New Releases for the Week of March 5, 2010

Alice in Wonderland

Tim Burton is sending Johnny Depp and his friends to see you and BOY are they mad!

ALICE IN WONDERLAND

(Disney) Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Alan Rickman, Christopher Lee, Helena Bonham Carter, Timothy Spall, Matt Lucas, Crispin Glover, Michael Sheen, Stephen Fry, Paul Whitehouse, Barbara Windsor. Directed by Tim Burton

Lewis Carroll, meet Tim Burton. Something tells me these two would have had a lot in common, judging from the text of Carroll’s classic tale as well as the images from Burton’s body of work. This is the retelling of the beloved children’s story by a man who was born to tell it. An all-star cast makes this one of the most anticipated movies of the year.

Three intertwining tales of three cops in Brooklyn’s 65th precinct will see their loyalties tested, their faith shaken and their worlds forever changed.
