Helena Bonham Carter is a personal favorite and certainly a favorite of many others, especially when starring in a movie involving her former partner, Tim Burton.
Helena Bonham Carter was amazing in Alice in Wonderland, and it seems she will be even greater in Alice Through the Looking Glass.
While the trailer showcases the movie's wide, wide assortment of great talents like the recently deceased Alan Rickman, Johnny Depp, Mia Wasikowska, and even Sacha Baron Cohen, Helena Bonham Carter steals it in the end.
The trailer is a Burton-style dream spectacle and as amazing as is expected.
But, at the end Helena Bonham Carter is gifted a musical executioner trinket from Baron Cohen's character, and well, it's just great.
I don't agree to do a film because I think it's going to be a success. I do it because I think I'm going to learn something from the character. — Helena Bonham Carter ~ So this is an old edit I was reluctant to post. I tried to mix things from the book Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard with the actual Red Queen. It didn't really work but I'll leave it there anyway.:) ~ Picture from the movie Alice in Wonderland directed by Tim Burton, in the character of The Red Queen.

It's a good thing Helena Bonham Carter and her ex, Tim Burton, have stayed on good terms!
Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter split up a little over a year ago and the two of them have remained good friends and co-parents to their children, Billy and Nell.
Helena Bonham Carter said of her relationship after the split, "I could write a thesis on what's happened and it is all-absorbing when a relationship breaks down, but I think we're coming through it."
She added, "I think we'll have something very precious still."
Tim said : You've got to play the Red Queen because I drew you. It's like : Really is that me? He goes : Of course that's you, and you've got to play her. Then, of course I've got to play the Red Queen for Tim. — Helena Bonham Carter ~ Fact : Alice, the heroine, is not a blonde as illustrated. The original Alice was a brunette. ~ Pictures from the movie Alice in Wonderland directed by Tim Burton, in the character of The Red Queen.

Later, as their 13-year relationship morphed into friendship, she said, "Our relationship was always somewhat special, and I think it'll always remain special. We did find each other. And really, the mark of a successful relationship shouldn't be whether you're there forever after. Sometimes you're not meant to be forever together."
I simply cannot wait to see Helena Bonham Carter as the Queen of Hearts again. Can you?
