Following the loss of his family in a shipwreck, Pi struggles to survive with the tiger in a lifeboat on a perilous voyage across the Pacific.


“Epic” in 3D is lifted from pages of “The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs” starring the voices of Amanda Seyfried, Josh Hutcherson, Colin Farrell, Steven Tyler, Beyonce Knowles, Christoph Waltz and Pitbull. Directed by Chris Wedge from the worldwide hit “Ice Age” series, “Epic” follows a girl who has been magically transported into an unknown deep forest revealing a hidden world unlike any other. “Epic” tells the story of a battle raging all around us between the forces of good, who protect nature, and the forces of evil, who wish to see it destroyed. When a teen age girl finds herself magically transported into this secret universe, she must band together with a rag-tag team of fun and unique characters to save their world…and ours.

In a previously undiscovered era known as the Croodacious – we find the Crood family when Mother Nature was still experimenting and the flora and fauna we know today hasn’t evolved yet. The Crood family, led by Grug (voiced by Academy Award® winner Nicolas Cage), an over-protective father who, like all dads, is doing all he can to hold his family together at a time when cataclysmic changes are happening. Together with his wife (Catherine Keener), kids (Emma Stone and Clark Duke) and ornery mother-in-law (Cloris Leachman) in tow, Grug guides his family through this spectacular environment, full of amazing creatures, to find a new cave to call home. Along the way, they encounter Guy (Ryan Reynolds), an imaginative and resourceful newcomer who takes risks and wholeheartedly embraces the promise of tomorrow.


“Turbo” tells the story of an ordinary garden snail who goes for his impossible dream to become the greatest racer in the world. Turbo, the ultimate underdog who is obsessed with speed and all things fast has made him an oddity and outsider in the slow and cautious snail community. When a freak accident gives him extraordinary speed, Turbo sets out to try to make this dream come true. “Turbo’s” all-star voice cast includes Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena, Ken Jeong, Michelle Rodriguez, Snoop Dogg and Samuel L.

"The World from the Side of the Moon" by Phillip Phillips

This is a debut album from season 11 American Idol winner, Phillip Phillips. The album includes Phillip's coronation song, "Home". Phillip Phillips began writing songs with collaborators and recording rough tracks for the album before the American Idol Tour began in July 2012. He collaborated with David Ryan Harris on "Tell Me a Story", which he described as his favorite song in the album and the one he is most proud of. Other songwriters he collaborated with include Greg Holden and Drew Pearson who wrote his coronation song "Home". After the success of this song, Phillips indicated that the album will have a couple of songs similar to "Home". He wrote with his brother-in-law Benjamin Neil "Drive Me", a song he had originally wanted to be his coronation song. His girlfriend Hanna Blackwell also contributed


lines to the lyrics on the bonus track "Take Me Away". All but three of the tracks on the main album were written or co-written by him, with four of the songs he wrote himself. The album title, The World from the Side of the Moon, come from the lyrics of the first song on the album, "Man on the Moon." Phillips described it as the experience of watching himself in a
DVD of the whole Idol season someone gave him, "so I was kind of watching myself from a whole different world that no one else really knows. It’s interesting to see how it happened and so fast. That's how I picked the title: I felt like I watched myself grow and this whole album is representing where I am."

Eric Bana’s Darkest Hour in “Deadfall”

Eric Bana was first introduced to American audiences in the title role of Mark “Chopper” Read in the feature film Chopper, which premiered at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival and was then released in the U.S. to critical notice after its Australian success. Bana earned awards from the Film Critics Circle of Australia and the Australian Film Institute for his portrayal of Chopper.


Bana was seen co-starring in Ridley Scott’s Black Hawk Down as Delta Sergeant First Class Norm “Hoot” Gibson, one of a group of elite U.S. soldiers, opposite Josh Hartnett, Ewan McGregor and Tom Sizemore.

Shortly thereafter, Bana starred as the title role of Bruce Banner in Hulk for director Ang Lee and Universal Pictures, based on the Marvel Comics character. He was also featured as Hector the Prince of Troy in Warner Bros.’ Troy. The following year, he starred in Steven Spielberg’s critically acclaimed Munich, about the aftermath of the 1972 Munich Olympics.


In his new film "Deadfall" marks one of Eric Bana's darkest roles in recent memory. In the film, he plays Addison, a heist man who just robbed a casino with his sister (played by Olivia Wilde) near the Canadian border. But when their car is totaled in a blizzard, the two are forced to split up, leading Addison on a murderous rampage as he tries to make the border.

