Gary Ross’ female-fronted Ocean’s Eleven sorta-sequel-spinoff-whatever has started picking up steam, and in addition to confirming Cate Blanchett’s casting, the latest update adds two more talented names to the ensemble: Mindy Kaling and Helena Bonham Carter. The trio join Sandra Bullock in the upcoming project, which is being produced by original Ocean’s trilogy director Steven Soderbergh.

‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ Review: There’s No Wonder Here

Much of Tim Burton’s 2010 ‘Alice in Wonderland’ was a forgettable, unsavory mess, but it did have some redeemable qualities. The filmmaker’s eye-popping visuals and imaginative production design were the best aspects of the largely unbearable Disney movie. But you’ll find none of that in the new sequel.

Time to Watch the ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ Super Bowl Ad

It’s sad to hear Alan Rickman’s voice. We lost the great Die Hard and Harry Potter star just a few weeks ago; Rickman died after a battle with pancreatic cancer at the age of 69. His work in Alice Through the Looking Glass is his final onscreen performance; he plays Absolem, the Caterpillar. That’s him saying “You’ve been gone too long Alice. There are matters that cannot be neglected.

The week of Alice Through the Looking Glass promo isn’t over yet. After that ridiculously teasey teaser and the first trailer for Disney‘s sequel to Tim Burton‘s Alice in Wonderland, we now have a slew of character posters.

Yes, the first substantial look into the 2010 smash’s sequel is here, five long years later and not a moment too soon. Starting with Alan Rickman’s purred opening line, “You’ve been gone too long, Alice,” a possible nod to the unusually long gap separating installments of the franchise, time is the name of the game.

Don’t Blink or You’ll Miss the ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ Teaser

The new promotional clip for the follow-up to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, clocking in at a whopping eleven seconds, does actually feel like it’s teasing us with its tantalizing brevity and refusal to surrender any actual information. The word “teaser” has never felt more appropriate.

‘Suffragette’ Review: Carey Mulligan Fights For Women’s Rights in the Lifeless Historical Drama

It’s 1912 and Maud Watts (Carey Mulligan), a 26-year-old mother, is working as a laundress at a London factory, the same one she’s worked at since her early teens. Like the many other women in the sweltering warehouse, Maud works a third more hours than her husband (Ben Whishaw) and the other male employees, and makes considerably less. But this is the 20th century, a time where women were expected to do no more than birth children and bring home an income to feed those children. In Suffragette, screenwriter Abi Morgan (Shame, The Iron Lady) and director Sarah Gavron take us back to that era to remind us of the fight that eventually earned women the right to vote in the U.K. in 1928.

Helena Bonham Carter may have proven largely extraneous to both the plot and failures of this past weekend's 'The Lone Ranger,' but that won't stop fans of the chameleon actress from checking out her turn as Elizabeth Taylor in BBC's forthcoming drama adaptation, 'Burton & Taylor.' Lindsay Lohan in 'Liz & Dick' this ain't, and we've got the first look at the production's new trailer!
