BlackPanther2I’ve heard from my blogging friends who had the honor and privilege to attend the red carpet premiere of Marvel Studios’ Black Panther that is it amazing. Here’s a little taste of it for you:


Marvel Studios’ BLACK PANTHER follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.

#WrinkleInTime

AWrinkleInTime

From visionary director Ava DuVernay comes Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” an epic adventure based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic which takes audiences across dimensions of time and space,  examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light.

Meg Murry is a typical middle school student struggling with issues of self-worth who just wants to fit in. The daughter of two world-renowned physicists, she is intelligent and uniquely gifted, as is Meg’s younger brother, Charles Wallace, but she has yet to realize it for herself. Complicating matters is the mysterious disappearance of Mr. Murry, which has left Meg devastated and her mother broken-hearted. Charles Wallace introduces Meg and her fellow classmate Calvin to three celestial beings (Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Who) who have journeyed to Earth to help search for their father, and together they embark on their formidable quest. Travelling via a wrinkling of time and space known as tessering, they are transported to worlds beyond their imagination where they must confront a powerful evil force. To make it back home to Earth, Meg must face the darkness within herself in order to harness the strength necessary to defeat the darkness rapidly enveloping the Universe.

December 25, 2018 – MARY POPPINS RETURNS (Walt Disney Studios)

#MaryPoppinsReturns

Image converted using ifftoany

In Disney’s “Mary Poppins Returns,” an all new sequel with a fresh sensibility that celebrates the spirit of the original, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives. Emily Blunt (“The Girl on the Train,” “Into the Woods”) stars as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure and Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton,” “Moana”) plays her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light—and life—to the streets of London. “Mary Poppins Returns” is directed by Rob Marshall (“Into the Woods,” “Chicago”). The screenplay is by David Magee (“Life of Pi”) and the screen story is by Magee & Marshall & John DeLuca (“Into the Woods”) based upon The Mary Poppins Stories by PL Travers. The producers are Marshall, DeLuca and Marc Platt (“La La Land”) with Callum McDougall serving as executive producer and the music is by Marc Shaiman (“Hairspray”) with songs by Shaiman and Scott Wittman (“Hairspray”). The film also stars Ben Whishaw (“Spectre”) as Michael Banks; Emily Mortimer (“Hugo”) as Jane Banks; Julie Walters (“Harry Potter” films) as the Banks’ housekeeper Ellen; with Colin Firth (“The King’s Speech”) as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank’s William Weatherall Wilkins; and Meryl Streep (“Florence Foster Jenkins”) as Mary’s eccentric cousin, Topsy and introduces three new Banks’ children played by Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and newcomer Joel Dawson. Angela Lansbury appears as the Balloon Lady, a treasured character from the PL Travers books and Dick Van Dyke is Mr. Dawes Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Firth’s character.

PL Travers first introduced the world to the no-nonsense nanny in her 1934 children’s book “Mary Poppins.” However, the subsequent adventures of Mary Poppins remained only on the pages of the seven other PL Travers’ books…until now. “Mary Poppins Returns” is drawn from the wealth of material in these additional books. The film takes place in 1930s Depression-era London 24 years after the original film was set. Michael Banks works for the same financial institution that employed his father and still lives at 17 Cherry Tree Lane with his three children, Annabel, John and Georgie and their housekeeper Ellen. Carrying on in her mother’s tradition, Jane Banks campaigns for workers’ rights and provides a helping hand to Michael’s family. When the family suffers a personal loss, Mary Poppins magically re-enters their lives and with Jack’s help, brings joy and wonder back into their home.

“Mary Poppins Returns” will be released in U.S. theaters on December 25, 2018.

Marvel Studios to donate up to $1 million in recognition of new charitable initiative!
Benedict Cumberbatch, star of Marvel Studios’ upcoming film DOCTOR STRANGE, announced the launch of Marvel Studios: Hero Acts, a new charitable initiative focused on bringing help and hope to kids around the world.
Learn how you can help:

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (October 5, 2016) – Today in a special video message, actor Benedict Cumberbatch, star of Marvel Studios’ upcoming film “Doctor Strange,” announced the launch of Marvel Studios: Hero Acts, a new charitable initiative focused on bringing help and hope to kids around the world.

