New Tomorrowland trailer – wow!

Payoff_-_UKIt’s one of the most interesting-sounding blockbusters of the summer – a movie based on the Tomorrowland area at the Disneyland and Disney World theme parks – but from this trailer it’s easy to see the George Clooney-starring movie is promising to be so much more than that. Secret worlds, bad guys and, of course, a good-looking hero are all in the mix – and the movie opens in the UK on May 22.

Here’s the trailer for Tomorrowland: A World Beyond…

Thunderbirds Are Go!

Thunderbirds 12 (2)

Fans of the original Thunderbirds TV series, or, indeed, the 2004 movie reboot, should  tune into ITV at 5pm in the UK on Saturday 4th April for the first episode of the new Thunderbirds TV series. It will then be shown every week at 8am on ITV and CITV.

To launch the show, Thunderbird 4 took to the waters earlier this week, cruising down the Thames in London – it was a model made of fibre glass that took a team of prop builders over six weeks to design and construct.

The series will take up the story of the Tracy family who run International Rescue, saving people across the globe, and it features the voices of Rosamund Pike, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, and David Graham as Parker.

World’s biggest bubble record broken to tie in with release of Home

World’s biggest bubble record broken to tie in with cinema release of new animated adventure Home

“There is something intrinsically amazing about bubbles”, so says Samsam Bubbleman, and he should know. While the most famous ‘bubblologist’ in Britain, if not the world, worked his magic under the gaze of the London Eye on Wednesday 18th March, children of all ages watched in awe as giant gossamer blobs floated across the sky. His attempt to beat the Guinness World Record for the largest free floating soap bubble was inspired by the release of the latest DreamWorks animation, Home, in which an intrepid band of aliens, the Boov, attempt to conquer Earth. Their technology, as it happens, is based on bubbles, which explains why your intrepid Movies4Kids reporter is standing in the freezing cold watching a grown man wave a giant sized bubble wand about.

Joining Samsam in the park to cheer him on was a group of local school children while lovable Boov misfit, Oh, also made an appearance. Encouragement, however, is all well and good, but the serious art of bubble forming requires very particular conditions – the right humidity, the right force of wind blowing in the just right direction plus an almost zen-like sense of calm.

Although the Bubbleman has been honing his skills for the past 25 years – he already holds nine Guinness World records, plus a rather impressive three Blue Peter badges, for his soapy shenanigans – a month of intensive training was needed before this record breaking attempt so that he could comfortably wield the long poles used to produce his ephemeral art forms. “They’re very heavy. You need to build up your muscles so that you can carry them.” He says. “I’ve been practising in a park near me in north London.” The practise obviously paid off. Today’s attempt had to be at least 23 cubic metres, big enough to hold an adult gray whale, to bring his tally of world records to 10. He managed an impressive 23.3 cubic metres.

His enthusiasm is certainly infectious. It’s easy to see why royals, celebrities and everyone in between have been enthralled by his creations over the years. “People’s reactions to what I do, to bubbles in general, is amazing.” He says. “That always keeps me overjoyed. To see people smile. You can see in their eyes, they’ve had 20, 30, 40 years taken off them. They could be 10 again. People miss those days when they had less to worry about and treated life in a more open minded way.”

+The record breaking bubble beat the previous record set in Massachusetts in 2013 by over 2.5 cubic metres.

+At 23.3 cubic metres, it’s the size of two family cars.

+Samsam’s other records include Most People Inside A Bubble, and Largest Frozen Bubble.

Home is released in cinemas across the UK on Friday 20th March 2015.
