In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Wow! Just saw new trailer for Disney's/Tim Burton's 3D "Alice in Wonderland," starring Johnny Depp

Above, actress Mia Wasikowska as Alice
Walt Disney Pictures forthcoming
Alice in Wonderland.

Over the weekend, I saw the new trailer for

newest little dividend that'll keep
on giving,
Tim Burton's 3-D Alice in
, starring Johnny Depp,
Ann Hathaway
and Helena Bonham
, with twenty-year old Australian
Mia Wasikowska starring as

(She'll also be playing Jane Eyre in a new
film out in 2011 produced by BBC Films.
Once Alice comes out, her life of relative
anonymity disappears forever.)

Alice is slated to come out March 5th and
based on what I've seen thus far, it's a
safe bet I'll be among those
in line to see it
the first weekend.

It's really the damnedest thing I ever saw,
and the music by
Danny Elfman is both
weirdly and instantly familiar once you
hear it, like so many other memorable
Disney TV/film
scores and themes in my
head and yours, though mine, necessarily
ones from things you may well
have forgotten, like, say, well,
The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh,
starring Patrick McGoohan.

The particular Alice trailer link I have here
is the one that I believe has the most context
of the various
trailers on the Internet, since
it includes the very reason she is trying
escape from things in the first place:


Looks like the Mouse House has invented
a new
Billion $$$ printing press again!

I actually spent a good 45 minutes on the
ingenious movie website over the weekend
trying different things out, and it's just
amazing how ridiculously clever they are:


Really looks like film director
Tim Burton
is firmly back in the
GENIUS camp -again!
This time, to stay.

Speaking of 3D films, at her her Wax Word
blog today, Sharon Waxman, editor of
The Wrap, the best new addition to the
Hollywood scene this year, waxes about
some well-known Hollywood film directors
with a strong hankering to make some 3D
films in the future -and she names the

Hollywood Seized by 3D Mania

What a night we had! #HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 2016
