On Thursday night in Los Angeles, [artist id="783"]Blink-182[/artist]‘s Mark Hoppus and [artist id="1235716"]Fall Out Boy[/artist]‘s Pete Wentz 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 Hoppus 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 hit theaters Friday (March 5). Check out Wentz’s review right here!
“I think it would be an incredibly daunting task to create an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ film that simultaneously stuck to the original text, held true to the beloved animated version, and set out to blaze its own trail. Tim Burton did an amazing job of incorporating all three into a great movie. It looks and sounds amazing, the effects are incredible, and the story moved along quickly. Johnny Depp ruled as the Mad Hatter.
“To be honest, I was a little scared walking into the theater. ‘Alice in Wonderland’ is one of my favorite books of all time, and I grew up loving the original animated version. How could anyone possibly attempt to build on that which has been held as perfection by generations? Tim Burton nailed it.”
