I personally love all adaptions of this film and cannot wait to see Tim Burtons vision of this story come to life.
The first disney version of this story has never been my favorite though [it's deffinitely wonderful, but not my favorite] for some reason, i think it was because it was too short? idk..& personally that version wasn't that much of a 'mind fuck' for me as child. I love this story because every adaption is just plain beautiful, imagination running a muck.
I think that's what i love most about this story, how accessible it actually is. Which is why [i think] almost everyone loves it, who doesn't love wonderland?...it just opened doors of whimsical & out of the norm possibilities of imagining when i was a child. haha I guess that is a mind fuck? :buck2: but one deserving to be there though.
My favorite although [no body elses usually] has always been this one, aesthetically i was captured when first seeing this at 7?..6?

[This is the best clip i could find, quality wise.]
I'm sure many of you've seen it...I just think it's a good adaption of the book...I also think Tim Burton's will have much of the book fully alive in the movie [although mixed with poems & different stories.]

I'm kind of terrified about the hype for this film. It seems like its being made specifically for a trend and a marketing possibility.
I wish American McGees Alice was still being made into a film.

Frankly I think films based on video games are always horrible.  They often don't even have the vaguest resemblance to the game...

As for this film, I just want to say that I love Johnny Depp!

the trailer is up now:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hiPR6kA4_iU

looks good, but lets hope everyone dose not get obbsessed with it.
You are wishing for the impossible my friend.

1. Its being done by Tim Burton.
2. It has Johnny Depp

Those two things alone are reasons people are going to get obsessed with it. Now, I have nothing against either men; I like Tim Burton's films and I like Depp as an actor. However, that doesn't mean that they are perfect. I'm just going to wait until the movie comes out because I do love Alice in Wonderland.

It isn't really a remake. More of an new adaptation of the original story. I can't wait to see it  :coolsmiley:

after watching the trailer 3 times, i finally figured out where i'd seen the girl who plays Alice before... she was in the TV show 'In Treatment'. and she's Australian. ha... figures.

Litterally can not wait for this film, Helena Bonham Carter as the Queen of Hearts = WIN.  :love5:

Part of me really wants this film to be like the 1988 film Alice (Neco z Alenky), but I'm looking forward to see the adaptions they've made to the story.

I think it looks pretty good, of course I LOVE Tim Burton (though his last few movies arent my favorites, his last great was Big Fish and before that was Ed Wood and everything before that was AMAZING, batman flicks excluded) and i LOVE Johnny Depp, and I love the story. The film looks beautiful, and Burton has injected his wierdness into it which seems perfect.
I do have a few gripes though... First and formost, it seems they are focusing too heavily on The Mad Hatter in promotion/advertising. second, it seems that The red Queen and the Queen of Hearts must once again be subjected to be combined into one character. Third, why the hell is Alice so old?...whatev. I'm sure I can overlook these things, there are certainly worse adaptations out there.
btw, Fuck Johnny Depp, ALAN RICKMAN IS THE CATTERPILLAR!  :love5:
