Man I love Burton. Especially when it's Burton and Depp, because Johnny seems to be the only actor who can match Tim's visual imagination and group it with some fantastical performances. Other things the duo have worked on together are Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, the Corpse Bride, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Sleep Hollow, Charlie and the Chocolate Factor. And of course, my favorite movie of all time, the Nightmare Before Christmas, has the golden stamp of Burton, too.
Below are some images released for the upcoming film, which according to Depp in a recent press conference in California is going to be something really special. Several times he declared shock that he wasn't fired for his extreme character choices in portraying the Mad Hatter. As you can see, the look that Depp helped invent is a bit insane... which is appropriate given the undercurrent of the story. Expect another quirky performance, such as his portrayal of Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean or Willy Wonka in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
