8. "Alice in Wonderland"
Lowdown: A fantastical reinterpretation of Lewis Carroll's classic children's tale "Alice in Wonderland" featuring the often popular partnership of Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. Perhaps you've heard of them?
Director: Tim Burton
Stars: Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska, Crispin Glover, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, Alan Rickman, Matt Lucas, Timothy Spall, Christopher Lee
Why: It's been said many times before, but this really should be the project where Burton's visionary eye takes his material to another level. Can he surprise his critics who now yawn at every "predictably" amazing new image on screen? We're betting he can.
Opens: March 5
