Official Announcement: Jingle All the Way 2 Arrives this December!

Holiday Wish GuideIt's the announcement I've been waiting to share... official word from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and WWE Studios that JINGLE ALL THE WAY 2 will be available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on December 2. For those just joining the fun, 1996's JINGLE ALL THE WAY is my favorite Holiday film of all-time, so when I had a chance to visit the Vancouver set of JINGLE ALL THE WAY 2 back in March, I had to do it. Here we find Larry the Cable Guy and WWE Superstar Santino Marella teaming up for what I hope will become a new Christmas classic. Check out full details below, then stay tuned in the weeks ahead for some exclusive looks at the making of the film, right here on THE ROCK FATHER!


MANCHESTER ORCHESTRA is doing a few U.S. dates for the next week, but then they head down under with a run of dates where Kevin Devine will be supporting. So, what better way to kick-off the upcoming tour than to team-up for a cover song of epic proportions? That's just what Manchester's Andy Hull and Kevin Devine did when they recorded one of the greatest tunes from the 20th Century songbook, Will Smith's theme song to THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR...

Holiday Wish Guide: Pee-wee’s Playhouse on Blu-ray and DVD

Holiday Wish GuideReleased for the first-time-ever on Blu-ray this Fall in an 8-disc Complete Series box set, along with a 4-disc Complete Seasons One & Two DVD set (which I have) Pee-wee’s Playhouse is just as delightfully bizarre as you probably remember it from the first time around... perhaps even more so. Riding the retro wave, Pee-wee Herman and friends look better-than-ever, fully remastered from the original film elements in painstaking detail by the team at Shout! Factory. Re-watching the show as a parent nearly 30 years later (I watched it regularly when it made it's debut on CBS in 1986), it's interesting to see just how Paul Reubens managed to work kid-friendly, positive messages and even educational elements (Pee-wee ended up doing a guest shot on SESAME STREET) into the zany confines of the Playhouse - racking up numerous awards, including nearly two dozen EMMYS.

31 Days of Halloween: Eric Herman - MONSTER LEAGUE BASEBALL

MONSTER LEAGUE BASEBALLLast night, the San Francisco Giants captured the pennant and were declared World Series Champions, thus ending another season of Major League Baseball, and sending the Kansas City Royals back into the shadows of shame. But what if the Giants weren't giants at all, but were aliens... and not from San Francisco, but New York? This is just one of many mysteries to ponder in MONSTER LEAGUE BASEBALL, the new video from family music artist, ERIC HERMAN. But it's not a song, it's a radio play, and there may not be Giants, but there is a Giant Spider who calls upon STAR WARS' most famous Dark Lord of The Sith, DARTH VADER, to pinch-hit. Gather the kids and turn up the volume on that there computer box, and get ready to find out what would happen if Count Dracula, The Mummy, Bigfoot and The Invisible Man happened to play for Chicago. It's a perfect entry for Day 30 of 31 Days of Halloween here on THE ROCK FATHER...

Watch: A NEW Look at AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, and the MASSIVE MARVEL Cinematic Universe Phase 3 Plan...

After the masterful handling of the week-early trailer leak for MARVEL's AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, a lot of folks wondered what then would become of the promised sneak-preview that was slated to air with tonight's AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC? Walt Disney Studios answered that with "A Special Look" at the upcoming film, and one that capped a fantastic day for fans of the MARVEL Cinematic Universe. Take a peek...
