Trailer Probe : Alice in Wonderland

Trailer Probe watches sci-fi-ish movie trailers to help you waste your computer time wisely.

Alice in Wonderland

Dork disengagement level: Eeeeyaaagh! Helena Bonham Carter's head is larger than usual!

I get it. Johnny Depp plays wacky people. He should play a doctor or a lawyer like every other actor, all the time.

A Tim Burton movie with no Danny Elfman "la la la" soundtrack is like corn flake without the milk.

Now Alice is a sprightly maiden, not a precocious youngster. That makes me feel weird.

Now the rabbit looks like a real rabbit, not a cartoon rabbit like in the Disney cartoon. That makes me feel weird.

Geek explosion content: The rabbit has no pants!

Of all the movies where a girl falls in a hole, this one may be the best.

All the parts we remember from the Disney cartoon are in the trailer: She drinks the stuff that makes her bigger, and then the other one. Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. And my favorite part from the Disney cartoon: Hanging out looking bored with Anne Hathaway.

Geek explosion level: 800,000 geek parts per million.
