The Jungle Book at AMC Prime Theaters with Dolby #Giveaway

I cannot wait to see The Jungle Book at AMC Prime next weekend. It’s a pretty awesome film to start with but the fun part is next Saturday I will be watching from a new type of theater, the AMC Prime in Tyson’s Corner. So what’s new at these theaters? Dolby has some new tricks. Dolby Cinema at AMC Prime combines spectacular image and sound technologies with inspired design and amazing comfort. Moviegoers will be wowed by Dolby Vision™ laser projection and Dolby Atmos® sound, as well as AMC Prime power reclining seats with seat transducers that vibrate with the action on screen. There are several locations around the nation that are going to have this new experience. The Dolby Vision laser projection system delivers high dynamic range with enhanced color technology that produces incredible blacks and a contrast ratio that far exceeds any other image technology on the market today. The result is a richer, more detailed viewing experience that delivers strikingly vivid and realistic images that make audiences feel like they are in the movie’s world. Dolby Atmos, the award-winning Dolby® sound technology, moves audio around the theatre, even overhead, with amazing richness and depth. The lifelike sounds of music, people, and things flow all around the theatre in sync with the action to create a more immersive and moving experience.

AMC Prime is a new experience too. Gone are the days of hard seats with no give and screens that flicker.

AMC Prime—AMC’s branded Premium Large Format, and the highest-rated experience offered by AMC according to guest feedback—launched at AMC BarryWoods 24 in Kansas City, Mo., in 2013 and now spans nine locations in major markets around the country.

Alice through the looking glass

In Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” an all-new spectacular adventure featuring the unforgettable characters from Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories, Alice returns to the whimsical world of Underland and travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter. Directed by James Bobin, who brings his own unique vision to the spectacular world Tim Burton created on screen in 2010 with “Alice in Wonderland,” the film is written by Linda Woolverton based on characters created by Lewis Carroll and produced by Joe Roth, Suzanne Todd and Jennifer Todd and Tim Burton with John G. Scotti serving as executive producer. “Alice Through the Looking Glass” reunites the all-star cast from the worldwide blockbuster phenomenon, including: Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska and Helena Bonham Carter along with the voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen and Timothy Spall. We are also introduced to several new characters: Zanik Hightopp (Rhys Ifans), the Mad Hatter’s father and Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen), a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock.
 
Alice Kingsleigh (Wasikowska) has spent the past few years following in her father’s footsteps and sailing the high seas. Upon her return to London, she comes across a magical looking glass and returns to the fantastical realm of Underland and her friends the White Rabbit (Sheen), Absolem (Rickman), the Cheshire Cat (Fry) and the Mad Hatter (Depp), who is not himself. The Hatter has lost his Muchness, so Mirana (Hathaway) sends Alice on a quest to borrow the Chronosphere, a metallic globe inside the chamber of the Grand Clock which powers all time. Returning to the past, she comes across friends – and enemies – at different points in their lives, and embarks on a perilous race to save the Hatter before time runs out. Presented in Digital 3D™, Real D 3D and IMAX® 3D, Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass” opens in U.S. theaters on May 27, 2016.

Even though it’s CGI the characters are so dang realistic that I would be scared they might actually jump off the screen. Look at Shere Khan here! The movements, colorings and characteristics make you wonder if they filmed a real tiger to get some of this instead!

You can also take a look through this specially created site exclusively by Disney on Tumblr, you can explore chapters like “Words to Live By: The bare necessities for a man cub to survive” and “In the Face of Danger: Learn about the Red Flower and Shere Khan.” New chapters will be revealed over the next two weeks featuring exclusive content from the film.

Zootopia Opens Today Why You Should See It

We got a peek at Zootopia on Monday. I have to say I found a ton of good morals involved in it. First was being able to teach our kids about right and wrong. There is a great dichotomy of Nick Wilde doing wrong but learning that he can be a good guy still.

image012

Then there is the moral of being you and standing up for what you want to be/do. Judy Hopps does this throughout the movie from the opening scene to the very end. She stumbles along the way but comes back to it and I love it.

ZOOTOPIA opens in theatres everywhere on March 4th.

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia,” a comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”) and co-directed by Jared Bush (“Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero”), opens in theaters on March 4, 2016.

ABC Thursday Must See

Thursday is my must see TV viewing night. The kids have their own shows but as soon as they go to bed it’s my time. I turn on Grey’s Anatomy and How to Get Away with Murder. I love the actresses on each show but Viola Davis is my favorite actress right now. I love everything she’s been in and I love seeing her bring the depth of the characters to life. Evidently I’m not alone in my ABC Thursday love:

“Grey’s Anatomy” (8:00-9:00 p.m. – 7.2 million and 2.1/7 in AD18-49):

At 8:00 p.m. opposite CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” (200th episode) and “Life in Pieces,” ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” (2.1/7) beat out the first hour of Fox’s 2-hour “American Idol” in Adults 18-49 (2.0/7) and overshadowed NBC’s “You, Me and the Apocalypse” by 250% (0.6/2).

“Scandal” (9:00-10:00 p.m. – 5.9 million and 1.7/5 in AD18-49):

At 9:00 p.m., ABC’s “Scandal” dominated its drama competition in Adults 18-49 (1.8/6), leading NBC’s “The Blacklist” by 31% (1.3/4).

“How to Get Away with Murder” (10:00-11:00 p.m. – 4.9 million and 1.5/5 in AD18-49):

In the 10 o’clock hour, ABC’s “How to Get Away with Murder” (1.5/5) dominated its NBC and CBS drama competition for the 3rd-consecutive week, leading “Shades of Blue” by 50% (1.0/4) and “Elementary” by 36% (1.1/4). “Murder” was up from its week-ago Fast Affiliate Adult 18-49 rating by 7%.

Disney’s Jungle Book Activity Sheets

Have you seen the trailer for the new live action Disney’s Jungle Book movie? Not only do I have it here for you to watch, but I have some great activity sheets for you to do with the kids.

Directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray). Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire. The all-star cast also includes Lupita Nyong’o as the voice of the fiercely protective mother wolf Raksha, and Giancarlo Esposito as the voice of wolf pack’s alpha male Akela. “The Jungle Book” seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world. The wild adventure swings into theaters in 3D on April 15, 2016.
