Coming off an epic World Premiere for the film this week, WaterTower Music is making a splash with the release of the AQUAMAN - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.

Aquaman features an original score by multi-award-winning composer Rupert Gregson-Williams (Wonder Woman, Hotel Rwanda, Hacksaw Ridge), includes a track by composer Joseph Bishara (The Conjuring, Annabelle) and debuts the new songs “Ocean To Ocean” by Pitbull Feat. Rhea (a riff on Toto's oft-covered "Africa"), and the end title song “Everything I Need” by Skylar Grey.

As my girls get older, I do find myself occasionally missing certain things from "simpler times" that weren't all too long ago. One of those things is Chuggington, a series I'd written much about a few years back - a hit from UK-based Ludorum that had been airing here in the States on Disney Junior before quietly building more of a YouTube presence. Now comes news that Ludorum has sold the popular franchise, and the Chuggers have rolled into a new station right here in the States with Herschend Entertainment Studios taking ownership.
Following a first-look at some character art along with some casting announcements from Lionsgate's forthcoming PLAYMOBIL: The Movie. back in October, things had been a bit quiet on that front.

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!
