After making her producing debut with this year's Song One, Anne Hathaway has signed on to star in and produce the sci-fi comedy The Shower. The project isn't set up at a studio quite yet, with The Wrap reporting that producers first plan on finding a director and other stars before taking it out to studios. The Shower was written by Jac Schaeffer, which landed on The Blacklist as one of the industry's most well-regarded un-produced screenplays.
The Shower starts at a baby shower, where guests witness a meteor shower. The male guests all start transforming into aliens, as the women are forced to fight for their own survival, and save the world as well. No details were given for the role that Anne Hathaway will take on, and it isn't known how many supporting roles need to be filled.
This modern retelling definitely looks like a 2015 blockbuster but it peddles some uncomfortably old-fashioned values
Disney traditionalists are sure to find comfort in Kenneth Branagh’s live-action Cinderella as it glides on to home video this week, because unlike the majority of recent efforts to revive the studio’s flagship fairytales, this new spin on the glass-slippered classic makes few concessions to contemporary life. Indeed, the film plays out almost exactly as Walt himself might have envisioned, eschewing the metatextual postmodernism of last year’s Sleeping Beauty reboot Maleficent and the general batshittery of Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland.
Still, tradition has a short memory, so while the most influential version of the Cinderella story is probably the 1697 text by Charles Perrault, this new telling owes more to Disney’s own 1950 animated adaptation. Handily, this allows the studio to credit the story both to Perrault and “Disney’s Cinderella »

A petition for American McGee to return to Alice has reached over 15 thousand signatures!
A single person has started a petition to tell EA to let American McGee continue his Alice adventures. You can sign the petition yourself and check out the number climbing higher on the petition page. At the time of writing this the petition was sitting at 15,500 signatures.
The petition has picked up so much traction that even American McGee has posted about it on Twitter, stating -
"Doubt this will change any minds at EA, but what the hell," tweets McGee, "sign the petition for a new Alice game!"
We have obviously been in support of this happening for some time now. We wrote great review of Alice: Madness Returns back when we were another website, and of course rumors of a 3rd Alice title came about and we voiced our support back then too.
For those that don't know, »

The Fiction #3
Written by Curt Pires
Illustrated by David Rubin
Colours by Michael Garland
Letters by Colin Bell
Published by Boom! Studios
The Fiction #3 opens with a melancholic moment in which Kassie is shown floating within an unknown dark space, speckled with a substance that reminds her of stars. Her monologue is reminiscent of when one looked into the sky as a kid, bewildered at how large the world felt with the multiple, barely visible sparkling lights. Kassie begins to diminish in size, reminded of a sky whose constellations merged memory and truth to try and tell us something; Curt Pires’ words poignantly capturing her state of mind. As Kassie has entered adulthood, she has realized her diminished role in the world around her and how small that makes her feel. With her childhood literally disappearing through her missing friend Tsang and separation of Max as shown in the last issue, »

Tim Burton will have the honour of turning on this year's Blackpool Illuminations.
The Hollywood movie director, who has been a long-time fan of the seaside town, will turn on the light display after a concert next month, reports BBC News.

Last week, an extremely cautious Winona Ryder confirmed on Late Night With Seth Myers that a sequel to Tim Burton's beloved 1988 haunted house comedy Beetlejuice was finally in the works. Ryder will be reprising her role as Lydia Deetz, with Burton back behind the megaphone and Michael Keaton, fresh from a career-resurrecting turn in Birdman (2014), again starring as 'the ghost with the most'.
Ryder's announcement was met with the inevitable woops and cheers from Myers' studio audience, but fans of Burton's breakthrough feature will be seeking reassurances that the forthcoming follow-up will remain true to the spirit of its predecessor.
For those who've never seen it, Beetlejuice tells the story of Adam and Barbara Maitland (Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis), a happily married couple living »

In truth, in spite of the fact that it grossed over $1bn at the box office worldwide, we don't know very many people who liked Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland movie that much. It starred Mia Wasikowska in the title role, although the Mad Hatter had a beefed up part too, courtesy of the casting of Johnny Depp.
Tim Burton isn't back for the follow-up, Alice Through The Looking Glass, however. Instead, The Muppets and Muppets Most Wanted helmer James Bobin has stepped into his shoes. A first trailer for Alice Through The Looking Glass was shown over the weekend at Disney's D23 event too, although it's not been released online yet. What we do have, though, are the first two teaser posters from the movie.
Which are here...
Alice Through The Looking Glass is scheduled »
It.s been more than five years since Tim Burton.s Alice in Wonderland took the global box office by storm, ultimately ranking as one of the few movies to make more than a billion dollars worldwide. It was inevitable that a sequel would be made, which is why Alice Through The Looking Glass is coming out next year, but only now do we know what the film is going to actually be about. Yesterday, Disney hosted its huge live-action presentation as part of the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, and it was during Alice Through The Looking Glass. part of the show that the plot of the movie was revealed.

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 »
