Alice Through the Looking Glass

It’s been over six years since our last trip to Underland. In 2010, director Tim Burton reimagined Lewis Carroll‘s classic story with his box office hit, which made over a billion dollars worldwide. Burton decided not to return for the upcoming sequel, Alice Through the Looking Glass. Instead, director James Bobin (The Muppets Movie) has stepped in to show a new side of both Alice and Underland.

We were recently invited to see footage from the sequel, in addition to participating in roundtable interviews with the filmmakers. Check out our Alice Through the Looking Glass preview below, and watch the latest trailer, below.

Alice Through the Looking Glass spot

This weekend marked the start of Daylight Savings Time in the U.S., and that means the past 36 or so hours have been rough for a lot of folks. At some point in the wee hours of Sunday morning, an hour simply vanished into thin air, leaving us with one less hour to sleep, or work, or spend time with our families, or binge-watch House of Cards, or whatever else we’d normally do with that time.

Now a new Alice Through the Looking Glass spot wonders where that time went, and suggests Sacha Baron Cohen, as the embodiment of Time itself, might have had something to do with its disappearance. Check out the newest footage from the James Bobin-directed fantasy adventure below.  Read More »

Alice Through the Looking Glass TV Spot

Last night, ABC aired The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60. The two-hour special was a star-studded celebration of Disney’s storied past, from Mickey Mouse to Beauty and the Beast to Star Wars: The Force Awakens… but the studio also took the chance to look forward at some of its upcoming offerings. In addition to new concept art for Star Wars Land, the studio also served up new footage from its three live-action fairy tales due out this year: Pete’s DragonThe Jungle Book, and Alice Through the Looking Glass.

Mia Wasikowska returns for that last one as Alice, who get caught up in a race against Time — literally, since Time turns out to be a man played by Sacha Baron Cohen. The Alice in Wonderland sequel also features the returns of Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, and the voice of Alan Rickman as the Blue Caterpillar, in what has turned out to be his final film. Watch the latest Alice Through the Looking Glass TV spot below.  Read More »

Which Movies Will Have Ads at the Super Bowl?

THE JUNGLE BOOK

The Super Bowl has to be the only television broadcast of the year where the ads are almost as eagerly hyped as the event itself. Even those who don’t know a touchdown from a tackle often tune in for the commercials, and with good reason: companies spend millions just staking out ad space during the game, and millions more to produce some of the slickest, funniest, weirdest, and generally most attention-grabby spots you’ll see all year.

That includes the major movie studios, which annually seize the event to pitch their biggest pictures to millions and millions of viewers. So which movie Super Bowl commercials can we expect to see this Sunday? Find out after the jump.

UPDATE: Since we first published this story, both Captain America: Civil War and Eddie the Eagle have teased Super Bowl spots. Read More »

Alice Through the Looking Glass trailer

At last year’s San Diego Comic Con, I was shocked by the amount of people dressed up as Johnny Depp‘s loud and frightening take on the Mad Hatter. I’m always surprised by how much some people love the character, but then again, Tim Burton‘s adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s book made over a billion dollars at the box office, so audiences clearly have a fondness for this world.

Burton didn’t return to direct the sequelAlice Through the Looking GlassJames Bobin (The Muppets) took over the reins, and we’ll what he’s come up with this summer.

Alice Through the Looking Glass

Just last week, the first teaser trailer for Alice Through the Looking Glass arrived, the sequel to Tim Burton’s 2010 adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. It’s quite an early tease for the film that won’t arrive until next summer, and now a batch of posters featuring some of the prominent Wonderland characters and one new face have surfaced.

Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter all get their own posters, reprising their characters from the first film. In addition, Sacha Baron Cohen, who plays a part-human, part-clock manifestation of Time gets his own poster as well, with all of the character surrounded by trippy, melting clocks. Read More »

At this point Disney has more live-action fairy tales in various stages of development than we can count, but the movie that kicked off that whole craze to begin with was 2010’s Alice in Wonderland. The Tim Burton-directed adventure racked up more than $1 billion worldwide, making a sequel more or less inevitable, and now that sequel is almost here.

James Bobin (The Muppets) replaces Burton in the director’s chair this time around, but the original cast is back including Mia Wasikowska as Alice, Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, and Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen. There are some new characters, too, including Rhys Ifans as the Mad Hatter’s dad and Sacha Baron Cohen as Time himself. Watch the Alice Through the Looking Glass trailer after the jump. Read More »
