Johnny Depp took a break from filming The Tourist in Venice, Italy Monday to promote the Disney 3D adventure Alice in Wonderland in Tokyo and has all the pictures.

Johnny Depp was joined by Tim Burton, who has been Johnny's collaborator in seven films.

"For me to play the Hatter wasn't a great stretch by any means," Depp said at a press conference, laughing. "In a sense, I think the character was kind of already blooming inside, ready to show its face."

Johnny is one of a handful of A-list stars who always takes time out to sign autographs and shake hands with his fans. The Sexiest Man Alive is extremely popular in Japan. He was greeted by a massive crowd as he arrived at the Narita International Airport in Narita, Japan.

But  Japanese fans still have to wait to see the blockbuster film, because it doesn't open there until April 17. 

In the meantime, the film dominated  the box office in the U.S.  for the third week in a row.  Over the weekend,  it took in $34.5 million to remain the No. 1; so far it's brought in $265.7 million.
