Sometimes I wish Tim Burton would quit having a threesome with Depp and Bonham-Carter. EVERY movie he does, it seems, involves them both. And we all know what to expect, as wonderfully creepy as it is. I would like to see a movie where both of the characters didn't look like they had just died. It's starting to get like a Jim Carey movie.
At any rate, of course I will watch it at some point, maybe in the theaters. It was one of my favorites as a child.

Quoting Pyrex (Reply 4): The only way to make Alice in Wonderland creepier than the original is to have Tim Burton direct it and make Johnny Depp the star.
I'm guessing you're referring to the book (I've read excerpts, but not the whole thing) rather than the Disney animated version? Has there ever been another feature film version of "Alice In Wonderland"?
Back to the original question: Yes, I'll definitely see the movie. Alan Rickman should be outstanding as The Caterpillar!

Even without Tim Burton making him the obvious choice, I couldn't imagine anyone else doing justice to the mad hatter role the way I expect Johnny Depp will and I'm really excited. Going to the midnight imax premiere with my sister, who conveniently happens to be taking a vacation from her job down at Disney to come home for a week and I'm sure she's probably 10x more obsessed as I am.

Quoting oa260 (Reply 18): I liked Charlie and the Chocolate Factory but I still prefered the original. I guess its because I grew up with it as a kid.
The original being the one with Gene Wilder I'm assuming?
I like both, but personally I think the the Johnny Depp version did a really good job for a remake ... I agree though, the original was great since I grew up with it as well, but for a remake I think they really pulled it off.
