This weekend’s big movie release is Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. I myself will be in line in just a few hours. But for those of you who enjoy trivia, here’s a bit you can impress your friends with:
There have been nearly forty film and television adaptations of Lewis Carroll’s classic book. The first, released in 1903, was an eight minute, black and white, silent film that ran 8 minutes.
Alice in Wonderland is the seventh time Johnny Depp has worked with Tim Burton. And the sixth time Burton has worked with his wife Helena Bonham Carter.
Mia Wasikowska won the role of Alice over Amanda Seyfried and Lindsay Lohan. Burton said it was Wasikowska’s gravity that won her the role.
