On Thursday night in Los Angeles, [artist id=”1235716″]Fall Out Boy’s[/artist] Pete Wentz and [artist id=”783″]Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus[/artist] hosted an advance IMAX 3-D screening of Tim Burton’s much-anticipated “Alice in Wonderland” (just one of the perks of collaborating on a song for the film’s soundtrack , we assume). They ate popcorn and wore goofy 3-D glasses, posed with a Mad Hatter lookalike on the red carpet, and afterward, took the time to write up their reactions to the film for MTV News. What can we say? They’re good guys.
Here’s what Wentz had to say about “Alice in Wonderland,” Tim Burton’s much-anticipated latest opus, which stars Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter and many others, and hits theaters today. Check out Hoppus’ review right here!
“So I got the chance to go see ‘Alice in Wonderland’ with Mark Hoppus tonight. Before the movie began, Mark and I did a bit of a Q&A — pretty much all of our jokes went over terribly and now I wished I just had sat in my seat.
“I have to preface this by saying I am a die-hard Tim Burton fan. There isn’t a single movie he has made that I don’t like. I went into this thinking that it was going to be a remake, but it wasn’t (apparently I had not done my research due to my excessive reading of comments on AbsolutePunk.net). What Tim did was essentially move the ‘Alice’ story into his own world. I don’t want to give much away, but for the actors to have to work with CGI characters it appeared almost seamless. And yes, girls, Johnny Depp is still flawless in every single way. I think this is a movie I’d have to see twice to fully grasp it.
“Mark Hoppus tried the old hole-in-the-popcorn-bag trick with me. It did not work. The movie, however, did.”
Check out everything we’ve got on “Alice in Wonderland.”
