It was back in September that audiences first got a look at Marvel Studios' CAPTAIN MARVEL, and as we enter the all-important 3-month ramp-up to release, the second full trailer has been released! Fresh from its debut on ESPN's Monday Night Football, feast your eyes upon a fresh look at CAPTAIN MARVEL - in theaters on March 8, 2019. And stay tuned for more Marvel-ous news and features in the days ahead!
It wasn't long ago that I found myself playing host to nearly 250 Goosebumps fans for a special advance screening of Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween near Chicago. Now comes word that GOOSEBUMPS 2 (which seems to have lost the tagline) is coming home on Christmas Day on Digital, with the Blu-ray and DVD to follow on 1/15/2019. Slappy holidays, everyone! Check out the announcement video below!

It's available now for pre-order at Entertainment Earth!
As the end of 2018 draws near, we're just three months out from the theatrical launch of Marvel Studios' CAPTAIN MARVEL - a film with a lot riding on it when it comes to the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Of course that also means a bunch of new toys and collectibles, and the folks at Funko are right out in front with the announcement of a full range of Pop! Vinyl Figures, Pocket Pop! Keychains, Pens and Dorbz. As always, it's the core Pop! Vinyls that will be the most sought-after, and for Captain Marvel that's gonna me a lot of running around for completists. From a consumer standpoint, I'm not a big fan of exclusives, though retailers use them to draw the crowds. For Captain Marvel, that means keeping an eye out at mass retailers, specialty shops like Entertainment Earth and hunting down variants at GameStop, FYE, Walmart, Target, Boxlunch and Hot Topic to collect them all!

Another tip of the hat to our friends to the north today as Toys "R" Us Canada has officially brought back a classic just in time for the holiday season. Originally written by Linda Kaplan Thaler and James Patterson, "I Don't Want to Grow Up, I'm a Toys 'R' Us Kid" has been a familiar staple since the 80s, and now it's a reminder for all kids big and small that they can still be a Toys 'R' Us kid as TRU Canada is "here to stay and play." The jingle is back in several spots that are airing on television and radio. See a couple of them below...