Marvel Studios launched the first Hero Acts campaign, and from now until the end of the year, Marvel Studios will donate five dollars ($5) to Save the Children, up to U.S. one million dollars, for every fan who uploads a photo of themselves in their favorite Marvel hero pose. Marvel Studios is collaborating with Fotition, a new social change platform, to power the experience on a brand-new website MarvelStudiosHeroActs.com. Fans will be able to visit the site to upload their photo and choose from a selection of custom Marvel-themed overlays. They will then be able to post their photo directly to the Hero Acts gallery and to their other social channels using the hashtags #marvelstudios #heroacts.

“After the experience of filming portions of ‘Doctor Strange’ in Nepal, our team was inspired to give back to the kids there and wanted to establish a larger ongoing program in support of children facing extraordinary circumstances,” said Kevin Feige, Producer & President, Marvel Studios. “For our first Marvel Studios: Hero Acts effort, we’re thrilled to team up with Save the Children, an organization with decades of experience improving the lives of children around the world.”

With fan participation, the donations made through Hero Acts can help Save the Children provide much-needed learning materials for as many as 123,000 kids in Nepal, Haiti, and the United States. Together, Marvel Studios and its fans can help put these children on a path where they can learn, thrive, and strive toward a better future.

“Save the Children is extremely grateful to be the first nonprofit organization to be part of Marvel Studios: Hero Acts,” said Carolyn Miles, President & CEO of Save the Children. “Even though more children are enrolled in primary school worldwide than ever before, many are struggling to learn and to get a quality education. That is why this collaboration is so valuable. The funds raised through Hero Acts will provide much-needed learning materials in communities where there are few resources, and will boost children’s basic skills to help them succeed in school and in life. The actions taken by Marvel fans will make a meaningful difference for children.”

Whether visiting children in hospitals, granting wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses, or inspiring kids and families through our content, Marvel Studios: Hero Acts builds on the tradition of lending a hand to children in times of need. From our filmmakers to our fans, we believe we each have our own superpower to lend to the world, and Marvel Studios is dedicated to bringing that out in everyone.

Disclosure- I was invited by Disney to attend this all expense paid press trip but all opinions are 100% my own.

20160409_185452
Captain America: Civil War is finally here in theaters! When I was in LA last month for the Captain America Event I had the opportunity to screen the film and I LOVED every minute of it. So much so that I went again last night to the first possible showing in my local theater. It was THAT good but I’ll get to that in a minute. Make sure to check out my interview posts with Chris Evans, Emily VanCamp, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen and Directors Anthony & Joe Russo to learn a little more behind the scenes exclusive details.

Keep your butt in your seat until the lights come on!!!!!

image001 (1)Before I even get into my review I wanted to make sure you see my important tip. This is a Marvel movie and as such, there are BONUS SCENES in the middle AND the end of the credits. These are usually sneak peek scenes that give you some insight into where the story will go in the next movie and more. I was shocked that last night when I saw the movie so many people got up as soon as the credits started. And then most of the ones that stayed for the first bonus scene got up and left before the second one. People, butt in your seat until the lights come on!!!!! 😉

We know from many of the other Marvel movies that while the Avengers do a great deal of protecting people, there have often been lots of destruction and civilian injuries and deaths. The story of Captain America: Civil War centers around the world wanting the Avengers to sign the Sokovia Accords which would basically reign them in and force them to answer to a special UN panel.

THE TEAMS:

On one hand you have #TeamCap supported by Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), Falcon/Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), Ant-Man/Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), Hawkeye/Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), Scarlet Witch/Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen), and Winter Soldier/Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan). They believe that they should be able to make their own choices when it comes to using their powers, defeating evil, and protecting the world.

“The safest hands are still our own.” ~Captain America

And on the other side #TeamIronMan lead by Iron Man/Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Panther/T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), Vision (Paul Bettany), Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), and War Machine/James Rhodey (Don Cheadle) who think that the Avengers should be supervised to protect innocent lives.

I stand off firmly on #TeamIronMan but I feel for #TeamCap and understand where they are coming from, too. There isn’t a clear Right vs. Wrong here. You’ll probably relate to both sides and that’s exactly what the directors wanted to happen.

“The intent with the film was to hopefully when you’re done watching the movie you leave the theater and you argue with your family and friends about  it. We didn’t want to make a declarative statement one way or the other. We just want to represent both as accurately and emotionally as we could.”

