Comedic actor Sacha Baron Cohen has always had a little magic about him. So it’s only fitting that he’ll soon play a comic-based magician. Cohen is attached to star in Mandrake the Magician, an adaptation of a long-running comic strip created by Lee Falk.
At a certain point during Alice Through the Looking Glass, I thought to myself, “Wait, haven’t I seen this before?” And not in the cute “This movie is about time travel and we revisit scenes” kind of way. The movie got so monotonous, I literally felt like I’d seen a scene before in the same film.
Alice Through the Looking Glass comes out May 27, and its final trailer echoes what we’ve been seeing from all its advertising thus far: visually, this thing will be lush, dazzling, and aggressively whimsical; plot-wise, it probably won’t make a lot of sense.
