

kennedy on Jun 27, 2009

86

Suposing Tim Burton turns more to science fiction genre and made another Star Wars Trilogy set after Episode 6, in which the Jedi are undergoing a new renaisaince due to Luke Skywalker having kids.

Beavis on Jun 28, 2009

87

I agree that he should leave certain things be. I have been a fan, and really enjoy his original works, I am tired of his remakes, and frankly of seeing Johnny Depp in nearly everything he does (what is this 3 in a row now, or am I missing some?). This saddens me as I have been a Depp fan, but am getting a bit sick of him now. It was better when he popped up every now and then, not multiple times per year. And, frankly that Mad Hatter looks annoying, but not in a good Mad Hatter way. If you wanna make something, why not stay true to the book- this Mad Hatter, and Alice definitely do not. Sad. The reason it is popular in the first place was that Lewis Carroll got it right- why fudge that up?

lespacino on Jun 29, 2009

88

@15 how does this look unique at all? its the same old shit

arkyvarky on Jun 29, 2009

words can not describe how excited i am about this movie.

nicole on Jul 1, 2009

90

im so excited this moving is coming out! im most excited that johnny depp is playing the mad hatter, but seriously the cheshire cat is not a male! get it right!

kat on Jul 3, 2009

91

If it's Tim Burton it's gonna be fucked up, and I love it that way, I'm excited as hell!

Marley on Jul 4, 2009

92

hey is very impresionant tim is a fabolous amimator and director

daniela on Jul 5, 2009

93

ok...number 85! im letting you know now that The Wizard of Oz IS in fact being remade. They are screwing it up badly...but it is still being remade. It is all going to be CGI...no real people or anything real about it at ALL! Also, there are no musical numbers in it WHATSOEVER!! Here is the information: Oz Release Date: TBA Studio: Warner Bros. Pictures Director: Not Available Screenwriter: Josh Olson Starring: Not Available Genre: Adventure, Fantasy MPAA Rating: Not Available Official Website: Not Available Review: Not Available DVD Review: Not Available DVD: Not Available Movie Poster: Not Available Production Stills: Not Available Plot Summary: A revisionist take on the L. Frank Baum books that hatched "The Wizard of Oz." McFarlane said. "I want to create (an interpretation) that has a 2007 wow factor. You've still got Dorothy trapped in an odd place, but she's much closer to the Ripley from 'Alien' than a helpless singing girl." Olson was keeping plot specifics to himself but said the film will be closer to a sequel than a remake. Trailer: Coming soon!

hey you! on Jul 5, 2009

98

If this don't overtake that atrocious crap called Titanic that will be a travesty

Jezza on Jul 7, 2009

99

I'm making some predictions here. Mia Wasikowska has defenitly got a chance of winning an MTV award for Best Breakthrough Performance-Female for her Alice. The male equivilant is likely to be going to one of the boys from The Hangover, Ed Helms as Stu, the one who "lost a tooth" and "married a whore", being the likeliest out of them. Helena Bonham Carter could get a nomination for Best Villain for her Red Queen. Johnny Depp could be nominated for Best Actor for his hatter, but will probably lose to Sacha Baron Cohen as Bruno.

Hamster on Jul 9, 2009

I think that the next movie that Tim Burnton should produce is a book called THE DEVOURING. Some may know it if you like to read twisted, and dark, and creepy-beyond-belief books. It would be like putting Tim Burnton in a candy store.

junebug on Jul 9, 2009

101

yeah, i read the devouring and it was an awesome book!

bored out of my mind on Jul 10, 2009

102

Okay. 1. Johnny Depp is the greatest actor alive. 2. Tim Burton is the greatest Director. 3.Alice in Wonderland is the best Disney movie! THIS IS GOING TO BE THE BEST MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE! :] I am super pumped. i cannot wait till March 5th OH MAN! 😀 -Leslie Ann

108

i love how so many people are into it and how so many people aren't. it will be interesting to see the turnout for this movie, i personally love everything tim burton, johnny depp, and helena bonham carter. and anne hathaway is simply gorgeous =] muy bien.

