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 Dragon, The 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 »
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 »

It took director Shane Carruth nine years to make a follow-up to 2004’s time travel instant-classic Primer. Thankfully, 2013’s Upstream Color was a remarkable sophomore effort, a science fiction tinged drama that was as emotionally moving as his debut feature was mind-bending. Even more thankfully, we won’t have to wait nearly a decade for this third movie. His new movie is on the way and its already assembled a jaw-dropping ensemble.
We already knew that The Modern Ocean would be Carruth’s first step into big-budget filmmaking, but no one saw this cast coming. The man who once worked miracles with a couple thousand bucks is now commanding a cast that includes Anne Hathaway, Keanu Reeves, Daniel Radcliffe, Chloe Grace Moretz, Tom Holland, Asa Butterfield and Jeff Goldblum. More details on the Modern Ocean cast can be found after the jump.

Production is underway right now on Colossal, the next film from Spanish director Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes, Open Windows, Extraterrestrial).

And now one more cast member has just been added.
The Guest star Dan Stevens has taken one of the male leads in the film that has a very strange premise that seems to somehow blend romance and monster movies. Find out more about Dan Stevens joining Colossal and just what the movie is about after the jump. Read More »

It’s becoming increasingly common for filmmakers and actors to jump between TV and film — even Matthew McConaughey and Scarlett Johansson are doing it these days. And yet TV hasn’t quite shed its reputation as film’s less glamorous sibling.
Case in point: It’s still kind of surprising to hear Anne Hathaway, a young Oscar winner at the height of her career, is headed to the small screen. She’ll star in The Ambassador’s Wife, a limited series based on the novel by Jennifer Steil. Get details on the Anne Hathaway TV project after the jump. Read More »
