Trailer Buzz: 'Alice Through the Looking Glass,' Matthew McConaughey in 'Sing,' 'The Divergent Series: Allegiant'

Alice Through the Looking Glass

Last night's Grammy Awards broadcast was a big one for music fans, but movie fans could also enjoy the sight of presenter Anna Kendrick, as well as Johnny Depp joining Alice Cooper as part of the Hollywood Vampires for a live musical performance. The broadcast also featured the premiere of a new-look trailer for an upcoming Depp movie.

Alice Through the Looking Glass is a sequel to 2010's Alice in Wonderland, with Depp reprising his role as the Mad Hatter. The movie stars Mia Wasikowska as Alice, who must not only return to Wonderland but also go back in time in order to save the Mad Hatter. 

The trailer also provides a peek at other returning and new characters, including those played by Alan Rickman, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen. James Bobin (Muppets Most Wanted) has inherited the director's chair from Tim Burton; the movie will open in theaters on May 27.


Judging by the first trailer for Sing, we should expect a different type of animated adventure when it arrives in multiplexes on December 21. It's written and directed by Garth Jennings, whose credits include the terrific live-action movies The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Son of Rambow. The plot follows a koala named Buster who stages a singing competition intended to help increase business at his theater.

The comedy looks incredibly silly, which doesn't surprise since it's coming from the company that produced the delightful Despicable Me movies. The all-star voice cast is led by Matthew McConaughey as Buster the koala, with Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, John C. Reilly and Taron Egerton joining in the fun.

The Divergent Series: Allegiant

Somewhat older audiences have a treat in store for them when The Divergent Series: Allegiant smashes into theaters on March 18. This trailer has an air of doom about it, even though it's only the third installment in the series and there's a fourth episode to come next year.

Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller, Zoë Kravitz and Naomi Watts reprise their roles, with Jeff Daniels adding another layer of danger to the action adventure.
