The Alice Through The Looking Glass Super Bowl trailer has come online days before the sporting event hits. The 50th Super Bowl will take place this Sunday in San Francisco, California where the Denver Broncos will meet the Carolina Panthers. The Super Bowl is usually used as a launch pad for movie trailers with the studios queuing up to throw millions of dollars at the screen to promote their biggest upcoming films.
The Alice Through The Looking Glass Super Bowl trailer is the first we’ve seen this year, and unusually has been delivered days ahead of the event. The 30-second promo is introduced by none other than the late, great Alan Rickman who narrates the first part as Absolem, the Blue Caterpillar, in what will be his final motion picture role. »

"You've been gone too long, Alice. There are matters which cannot be neglected. Hurry...!" Disney has debuted their very vibrant TV spot for Alice Through the Looking Glass that will be airing during the Super Bowl this weekend. This sequel to Disney's live-action Alice in Wonderland is directed by "Flight of the Conchords" veteran James Bobin, and the entire cast from the original returns. They even use the voice of the late Alan Rickman, who plays the Blue Caterpillar, which is a bit manipulative considering he just passed away a few weeks ago. Mia Wasikowska is back as Alice, along with Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Sacha Baron Cohen as Time, Michael Sheen voicing the White Rabbit, and Stephen Fry as the Cheshire Cat.

“Love, Nina” explores 1980s London through the eyes of a young woman. “It’s a subtle look back at a society clinging doggedly to its traditional class divisions,” the fest said. Faye Marsay and Helena Bonham Carter star.

This process has become so popular that there are currently more of these live action fairytales in production than Marvel Studios, DC Entertainment or Star Wars movies. That’s a lot of films. (A whopping 21 by our count.)
Although it wadsn’t the first movie of this kind, Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland – and its worldwide gross of over a billion dollars – can surely take the credit for kick-starting this trend. Here are all the in-development movies trying to repeat its success, »
