Before it died an ignoble death, Tim Burton‘s never-made ’90s blockbuster Superman Lives was poised to take the Man of Steel where no comic book movie had gone before. Burton freely adapted the film from the famous “Death of Superman” storyline, which saw the Kryptonian (played by longtime Superman fan, Nicolas Cage, who proved his devotion to the DC Comics icon by naming his son Kal-El) killed at the hands of the monstrous Doomsday followed by his eventual resurrection. “It would have been beautiful,” Cage tells Yahoo Movies at the Toronto International Film Festival, where the prolific actor’s latest film, the ultra-dark comedy Mom and Dad, premiered to rapturous applause amongst the midnight movie crowd.

Alice fights a battle against time — literally — in the first trailer for Alice Through the Looking Glass, the sequel to Tim Burton’s 2010 fantasia Alice in Wonderland. The new film sees an older Alice (Mia Wasikowska) return to Underland, only to discover that the land she saved from the vicious Jabberwocky is under attack once again. This time, the enemy is Time (Sacha Baron Cohen), a part-human, part-clock creature who has the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) in his clutches. The new CG-and-live-action adventure, based loosely on Lewis Carroll’s two Alice in Wonderland novels, features the return of original cast members Wasikowska, Depp, Helena Bonham Carter (as the Red Queen), and Anne Hathaway (as the White Queen), as well as voice actors Alan Rickman (the Caterpillar), Michael Sheen (the White Rabbit), Stephen Fry (the Cheshire Cat) and Timothy Spall (the Bloodhound).
