Summer Movie Excitement

WOW there is a lot going on these days in the movie world. I’m sure you have all seen the excitement over how well Avengers Infinity War is doing in theaters, and you all know about Solo: A Star Wars Story coming out at the end of this month. I wanted to share a few little “extras” with you that you may not have heard about or seen, so let’s take a peek!

First up, Disney Nature’s all-new film PENGUINS is coming out just in time for Earth Day next year, and a trailer has been released! Check out this synopsis and the trailer below:

Disneynature’s all-new feature film PENGUINS is a coming-of-age story about an Adélie penguin named Steve who joins millions of fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family.  None of it comes easily for him, especially considering he’s targeted by everything from killer whales to leopard seals, who unapologetically threaten his happily ever after.”

As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside the Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from the past.”

So much to look forward to in the next couple of months! Which movie are you most excited about? Have you seen Infinity war yet?

 

An Incredible Sequel

My daughter is a huge fan of the Incredibles. We have about 3-4 movies we watch on repeat currently, and this is one of them. Thankfully it’s one of the ones I enjoy! She loves the action, the laughs, and the good guys vs. the bad guys.

 

When I told her a new Incredibles movie was coming out this summer, she was super excited and now asks me all the time if we can watch it yet (I guess I didn’t think that one through. Three year olds don’t have the best concept of time.) Anyway, I did explain what this new movie was about, and I thought I would type it out for you all, too:

“In INCREDIBLES 2, Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose super powers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.”

Aahhh I can’t wait! Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think!

 

 

Incredibles 2 is coming to theaters June 15th. Will you be going to see it?

WOAH! So much packed into just a couple of minutes. In the trailer did you spot Hulk, Black Widow, Iron Patriot, Dr. Strange, Gamora, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Captain America, Black Panther, Okoye, Shuri, Star-Lord, Drax, Rocket Raccoon, Thor, Groot and Loki?

Black Panther Now in Theaters

It’s here! It’s here! Marvel’s Black Panther is now in theaters everywhere! We have been waiting on this one for awhile folks, and it’s going to break some records!

Here is the lowdown:

“After the death of his father, T’Challa returns home to the African nation of Wakanda to take his rightful place as king. When a powerful enemy suddenly reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king — and as Black Panther — gets tested when he’s drawn into a 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.”

Pretty awesome right? Here are some fun facts about the film:

-The cast and stunt team practiced with African drums played by musician Jabari
Exum so that their movements would have a musical quality found in many
African-based martial arts.

-The cast did the bulk of the fight work that will be seen on film. Chadwick
Boseman, whose skill set includes a comprehensive martial arts background,
knew what he was in for when he and all the other actors had to attend a “boot
camp” to prepare them for the physical aspects of their roles.

-The majority of the Wakanda sets were constructed on sound stages at
Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, including the Tribal Council; the Wakandan Design
Group, Shuri’s hive of research and development of the vibranium rich country;
the ancient subterranean Hall of Kings; and most notably Warrior Falls, the
ceremonial heart of Wakanda’s revered traditions.

-Over 25,000 cubic feet of foam was used in the Warrior Falls set, which was
sculpted to match the rocks in Oribi Gorge in South Africa.

-The production team engineered a fully functional flowing waterfall and pool at
the ledge of the cliff with six large submersible pumps feeding over 125,000
gallons of temperature-controlled water piping up through the set at a rate of
30,000 gallons per minute before recirculating through the system.

Hood to Coast Movie

 

Awhile back, I was contacted and asked to review the Hood to Coast movie. I have of course heard of Hood to Coast from people who have run it, seen the film, etc. I did not get a chance to see it in theaters so I was excited to have this opportunity. Not going to lie, I knew the BASIC idea of the race but not all of the logistics and I went from thinking this was the type of thing I would never want to do, to thinking how much FUN it would be to participate in a fun relay like this!

bluray_lg

Here is a little info about the film:

The character-driven documentary HOOD TO COAST takes a celebratory look at
personal motivation and the kind of people just crazy enough to push
themselves to attempt the extraordinary. The film offers a compelling human
interest story as it follows four unlikely teams of people of all ages and
backgrounds on an epic adventure to conquer the 197 miles of the world’s
largest relay race.
Some run to test their personal limits, some to overcome personal obstacles, and
others leap in blindly looking for a way to shake up a complacent life. For the 67
year old heart attack victim attempting to conquer the race that almost killed her,
the broken-hearted family in mourning, the determinedly un-athletic but joyfully
artistic team of animators, to the aging jocks who still know how to have a good
time, the journey, however far it takes them, is the prize. Each year over 1,000 teams cover the grueling miles as a relay, putting
themselves through an arduous physical journey that as an individual would be
impossible. For the last 30 years, Hood To Coast has attracted not only the
world’s elite runners, but an even more fascinating array of amateur
adventurers.  Each year the 197 miles of the course is transformed into a
“Woodstock on wheels”, a roadtrip that allows each person a transformative
personal journey.  The stories are reminders that no matter who you are, you can
push yourself beyond what you thought your limits were.

Check out the movie trailer below for a sneak peak:

This is the kind of film you just have to see to understand. It follows four teams of all abilities through their race journey. I laughed, I cried, I was INSPIRED. It’s one of those things that sounds awful but at the same time would feel AMAZING to accomplish!

There are now 1,000 teams (12,000 runners) that participate in Hood to Coast. They cover 197 difficult miles from Mt. Hood down to the ocean. 12 people per team run three legs each, divided up into two vans for the race. Some run in honor of a loved one, some run for fun, others, to win. Whatever the story, I enjoyed watching this motivational film that truly captures the idea of teamwork and hard work. My favorite part was how at the end, the entire team ran across the finish line with the person running the last leg. It just gave me goose bumps! There are also tons of amazing bonus features on the second disk that you won’t want to miss.

You can purchase the movie yourself or get more info on the film’s website. Also be sure to follow @hoodtocoast on twitter.

All of the excitement of this race has me considering doing one of my own…

rougeorleans

The Rouge Orleans 126.2 is coming up in February and it looks like SO MUCH FUN! It’s the same concept as hood to coast except it’s 126.2 miles from baton Rouge to New Orleans and it’s teams of 6 people. So, who wants to join me? I need five more people! (well, 4 if I can convince my husband to join in if I can’t get enough!) I’m serious!!!

QOTD: Have you ever run a relay like this? Would you ever consider it? Why or why not?
