Johnny Depp is The Mad Hatter -- FIRST PICTURE!

Check out this sneak peek look of Johnny Depp as the trippy Mad Hatter from the Tim Burton-directed remake of Alice in Wonderland.

Looks like the leaked photo from November was definitely a real one!

Below is Burton‘s wife, Helena Bonham Carter, with a digitally enhanced swelled head to play the domineering Red Queen, who likes nothing better than to scream “Off with their heads!” Thanks, USA Today!

ARE YOU EXCITED to see the new 3D version of Alice in Wonderland???

    EWH. This looks disturbing.

  • Jill

    I can totally see Depp in this role.

  • hohum

    Finally, an adaptation of Alice in Wonderland that is as demented and twisted and Lewis Carroll probably meant for it to be. I’m so excited!

  • a total fan

    Love Depp !! He is so different in every role he does. From a pirate to this? This is an actor true to his craft. He becomes whom ever he needs to be.

  • Bella’s mommy

    I agree with #4! I can’t wait to see it. Although- I think Johnny looks a little bit like Elijah Wood in this picture. Weird. Doesn’t matter- Johnny can do no wrong.

    Tim Burton + Johnny Depp are a movie match made in heaven. This will be a much darker Alice in Wonderland, as it should be!

  • evalynn

    it’s a little freaky
    but i can totally see johnny depp playing this role
    he is an amazing actor!!

  • Irish Girl

    @Face: Great comment. I couldn’t agree more. TB is my favourite director, and JD is a genius. I like their humorous, yet darkly provocative take on story telling.

  • angela

    Too creepy for me. I would have nightmares.

  • katkat

    It almost looks like Elijah Wood.

  • K.G.

    Johnny Depp is easily becoming the most overrated actor. He’s been lazy this decade compared to his brilliant work in the 90′s. Only seeing this for Anne Hathaway and Helena Boham Carter. jared why didn’t you post Anne’s picture?

  • K.G.
  • Shakirakitten

    Fabulous makeup. Love it and can’t wait to see it. Alice in Wonderland was one of my favorite childhood stories ever.

  • K.G.

    Though I still like johnny, just find him overrated.

  • celebrityobsessed.

    OMG! Can’t wait!!!

  • taylorswiftfan

    Johnny as Willy Wonka was unsettling enough.

    Love it! Tim Burton never fails to provide great visuals.. even with his Pee Wee Herman movie lol. I’m super excited :)

    Side note.. I’m wondering why he ever left Lisa Marie to be with Helena, Lisa was super hot and unique looking. I thought they made a nice couple.

  • navee

    WOW!! very nice and creepy…

  • deraj tsuj

  • hannah

    wow, some long days in the makeup chair i’m sure

  • vmars111

    Oh god, first Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and now this…

    Tim Burton sure knows how to make Johnny Depp THE NUMBER ONE MOST WANTED PEDOPHILE-SERIAL RAPIST MURDERER!

  • Jill

    The cast sounds great. Alan Rickman is playing the Caterpillar and Christopher Lee is the Jabberwocky. Who’s playing the Cheshire Cat?

  • wow
  • Noticias de famosos

    The photos are fantastic and very creative, I love!

  • Ilia

    I am very excited – these images look very promising.

  • Nicole

    I thought this was Elijah wood when I first looked at the pic and then I read it was Johnny Depp. Pretty creepy. It is really getting real old of them keep making remakes of Alice and Wonderland. I like to know how many times can you tell this story over and over again. It is just getting boring. Come up with something new for pete’s sake.

  • angel hair

    kind of looks like elijah wood
