Alan Rickman’s Final Two Films Hit Theaters This Year


Movie lovers are mourning the loss of actor Alan Rickman, who passed away on Thursday (Jan. 14) at age 69 after battling cancer. His legacy lives on through classic films like “Die Hard” and the more widely recognized “Harry Potter” films.

Rickman wasted no time in the years leading up to his death. In fact, he has two more films that are yet to be released. The first, “Eye in the Sky,” is a thriller that also stars Helen Mirren and “Breaking Bad’s” Aaron Paul. It hits theaters March 11 and lays out the story of a top-secret drone operation meant to capture terrorists in Kenya.

The actor’s final film will be “Alice Through The Looking Glass,” which releases on May 27 and follows the nominal character’s journey back to Wonderland to save the Mad Hatter. Rickman repeats his role as the Blue Caterpillar, and unfortunately, doesn’t actually appear onscreen. But, as in the trailer for “Eye in the Sky,” his iconic voice is the first thing we hear in this teaser below.

But the veteran actor didn’t stop there. He lent his voice to a video for refugee aid. In the recording, uploaded to YouTube last month, a tortoise munches a strawberry onscreen, while Rickman’s voiceover explains how watching the video raises funds for Save the Children and Refugee Council.

Rickman’s diversity and chameleon-like acting expertise will continue to live on through his iconic films. In the words for the late, great Alan Rickman;

“If people want to know who I am, it is all in the work.”
