Looks like there's a new trailer for Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland (a.k.a. Alice 2010.) This comes our way via Spike. Supposedly there is new content, but all I've managed to identify as new is a profile view of Johnny Depp. It also appears that the order of things has been shuffled. Curiouser and Curiouser. Here it is!
Not much info about this photo shoot except that it was done in a famous French abbey near Paris, and it has to do with Alice in Wonderland (natch). I was just in Paris a few weeks ago and it was AMAZING.
It's really amazing when I can report something relevant to the Tim Burton move, Alice 2010, and today I have something to report. Not that I'm excited. It's a little hard to get very excited about nail polish. A while back I reported here that Disney is working with designers and manufacturers to come out with a slew of Alice in Wonderland 2010 related products. It looks like the first of the bunch will be OPI nail polish. OPI Nail Polish on AmazonVia.
Paul Cumes Fine Art Gallery in Santa Barbara is having an art show with an Alice in Wonderland Theme. The show starts Friday December 5th and is open through January 7, 2010. As the title would suggest the show will be full of Alice in Wonderland inspired dolls and plushes. Here is a full press release.
It's getting so you can't throw a rock without hitting something related to Alice in Wonderland, probably thanks in part to Alice 2010 and Tim Burton. Trendhunter Magazine has noticed this phenomenon and posted a list of "60 Alice in Wonderland Fantasies - From Surreal Fairytale Photography to Mini Mad Hatter Hats." Check it out here. Too bad it's so hard to navigate the site. It's like Tumblr but a million times more annoyingly hard to find your way to the original. I'm partial to the Steam Society crown fascinator pictured here. Such a cool photo!
To be honest, I don't know how this fits in with the theme of this site, but here it is: How to be Lucky.
You're late for a very important date. Hmmm. OK let's say it's over, but there is more Alice than you can shake a stick at the "Alice in Wonderland Week" at the Neverending Shelf. You should check it out!
There is enough Alice in Wonderland art at this site to keep anyone occupied for hours. There is the inevitable Sir John Tenniel, but in addition there is fan art, photography, art from American McGee's Alice, and some NSFW art as well. All the art is posted with links back to the source, which is really nice. Posted above is Pool Of Tears, by Erin Kelso (aka bluefooted).
First up is an Etsy store which has some neat Alice in Wonderland prints, among other things.
If you're a real die-hard Disney fan, you might be interested in this article about the Blu-Ray DVD releases of Dumbo and Fantasia and how they've been juggled. At the very end is speculation on when Disney will be releasing both Alice 2010 and the 1951 versions on Blu-Ray. The author guesstimates that this might happen in August 2010. Apparently they call these Blu-Ray releases "Diamond Series".
If you're looking to decorate your room in all Alice in Wonderland gear, it's pretty hard to go wrong with this surprisingly complete collection of switch and outlet wall plates. Shown are Alice herself and the White Rabbit in a Disney-like forest scene. It's almost obsessive. You'll see what I mean when you get to the bottom.
