Tim Burton‘s fantastical new 3D film Alice in Wonderland won’t open in theaters until next Friday March 5 but the film had its world premiere in Odeon Leicester Square in London, England earlier today … kicking off the film’s final PR push leading up to the film’s release. Here are a few photos from the
red green carpet arrivals at today’s Wonderland premiere:
Maybe it’s just her natural complexion or she wanted to bring an element of her character to tonight’s proceedings. Whatever the reason, Anne Hathaway decided on a pale and interesting look as she attended the Royal World Premiere of Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland in London tonight. The actress, who plays The White Queen in the new 3D movie, looked stunning in a brown sparkly dress, which showed off her white skin beautifully. Despite her strapless dress, she braved the cold and wet weather, which is pretty much guaranteed whenever there’s a red carpet event in London at this time of the year. And a little thing like the rain was certainly not going to stop the stars of the film attending the premiere of the acclaimed director’s new celluloid offering. Burton arrived arm-in-arm with actress partner Helena Bonham-Carter, who plays the foul-tempered monarch the Queen of Hearts, and had accessorised her outfit with red heart earrings and had sewn silver hearts into her dress. Johnny Depp, who plays the Mad Hatter, was one of the first to arrive in Leicester Square in London, dressed quite somberly compared to his on-screen alter-ego. The 46-year-old actor, looked rather dapper in a black suit and white open-necked shirt as he posed for pictures outside the venue. Ironically, the film is being premiered at the Odeon cinema, part of the cinema chain that initially refused to screen the film after a row with Disney over the early planned release of the DVD … Thankfully, the dispute was resolved today just in time for tonight’s premiere.
And so … the countdown is on for the much-anticipated release of Alice in Wonderland! Today’s premiere from London was broadcast live online so that fans from around the world could watch the celebs make their way down the rain-soaked carpet … I watched a bit of it but it wasn’t all that interesting. I’m totally focused on the film itself. David and I will be attending an early screening of the film next week at the El Capitan Theater on Hollywood Blvd. and I am SO excited!! Wee!! Can’t wait!!
