'Alice' in waiting

It's old news by now but I thought it would be remiss not to give a special mention to the much anticipated big screen adaptation of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland by the master of quirky movie macabre, Tim Burton.

For a photo essay on the making of the movie, its stars (including Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter) and unique look, see this link to the Guardian.

To watch the film's official trailer, click here. With the release date set to March 5, 2010, there is a while to wait on this film. Plenty of time to re-read the book, originally published in 1865.
