“The LEGO Movie™ 4D A New Adventure” has officially opened at LEGOLAND Florida Resort.

Saludos amigos, recientemente tuve la oportunidad de estar en el preestreno del nuevo corto The Lego Movie 4D A New Adventure y les puedo decir que esta fantástico este película ofrece a la audiencia muchos efectos especiales, show de luces, agua, humo y mas... ademas de una simpática interacción de parte de la audiencia, estoy seguro que sera  del agrado de toda la familia. Por cierto que estuvieron presentes muchas celebridades invitadas de las cadenas de Disney Channel y Nickelodeon que fueron parte de la gran sensación de la noche.
No dejes de incluir Legoland Florida Resort en los planes de tus próximas vacaciones, te va a encantar!

Joining the festivities were 8-year-old actress Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, star of ABC TV’s “Modern Family,” Joey Bragg, star of Disney Channel’s “Liv and Maddie,” Jack Griffo, star of Nickelodeon’s “The Thundermans,” singer-songwriter Megan Lee, star of Nickelodeon’s “Make It Pop,” Isabela Moner, star of Nickelodeon’s “100 Things to Do Before High School,” Jace Norman, star of Nickelodeon’s “Henry Danger,” Madisyn Shipman, star of Nickelodeon’s “Game Shakers,” and social media sensations The Eh Bee Family and Family Fun Pack.
The resort built for kids staged an appropriately kid-centric world premiere, punctuated by twin blasts of glittering confetti that welcomed the Master Builder heroes back to the big screen. Hundreds of fans strolled an “interactive,” special effects-filled red carpet before entering the Wells Fargo Fun Town Theater to celebrate the return of Emmet, Wyldstyle, MetalBeard, Benny and Unikitty.

In 2014, kids around the world embraced the adventures of Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the key to saving the world in “The LEGO Movie™,” which went on to gross more than $400 million worldwide.

But what happened after the movie?

Fans can find out starting on Jan. 29, now that “The LEGO Movie™ 4D A New Adventure” has officially opened at LEGOLAND Florida Resort.

Returning to voice their iconic characters are actors Elizabeth Banks (Wyldstyle), Nick Offerman (MetalBeard), Charlie Day (Benny) and Alison Brie (Unikitty). Actor, writer and comedian Patton Oswalt voices the scheming Risky Business, brother of movie villain President Business, a new character created exclusively for the attraction.

Set after the events of the movie, the 12 ½-minute story finds the gang entangled in an Evil Secret Plot involving a mysterious theme park inspired by their adventures in “The LEGO Movie,” one that requires them to call on the Master Builder skills of a surprise ally to save the day.

“The LEGO Movie™ 4D A New Adventure” was directed by Rob Schrab, who is making his feature film directorial debut with “The LEGO Movie Sequel,” set to open May 18, 2018. When it came to designing the attraction, he said a strong story was critical to its success.

“We only spotlight them for a fraction of the amount of time,” he said, “so it’s important to get to the fun as soon as possible. This is the first time Emmet, Wyldstyle and the gang meet since the film.”

Developed in collaboration with LEGOLAND owner Merlin Entertainments Group and Warner Bros. Consumer Products, the attraction was created by Los Angeles-based Pure Imagination Studios with input from Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the talented writer-directors who brought “The LEGO Movie” to hilarious life, along with producer Dan Lin.

The result is a delightfully clever blend of the same sly humor and breathtaking, built-with-LEGO visuals that made the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO film a global hit among kids and adults alike.

For Offerman, the opportunity to slip back into MetalBeard’s shoes – er, bricks – was a welcome one.

“I have worked with Rob on ‘Childrens Hospital’ and ‘Parks and Recreation,’ so it was like a nice reunion of old pals from summer camp,” he said of making the attraction. “We just tried to make each other laugh with silly renderings of dead-serious pirate-y mayhem.”

Following its debut in Florida, “The LEGO Movie™ 4D A New Adventure” will open Feb. 6 at LEGOLAND California Resort in Carlsbad, Calif., and at all other LEGOLAND theme parks and LEGOLAND Discovery Centers worldwide in 2016.

