The These Two People Should NOT Be Seen Together Post.

Last night the Royal/World Premiere of Tim Burton's take on Alice In Wonderland was held at the Odeon in Leicester Square (now that the threatened boycott is no more). All the stars were there along with a lot of the behind-the-scenes folks - I wasn't there, though.

But the great Danny Elfman was there, and of all the pictures StitchKingdom put up of the night's festivities, he only appears in one. Weirdly, it's one which he shares with Prince Charles and... Avril Lavigne. This one. (The musically-challenged but intensely bangable Avril chips in with a ditty over the closing credits, one of the few songs on the Almost Alice CD that's actually in the film - if not the only one. Interestingly, the fine-assed chanteuse is absent from the Elfman score album.) The look on his face suggests he's fully aware he's been sighted standing next to Avril Lavigne and probably isn't too happy about it. Or is it just wishful thinking on my part?

I refuse to believe Burton had anything to do with Avril's involvement (I blame commercial pressures, and people who forgot about Avril's horrible contribution to Eragon). Lots more pics here.
