Off With Their Heads!

The teaser trailer for the forthcoming Alice in Wonderland à la Tim Burton did not include a scene Alice fans adore; the Queen of Hearts (in this case, Helena Bonham Carter) screaming, “Off with their heads!” (it seems Burton has renamed her the Red Queen, who is actually in Through the Looking-Glass, but this is not a literal interpretation of Lewis Carroll’s books. Burton’s film is about a 19-year-old Alice, who returns to the lands she visited as a young girl).

A new trailer addresses includes the beloved pronouncement and adds another catch phrase for the Queen, one which may eclipse the original.

Still no caterpillar, however.

The movie opens March 5, 2010.
