Upcoming Movie

American McGee's Alice is scheduled to be released this summer.

For those who don't know:
Set years after Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, the game features an older, more cynical and macabre incarnation of Alice.

Shortly after her second adventure, Alice's parents are killed in a fire of which she is the only survivor. Becoming catatonic she is institutionalized in Rutledge Asylum. Years later, the White Rabbit summons Alice to aid a radically altered Wonderland, now under the despotic rule of the Queen of Hearts.

I loved the look and feel of the game when it came out. The story is decent. This has actual potential to be a great film, especially if you are the sort of person who enjoys Grimm's Grimmest.

It is being directed by Wes Craven. Alice will be played by Sarah Michelle Gellar.

Here's hoping it's more than just another uninspired gore flick.
