2010: The Year Ahead

Wear Me: Tom of Wonderland
Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland adaptation had the honor of being 2009's most buzzed-about movie that didn't actually come out in 2009. Such is the power of Disney and Depp. But the most intriguing news was that the Mouse House had enlisted sometime punk provocateur Tom Binns to create a jewelry line inspired by the children's tale. (Spike Jonze's Where the Wild Things Are—which boasted its own jewelry collection by Pamela Love and hairy monster suits at Opening Ceremony—appears to have set a precedent.) Somehow, we expect Binns' broken-teacup necklace ($1,000 to $1,500) will be more of a hit among the Jane Hotel crowd than the See Jane Run set. The other film we hope the Cinema Society secures for a screening: rock-'n'-roll photographer (and Control director) Anton Corbijn's The American, a spy thriller starring old smoothy pants himself, George Clooney.

Alice in Wonderland opens in theaters March 5; The American is expected in theaters September 1.