The role required an actor that could paint in shades of grey, who could bring a subtle approach to a mercurial, brutal character. “We were aware that we needed a brilliant actor,” says director Ruzowitzky, “to show these many layers that are in that character, that it’s not a one layer thing, that it’s all on one tone, but all these different sides we see of him.”

Fortunately, Eric Bana read the script and immediately took to the challenge: “Initially my agent thought I was going to be interested in playing Jay more than Addison, but it was Addison that drew me in,” explains Bana. “This is a very dangerous character and I was immediately drawn to the complexities of playing him.”


“I don't think it was the dark and twisted part of the character that attracted me, I just think it was a really well written script with really well detailed characters. I don't think I had that many questions for [screenwriter] Zack Dean and [director] Stefan Ruzowitzky after I read the script. Sometimes you read a script and you have a million questions and notes, and I just felt it was so well written that I didn't have any. I think that's the thing that attracted me more so than the fact that it's dark. I know that's always fun, but essentially it was just how good the dialogue was and the structure.”


“He’s a very complicated, screwed-up guy,” Bana continues. “Someone who, on the surface, completely has a handle on himself and his sister. As the story progresses, and as our movie heads towards the final act, we discover that he's someone who's not really in as complete control as he would like to believe.”

“Everything about the film felt cool,” enthuses Bana. “The script was one of the coolest things I’d read in a long, long time – if not the coolest thing I’d ever read. The character
was a wonderfully unique opportunity for any actor, so I was very aggressive about clinging on to that opportunity and just doing everything I could to make sure that the film got made.”


‘Deadfall’ is released and distributed by Crystalsky Multimedia Showing on December 5. Nationwide

This weekend, tickets went on sale for Taylor’s two July RED Tour stops at Foxborough, Mass.’s Gillette Stadium, with the back to back stadium shows selling out in just 5 minutes.

On Friday, Taylor sold out three stadiums: Toronto’s Rogers Centre (sold out in 5 minutes), Detroit’s Ford Field (sold out in 10 minutes), and Chicago’s Soldier Field (sold out in 25 minutes), as well as arenas in Los Angeles (2 shows in 1 minute), Washington DC (2 shows in 5 minutes), Atlanta (2 shows in 5 minutes), Miami, Tampa, Columbus, San Diego and Sacramento. Tickets for Taylor’s two August shows in Kansas City also sold out over the weekend.

Taylor Swift’s The RED Tour will now include 11 stadium stops, for a total of 62 shows in 45 cities in 29 states and 3 provinces in 2013.  A complete listing of tour dates, including future onsale information, is available at www.taylorswift.com.

Last night, Taylor brought home her 11th career American Music Award, winning Favorite Female Artist (Country) for the fifth consecutive year. Just a week earlier, Taylor won three European Music Awards, taking top honors for Best Female Act, Best Live Act, and Best Look.

The fan response to Taylor’s RED album and tour has been matched by the project’s critical acclaim, with the album earning rave reviews from critics around the globe. Just this weekend, Vanity Fair dubbed Taylor “officially the new Mick Jagger,” calling her international chart-topper “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” “the year’s best pop song.” VF asks, “Who is more interesting in pop right now?” and praises Taylor’s “hooks and insouciance,” lauding her music as “canny and knowing.”

She is Billboard’s youngest-ever Woman of the Year, and her more than 100 industry award wins have included the American Music Awards’ Artist of the Year, the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of the Year and three European Music Awards.

Taylor’s two most recent albums are two of only 18 albums in the entire history of music to sell more than 1 million copies in a single week. She has had singles top both the country and pop radio charts around the globe, and has thus far scored 11 #1 singles across multiple radio formats. She is one of the top 5-selling digital music artists worldwide, and is the top-selling digital artist in country music history.

“LIFE OF PI” A GAME-CHANGING 3D FROM ANG LEE - Starts January 9 2013 in (local) Cinemas

Academy Award winning filmmaker Ang Lee (“Brokeback Mountain,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”) brings to life Yann Martel’s bestselling tome “Life of Pi” in 3d – seamlessly combining CGI and reality into an integrated whole, making it hard for the audience to discern between what is real and animated.

