Alice at Hatter's Place

Pink Goes Alice!

Pink is a rock & roll powerhouse with a range that encompasses the softest ballad to the most soul-wrenching scream. That she’s covering Jefferson Airplane’s White Rabbit for Alice Through The Looking Glass has to be considered something of a coup for the production – as you will hear in the featurette that follows the jump, she can hit that icy sharp edge that Grace Slick made famous with the Airplane.

To pair up with the Pink/Alice/White Rabbit featurette, Disney has also released an extended spot for the film – which you will also find following the jump. Enjoy!

Alice Through The Looking Glass premieres on May 27th.

Though Crimson Peak is a horror tale with ghosts, it is not really a ghost story – people are far nastier than ectoplasm here.

Crimson Peak is Guillermo Del Toro’s passion project – the one he has worked on for years (as many as his H.P. Lovecraft adaptation? Probably). It’s a classic ghost story set in a big old mansion in which there are areas that ‘are not safe.’

The cast – which is pretty awesome – includes Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain and Charlie Hunnam. Legendary Pictures has released a new trailer that you can see immediately following the jump.
