I’ll be honest, my anticipation for Alice Through the Looking Glass has been practically nonexistent over the past few months. Why? Because I found Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland to be nothing short of mediocre, and up until this point, Through the Looking Glass hasn’t done much to persuade me that it’ll do any better of a job. Although, it did just get a new pop song to go with it, so at least that’s something… right?
A new trailer for the film has been released online today that not only provides an extended look at the film itself – which is only produced by Burton this time and instead directed by The Muppets helmer James Bobbin – but also previews the film’s official song as well, with Pink’s updated cover of Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit”.
Check out the trailer below:
I’ll give it this – the song actually works for the trailer, and at the beginning, I found myself actually intrigued by what I was seeing. With that being said, the overabundance of CGI, which plagued Burton’s previous installment, is where I began to increasingly lose interest in the film again. And no, seeing Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter reprising their roles from the first film again is not a convincing reason for me to see this film.
It’s possible this could be a fun, carefree film unlike its predecessor, which seemed to take itself far too seriously. For right now, in terms of the summer blockbuster season we have ahead of us though, Alice Through the Looking Glass isn’t even close to being on my radar.
Alice Through the Looking Glass is set to hit theatres on May 27th, 2016.
