Behind-the-Scenes Look at P!nk’s Cover of “White Rabbit” for Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass

Alice Through the Looking Glass Poster

Have you any idea why a raven is like a writing desk? Disney has released a brand new Alice Through the Looking Glass poster and some pretty exciting behind-the-scenes footage of P!nk’s cover of “White Rabbit”! She will also be writing and recording an original song that will be heard in the movie, which is set to hit theaters this May!

Alice Through the Looking Glass returns Alice back to the world of Underland and back in time to try to save the Mad Hatter. Watch the extended trailer here:

Starring many of our favorite voices, Alice Through the Looking Glass reunites Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska, Matt Lucas and Helena Bonham Carter and introduces new characters played by Rhys Ifans and Sacha Baron Cohen. Also back are the talented voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall, Barbara Windsor and Paul Whitehouse, and they are joined by Toby Jones.

I cannot wait to see this movie, the 2010 Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorites!

Oz The Great and Powerful : March 8th!

Oz The Great and Powerful is one movie that I’m ridiculously excited for!  Oscar Diggs (played by James Franco) is a small time circus musician with questionable ethics. When Oscar is hurled into the Land of Oz, his dreams of fame and fortune are extinguished as he is drawn into the epic problems that face the people of Oz. The witches – played by Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, and Rachel Weisz (one of my all-time favorite actresses) are not convinced that Oscar is the wizard everyone thinks he is, and Oscar must utilize his magical arts, ingenuity, and wizardry to become a better man, and The Wizard of Oz!

First of all, I’m in love with the casting done on this film – I absolutely love Rachel Weisz, and can’t wait to see James Franco as Oscar! Plus the costumes and design of the film looks breathtaking. While Oz The Great and Powerful doesn’t hit theatres until March 8th, I’ve included two of the movies posters (one above, and one beneath) and the trailer for your viewing pleasure!

As excited as I am??? Check out the movie site, facebook, and twitter to stay on top of new updates and exclusive content!!!

Welcome to Hotel Transylvania!

This past week Shawn and Juliet (my little brother and sister, for those of you who don’t know) were one of the few lucky kids who were invited by The MOMs to attend an advance screening of fall’s new hottest family film- Hotel Transylvania! And at the end of the film, we were all treated to an exclusive Q&A with the voice of the bride of Frankenstein – Fran Drescher!

Yummy after-school snacks that were waiting for us at the screening :)

Now, I grew up with the nasal -er- dulcet tones of Fran Fine ringing in my ears. In fact, I didn’t even have to guess which character Fran was voicing- I knew it the minute the big-haired, blue-skinned, bride of Frankenstein appeared on the screen. And being the awesomest older sister ever, I’ve gladly shared and cultivated proper Fran Fine fans in Shawn and Juliet – that way they were equally excited when they heard they were going to get to meet her in person!

Now for the movie. Dracula, owner of Hotel Transylvania – a lavish resort dedicated to providing a safe haven to monsters- has invited all his monster friends (hello invisible man, Frankenstein, the blob, and other classic scaries) to celebrate his daughter Mabel’s 118th birthday. However, Dracula’s plans to keep Mavis safe from the human world go awry when the hotel is visited by Jonathan – a human, who’s unlike anything Dracula ever expected.

I have to say, Hotel Transylvania is one of those adorable films that you just can’t wait for it to come out on DVD so you can add it to your home movie collection. It was like Father of the Bride met the Halloween section in Party City, and had a movie love child. It was cute, it was funny, it was heartfelt, and it was wildly entertaining. Shawn and Juliet loved it and are demanding to see it again when it hits theaters.

After the movie, we had a chance to talk to Fran. She was so nice (and yes the voice is real) – and had a lot to say about making Hotel Transylvania, as well as her Cancer Schmancer non-profit and the Trash Cancer movement- an initiative started by Cancer Schmancer designed to support people in cleaning their home of toxins and cancer-causing agents. I don’t know about toxins, but I was having The Nanny flashbacks involving Fran, Mr.Sheffield, Sylvia, Grandma Yetta, and Gracie.

Shawn, Juliet, and I had such a great time and absolutely LOVED Hotel Transylvania! We’re seriously going to go see it again- we all gave it a five star review, so be sure to head to your local theater and see it yourself – you’ll love it! Hotel Transylvania opens the weekend of September 28th.

*Disclosure: I was invited to the advanced screening of Hotel Transylvania by the lovely Melissa and Denise of The MOMs. No other compensation was provided.

Feature Film Friday: Jaws (1975)

I love old school movies. My mom taught me at a young age to appreciate old films, and especially classics like Jaws. Probably the most quintessential of summer films, Jaws has always been one of my favorites and as soon as the weather warms up I put in some popcorn, pop in my DVD, and commence being terrifically entertained by a 25 foot great white . Despite it’s now dated look, it’s one of those movies everybody has seen, or at least should. Basically, It’s a Wonderful Life is to Christmas what Jaw’s is to Summer.

Jaws, for those of you who don’t know, is about a small island community named Amity that’s being terrorized by a massive shark. Roy Scheider plays new sheriff Martin Brody, who sets out to stop the beast despite pressure from local businesses- you know, they make their living off of visitors during the summer season, so what’s a few dead people in between friends? When a young boy becomes the next victim of the predator, a bounty is put up for the beast. Brody, old (and creepy) local fisherman Quint, and marine scientist Matt Hooper set out to stop the great white.

Memorable Jaws Quote:

I don’t want no volunteers, I don’t want no mates, there’s just too many captains on this island. $10,000 for me by myself. For that you get the head, the tail, the whole damn thing.

- Quint, Jaws (1975)
