Unfortunately, Guillermo Del Toro’s original Gothic romance Crimson Peak didn’t translate to box office gold, netting thirty one million at the domestic box office (it was budgeted at fifty-five million) and receiving criticism for a basic narrative failing to live up to the promise of inventive visuals. Still, one can appreciate Universal’s gambling on Del Toro’s vision and hope the property is considered lucrative enough to continue supporting unique visions from auteurs. Featuring a talented cast (despite the questionable casting of Jessica Chastain), Del Toro’s period suspense thriller collapses under close inspection, but is worth a glance as a piece of glossy strangeness.
Borrowing mercilessly from yellowed clichés of romantically inclined gothic literature, screenwriters Del Toro and Matthew Robins (whose last collaboration was the 1997 mutant insect thriller Mimic) plunder Edgar Allan Poe templates infused with the emotional melodrama oozing eternally from the pages of the »

Quite the wonder child of fantasy and horror, Guillermo del Toro has made near masterpieces in the Spanish language but not fared as well breaking through the Hollywood blockbuster barrier. His top-grossing American film might be Blade II. His equally talented compatriot Alfonso Cuarón has »

"You've been gone too long, Alice," declares the Blue Caterpillar in an ominous voice-over during the fifth short (but sweet) teaser for the upcoming Alice Through the Looking Glass. Mia Wasikowska is returning as the titular Alice in the sequel to 2010's Alice in Wonderland, and we see her climb through a mirror in this new look. More teasers have been unveiled over the past few months, and although the movie isn't out until May 27, we can expect to see lots more footage of costars Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, and Helena Bonham Carter before then. For now, enjoy these! The fifth teaser: It's about Time. See Alice Through the Looking Glass in theatres May 27. »

On Mubi Off is a bi-weekly column exploring two films: one currently available on Mubi in the United States, and the other screening offsite (in theaters, on VOD, Blu-ray/DVD, etc).On MUBIIn a Glass Cage (Agustí Villaronga, 1986)A number of directors have put audiences in the head of a murderer using a subjective point of view shot—Michael Powell, John Carpenter, Dario Argento, to name but a very few. The opening sequence of Agustí Villaronga's 1986 feature film debut, In a Glass Cage, further perverts that sense of empathetic identification by using subjective Pov to put us in the mind of a killer in the making. We don't know who this germinal cut-throat is at first, only that he or she is bearing witness to a truly unspeakable horror: a middle-aged man lasciviously caressing, then beating to death, a naked, bloodied and helpless adolescent boy. Though the actions playing »

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. »

Narrated by the dearly departed Alan Rickman (reprising his role as Absolem the Caterpillar), a new t.v. spot has come our way, cleverly highlighting the importance time (and time travel) plays in Alice’s (Mia Wasikowska ) latest adventure in Wonderland. While James Bobin (The Muppets) is taking the reins from Tim Burton, as you can see our second trip to the world created by Lewis Carroll will just just as stunning. Check it out below.

Last month, we reported the unfortunate news that screen legend Alan Rickman had passed away at the age of 69, after battling cancer. While we won't get to see him on screen, the beloved actor's final performance is yet to come, returning to voice Absolem, the Blue Caterpillar in this summer's Alice in Wonderland sequel Alice Through the Looking Glass, hitting theaters May 27. Today, the Disney Twitter feed debuted a new TV spot which features this beloved actor's voice, along with plenty of new footage.
Last week, we reported that Disney will have a huge presence at this weekend's Super Bowl, with the studio expected to promote a number of their upcoming movies during the big game. While no specific titles were mentioned, Alice Through the Looking Glass could certainly be one of them, especially considering that a few months have passed since the first trailer was released.

"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. I dig the shot of all the hanging clocks/watches. Fire this up. Here's the Super Bowl TV spot for James Bobin's Alice Through the Looking Glass, »
