November 15, 2013 was a pretty momentous day for Gotham City as thousands gathered to cheer on five year old “Batkid” Miles who, as part of a Make-A-Wish Foundation event, saw San Francisco transformed into the DC Comics city. Donning a cape and cowl, five-year-old Miles took on the Penguin, saved a damsel in distress and was presented with the key to the city. thanks to an intense outpouring of spontaneous support reverberated around the world. Now, Miles’ story comes to the big screen in the new documentary, Batkid Begins, which has today released its trailer.

Miles’ wish and this role as a little caped crusader resonated so deeply with filmmaker Dana Nachman that she was inspired to explore what happens when a small scale event aiming to fulfill one wish goes unintentionally viral, ultimately revealing surprising truths about what happens when someone inspires our society in a digital age.

Batkid Begins was directed by Nachman, who also produced the documentary with Liza Meak. The film was written by Nachman & Kurt Kuenne (Batkid Begins). Ian Reinhard & John Crane served as executive producers.

Batkid Begins hits theaters June 26, 2015.

526398_10152724037805265_1677838374_n

So you waited in line for hours only to miss out on that LEGO Comic-Con exclusive set and they are all sold out. You can either hunt one down on eBay and pay hundreds of dollars or choose the clever alternative, Constructibles.

Based in Orange County, California this family owned business locates the genuine LEGO pieces from hard to find sets, includes the building instructions and sells the boxed sets for an affordable price.

I discovered Constructibles at Bricks LA and found the owners to be helpful and friendly. The carry a wide array of retired LEGO sets, LEGO mini builds, reproduction Comic-Con exclusive sets and their own designs.

I ended up picking up a retired New York Comic-Con Star Wars Luke’s Landspeeder for $28 that would sell for over $100 online. I could care less that it didn’t include the official box or tin as I tend to never use or display them.

Other cool sets that Constructibles sells are the hard to find and very desirable Classic TV Batmobile, Rocket Raccoon’s Warbird and Boba Fett’s Slave 1.

Olive Garden Announces Breadstick Sandwiches Coming This Summer

1

Starting June 1, 2015 Olive Garden patrons will be able to order chicken parmigiana or meatball sandwiches made with their popular breadsticks.

“We’re always looking to evolve our menu,” explains Olive Garden spokeswoman Jessica Dinon. “We’re always bringing on new items, and right now we’re really taking those dishes our guests know and love and giving them more ways to enjoy it. Obviously people love our breadsticks.”

The sandwich breadsticks will be wider, to accommodate the filling. But other than that size change, the recipe and taste will stay the same, says Dinon. Diners will still receive an unlimited supply of breadsticks with their sandwiches, just as they do with any other selection on the menu, along with soup or salad.

MONDO To Release Mad Max: Fury Road Soundtrack & Posters On May 15, 2015

To celebrate the return of the Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy), and director George Miller’s post-apocalyptic world of metal on metal carnage in Mad Max: Fury Road (in theaters May 15), MONDO is excited to unveil the original motion picture soundtrack in a gorgeously packaged vinyl album and two glorious screen prints.

The vinyl comes with two interchangeable covers with artwork by Boneface featuring Max and Fury Road’s big bad, Immortan Joe. Boneface also contributed a character-focused screen print, which nicely complements Killian Eng’s hellish landscape portrait, featuring an armada of menacing vehicles. The posters will go sale along with a pre-order for the vinyl at MondoTees.com on Friday May 15, 2015.

“The artists had a lot of fun with this one. George Miller’s iconic production design in the Mad Max films has been injected with nitro for Fury Road. His visionary world offered a kaleidoscope of visually arresting characters, vehicles and landscapes for Boneface and Killian Eng to play in. We were honored for the chance to work on one of our most anticipated films of the summer,” said MONDO CEO Justin Ishmael.

Mad Max: Fury Road Original Score

Composer Junkie XL utilized the movie’s vast landscape to explore a diverse range of musical territory, from beating drums to sweeping strings and electric guitar-driven operatic themes, utilizing nearly 200 instruments. “The score includes almost everything in a composer’s arsenal. The instrumentation ranges from big, brutal percussion and an 80-voice choir, with string sections and musical sound design, and everything in between. I used anything I could get my hands on.”

Junkie XL (Tom Holkenborg) has built a reputation on musical experimentation. The Grammy-nominated multi-platinum selling producer and composer’s versatility puts him on the cutting edge of contemporary music, as well as at the vanguard of film composition.  Junkie is able to draw on his extensive knowledge of classical forms and structures while maintaining a connection with popular music. His recent film credits include Divergent, 300: Rise of an Empire, and Run All Night. Junkie XL’s upcoming projects include Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Warner Bros. Point Break, inspired by the classic 1991 hit film of the same name, releasing December 25, 2015. He is teaming with Oscar® winning composer Hans Zimmer for Batman v. Superman, providing the music for Batman with Zimmer composing the score for Superman in the film. Junkie XL has collaborated with Zimmer on several projects including The Amazing Spiderman 2, Man of Steel, Shark Tale, and one of the highest-grossing films of all-time, Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. He is also currently creating new themes for EA Sports’ prestigious NFL video game franchise Madden ’16.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Trailer

CE-wgcBUMAEcDVF.png-large

The CW offered a first look at their “The Flash”/”Arrow” spinoff, “Legends of Tomorrow,” with a trailer that shows new and returning heroes in action, including the debuting Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee), the newly renamed White Canary (Caity Lotz) and the Atom (Brandon Routh), who finally unveils his long-awaited shrinking technology.

Scheduled to premiere as part of the network’s midseason lineup, the eagerly anticipated “Arrow”/”The Flash” spinoff also stars Wentworth Miller as Leonard Snart/Captain Cold, Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory/Heat Wave, Victor Garber as Professor Martin Stein (one-half of Firestorm) and Arthur Darvill as time-traveler Rip Hunter. Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin briefly appear as Arrow and the Flash in the trailer as well.

Here’s the official synopsis for “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”:

When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat — one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known? DC’s Legends of Tomorrow stars Victor Garber (“The Flash,” “Alias”); Brandon Routh (“Arrow,” “Superman Returns”); Arthur Darvill (“Doctor Who”); Caity Lotz (“Arrow”); Ciarra Renee (“Pippin”); Franz Drameh (“Edge of Tomorrow”); with Dominic Purcell (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”); and Wentworth Miller (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”). Based on the characters from DC Comics, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” upcoming “Pan”), Marc Guggenheim (“Arrow,” “Eli Stone,” “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Eli Stone,” “Warehouse 13”) and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” upcoming “Pan”).
