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 sequel, Alice Through the Looking Glass. James Bobin (The Muppets) took over the reins, and we’ll what he’s come up with this summer.
Below, watch a Alice Through the Looking Glass TV spot.

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 »
Daylight savings time just ended here in the United States, and hopefully you remembered to set your clocks back an hour and didn’t miss out on an extra hour of sleep. Disney certainly didn’t forget to take advantage of this day to promote their forthcoming sequel, Alice Through the Looking Glass with a small bit of teaser footage, which means a trailer should be coming very soon.

We’re a week and a half away from the opening of Guillermo del Toro‘s Crimson Peak. The buzz is strong for the director’s horror-romance, but it’s still a financial gamble. Del Toro’s film is an original, R-rated period piece, which are never a sure thing at the box-office. Then again, there’s nothing else quite like Crimson Peak coming out anytime soon, so maybe that’ll be enough to draw general audiences in. It’s a very good, beautifully directed movie — and a Crimson Peak clip, a handful of features and TV spots highlight the beauty of del Toro’s latest. Check them out after the jump.

Crimson Peak, the new film from Guillermo del Toro, is the writer/director’s take on a gothic haunted house movie, with Tom Hiddleston and Jessica Chastain as sibling residents of an old mansion who welcome Hiddleston’s bride, played by Mia Wasikowska, into their midst.
Actually, “welcome” isn’t the word to use at all, as this new Crimson Peak clip shows. While the first couple trailers for the film have been all atmosphere and effects, this one is mostly drama, as Chastain thoroughly denies any warm welcome to her brother’s new bride. Read More »
Alice Through the Looking Glass acts as both sequel and prequel to Tim Burton’s 2010 film, with James Bobin jumping in as director from a script written by Linda Woolverton. (Burton is still on as producer.) While story details have been thin so far, today’s D23 live-action panel revealed that the big tipping point is a problem with the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), which leads Alice (Mia Wasikowska) on a journey through time, aided by Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen), “a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock.” Read More »
