Disney has sent us hi-res versions of all of the images from Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland that were just published by USA Today, including a couple of others that weren’t. We had to scale them down a little, but we couldn’t wait to be able to share them with you. So please enjoy this new gallery of images from the film.
If you want to see the images in the full size, click the individual thumbnails below, then click on the resize arrows in the lower right-hand corner.
Disney held screenings of a scene from A Christmas Carol in 3D today at select cities nationwide and I was fortunate enough to be able to sit in on one at the 8-story-tall IMAX theater in New York. Best I can tell, this is the same footage that was shown to audiences at Cannes earlier this year.
The scene was that in which Ebenezer Scrooge’s belated business partner, Jacob Marley, pays Scrooge a visit to warn him of the fateful night’s events, in which three ghosts will attempt to right the wrongs of Scrooge’s ways. Instead of the ‘I’d rather not’ response that’s shown in the trailer and also in the film clip we brought you a while back, Scrooge asks if he can have all three at once instead (which probably would make for an interesting take on the classic).
USA Today reveals some promotional images as well as some amazing stills from the new Tim Burton take on the classic set to be released in 2010 in 3D.
