Trailer of Burton's 'Alice' (briefly) hits the Web. Wonderment ensues.
If you've got an Internet connection, you probably already heard the news: Tim Burton, the brain behind "Beetlejuice," "Sleepy Hollow" and a dozen other fantastical flicks, has directed a live-action adaption of Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland."
Today, months before the movie's 2010 release date, an early trailer was passed from blog to blog, gathering dropped jaws in its wake.
But by mid-afternoon, the trailer was pulled from YouTube and other video sharing sites, apparently on the request of the producers of "Alice in Wonderland." What gives? According to at least one news site, the problem lies with IGN.com, which released the trailer a day ahead of schedule. Eventually, IGN.com removed the video from its site; the trailer then migrated to TrailerAddict.com.