Filmed in India and Taiwan, Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi” team - actors and crew have been doing the rounds in various parts of the globe this last quarter of 2012 to introduce a story that was first thought of as unbelievable and ‘unfilmable.’ Lee creates a groundbreaking movie event about Pi, a young man who survives a disaster at sea and is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While cast away, he forms an amazing and unexpected connection with another survivor, a fearsome Bengal tiger named Richard Parker.

The book, as Yann describes in the first few pages is emblematic of his hunger at a time when he needed direction and purpose for his life. Just like Martel, the book and movie’s protagonist Pi, goes through a transformational journey. The role of Pi, played by newcomer Suraj Sharma never intended to audition who just accompanied his brother at the casting call, was ultimately chosen by Ang Lee’s team among more than 3,000 hopefuls for the lead role. Prior that point in his life, Suraj had been living like a normal teenager. “I was really nervous, especially during the final audition,” he recalls. “I was actually shaking. I talked to Ang for five minutes and he’s got this thing about him: Whoever’s around him, somehow you get really calm. So Ang calmed me down, and we did the scene. I wasn't really happy with what I did because still I had this little bit of nervousness. Ang talked to me for ten minutes, and we did the scene again. I don’t know what happened, but it was pretty much the best work I had done through all the auditions. Everyone in the room looked really happy.”

Likewise, Lee admits that “Life of Pi” is a personal transformational journey for him as well. Known for his fearless helming of new territories, Lee’s movies span all genres making ripples of hits out of challenging materials presented to him. “Life of Pi” is Lee’s first foray into 3D filmmaking, which he envisioned for this story long before “Avatar” hit theaters. He uses that tool to expand the scope of the film, immerse us in Pi’s physical journey, and envelop us in the story’s emotional hold. “I wanted the experience of the film to be as unique as Yann Martel’s book,” says Lee, “and that meant creating the film in another dimension. 3D is a new cinematic language, and in LIFE OF PI it’s just as much about immersing audiences in the characters’ emotional space as it is about the epic scale and adventure.”

“We searched for a young man who had the innocence to capture our attention, the depth of character to break our hearts, and the physicality needed to embody Pi on his journey,” says Lee. He also marvels at Suraj’s innocence and efforts, noting, “We are all experienced and perhaps a little jaded. Suraj reminded us why we want to make movies. Every day was a miracle.”

In telling Pi’s story, Mr. Lee pushes the boundaries of cutting-edge motion picture technologies. LIFE OF PI represents a moment when the science and art of filmmaking have jumped forward, as it did with the visual effects of “Titanic,” the 3D revolution of “Avatar,” and the CGI work in “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” which brought unprecedented emotion and depth to the character of Caesar. And like Caesar, LIFE OF PI’s Richard Parker is a fully-realized, accessible character, whom you’ll believe was actually on that lifeboat with Suraj.”

“Life of Pi” opens this January 9 across the nation from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

Jude Law is the wicked bogeyman Pitch in ‘Rise of the Guardians’

Jude Law is considered one of Britain’s finest actors, with a wealth and variety of film and theater performances to his credit.


Law will star opposite Keira Knightley in Joe Wright’s “Anna Karenina.” Last year, he reunited with Guy Ritchie and Robert Downey Jr., on “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,” reprising his role from the global boxoffice success “Sherlock Holmes”. In his new animation film in DreamWorks Animations he plays evil entity known as Pitch.

“The Guardians represent hope, joy, wonder and dreams,” producer Christina Steinberg notes. “If Pitch is able to take them out, they will literally cease to exist. The attributes they represent would be gone from the world and fear would reign.”

The way Pitch attempts to do that is by corrupting one of the Guardians’ tools. “He has a huge amount resentment for being shoved under the beds for hundreds of years,” says actor Jude Law, who gives voice to Pitch. “He figures out a way to take the Sandman’s dream sand – the positive, pure golden sand that gives everyone happy dreams – and twist it into nightmares (which take the form of amorphous black stallions subject to Pitch’s command), creating fear within children.”


And by design, the manner in which he operates is quite compelling, director Peter Ramsey says.

“We thought a lot about the way fear works in the real world, and the logic behind it. If you think, ‘I want to go outside, but there are some clouds in the sky and that means it might rain. If it rains, I might get a cold. If I get a cold…’ Pretty soon you’re not going outside and you’re missing all the best stuff in life because you let your fear snowball into something unhealthy. Fear shuts down your world. So we knew that we wanted a character that was alluring and could falsely convince you that being afraid was the only thing that made sense.”


