Today we have a video featuring highlights from the panel presentation itself, along with a video interview with star Mia Wasikowska, who reprises her title role from 2010's blockbuster Alice in Wonderland.
Disney’s 2010 live-action take on Alice In Wonderland might not have generated the same level of joy as other properties, but it certainly brought in the coins, passing a billion dollars at the box office. Disney showed off some of the sequel (Alice Through The Looking Glass) at D23 this weekend, including a first look at Sacha Baron Cohen as a new character, a creature of shifting morality called Time. In a somewhat muted presentation that only included Alice herself, Mia Wasikowska, the sequel’s secrets were peeled back slightly with the revelation that Linda Woolverton’s script finds the leaping through different time periods and meeting the various “Underland” characters at younger stages in their lives, including the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) and the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp). Baron Cohen’s Time is depicted as an Ott sort (from Sacha? Surely not!) with a heavy accent and a »

Alice Through the Looking Glass
- Garth Franklin
Alice In Wonderland made over a billion dollars for Disney, despite being heartless, awful, synthetic, and based around a needless prophecy storyline. So a sequel, Alice Through The Looking Glass, was inevitable, and although Tim Burton won’t be returning, the role of director has fallen to British director James Bobin, known for Muppets Most Wanted and his work with Ali G.
Almost the entire original cast, both live-action and animated voice artists, return, so we’ll certainly be rewarded with some form of consistency. However, we can only hope that the story has a little more substance to chew on. As the original was more of a sequel to the original tale, there’s no way of telling what the story will be. But with the return of Helena Bonham Carter‘s Red Queen, perhaps revenge is on the cards.

With its May 27, 2016 release date looming ever closer, what better time than Disney's D23 Expo to get the promotional campaign kickingc There hasn't been a still, clip or trailer released for the new movie yet, but the Mouse House officially unveiled the first posters for the new movie today. Mia Wasikowska and Johnny Depp return to play Alice and the Mad Hatter, respectively, and so do Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, Michael Sheen as the voice of the White Rabbit and Alan Rickman as the voice of the Blue Caterpillar. The posters, featuring Alice and the Hatter, hobbling their way through clock gears-filled waters, doesn't reveal anything regarding the plot or what we should expect. »

While Johnny Depp is swaggering into the fall festival and awards season in "Black Mass," let's make one thing clear: it's the blockbusters that keep the mortgage paid on his private island and the scarves fully stocked in his wardrobe.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux threw a lavish bash at their Bel Air, CA, mansion on Wednesday, complete with a wooden stage and seating for 74 guests. While some speculated it was a sweet surprise party for Justin, who turns 44 on Monday, it was actually the couple's long-awaited wedding! Jen and Justin, who got engaged in 2012 after he popped the question on his birthday, threw the lavish affair in their backyard, and guests included Lisa Kudrow, Chelsea Handler, Ellen DeGeneres, and Howard Stern. But there was one guest who stood out the most: a pastor. According to photos posted on TMZ, the pastor made his way inside carrying a Bible as party staffers were seen arriving with a large cake topped with two puppet characters.

If nothing else, “Control” makes for a very focused episode of Lucky Louie. In a series crammed full of B plots and skits that feel forced in because Louis C.K. didn’t know where to put them (i.e. the “Why” sketch from the cold open in “Pilot”), it’s refreshing to see an episode which clearly develops a single idea. Whereas other half-hours have felt trapped between half-baked gags, there’s something enjoyable about seeing an episode which devotes its running time to exploring a specific concept and how it affects various members of the ensemble.

The 89-year-old monarch develops the virus in the movie – which is due out in March 2016 – when she is splattered with blood by a child who is carrying HIV.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “Nothing should surprise you with Sacha’s comedy.
“But the scene with the Queen is bleak. It’s more gruesome than anything he has done before.
“No decision has been made on whether it will make the final cut, but if it does it will inevitably cause a lot of outrage.”
This comes shortly after it was revealed Sacha, 43, has managed to anger residents of Grimsby because of his unflattering portrayal of the sea port.

As the shark continues to circle her, she attempts to find a way back before dying from her injuries.
