If you guys aren’t smoking the peace pipe just yet, go on and do so. I’ll wait … OK, so, here we have new images from Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, starring Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, and Mia Wasikowska as Alice.
(UPDATE: See photos of Johnny Depp, Ann Hathaway, and other stars at the Alice in Wonderland Ultimate Fan Event here.)
New hi-res images of the White Rabbit, the March Hare, the Dormouse and the Cheshire Cat have been released and they are pretty damn trippy.
A re-imagining of the Lewis Carroll novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland promises to be a return to the story’s darker origins.
Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland has a date with theaters across the country on March 5, 2010. To catch the newest trailer, go here.
Two photos from Jonathan Liebesman’s alien-invasion feature Battle: Los Angeles have hit the web. The above pic is a shot of a mushroom cloud explosion on a freeway (said to be a bus after being blown to smithereens by malicious extraterrestrials). The bottom is that of actor Aaron Eckhart (Dark Knight, Black Dahlia) as a Marine staff sergeant ready to get some payback for the U.S. of fucking A.
The film’s synopsis reads:
When unknown forces put the City of angels under attack, it’s up to a Marine staff sergeant (Aaron Eckhart) and his new platoon to come to the rescue. As the invasion hits the streets of L.A., the Marines become our first and last line of defense against a highly powerful enemy. Bridget Moynahan (I, Robot), Michelle Rodriguez (Avatar) and Michael Peña (World Trade Center) co-star alongside an ensemble cast including Ramon Rodriguez and Ne-Yo.
Battle: Los Angeles, described as Independence Day meets Black Hawk Down, takes its name from a supposed massive UFO sighting in Santa Monica, California said to have taken place on Feb. 25, 1942 just weeks after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. According to UFO enthusiasts, the alien ship was attacked by the U.S. military under the belief that it was Japanese aircraft. I’m not sure if this plays a part in the film, but you can read more about it here.
Liebesman’s previous efforts include Darkness Falls and Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, two highly enjoyable and stupidly underrated horror flicks. Battle: Los Angeles is reportedly due in theaters in 2011. I’ll letcha know if that changes.
On Jan. 8, we will finally face the Daybreakers at the local movie theater. But, until then, it doesn’t hurt to know what we’re up against. Lionsgate has released the following clips to scare you off. But, I think they will just whet your appetite.
The film’s synopsis reads:
Two-time Academy Award nominee® Ethan Hawke plays Edward Dalton, a researcher in the year 2019, in which an unknown plague has transformed the world’s population into vampires. As the human population nears extinction, vampires must capture and farm every remaining human, or find a blood substitute before time runs out.
The Daybreakers is directed by Peter and Michael Spierig and stars Ethan Hawke (Gattica), Willem Dafoe,(Anti-Christ) Sam Neil (Jurassic Park), and Isabel Lucas (Transformers 2: Rise of the Fallen).
So says the latest one-minute promo for the sixth and final season of ABC’s innovative sci-fi drama “Lost.” As with previous TV spots, new footage is not revealed in the latest promo. Regardless, the spot will definitely push “Lost” fan’s buttons (get it? push buttons? Ah, never mind).
