Alice Through the Looking Glass Theatrical Trailer (2016)
Theatrical trailer for Alice Through the Looking Glass, which shows plenty of never before seen footage from the film.
Alice Kingsleigh (Wasikowska) has spent the past few years following in her father’s footsteps and sailing the high seas. Upon her return to London, she comes across a magical looking glass and returns to the fantastical realm of Underland and her friends the White Rabbit (Sheen), Absolem (Rickman), the Cheshire Cat (Fry) and the Mad Hatter (Depp), who is not himself. The Hatter has lost his Muchness, so Mirana (Hathaway) sends Alice on a quest to borrow the Chronosphere, a metallic globe inside the chamber of the Grand Clock which powers all time. Returning to the past, she comes across friends – and enemies – at different points in their lives, and embarks on a perilous race to save the Hatter before time runs out.
Capturing the wonder of Lewis Carroll’s beloved “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” (1865) and “Through the Looking-Glass” (1871) with stunning, avant-garde visuals and the most charismatic characters in literary history.
If you are into the game Six Degrees of Separation, Alice Through the Looking Glass would be a great starting point to get you to any of the Harry Potter movies or Les Miserables. But I guess that's true of any film with a cast as strong as this.
While I at first couldn't comprehend why Disney thought a sequel to Alice in Wonderland was worth doing -- save for a cash grab -- I'm starting to come along. The first trailer for the film was nothing to get excited over, but the Special Look trailer upped the game with more fantastical visuals and the track "White Rabbit" from Pink. The song did so well in matching up to the visuals, Disney had no issue using it again for this third Alice Through the Looking Glass trailer.
Hands down the best trailer we've seen so far for the film, it gets audiences caught up with Alice's current predicament -- a mental hospital -- and her return to Wonderland. Since I'm a fan of Sacha Baron Cohen, I can't help but love his look as the character Time. Hopefully he can help give adults something that the first installment was lacking. I'm not exactly sure what exactly it was, but it was lacking er, a lot.
Kudos for the cool shattering effect used on Humpty Dumpty.
