Trivia

At the U.S. box office, it earned less in its opening weekend than what Alice in Wonderland (2010) made on its opening day. The opening gross was 77% less than its predecessor. The main reason for the disappointing box office results was thought to be Johnny Depp's highly toxic divorce from Amber Heard, which dominated the news at the time. See more »

Goofs

As a child the Mad Hatter has his adult teeth but no gap between them. He also has no lisp. As an adult, the Mad Hatter has both a gap between his front teeth and a slight lisp. However, even in humans such changes can sometimes occur (e.g. due to injury), let alone in a weird magical being like the Hatter. See more »

Crazy Credits

Despite that the opening credits for theatrical Disney films has been changed from "Walt Disney Pictures" to just "Disney" since 2011, the opening credit for this movie says "Walt Disney Pictures Presents" like the opening credits for ''Tomorrowland" (2015) saying the same thing and the end credits of "The Lone Ranger" (2013) saying "Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films Presents".

Mediocre story with great visual effects
13 December 2016 | by Venom_81See all my reviews

Tim Burton refused to direct this movie..and there is a reason..simply the script is terrible. There is no real and solid story behind this movie if not a marketing operation. The direction works well, nothing special but nothing you can complain about, also the rhythm and the storytelling works good, the problem is the script. The movie is visually stunning , probably visual effects are the only reason to watch this movie. Jhonny Deep is probably on his worst interpretation, he isn't able to transmit anything not even the madness of his character. Mia Wasikovska is the only one who truly believe in the project and tries to produce a decent interpretation. Sacha Baron Coen is funny on his character but maybe he could add more personality in his interpretation. As I already said you can watch this movie just for the amazing visual effects..but without a decent story isn't so entertaining