Steinberg agrees. “These iconic characters needed a worthy opponent. Peter, Bill Joyce, David Lindsay-Abaire and I spent a lot of time talking about our favorite villains in past movies. We all loved the feeling we had watching ‘The Wizard of Oz’ when we hid behind our bedroom doors, peeking our heads out to watch the Wicked Witch of the West. She was scary, but exciting and charismatic at the same time. We wanted to bring that dynamic to Pitch as well. So, he’s not a terrifying, moustache twirling villain. He has a lot of personality. He’s wicked, funny and smart.”

Lindsay-Abaire adds, “There’s a human side to Pitch, as well. Like our hero, Jack Frost, Pitch is a lonely soul who simply wants to be believed in. Unfortunately, he thinks the way to make that happen is through fear and intimidation.”


“When Jude Law’s name came up for the role, everybody’s bells just went off,” Ramsey says. “We listened to his voice in combination with some animated tests and we knew we had the right casting. Pitch moves through shadows. He moves on the edges of what you can see. Jude’s voice has this beautiful quality to it – we call it ‘the velvet touch of Pitch’ – and you just want to listen to it forever even when it’s telling you these terrible things.

“Pitch’s story is pretty compelling,” Ramsey continues. “He’s a guy who’s been on the bottom for a long time and who has now found a way to strike back and take power for himself. Jude has been able to flesh out the nuances of this character’s many layers. It’s a magnificent thing to listen to – the hair literally stands up on the back of your neck.”


“The voice casting was, no pun intended, pitch perfect,” executive producer Guillermo del Toro says. “Jude brings fragility, refinement, intelligence and cunning – a lot of stuff that is beyond the lines – to his character. There’s a sense of isolation and loneliness in Pitch that is all Jude’s doing.”

‘Rise of The Guardians’ is released and distributed by United Intl. Pictures through Solar Entertainment . Corp.

Chris Pine as Jack Frost in ‘Rise of the Guardians’

Chris Pine who has emerged as one of Hollywood’s hottest young actors, is currently shooting “Jack Ryan,” slated for a December 2013 release, assuming the mantle of the Tom Clancy action hero previously portrayed on film by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck. This holiday season Chris Pine provides the voice of the character of Jack Frost , a ghostly blue and white 14-year-old boy with no memory of his past apart from waking up one night floating in a frozen lake.
“They know Jack as a troublemaker, as this immature kind of guy,” says director Peter Ramsey, and by all appearances, he is. Jack is a 300-year-old prankster in a 17-year-old body, with the power to create frost, wind and snow. Happiest when he’s causing havoc, controlling winter with a swing, tap or touch of his staff, to him, a successful day is measured by how many snowballs he’s thrown, how many windows have been fogged and how many schools have closed after it’s been declared a snow day. He has no responsibilities, no one to answer to, and ultimately, at least in his mind, no purpose.
“That bothers him,” says Ramsey. “Other than knowing that his name is Jack Frost, he doesn’t know anything about himself, much less what he’s meant to do in this world. To make matters worse, no one can see him and, unlike the Guardians, no one believes in him, so he’s kind of a loner and an outsider.”
To play the role of Jack, Ramsey and the “Guardians” team knew they had to find an actor that could demonstrate the conviction of a leading man – in many ways, “Guardians” is Jack’s story – but who could also be playful and vulnerable to express Jack’s range of emotions in the film. They found what they were looking for in actor Chris Pine.
“We loved Chris in ‘Star Trek,’” says Ramsey. He’s exciting and smart. That comes through as soon as you see him on-screen. He’s got a twinkle in his eye that can be heard in his voice. He’s a leading man with energy, charisma and a sense of fun – all the qualities that Jack Frost has.”
For his part, Pine gravitated to the role because of Jack’s plight.
“One of the journeys of this film is how Jack finds a home, friendship, community and a sense of purpose,” he says. “Jack will instigate snowball fights, desperately wanting kids to have fun but also wanting them to know that he’s the guy behind it, that he’s reason that they’re having a good time. Jack’s quest – to have connections with others and to find the answer to what are we put on this Earth to do – is something that’s so very human.”

Homemade food still best for tots, says Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan

Many busy moms nowadays have no time to prepare nutritious baby food. But when opting for store-bought bottled food, moms are not assured of the freshness and quality of these mixes, and that is why homemade food are still the better choice, says mother of five and Philips Avent brand ambassador, Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan.


