There was a multitude of new wide and limited releases this weekend, but the top of the box office remained the same, if only for one more weekend. Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland again claimed the top spot.
Numbers like this will not dissuade Burton from doing more 're-imaginings' of whatever famous property next gets the greenlight. Congrats to the Disney team that produced this one. Oh wait, they were fired several months ago. Whoops.
Greenwashing is not only a rip-off if you pay more for a product based on green claims, but it can be dangerous by lulling us into using products carrying precisely the kinds of ingredients we are seeking to avoid.
Despite his reputation as the mainstream representation of the outcast, Tim Burton is no stranger to box office records. This weekend was another trip to the record books as Alice in Wonderland propelled to $116.3 million.
Make no mistake, Alice in Wonderland is easily Tim Burton's worst film since Planet of the Apes, and its failures bring into question just what kind of filmmaker he wants to be in the next phase of his career.
If you have some extra cash to throw down the rabbit hole, we love Sue Wong's Alice-inspired pink and black lace cocktail dress - but we still can't get past spending almost $400 on a Disney-themed frock.
