Alice in Wonderland
While The King's Speech leads the pack with twelve Oscar nominations, Black Swan did the horror genre proud by landing five prestigious nominations earlier today. And the much maligned The Wolfman made a surprise appearance as well with a nod in the Makeup category for Rick Baker and Dave Elsey.
On again. Off again. On again. Off again. That's been about par for the course concerning Marilyn Manson's idea for a movie called Phantasmagoria, which was to be based on Alice in Wonderland scribe Lewis Carroll. Everything seemed to have been in place. We even had a good cast consisting of Manson himself, Lily Cole, Tilda Swinton, and Evan Rachel Wood.
It was years ago when we first reported on Marilyn Manson's idea for a movie called Phantasmagoria, which was to be based on Alice in Wonderland scribe Lewis Carroll. Despite numerous delays, it appears things *may* be back on track as a teaser trailer has recently surfaced.
A lot of collections hit store shelves this week including three horror sets, a Sherlock Holmes four-pack, three sci-fi quartets, and a package from 20th Century Fox consisting of The Fly, The Omen, and Independence Day in honor of "75 years of award-winning drama". In addition, fans of the series Poltergeist: The Legacy finally get Season 2 on disc, albeit in the form of an on demand recorded DVD-R.
With its March 5th premiere approaching, Tim Burton's 3D vision of Alice in Wonderland is sure to appeal to genre fans. Which is why we're providing a video tour of the props, costumes, and set pieces from the film that Nomad recorded for us during last year's San Diego Comic-Con.
Lots of goodies are hitting DVD and Blu-ray this week including the better than it should have been Saw VI, the second installment of Matt Pizzolo's Godkiller: Walk Among Us, Frank Henenlotter's return to form Bad Biology, and our pick of the week, Canada's claustrophobic Pontypool.
We've been a bit hit or miss with our coverage of Tim Burton's upcoming Alice in Wonderland due to not being entirely sure how horror oriented it may be, but after seeing Medicom's new Alice and Mad Hatter figures from Japan, we just had to share.
Medicom has held a Disney license for some time now ... sometimes creating beautiful vinyl figures capturing every inch of your favorite characters and sometimes taking that character to extremes we never expected!
Everyone's gearing up for next week's huge show, the beast known as San Diego Comic-Con, and you can look forward to some pretty insane coverage from us live at the event, but even as we speak the media machine is officially in overdrive!
We all knew Tim Burton was liable to come up with some pretty amazing imagery for his upcoming Alice in Wonderland, and today we found out just how incredible it is.
We're still not sure exactly how "dark" Tim Burton's adaptation of Lewis Carroll's classic tale Alice in Wonderland will be but thought both he and the story have enough fans that you guys would be interested in seeing some preliminary pictures from the set.
If you can give Tim Burton anything, it’s that he gets his actors to wear some pretty ridiculous things in the name of his art. Take, for example, this candid shot of Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter from Burton’s upcoming Alice in Wonderland adaptation. Not what I expected, for sure.
Some good news came down regarding Tim Burton’s upcoming unnecessary re-interpretation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland; Crispin Glover has joined the cast as the Knave of Hearts according to THR!
Ah ha! Finally it has happened -- the inevitable casting of Burton regular Helena Bonham Carter in his latest film, Alice in Wonderland. I knew I should’ve gone to Vegas to get a bet on the timing of this announcement; I could be a very rich man right now.
Michael Sheen, no relation to Charlie or Martin, has joined the cast of Tim Burton’s twisted re-imagining of Alice in Wonderland, according to this morning’s Variety.
