Later this month, I will be back on the ground in Los Angeles, working alongside my friends at Walt Disney Studios for the launch of their new film, Christopher Robin. Today, tickets for the film went on-sale (get 'em via my affiliate, Fandango) and families will get their first look into the Hundred Acre Wood on the night of August 2, for preview showings ahead of its August 3 release. As those tickets went on-sale, Disney also just released a new "Adventure" sneak-peek and an all-new featurette about the legacy of the famous characters created by A.A. Milne and E.H. Shepard. Take a look!
This Hotel Transylvania Special Feature is presented in collaboration between The Rock Father™ Magazine, Pollinate Media Group® and Snyder’s-Lance Inc.
With summer in full swing, we've entered the big summer movie season both in theaters and at home. For regular readers, it should be no secret that we're big movie fans, and while the traditional cinema experience can be a cool break from the hot summer temperatures, our family loves going to the drive-in, and we also love showing movies in our backyard theater right here at home. Backyard movies are a great way to bring the neighborhood together, and depending on what you're showing, it can also lend itself to some fun themes. Since Sony Pictures Animation's Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation is arriving in theaters on July 13, here's five essentials for throwing a Hotel Transylvania double-feature to get re-acquainted with how the story of Dracula and Mavis began. You'll be all caught up before Drac's pack sets sail on a monster cruise ship helmed by a Captain who holds a mysterious secret that could threaten them all!
They don't really grasp the legacy or importance just yet, but our girls first experienced the world that Fred Rogers created thanks to Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood on PBS Kids. Now, there's a new documentary that takes a look back at how it all began, and why the spirit of Mister Rogers Neighborhood is exactly what the world could use right now. Focus Features' Won't You Be My Neighbor is winning audiences to become one of this summer's surprise hits (99% "Fresh" on Rotten Tomatoes), and now The Rock Father™ has teamed-up Fandango and the all-new Fandango FanShop to invite you back into the neighborhood with a fun Mr. Rogers prize pack. Two (2) lucky readers will receive bundles including a a Funko Mister Rogers Pocket Pop! Keychain plus a $20 Fandango Gift Card. Won't you be our neighbor?

Marvel Studios' AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR is roaring into theaters (read my review here) as the largest and arguably most epic superhero film of all-time! Serving as the third Avengers film and the 19th film in the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, Infinity War closes out the first ten years of Marvel Studios while throwing open the door for what's yet to come. When viewing a film like this for the first time, the only way to see it is on the big screen, and The Rock Father™ Magazine and Fandango have teamed-up to get five (5) lucky readers hooked-up with limited-edition Avengers: Infinity War Iron Man-themed Fandango Gift Cards. Each $25 Gift Card is good toward seeing Infinity War in the participating theater of your choosing or for checking out something at home via FandangoNOW.
I've said it before, but "space" is hot right now, and for a kid that grew up in the Shuttle-era with movies like SPACE CAMP and countless other sci-fi adventures in regular rotation, it's been fantastic to see The Rock Daughters be so inquisitive and excited for outer-space adventures. Fueled by the likes of STAR WARS, MILES FROM TOMORROWLAND, THE FLOOGALS and READY, JET, GO!, the kids have become enthralled with space, and it's obvious that they're not alone as even the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES recently went into orbit, and now BARBIE is getting into the action. Mattel has launched an entire line of toys based on BARBIE: STAR LIGHT ADVENTURE (I already bought the girls a few of the dolls), the latest CGI animated feature created in partnership with Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Coming to Blu-ray and DVD on September 13th, Fathom Events, Mattel and Women's Forum will bring BARBIE: STAR LIGHT ADVENTURE to the big screen for one day only, Saturday, July 30th, 2016, complete with an exclusive introduction from Barbie PLUS deleted scenes and bonus content, a special interview with a NASA astronaut, and the “Firefly” and “Shooting Star” music videos with lyrics so you can sing along!
