This fall, Sony Pictures' take on Marvel's VENOM thrilled audiences with an over-the-top and highly-entertaining adventure. It was a surprise, but this spin on one of Marvel's most enigmatic, complex, and badass characters fast-became a global hit, and now it's come home for the holidays on Digital, 4K Ultra HD™ Combo Pack, Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, and DVD! Directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland), VENOM features an all-star cast including Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises, Mad Max: Fury Road), Michelle Williams (The Greatest Showman), Riz Ahmed (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, TV’s “The Night Of”), Jenny Slate (Zootopia) and Woody Harrelson (Zombieland, The Hunger Games franchise). I've already recommended VENOM as a Rock Father-approved movie night title, and now I've teamed-up with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment to serve up a chance for you to win a killer VENOM Prize Pack. One Grand Prize Winner will receive a special Holiday VENOM box - the same kind given out to talent at the recent Venom Block Party in Los Angeles. It includes a VENOM Blu-ray, VENOM Santa Hat, holiday "GingerVenom" cookie, and a custom Paper Foldables VENOM Christmas ornament! One additional winner will receive VENOM on Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Combo Pack plus an Exclusive T-Shirt (size small).

We're in the home stretch of the 2018 holiday season, and that means that gift-givers will soon be hitting the stores in a frenzy. I've long-held that movies are not only the perfect gift - but they're truly the perfect stocking stuffer. They just tend to slip right into the stockings so snuggly - as if a Blu-ray package was intentionally-sized to fit within the traditional staple of seasonal gift holders. But what to get, especially for the action-loving guys on your list this season? Two top choices are both Holiday Wish Guide™ Picks here at The Rock Father™ Magazine: Sony Pictures Venom and Equalizer 2, both available at Walmart!
Marvel Studios' BLACK PANTHER is a film that kicked-off what's been a truly incredible year for the superhero genre, and perhaps the year that we start looking beyond these movies as just "superhero" films, and perhaps something greater. Ryan Coogler's epic has already nabbed three Gold Globe Awards nominations, a dozen for the Critic's Choice and six GRAMMY nods. Will Oscar be next? Magic 8 Ball at Rock Father™ HQ says "likely." Now Marvel Entertainment is looking ahead in celebration with the release of a new "Welcome to Wakanda" featurette. See it below and mark my words... Black Panther is just getting started!
It's been four years since Marvel Fans first experienced Kabam Games' Marvel Contest of Champions, and today the developers throw down the news that they're just getting started. A new cinematic trailer unleashes a first look at the Sentinel of the Spaceways - the Silver Surfer - as he traverses The Battlerealm undetected, witnessing all that has occurred in The Contest of Champions. He rides off searching the four corners of The Battlerealm in hope to find his friends and bringing them home. This is only the beginning for what lies in store for Year 5 of Marvel Contest of Champions...
As promised, it's a big week for news coming from Marvel Studios' CAPTAIN MARVEL, and the latest piece of the growing puzzle is the unveiling of Hasbro's spring 2019 product line.

Check out the full lineup below, including the collector-focused Marvel Legends line...
Over the past few years, Jada Toys has really been upping their game - slowly gaining space in the diecast aisle with some highly-detailed toy vehicles that are spread across a variety of licenses. In fact, the diecast category is a rare space in which you can find multiple licensees producing toys based on a shared property, with each company able to put their own spin on things. Marvel is a unique challenge in that the majority of heroes don't have (or need) a vehicle, and for the ones that do, it's generally Mattel's Hot Wheels line that brings them to life in the 1:64-scale. Still, there's a lot of room for creativity and other scales, and that's where Jada has come in, adding a few Marvel "inspired" vehicles to their 1:24-scale Hollywood Rides collection. Aimed at kids and collectors ages 8 and up (aside from Deadpool, who bears a 14+ mark), this new assortment presents some beautifully-designed, expertly-crafted vehicles that will appeal to a wide range of fans spanning comics and car culture. Plus, each ride comes with a diecast figure packed-in.
