Walt Disney Studios has just begun airing a new television commercial for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. In addition to much of the footage previously released, the new tv ad shows a bit of footage from ‘the real world’ towards the beginning of the film in which Alice must face her fate shortly before spotting a well dressed rabbit.
Thanks to our good friends at Walt Disney Records, we are pleased to offer our biggest giveaway to date! Not just one, but BOTH soundtracks to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland (ARV: $37.98) with not just one but TEN sets to give away in all and not just one but THREE ways to enter. Here’s how!
IMPORTANT: You will be able to enter once per method, but can win only once regardless of the methods chosen.
Shortly after arriving in the Underland, Alice re-acquaints herself with the Cheshire Cat after a chance encounter with the bandersnatch, a horrible beast that has an appetite for destruction (and virtually everything else).
After the film and a quick wardrobe change (for some), no one was late to the after party at the Sanderson Hotel, even Crispin Glover who makes his first appearance in our photos for the evening. Also on hand were famed directors Terry Gilliam and Wes Anderson amongst others.
And of course the usual suspects were all in attendance: Tim Burton, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Mia Wasikowska, Matt Lucas, Alan Rickman (Absolum), Michael Sheen (White Rabbit), Paul Whitehouse (March Hare), Timothy Spall (Bayard), Barbara Windsor (Dormouse) and Christopher Lee (Jabberwocky), et al.
