It’s been two years since we heard Ryan Reynolds was producing a new adaptation of the classic murder mystery board game Clue from Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Since then, Jason Bateman boarded the project as director, but unfortunately, his commitment to the Netflix series Ozark will keep him from following through. Now the project set up at the newly branded 20th Century Studios has brought on a new filmmaker from Disney’s neck of the woods: The Muppets director James Bobin. Read More »

Of all the information that came out of the infamous Sony hack a couple years ago, one of the most intriguing and ridiculous things we found out was Sony was tossing around the possibility of crossing over the 21 Jump Street franchise with Men in Black. After we let that thought simmer for a while, that actually sounded like a pretty brilliant idea. Since then, the film has been dubbed MiB 23 and recruited The Muppets director James Bobin to be at the helm. But apparently, the project is still far from a sure thing according to Jonah Hill.

UPDATE: Sony announced at CinemaCon that the title of the Jump Street / Men in Black crossover will be MIB 23.
Our original story from March 4, 2016 follows.
One of the biggest surprises to come out of the 2014 Sony hack (at least for our purposes) was the news that the studio was considering merging two of its franchises, 21 Jump Street and Men in Black. It seemed like a wild idea at the time, but now it’s actually happening. James Bobin (The Muppets, Alice Through the Looking Glass) is in early talks to helm the movie, which will bring back 21 Jump Street‘s Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. Read More »
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.

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 »

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 »