ACTION:

There are incredible action scenes in the movie. Ones where you will be on the edge of your seat, holding your breath, and forgetting where you are. I HIGHLY suggest seeing it in 3D because it brings you even more into the action. I saw it both ways and while it’s AMAZING no matter what form you see it in, 3D is on another level.

Here’s a little peek at another action scene in the movie:

SPIDER-MAN

There is an EPIC airport scene with all 12 of the Super Heroes including newcomer Tom Holland as Spider-Man. He was everything you would want Spider-Man to be- boyish, quirky, strong, and funny. He provided great comic relief during especially intense scenes. I look forward to seeing Spider-Man again as he really was one of my favorite parts of this movie.

STRONG WOMEN- Great Movie For Fan Girls, too!

I have to say that my favorite scenes involve the ladies (Scarlett Johansson (“Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow”), Emily VanCamp (“Sharon Carter / Agent 13”), and Elizabeth Olsen (“Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch”) who really kick some butt in this movie. I love that this isn’t a guys only movie. It is totally a movie for FanGirls, too, and the strong female characters kick butt and empower women and young girls. And they look pretty amazing doing it. Don’t tell my husband but I think I have a little girl crush on Black Widow. 😉

FRIENDSHIP AND ROMANCE

No matter what side they are on, ultimately there are underlying friendships and deep love and respect for each other. They are a family but even families disagree and fight at times. Not only does this movie explore the characters on a deeper level but some of the characters’ relationships start forming on a deeper level, too. I don’t want to give any spoilers but there’s a kiss between two characters as well as the start of a definite emotional connection between two others. See, this movie has it all!

CHRIS EVANS aka CAPTAIN AMERICA (and his biceps) 

Do I even need to say more? Chris Evans told us he actually hurt his arm a little shooting this scene. I’m sure I’m not the only woman who would kiss his boo boo and make it better, right ladies?

ROBERT DOWNEY JR. aka IRON MAN

Seriously SWOONING over here for me. I’ve been a fan of Robert Downery Jr. since back in the 80’s. Yes, I’m that old. And there is a scene that will bring you right back to his younger days. But like a fine wine, I think Robert has gotten even more handsome with age. I saw him close up at the Captain America: Civil War red carpet premiere when he walked right by us.

So which side are you on?

They have a huge selection of items that you can personalize with your favorite character including your name or your child’s name. iron man mouse padDisney generously gave us each a gift card to try out the Personalization Shop. I’ve needed a mousepad for a while so I decided to get myself a #TeamIronMan themed mousepad with our event hashtag on it. I also bought myself an Avengers towel but decided not to personalize it because I’d be sharing it with everyone in my family. They had everything from cups to watches to shirts to home decor, and lots more! It was so easy to create my mousepad and personalize it how I wanted with different fonts, colors, and so many other choices. I also grabbed a Captain America shirt and Captain America Tsum Tsum for my girls. As you can see I’m outnumbered as the rest of my house is #TeamCap but I am standing firm on #TeamIronMan disney order

Agent-Carter-GFXI have a little secret to tell.  Up until my trip to Los Angeles in November I hadn’t seen a Marvel movie.  I know that many of them are blockbuster hits but they just weren’t on my list.  Truth be told in the last few years most movies I have seen have been movies my 2 daughters have wanted to see (Frozen, Big Hero 6, etc.) as hubby and I haven’t had a movie date night in YEARS.  So I wasn’t quite sure what I was in for when I was told that we’d be screening the new Marvel television series, Agent Carter.  They said it was based the character of Peggy Carter who was Captain America’s love interest.  But I didn’t even know WHO Peggy Carter was.  The whole Marvel Universe really was a mystery to me.  Luckily another blogger friend of mine gave me the 30 second versions of some of the Marvel story lines to help me understand what we were about to watch.  I got a taste of it from the screenings and I have to say I’m hooked.

What I totally thought wasn’t “my thing” TOTALLY IS!  I absolutely LOVED the clips we were shown from Marvel’s Agent Carter series that starts tonight on ABC at 8 p.m. EST.  I mean I am totally hooked!  So much so that I already started watching other Marvel movies just to acquaint myself with the Marvel Universe.  I even got my girls to watch their first Marvel movie, The Avengers, with me.  There!  My secret is out but now I can no longer say I’ve never watched a Marvel movie, I can say that I am now HOOKED on all things Marvel, especially Agent Carter!

