O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! Fans of Tim Burton‘s 2010 film Alice in Wonderland should be chortling in their joy at all the news coming about the sequel, Alice Through the Looking Glass. Based off of Lewis Carroll‘s Through the Looking-Glass, which was itself a sequel to his earlier Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Alice Through the Looking Glass promises to deliver even more madcap antics and zany characters than its predecessor. Returning for more adventures in Wonderland are Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, and Alan Rickman, in what would prove to be his final role. Watch now below as Walt Disney Pictures has just released a new TV spot for the film!

Warner Brothers has released a new trailer for Zack Snyder‘s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice that includes new footage and a look at Joe Chill, the man who killed Bruce Wayne’s parents. There are a couple other images in this new trailer that pose a few questions about the film and how those fit into its story line. Let’s take a look and discuss it. (more…)

AliceThroughTheLookingGlass2

The star-studded sequel to Tim Burton‘s Alice in Wonderland, Alice Through The Looking Glass has released its first full trailer and it is as visually beautiful as one would expect from a Tim Burton production. Director James Bobin certainly has maintained that Burton style of madness in set design.  Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, and Helena Bonham Carter are back to reprise their roles with the addition of Sacha Baron Cohen as the movie’s more sinister character of Underland.

For fans that wonder how Tim Burton’s creepy yet whimsical aesthetic would go over in a superhero movie, they need go no further than watching 1989’s Batman and its subsequent Batman Returns. But how would it look if he put his own macabre spin on another DC bigwig: Superman? We almost got a chance to see. Superman Lives was in development in the late 1990’s, with Kevin Smith’s initial script and Burton set to direct, with a very interesting choice in leading men: Nicolas Cage. (more…)

While I file the idea of the infamous overactor and perpetually creepy Nicolas Cage playing Superman in a Tim Burton film under the apocalypse-worthy failures bin, this documentary is high on my must-watch list. If nothing else, it’ll surely be hilarious to see Mr. Cage, who is a noted Superman fanatic, overact his way into a ridiculous, rubbery Supersuit. Luckily for all of us, Jon Schnepp endeavored to document the project’s ups and downs in the new documentary The Death of Superman Lives. Luckier still, we got our grubby little hands on the first ten minutes of footage to share with all of you fine folks.  (more…)

For the record, Christopher Lee was a tall guy. At an imposing 6’5″ frame and with a hypnotically basso voice (and naturally accented as British), this was a man born to make horror movies. That was Lee’s bread and butter for much of his career, but the actor will be fondly remembered for so much more than playing Dracula for years and years. As you may have noticed, we are now talking about Christopher Lee in the past tense because he passed away from respiratory problems and heart failure while hospitalized Sunday (the delay was so that his family would not find out through the news_. For movie geeks the world over, Lee defined intimidation and regality in equal measure, and continued to be very much in demand and working well into his 93rd year. But to quote Edwin Stanton when he remarked on the massing of another tall man, Abraham Lincoln, now he belongs to the ages. (more…)

Batman_Returns_Danny_Devito_penguins

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia returned to television last week for its tenth season and star Danny Devito was making the publicity rounds at the Television Critics Association Winter Tour to promote the show. Access Hollywood attended and asked Devito the question a lot of us were wondering about, “What’s he think of the new Penguin (Robin Taylor) on Gotham?” (more…)

Just when you thought you had banished all thoughts of Tim Burton‘s 2001 Planet of the Apes reboot from your nerdy mind and gotten rid of that metallic after taste that lingered for weeks in your mouth after the first, and only time you saw the movie, this had to happen and dredge it all up again. Those anger management consoling sessions aren’t cheap dammit. The ever so talented Tim Roth (Reservoir Dogs, Rob Roy, and regrettably Planet of the Apes) was recently asked to explain that ever so confusing Burton POTA ending. (more…)
