Oh Alice…

We just saw this movie and it is awesome!

A little trivia:

The Mad Hatter asks Alice several times, “Why is a raven like a writing desk?” This is directly from the Lewis Carroll books. Carroll admits that there never was an answer to the question, he made it up without an answer. Some people have claimed the answer is because Edgar Allan Poe worked on both.

The Los Angeles Times reports that film director Tim Burton based the White Queen on TV cook and cookbook author Nigella Lawson. The character in the movie is played by Anne Hathaway. “There’s this very beautiful cooking show host in England named Nigella Lawson and I quietly had her as my image for this character,” Burton said. “She’s really beautiful and she does all this cooking, but then there’s this glint in her eye and when you see it you go, ‘Oh, whoa, she’s like really … nuts.’ I mean in a good way. Well, maybe. I don’t know.”

Helena Bonham Carter stated on a February 17, 2010 “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” (2005) show that two weeks before its premiere, Tim Burton was still working on the movie.
