Disney has just released a new trailer for its upcoming film "Alice Through the Looking Glass," the long-awaited sequel to 2010's "Alice in Wonderland."
The new trailer explores how Alice (Mia Wasikowska) finds herself back in the trippy and whimsical fictional world dreamed up by acclaimed author Lewis Carroll. In it, viewers find Alice locked up in a hospital after having been diagnosed by a doctor (Andrew Scott of "Sherlock") as having a "textbook case of female hysteria." Alice escapes, wanders through a mirror, and lands back in Wonderland.
The follow-up to the psychedelic "Alice in Wonderland" was directed by James Bobin and features many of the same characters from the first film. It is based on the classic story by Carroll but is said to be less dark and have a lighter tone than "Alice in Wonderland," which was helmed by Tim Burton. more >>
Gal Gadot, who brought Diana Prince/Wonder Woman to life on the big screen for the first time in the recently-released "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," has said that the world needs more female superheroes.
During a live Twitter Q&A session on Tuesday, March 29, the Israeli actress, who served for two years as a soldier with the Israel Defense Forces, spoke about what she loves about Wonder Woman, what it is like being a role model for young women everywhere, and what her favorite things are about the iconic DC superheroine.
According to Gadot, who is set to portray the 75-year-old DC Comics character in the character's first solo live-action feature film next year, her favorite things about Wonder Woman, apart from the fact that she is a strong female icon, is that she is also "feminine" and "vulnerable" and that she has many layers that "Batman v Superman" gave fans a glimpse of. more >>
The 69th Cannes Film Festival will feature a beautiful film from a familiar individual in the industry—Woody Allen. The veteran director's 49th film titled "Café Society" is reportedly screening out of competition and will be given the honor to open the film festivities.
The Guardian reports that this is Allen's third film to open Cannes, having claimed a similar privilege back in 2002 when his "Hollywood Ending" kicked off the festival, and then the critically acclaimed romantic comedy "Midnight in Paris" back in 2011.
This time, Café Society will be featuring Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart, in a story set in Hollywood during the 1930s. In the romantic comedy, Eisenberg plays as a screenwriter who searches for a career in the film industry, eventually finding himself in love in the lively café society that "defined the spirit of age." Other notable stars in the film include Steve Carell and Blake Lively. more >>
Actor Chris Pratt spent time working on something larger than life Easter Sunday, and it didn't involve an action movie superhero.
Pratt celebrated Easter by helping to erect a huge wooden cross atop a hill. The 36-year-old "Jurassic World" actor chronicled the process on Instagram, sharing step-by-step captioned photos that included picking the perfect spot, dragging the cross out to its location, taking a rest, digging a hole, putting the cross in place and leveling it, backfilling the hole with cement, and enjoying the finished product.
The actor, who is currently filming "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" has been consistently vocal about his Christian faith, especially after the premature birth of his son, Jack, who was born nine weeks early and weighed only 3 pounds. more >>
"God's Not Dead 2" actress Melissa Joan Hart said that one of the reasons American Christians are interested in the upcoming film is because they feel their faith is being trampled on.
Hart also reflected that in her early TV days she was criticized by some Christians for playing a teenage witch, but is now receiving criticism from the other end of the spectrum for playing a strong Christian woman who stands up for her faith.
"For the longest time, while I played a witch on television [on 'Sabrina, The Teenage Witch'], the Christian community attacked me for popularizing the magic aspects on that secular TV show," Hart said in an interview, according to Chicago Sun Times. more >>
Sadie Robertson believes "God's Not Dead 2" will change lives.
"... Truly an amazing film. I am so honored that I got to be a part of this Gods Not Dead Movement," Robertson, the 18-year-old "Duck Dynasty"-star-turned-author and actress wrote on Instagram. "It will encourage, and inspire all people."
In the follow-up to the 2014 hit faith-based film, Robertson plays a student named Marlene alongside familiar faces like David A.R. White, Trisha LaFache, Benjamin Onyango, Paul Kwo and the CCM group The Newsboys from the first film. The ensemble cast this time around also features mainstream actors like "Melissa & Joey" actress Melissa Joan Hart, "Ghostbusters" cast member Erne Robertson, "Law & Order" star Fred Thompson and Robin Givens from "Head of The Class." more >>