Eliana on Jul 21, 2009

109

Looks like something out of Lord of the Rings. The Red Queen is essentially Sauron Alice is a mix of Frodo and Aragorn Tweedle twins are basically Merry and Pippin Chesiere Cat is basically Gollum The Mad Hatter is King Theoden/Saruman

Captain Slow on Jul 22, 2009

110

I think that the mad hatter's a bit over the edge, I think that depp is better suited for dark works (hence his near attachment to the famous dark director), and I do believe that as more information is presented, we can see how this movie and plot-line will develop. I think more information is needed. Don't judge it just yet. BTW, I thought sweeney was an awesome movie, with depp singing, played perfectly to both the director's and actor's strengths. Charlie and the chocolate factory had to be darker or weirder or something, because if they had made it nice, they wouldn't have enough room to even call it a remake. It could essentially be the same plot and events and characters as the first. It had to be weird. This same rule applies to alice. It's a new outlook on a classic story. Take Wicked. This is a classic prequel of Wizard of Oz, completely changing the perspective of the original. It was a prequel, but it showed other sides of the characters and redeveloped both shows. As a fore-note, I would like to bring you back to edward scissor hands. Classic burton with a quiet, dark depp. This is what they do best. Remakes can be good, but they have to change the perspective and feel of the story. Otherwise, they're not remakes, they're just make-makes.

hfvlajsdhfv on Jul 22, 2009

111

Mad Hatter looks like Maddona on crack!

Mono on Jul 23, 2009

112

Personally I like the first version better I mean I like the Nightmare Before Christmas but this has gone to far. The Mad Hatter Looks Creepy and so Does the Red Queen, but I like the Idea of putting Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter. I Love Disney Movies but until I see More Info I'm Not going to see it.

Ta-Ta on Jul 25, 2009

113

And Plus why does he have to have a Red Queen and a White Queen, just stick to the original Movie.

Ta-Ta on Jul 25, 2009

maddie on Dec 10, 2009

124

Should I be tripping on acid when I see this movie?

Daniel on Dec 16, 2009

125

No acid necessary, it's provided through the film, especially if you can handle the 3-d version, not sure I can the first time. I agree the creepy makes it even better, and I believe the book is actually about an acid, or heroin trip. This is the sort of film that could cause someone on a bad, or even a fringe trip, to tumble over the edge...where many never return from. Nothing is worth that risk imo. Can't wait for the tea party I thought was being released today (Christmas Day), but alas the March Hare rules! Or was that the White Rabbit?

suzieseller on Dec 25, 2009

Number 84, YES Tim Burton should make a wizard of Oz movie!!! We know the classic, and I have great respect for that movie. But wouldn't anybody see a new Wizard of Oz musical made in movie magic they have today? Give them a chance! Look at the trailer of Alice in Wonderland. Wouldn't you see the Land of OZ like that. That's awesome!! I think Tim Burton would make a great job doing a remake of the movie with a bunch of new songs. And for instance, Johny Depp as the scarecrow. Wouldn't that be hilarious?? Just like 'Charlie and the Chocolate factory'. Tim Burton made a brilliant remake, and it made me buy the classic one. And I don't think I was the only one. So don't be afraid a classic movie will be forgotten after a successful remake! There are two new Oz movies in the making 1. The CGI movie by John Boorman, more based on the book then the classic movie was. I'm very curious! will be released this year or 2011. 2. A dark version of the Wizard of OZ bij Olson like the action figures of McFarlane. Not one of my favorites. But there is not much exact information about that one. I hope Tim Burton will make one two. That's one of my wishes for several years now!

I would much rather see a American McGee's Alice movie than this. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_McGee%27s_Alice

I'm so excited! Tim Burton makes such twisted movies and this is such a dark and twisted side! I love it. I think Depp is a wonderful choice because he adapts to so many rolls, from Edward Sissorhands (which was pretty strange), Pirates, Public Enemies, Sweeny Todd (which was pretty dark since so many of you think he can't play a dark roll), as well as Willie Wonka...that was just a strange movie and almost a satire of the original. I can't wait!

looks cheap to me, sorry. But bad 3D chartoons we can watch in the childerens channels, too. Looks like Willy Wonka is making advertises for organic food, with that green top hat... The queer too is nothing we haven't seen yet. I like burton, but his clay stop-motion like movies were better.

I love how Burton feels the need to ruin every single classic with his pseudo-goth mind.Why can't this guy just stop?