“I am very particular when it comes to feeding my children. While there are many respectable brands of bottled baby food in the market, I still believe that nothing compares to homemade food that has been greatly thought out and considered for baby’s particular needs,” Maricel explains.

Me-Ann Achacoso, Philips Avent’s Business Development Manager for Health and Wellness, agrees. “The modern Filipina mom is hands-on and busy. That’s why Philips Avent’s Combined Steamer and Blender is the perfect ally for moms who want to ensure that their baby gets only the freshest and most nutritious food without having to sacrifice time in food preparation,” says Ms. Achacoso.


Ms. Achacoso adds that the Philips Avent Combined Steamer and Blender lets moms craft quick and healthy meals for baby. Its built-in steamer helps lock in food’s nutrients and natural flavors and with the flip of the steamer and blender, moms can instantly make fine purees to soft and small pieces of food that baby can consume for the different stages of weaning.

She adds that if moms don’t have time to prepare food, they can choose to make this ahead of time by storing the pre-made meals into Philips Avent’s Via Cups range which are ideal for storage in the refrigerator or freezer.

Ms. Achacoso concludes, “Creating your own baby food with the Combined Steamer and Blender promotes a healthy bond between parents, siblings and baby. You are also assured that you are giving your baby meals that contain natural vitamins and minerals without the harmful chemicals.”

Black Tuesday: Mourning the Death of Freedom of Speech, A Protest Against Cyber Martial Law

REPOST from previews article.
Philippine Internet Freedom Alliance (PIFA)
The Philippine Internet Freedom Alliance (PIFA), made up of different organizations, netizens, and blogger, came together Tuesday to uphold freedom of expression and protest the recently signed Cybercrime Prevention Act or, as netizens call it, Cyber Martial Law. The group, carrying plain black placards and taping their mouths with black electrical tapes,
held a silent protest in front of the Supreme Court, in time for the en banc session.
“The Cybercrime Law is undemocratic and has negative implications on the have d right to
free speech and privacy. The Cybercrime Law is testing our country – whether we’re truly a
democracy or just a democracy on paper. It is then fitting the some dubbed it ‘cyber martial
law,’ Red Tani, president of Filipino Freethinkers, an organization part of PIFA said.
“Forty years ago, when Marcos declared martial law, we faced a similar test. I hope it doesn’t
take us as many years – or casualties – to get through this one,” Kenneth Keng, also of FilipinoFreethinkers, added.
To date, five TRO’s have been filed at the Supreme Court. Included are those from Sen. TeofistoGuigona III, UP College of Law professor Atty. JJ Disini, businessman Louis Biraogo, ALAMparty-list, and a group of journalists, bloggers, and lawyers including Alexander Adonis, Ellen Tordesillas, Gisela Cascolan, Harry Roque, Rommel Bagares and Gilbert Andres. PIFA will also be submitting another petition for the TRO of the Law on October 8. Among the points of the petition include: the law as a violation of the right to privacy, as a violation to equal protection, and as a violation to free speech.
“As members of the online community, we are stakeholders in the passage of the law. We
do not want the Data Privacy Act and the Cybercrime Prevention Act to be amended just so
our stakes can be inserted in either. A fresh start is required in order to embrace the online
community,” Ime Morales, founder of the Freelance Writers’ Guild of the Philippine said.
“It is ironic that while we are commemorating the 40th year since the declaration of Martial
Law and crying ‘Never again!, this law, which curtails freedom of speech, has been signed.
Real democracy allows the right to free speech as it is fundamental in people’s participation
in governance. Enacting this law is the death of the right,” said Ayeen Karunungan, council
member of Dakila – Philippine Collective for Modern Heroism, an artist organization also part of PIFA.
An online black-out was also called by the group for people who can’t come to the protest but
who want to support the cause and have the means to do so online.
PIFA is an open alliance for all organizations and individuals against the Cybercrime Prevention Act and is currently composed of the following organizations and individuals: Freelance Writers’ Guild of the Philippine, Filipino Freethinkers, Dakila – Philippine Collective for Modern Heroism, Coalition for Reform, Partido ng Masa, Kabataan Party List, Bukluran Manggagawang Pilipilogger and editor of Blog Watch Noemi Lardizabal-Dado, gender and ICT advocate Nica Dumlao, and bloggers Carlo Ople and James Miraflor. Other organizations and individuals who support the cause may join PIFA.
