Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland' trailer released

Between the down-the-rabbit-hole sequence that looks almost exactly like the 1951 cartoon, the Tweedledum and Tweedledee who look like Pugsley Addams' unsuccessfully aborted twin brothers, Helena Bonham Carter's hydrocephalic Queen of Hearts, and what's pretty obviously an expanded role for Johnny Depp's Pennywise the Clown Mad Hatter, I'd say the money's pretty even as to whether this will be a harmless but completely unnecessary remake a la Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory or an abomination so offensive it causes zombie Lewis Carroll to rise from the depths of Pedophile Hell and seek horrible vengeance on Disney executives. On second thought, why isn't Burton just making a film about that?
