Yes, we know it is Black Friday and you’re probably filling up your Amazon shopping basket full of bargains right now, but for a large group of movie fans, Friday 28th November has been marked in the diary as the day we finally get to see a glimpse of the new Star Wars movie! So sit back and enjoy this first trailer for Episode VII: The Force Awakens – as you have to wait until December 15th NEXT YEAR for the movie itself. We’re counting the days already…
PS – not sure which is cooler – that snazzy new red lightsaber or seeing the Millennium Falcon again!
￼Disney’s Frozen – aka the number one animated film of all time – is getting a seasonal re-release tomorrow – with added singing. So if you fancy joining in to ‘Let It Go’, ‘Do You Want To Build A Snowman’ and ‘In Summer’, check out your local cinema listings for details. And if it’s not playing near you, you can also buy a Sing Along edition of the movie on DVD, just in time to serenade the relatives over Christmas dinner…
Yesterday we brought you the new Jurassic World trailer and today it is the turn of two more 2015 movies (and if that’s not enough, the trailer for the new Star Wars movie is coming our way on Friday!)
First is the new DreamWorks animated movie Home, featuring the vocal talents of Rihanna, Steve Martin, Jennifer Lopez and The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons. It’s a sci-fi adventure in which Earth has been taken over by the Boov, but one banished alien named Oh (Parsons) teams up with a resourceful human girl called Tip (Rihanna) to set things right:
But that’s not the only new trailer to watch!
We also have Pan, the upcoming live action Peter Pan adventure starring a very scary-looking Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard, Garrett Hedlund as Hook, and newcomer Levi Miller as Peter:
HOME is released on March 20, 2015, and PAN is set for release next July.
It’s one of the most anticipated films of summer 2015, starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Ty Simpkins. Set 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park, Jurassic World is set on the now fully functioning dinosaur park on Isla Nublar… but something tells us that it’s not going to be that way for long…
Jurassic World opens on June 12th 2015 and here is the first trailer:
If you have been watching the news over the past week or two, you’ll know there has been quite a fuss about the new Paddington movie, which opens in cinemas on Friday (28 November). The attention has been on the cinema rating that the British Board Of Film Classification has given the movie – based, of course, on the Michael Bond books beloved by kids for more than 50 years – as instead of a perfect-for-everyone classification of U (for Universal), the film has been rated a PG.
On their website (which you can visit here), the BBFC describes a PG rating as “a film suitable for general viewing, but some scenes may be unsuitable for young children. A PG film should not unsettle a child aged around eight or older. Parents should consider whether the content may upset younger, or more sensitive, children.” (There is much more information about what warrants a PG rating on their site should you wish to see it). In a nutshell, this means that a child of any age can see a PG movie accompanied by an adult, but parents/guardians/carers should be aware that there are some scenes that could upset them.
The Movies4Kids review of Paddington will hopefully give you a clearer idea of whether Paddington is suitable for your child. Kids over the age of, say, six, should be absolutely fine, as the movie is a fun, lovely, adventure that truly captures the spirit of Bond’s books (we even get Paddington’s famous ‘hard stare’). If your child is younger, or very sensitive, there are a few moments that may upset them – Paddington is in danger a few times – and it may be a good idea after watching the movie to explain to any adventurous little ones that some of the things Paddington does in the movie SHOULD NOT be attempted at home. For example, he hides in a fridge and also slides down a long bannister – two activities that, if copied, could end up at the very least with a trip to A&E. It’s those scenes, I believe, that have led to the BBFC’s rating.
