  • 113 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: James Bobin
  • Cast: Mia Wasikowsksa, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen
  • UK release: 27 May 2016

Alice (Wasikowska) has to travel back in time to help the Mad Hatter (Depp), to the annoyance of Time (Baron Cohen). Nimble blockbuster with a good blend of mirth and melancholy, and director Bobin never lets the CGI swamp the story in the way Burton did in the first film.

The true story of how, in 1970, a disenchanted Elvis Presley (Shannon) visited the White House and offered his services as an undercover narcotics agent to President Nixon (Spacey).
