Alice Through the Looking Glass
PG, Family, 113 min
In this sequel to 2010's Alice in Wonderland, Alice Kingsleigh (Mia Wasikowska) returns to London from an ocean voyage. She comes across a magical mirror and falls through it, back to the fantastical world of Underland.
There, she finds all of her old friends — including the White Rabbit (Michael Sheen), Absolem (Alan Rickman), the Cheshire Cat (Stephen Fry) and the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp). However, she's saddened to learn that the Hatter has lost his Muchness. Mirana (Anne Hathaway) advises Alice that if she wants to help the Hatter, she has to go get the Chronosphere, a metallic globe inside the chamber of the Grand Clock that powers all time. On her quest, Alice runs into a road block in the form of Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen), a strange creature who seems to be part human and part clock.

Betrayed by his worshippers, he was entombed, while his followers, the Four Horsemen, were destroyed. Centuries later, in 1983, he awakens to find the world is not as he left it. He believes mankind to be corrupt and weak, and seeks to destroy all humans and mutants in order to build anew.
He recruits a grieving Magneto (Michael Fassbender), who just lost his wife and child, as well as other wayward mutants to create this new world order. Charles Xavier, now Professor X (James McAvoy), and Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) must now lead a team of young X-Men to fight against Apocalypse and the inevitable destruction of the Earth.
