When the first trailer for Tim Burton's live-action take on Lewis Carroll's 'Alice in Wonderland' premiered at Comic-Con in July, it seemed like Burton had all the pieces in place for another goth-stained, Burtonesque classic: Mia Wasikowska as a nineteen-year-old Alice, Helena Bonham Carter as the diminutive, trecherous Red Queen, Anne Hathaway as the rival White Queen, and Johnny Depp's orange-haired Mad Hatter bouncing manically in between them.

But we only caught glimpses of Burton's Wonderland then, snippets of landscapes, hints at the twists and turns Burton made to the famous fairy tale land. But in this full-length trailer, we see Wonderland bloom in full: a place that's as dark and fog-ridden as it is vibrant and mysterious.

'Alice in Wonderland' Trailer No. 2

'Alice in Wonderland' Trailer in HD


In the film, hitting theaters March 5, Wonderland has fallen under the Red Queen's grips, and its up to Alice to save the day, but not without first butting heads with the whole, twisted gang: the toothy Cheshire Cat (Stephen Fry), Tweedledee and Tweedledum (voiced by Matt Lucas), and the excellent Crispin Glover's Knave of Hearts.

The best moments of this new full-length trailer, however, belong to Bonham Carter's Red Queen, a sublime creation of comic menace. "Off with their heads!" seems almost too natural of a line for her, but a few moments later, as we watch the queen rest her boots on an oinking pig and tell Depp's Hatter "I love a warm pig belly for my aching feet," it's clear that the Wonderland Burton's given us here is one we already know by heart, but is still capable of new surprises.
