Ferdinand the Bull is like a member of our family. We’ve been reading that book at bedtime since my nieces, who are now old enough to legally drink with me, were so little you couldn’t understand what they were saying (Seriously, one of them kept asking for Tah-tahs and Tagga Milk and we had NO idea what she was saying. She wanted Pop-Tarts and Chocolate Milk, of course). Now one of my nieces is reading Ferdinand to her own little girl, who can’t wait to see him on the Big Screen! And how appropriate is it that the big-scary-bull-who’s-actually-a-softie is played by John Cena? Even better, I have Family 4-Packs to give away, so you don’t have to pick a favorite kid to see the movie with! Continue reading →
What do you do when you’re a movie series about kids (based on a book series about kids) and your stars get too old to play kids? Well, if you’re the Wimpy Kid series, you just get all-new kids.
Such is the case with Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, which introduces us to a brand new Greg, Rowley and, of course, Rodrick. They even gave us a new Mom and Dad, who are now played by Tom Everett Scott and Alicia Silverstone. That had to be a little weird for original Wimpy parents, Steve Zahn and Rachel Harris, who I guess have to play grandparents now?
Anyhow, I have Family 4-Packs to see Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul EARLY and FOR FREE. Continue reading →
Did you realize that The BFG was written by Roald Dahl, directed by Steven Spielberg and released by Disney?
That has to be one of strongest Film Trifectas I’ve ever heard of!
It stars Oscar winner Mark Rylance as a giant who befriends a lonely young girl and brings her to his home in Giant Country. It’s not entirely safe though, because the other giants prefer to eat people. Can their friendship survive, as the other giants become increasingly more dangerous? How can they warn the rest of the world about giants, when no one else believes in them?
The BFG opens in theaters July 1st, which would have been Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday, but you can see it EARLY and FOR FREE! Just click HERE, then watch the trailer below. Oh dear, it’s probably not a good sign that I just cried through THAT.
