New Hi-Res Portraits from Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland and Your Chance to See Teaser Trailer

Johnny Depp as The Mad HatterIt’s not news, I know, but Disney has sent us hi-res images of the portraits of the Alice in Wonderland characters from the Vanity Fair photo shoot.

You can click on any of the thumbnails to view a larger image or click on the PicLens link to start a slideshow.

Madea Sends Kids to Walt Disney World After Being Subjected to Racism at Pool

Tyler Perry, the creator of the popular Medea character and multiple sit-coms has a lot of televisions. And it’s because of one television, not in-particular, that Perry overheard a small boy crying on the news because he was kicked out of a swimming pool because of the color of his skin.

According to the posting on his website, the private club’s pool had apparently been rented out for use by an organization called Creative Steps, founded by Althea Wright to benefit inner-city children who are primarily black and Hispanic.
