    Today Wednesday January 27, 2010 Charles Lutwidge Dodgson would have been 178 years old being he was born on January 27, 1832 in Daresbury Cheshire England UK. His Novels Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass were written by a lecturer author of Mathematics pseudonym Lewis Carroll. Brilliant Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter transports us back to our youth our imagination is ignited through the directing expertise of Tim Burton. Magnificent Helena Bonham Carter The Red Queen regal wide eyed full of pride justified, Realist Anne Hathaway becomes a beautiful White Queen royally portrayed with dignity. Tim Burton gathers all of our childhood favorites they actually come alive Stephen Fry The Cheshire Cat permanent grin meow, Michael Sheen The White Rabbit on time, Magical Mia Wasikowska Alice Kinsley, Christopher Lee The Jabberwock scary villain, Crispin Glover The Knave of Hearts, Alan Rickman The Caterpillar, Matt Lucas Tweedledee/Tweedledum how lovable. Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter might sip tea with his best friends March Hare Paul Whitehouse, Dormouse Barbara Windsor perhaps Dodo Michael Gough, will be there. The Red Queen royally conducts court with courtiers of course, henchmen, stable hands all present and accounted for. Johnny Depp the Mad Hatter performs brilliantly for the 7th time under the direction of Tim Burton Helena Bonham for the 6th Time practice makes perfect. Screenplay Linda Woolverton alternate name Alice in Wonderland novel by pseudonym Lewis Carroll died January 14, 1898 he was 66 and thru his novels is alive and forever young thanks to Tim Burton Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter Christopher Lee bravo generational 178 years young. Dodgson A Poem by Denise Hoglund Thank You Anne Hathaway the White Queen and Helen Boham Carter The Red Queen also Mia Wasikowska Alice your portrayals of these favorite childhood characters is most appreciated.

    Excuse me PUNISHER, but Helena Bonham Carter is HOTT. Enough said, and she's a great actress, this is what I was afraid of. Just because she's dating the Director, and had his child, everyone automatically assumes that THAT'S how she gets into Tim Burton's movies and not because she's a great actress.

    6 years agoby @vampire2000Flag


    What a surprise Helena Carter is in another Tim Burton film. You'd think she's f*cking him. Oh wait, she is! I guess that explains how she still gets work, certainly isnt her fugly face getting her roles. Notice she always plays a witch (Harry Potter) or a f*cking nasty hooker (Fight Club). She gets all the sloppy seconds.

    No way!!!!! This movie gets better and better as I hear the news!!!!! Anne Hathaway has been one of my favorite actresses ever since I saw her in "The Princess Diaries," and I even went and saw the second in theaters. Yea, I liked them. Want to make something of it?! PLUS! Helena Bonham Carter returning again to work with Depp?!?!?!?!?! That's even BETTER! I mean, they both did awesome in "Tim Burton's Corpse Bride," and they also did spectacularly incredible in Tim Burton's adaptation of the Stage Musical, "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" (Which happens to be all time favorite movie ever.). So I guess what I'm trying to say here with this big old comment, is "I APPROVE ONE HUNDRED FREAKING PERCENT!!!!!"

    i'm with phil on this one, despite whatever chronyism may be at play, hbc is a good actress and will probably suit the role quite well.

    How did Tim Burton's wife make it into another of his movies? I suspect she's using sex for leverage...

    Regardless, Burton's Alice in Wonderland will be great!

    While I have no doubt that both Hathaway and Bonham Carter are cast their roles make no sense. The Red Queen and the Queen of Hearts are two different characters, the latter of which actually does cry out "Off with their heads!!" Plus both the White Queen and the Red Queen are characters in "Through the Looking Glass", the second book. Now while I do not know the script and it seems this will be another compilation of both stories, seeing as how Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum are cast(also characters in the second only), I think we need a more accurate description of what character Bonam Carter is playing. According to this description she is both the Queen of Hearts and the Red Queen which makes no sense, or maybe it does. It's Tim Burton after all and who doesn't play two roles sometimes?

    Since when is Helena Bonham Carter being cast as the Red Queen news? This has been confirmed for at least a week or so. I think some of you guys in here need to give Burton a break on his casting calls. Reguardless of how many times we see Burton, Depp, and Carter collaborate, those three have a great chemistry together and pull each film off quite well. If it works, whats there to bitch about?
