The Lovely Bones (2009) and Alice in Wonderland (2010)

I have recently seen the trailer for 'The Lovely Bones' (see below) and I am so glad they decided to make this into a film as I read the book years ago when it was first published and I really loved it. From the trailer it looks like they have made it a little more eerie but I can see why that would work. It is a brilliant and touching story written by Alice Sebold, I would advise you read it before the film as it is so well written. It has been brilliantly cast and with Peter Jackson as the director it should be filmed and edited well too. I just pray they do justice to the book!!Here's a little bit of plot for you: Young girl is murdered but her, soul I suppose is the only word to describe it ends up in a limbo world which is wonderful and evil all at the same time. Her family and the police try to solve the case and she tries to help from her limbo. She can't pass over until her body is found and justice is served!

Cast includes: Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weisz, Susan Sarandon and Stanley Tucci (all awesome actors!!)

Some beautiful filming and CG stuff. I love the look of the Dali-esq rose opening under the ice that will be a stunning sequence!! There is going to be some really good imagery in this I think.

I also stumbled upon the new 'Alice in Wonderland' Trailer while looking for this. I was so excited when I heard this was Tim Burtons new project, it is going to be brilliant.
It has a stellar cast as always with his stuff. The list is huge!! Including: Johnny Depp, Anna Hathaway, Michael Sheen, Helena Bonham Carter (has he ever made a film that didn't star his wife at some point, although she just seems to fit most of the films he does, slightly strange), Alan Rickman, Crispin Glover, Christopher Lee, Stephen Fry, Timothy Spall and Matt Lucas. (Can you imagine how much that cast alone is costing him!)

Im so upset its not out until March next year though, ah well something to look forward to.

Loving this quote!! "There is a place. Like no place on Earth. A land full of wonder, mystery, and danger! Some say to survive it: You need to be as mad as a hatter"

So here is the trailer for that aswell, don't think you need a plot as its the same story I assume (although maybe with some Burton-esq twists!!)

Hope you enjoy them!