Agent Carter premieres on Tuesday, January 6th at 8:00 pm EST with a 2-hour premiere.
It will then run for 6 weeks at it’s normal time of 9:00 pm EST for a total of 8 episodes.

HAYLEY ATWELLMARVEL’S AGENT CARTER – “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” starring “Captain America’s” Hayley Atwell, follows the story of Peggy Carter. It’s 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life – Steve Rogers. Inspired by the feature films “Captain America: The First Avenger” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” along with the short “Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter.” (Marvel/Katrin Marchinowski)

So even if you THINK Agent Carter isn’t for you, you just might change your mind after seeing some of these clips:

On our trip we had the privilege of interviewing Co-President of Marvel Studios Louis D’Esposito (also Executive Producer on “Agent Carter”) and Marvel’s Head of TV Jeph Loeb (also Executive Producer on “Agent Carter”).  They shared with us how Agent Carter went from a character in a Marvel movie to bringing Agent Carter to series on ABC.

After the Captain America movie, it was decided to tell more of Peggy Carter’s story. They  decided to go back in time and encapsulate what Peggy Carter did after the death of her love, Steve Rogers AKA Captain America and they created a one-shot based on her character.  Fans wanted to learn more about Agent Carter so it was decided to bring her to life on television in a 7 part event, Agent Carter. Jeph Loeb noted that it couldn’t be done without Hayley Atwell so she first had to be on board with the project for it to happen.   So just where in the Marvel Universe timeline does Agent Carter fit in?  Jeph explained that Agent Carter takes place about 6 months after Captain America’s death during the time that the SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve) was running and shows viewers a little bit about how S.H.I.E.L.D was formed.

Marvel knows how to empower women. They aren’t sidekicks. They are just as important.  Marvel has always believed in strong heroes, it doesn’t matter whether they are men or women, young or old, black or white. A hero comes from within. ~ Jeph Loeb

I love that Peggy Carter is a beautiful, strong female character who knows how to kick booty!  She makes being a secret agent look easy. Hayley Atwell is the perfect Peggy Carter.  She captures the audience’s attention from the first moment showing that she isn’t just a pretty secretary.  She can hold her own with the boys for sure.  So just who is Peggy Carter?  Viewers first learn about Peggy Carter as the love interest of Steve Rogers AKA Captain America.  She is left brokenhearted as Captain America plummeted to what she thought was his death. She was then featured on Marvel’s Peggy Carter one-shot (self-contained story) on the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray.  On the one shot viewers find out that Peggy is a member of the SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve) which is the precursor to S.H.I.E.L.D.  She may be an agent but the men don’t take her seriously and she ends up doing paperwork while “the boys” get to go out on the action packed cases.  One night while alone in the SSR office, Peggy intercepts a call with a tip on where to find the mysterious Zodiac.  When she single-handedly defeats Zodiac, instead of praising her for a job well done, her boss reprimands her for not following the proper protocol.  But don’t feel bad for Agent Carter.  She gets the recognition she deserves.  Howard Stark calls and tells Peggy’s boss that she will now co-head the newly created S.H.I.E.L.D.  Way to go Agent Carter!  The Agent Carter seven-part event takes place in between these two times and shows just how Agent Carter came to co-head S.H.I.E.L.D.

Tonight’s Premiere Episodes

In the pilot “Now is Not the End,” Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) is contacted by old acquaintance Howard Stark(Dominic Cooper, Marvel’s Captain America: The First Avenger) when he is framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons and can trust no one else. To help Peggy clear Stark’s name, he insists his butler, Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy,) be at her beck and call — whether she likes it or not. But the risk is great: If caught, Agent Carter could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison…or worse.

In “Bridge and Tunnel,” Howard Stark’s deadliest weapon has fallen into enemy hands, and only Agent Carter can recover it. But can she do so before her undercover mission is discovered by SSR Chief Roger Dooley (Shea Whigham) and Agent Jack Thompson (Chad Michael Murray)?

I just love all of the clothes and props from the 1940’s.  I even got to meet Hayley Atwell, tour the set, and meet with the costume designers so keep an eye out next week for that post.  It was an amazing experience.
