26 February 2010
Alice in Wonderland had its world royal premiere in London on Thursday February 25, 2010. The stars of the film, including Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter came to the premiere in central London's Leicester Square where hundreds of fans were waiting to see them in pouring rain.
Curiously the British movie theater chain Odeon had resolved a dispute with Walt Disney Pictures about the release date for the DVD version just in time for the world premiere. Thus the U.K. audience will see the movie in theatres in 3D!
Tim Burton told a press conference he was relieved the issue was resolved.
"I'm just glad it's resolved. We made it 3D to be shown in the 3D screens and so I'm just very happy and grateful," he said. "3D and Alice seem to fit," Burton told Sky News. "There's something about the trippiness of the Alice world that helps bring you into that 3D space."
All is fine in Wonderland after all, or is it? Here are a couple of clips of the movie.
