Avril in Wonderland

February 18th, 2010 by

Unless you’ve been living in a hole*, then you know that on March 5th, Alice will visit Wonderland once again — this time in Tim Burton’s cinematic interpretation of Lewis Carroll’s classics, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass.

Nancy and I have already marked our calendars for opening weekend**, but it’s still quite a while to wait. Luckily, Avril Lavigne has provided some entertainment to tide us over: a new music video for her song, “Alice (Underground),” which will play over the opening and ending credits of the upcoming movie. Check it out:

So, what do you think of the video?
I love that Avril’s wearing jeans and a T-shirt when she falls down the hole and is suddenly rocking a huge goth dress when she emerges on the other side. But I’m definitely NOT a fan of Avril’s face being superimposed everywhere, especially when she’s sitting at the Mad Hatter’s table. Also, how does she escape Wonderland at the end? She just runs on out of there?

Well, at least there’s a juicy montage of scenes from the new film!*** The movie looks like it’s going to be WAY different from the books, but that’s not going to stop me from following the White Rabbit all the way to my local movie theater. Leave a comment if you’re planning to see it too!

* A hole such as the one Alice falls into, perhaps?

** What, you think we have other social engagements? Sadly, no.

    I don’t like Alice in Wonderland. Or the Disney movie. Or…

      @Hahaha me: I heard this movie is going to diverge a lot from the original story. It takes place when Alice is 19 and she’s revisiting Wonderland — but she had totally forgotten about her first trip there! Since it’s so different from the book, maybe this will be the first Alice-related film you enjoy! Guess we’ll just have to wait and see…
