Cyndi Lauper’s 11th studio album, Detour, is aptly named for its mix of classic country songs — a departure from the singer’s typical rock-pop vibe. Her unique voice shines through in covers like Patsy Cline’s “Walking After Midnight” and “I Fall to Pieces.”
The adventure continues for Alice in Alice Through the Looking Glass when she finds a mirror and is transported to the whimsical world of Underland. The White Queen sends Alice on a quest, returning her to the past where she embarks on a perilous race against time to save the Mad Hatter.
In Captain America: Civil War, Captain America leads the new team of Avengers around the world to stop threats. Unfortunately, one stop on this tour leads to an international incident that’s gone awry. Mounting political pressure results in the superheroes being forced to register with the government — and while some of them are on board with the idea, others are not as much. This leads to a clash of the titans, where instead of heroes fighting villains, they are fighting other heroes.
