February 3rd, 2010 "Alice in Wonderland" Articles News

#50. Alice in Wonderland

Director: Tim Burton
Writer(s): Linda Woolverton
Producers: Joe Roth, Jennifer Todd, Suzanne Todd, Richard D. Zanuck and Burton
Distributor: Disney

The Gist: Based on Lewis Carroll’s beloved “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” (1865) and “Through the Looking-Glass” (1871), this sees Depp star as the Mad Hatter and Mia Wasikowska play 19-year-old Alice, who returns to the whimsical world she first encountered as a young girl, reuniting with her childhood friends: the White Rabbit, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Dormouse, the Caterpillar, the Cheshire Cat, and of course, the Mad Hatter. Alice embarks on a fantastical journey to find her true destiny and end the Red Queen’s reign of terror…..(more)

Cast: Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Crispin Glover, Anne Hathaway, Stephen Fry, Christopher Lee, Timothy Spall, Michael Sheen, Alan Rickman, Matt Lucas and Barbara Windsor.

Why is it on the list?: Burton has set the standard for mixing macabre, the highly imaginative and eye candy spectacle but I don’t think “big-budget” and grandiose have served Burton well in the recent past. From what has been shown so far, I don’t think we’ll need to go into this chemically challenged route – let’s hope that this strikes the right balance: with an emphasis on the performances.

Release Date/Status?: A wide release on March 5th.

February 3rd, 2010 "Alice in Wonderland" News

The world premiere of Tim Burton’s new film Alice In Wonderland is to take place in London on February 25, it has been announced.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall will be in attendance for the event as it is being held in aid of The Prince’s Foundation for Children and the Arts.

Alice In Wonderland’s stars – who include Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter – are expected to join the royal guests on the night.

The world premiere will be held at the capital’s Leicester Square before the highly-anticipated movie goes on general release across the UK on March 5.

The Prince’s Foundation for Children and the Arts is an educational charity which aims to help all British children to discover the arts as “an enjoyable part of life”.

Showing off her new shorter hair, Mia Wasikowska (pronounced Vah-shee-kov-ska) models in the garden for the February 2010 issue of Teen Vogue magazine.

The 20-year-old Aussie Alice in Wonderland star opened up to the mag about being Alice, fame and the upcoming Jane Eyre.

On taking fame as it comes: “I like my anonymity—that when I meet people they don’t know me. I like getting jobs because I auditioned for them, because of my ability as opposed to my celebrity.”

On playing the title character in the biggest fantasy story: “One of the things that was scary about taking on that role is the huge fan base; everybody has their own idea of who she is. So [Tim Burton and I] discussed, very early on, just being happy with her being our Alice…making her my own. I really think it will be exciting, especially for girls my age because it explores that period of your life when you have these expectations upon you and you’re finding that, amongst that, you have to try and hold on to yourself.”

On taking on the romantic story of Jane Eyre: “I’m completely excited. As a teenager I was very anxious. I had a lot of energy and passion that I wanted to channel into creative things, and I always felt like I wasn’t achieving enough.”

February 1st, 2010 Media News

Annie Leibovitz photographs the nine dolls on V.F.’s cover, as Evgenia Peretz explains why Anna Kendrick, Kristen Stewart, Carey Mulligan, et al. are nobody’s playthings.

Mia Wasikowska, 20, is the daughter of a Polish photographer mother and an Australian painter-and-collagist father. Her breakthrough on the HBO series In Treatment, as the fragile and yet fierce gymnast Sophie, suggested a deep intelligence and a reservoir of talent. Director Edward Zwick cast her in Defiance, about a group of Polish Jews banding together to escape the Nazis. Next she will play the title role in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, the love interest in Gus Van Sant’s next film, and the daughter of Julianne Moore and Annette Bening, two gay moms, in Lisa Cholodenko’s The Kids Are All Right.

Mia Wasikowska
You may remember this Australian beauty from her heart-wrenching role as a gymnast on HBO’s In Treatment, or maybe she’s a completely fresh face to you; either way, her down-under style is high on our radar and not to be overlooked! Wasikowska’s tomboyish pairing of vintage evening shorts and pilgrim buckle shoes is a uniquely chic choice for running between screenings, and we love how her black anorak offers a hint of outdoorsy spirit that’s perfectly appropriate for this mountain clime. Additionally, her sartorial fearlessness to pair burgundy shorts with a red sweater and a hint of a boater tee reminds that not only are we excited for her big-screen debut as Alice in Timothy Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, we are thrilled to continue to track her singular style! Get a head start by working in a few key Wasikowska-inspired pieces to your existing wardrobe, like a cozy scarf and some evening shorts. We recommend Chan Luu’s Luxurious Cashmere Silk Scarf ($195), and St. John’s Belted Shorts ($295) a posh pair that pays homage to Wasikowska’s unique color palette.
