Trailer Time: Alice Through the Looking Glass IMAX Trailer *Sans the Tim Burton Intro*

Before my screening of Captain America: Civil War, I was treated to an IMAX 3D rendering of Tim Burton talking for a good minute about the above trailer.  This means for an entire minute I was looking at Tim Burton in the highest possible resolution, jutting from my screen like an electrified madman.  I, being the considerate soul that I am, found a cut of the trailer that excised the Burton and just gave you a look at Disney’s NEXT release (they’re printing them like commemorative coins this year) Alice Through the Looking Glass.

I’ve gone on ad nauseum about my feelings regarding the first film, and Tim Burton is not directing this outing, James Bobit (The Muppets) is.  They’re not following the plot of the second Carroll novel, since they sort of smushed the two books together in the first film.  So, while I admit this does look fantastic, I’m not sure that it can overcome the fact that Johnny Depp is in it and is beginning to look increasingly self-aware of his alien nature.  Regardless, it opens opposite X-Men: Apocalypse and the sure-to-be still potent juggernaut of Civil War.  This may be one Disney film that doesn’t make a billion dollars.  That’s ok.  Finding Dory comes out three weeks later. DISNEYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!

Trailer Time: Alice Through the Looking Glass Trailer #2 (2016) *And Then This Is Still Being Made*

I really liked about 85% of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland and I went into the theater waiting for Johnny Depp to run off the rails and he and Burton to perform their mad mutual career destruction act.  I had quite forgotten all of that and was prepared to give it a good review when the FUTTERWACKING showed up and I don’t think I’ve seen something tank what could have been a good movie so badly at the end in my life.  So naturally there’s a sequel just around the corner.

From the write up below from Coming Soon, it doesn’t appear that this will in any way be following the plot of Lewis Carroll’s book. Also Sascha Baron Cohen is involved.  I want to be wrong, and there are some fantastic effects in the trailer, but I futterwackin’ won’t be.  Just wait.

Trailer Time: Crimson Peak Trailer #2 (2015) *Del Toro Gets Back to His Roots*

I don’t often enjoy being scared at the movies, but when I do….I watch Guillermo del Toro.  Stay frightented, my friends.

In the aftermath of a family tragedy, an aspiring author is torn between love for her childhood friend and the temptation of a mysterious outsider. Trying to escape the ghosts of her past, she is swept away to a house that breathes, bleeds… and remembers.

When her heart is stolen by a seductive stranger, she is swept away to a house atop a mountain of blood-red clay: a place filled with secrets that will haunt her forever. Between desire and darkness, between mystery and madness, lies the truth behind Crimson Peak.
Crimson Peak, Guillermo Del Toro

Trailer Time: Crimson Peak (2015) *Del Toro Gets Back to His Roots*

Here’s one I can’t wait for: Guillermo del Toro returning to horror.  As a genre, I kind of despise horror, but del Toro transcends simple genre pigeon-holing and I’ve been a huge fan since my wife and I got to meet him at a showing of Pan’s Labyrinth.  Well, to be fair, he met about 300 of us at once, but it makes for a better telling when I exclude 298 of them.

If you haven’t seen del Toro’s early films Cronos and The Devil’s Backbone, I would strongly recommend them.  I can’t wait to see what he does with this fantastic cast and this chilling premise.  Crimson Peak opens October 16, 2015.
