The second trailer for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland went up a few days ago and I have to say I’m even more excited to see it. In this trailer you get a lot of sneak peeks at things that I hadn’t seen before.
To start, Crispin Glover looks like an absolute bad ass. I hope he doesn’t say anything in the movie, just fights people. I’m also enjoying the CGI more and more, it’s almost like a cartoon at this point which is kind of exciting. When you look at Johnny Depp’s face it’s almost like it moves in unnatural way, sort of like when you watch an anime and their hair moves to show a reaction to something.
Then there are the little details. The Red Queen, played by Helena Bonham Carter, leads an army of playing cards, while the White Queen, played by Anne Hathaway, leads an army of chess pieces. Alice appears on the side of the White Queen in a suit or armor, perhaps representing the knight on a chessboard. Then toward the end of the trailer there’s something that looks like a giant dragon, which I’m pretty sure is the Jabberwocky, a creature which was first written about in Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There.
The film comes out on May 5th, 2010, which now seems farther away then I want it to be.