Sin dudas que esta pelicula no puedes dedejar de agregarla a tu coleccion.


Una joven sobreprotegida por su millonario padre abandona la seguridad y cuidado que este le brinda por una vida sencilla junto a un atrayente aristócrata en una remota finca inglesa en Crimson Peak, un thriller  sumamente inquietante y de impactantes imágenes del guionista y director Guillermo del Toro (El laberinto del fauno, Hellboy), que se estrena en Digital HD el 26 de enero de 2016, y en Blu-rayCombo Pack, DVD y On Demand el 9 de febrero de 2016, de Universal Pictures Home Entertainment y Legendary Pictures. Un desarrollo visual brillante e inolvidable y una atmósfera embebida en temor hacen de Crimson Peak una película de misterio y terror elegante, hermosamente realizada y totalmente original que fue catalogada de “obra maestra” por Fox-TV.  El Blu-rayCombo Pack cuenta con más de una hora de material adicional que revela algunos de los aterradores secretos que se esconden detrás de las puertas de la siniestra Allerdale Hall. 

De la imaginación del director Guillermo del Toro llega una obra maestra de romance gótico protagonizada por Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, saga de películas de Thor), Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty, The Help), Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland, Stoker) y Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim, serie de FX “Sons of Anarchy”).

  • Yo recuerdo Crimson Peak:  Una serie de entrevistas con el director Guillermo del Toro y su destacado reparto: Mia Wasikowska, Tom Hiddleston y Jessica Chastain.

  • Manual básico de romance gótico: Con su conocimiento enciclopédico y su pasión por el género, Guillermo del Toro rastrea la historia del romance gótico en el cine. Usando Crimson Peak como base, Del Toro bosqueja la historia del terror cinematográfico e identifica las diferencias entre los sustos tradicionales y el terror de categoría. 
  • Los fantasmas escarlatas: La premiada compañía de efectos especiales DDT habla sobre el enfoque de Del Toro sobre los efectos de maquillaje. En este segmento, ofrecen un vistazo exclusivo al interior de su taller, donde explican la creación de los efectos con prótesis más perturbadores de la película.

De los creadores de E.T y el autor de Charlie and the Chocolate Factory y Matilda llega...The BFG!

The BFG (Mark Rylance), while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24-feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and Fleshlumpeater (Jemaine Clement) on the other hand, are twice as big and at least twice as scary and have been known to eat humans, while the BFG prefers Snozzcumber and Frobscottle. Upon her arrival in Giant Country, Sophie, a precocious 10-year-old girl from London, is initially frightened of the mysterious giant who has brought her to his cave, but soon comes to realize that the BFG is actually quite gentle and charming, and, having never met a giant before, has many questions. The BFG brings Sophie to Dream Country where he collects dreams and sends them to children, teaching her all about the magic and mystery of dreams. 

Having both been on their own in the world up until now, their affection for one another quickly grows. But Sophie’s presence in Giant Country has attracted the unwanted attention of the other giants, who have become increasingly more bothersome. Says Spielberg, “It’s a story about friendship, it’s a story about loyalty and protecting your friends and it’s a story that shows that even a little girl can help a big giant solve his biggest problems.” Sophie and the BFG soon depart for London to see the Queen (Penelope Wilton) and warn her of the precarious giant situation, but they must first convince the Queen and her maid, Mary (Rebecca Hall), that giants do indeed exist. Together, they come up with a plan to get rid of the giants once and for all. 

Directed by three-time Academy Award® winner Steven Spielberg (“Bridge of Spies,” “Schindler’s List,” ”Saving Private Ryan”) from a screenplay by Melissa Mathison (“E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial,” “The Black Stallion”) based on the best-selling novel by Roald Dahl, “The BFG” stars three-time Tony Award® and two-time Olivier Award winner Mark Rylance (“Bridge of Spies,” “Wolf Hall”), newcomer Ruby Barnhill, Penelope Wilton (“The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” “Downton Abbey”), Jemaine Clement (“Rio 2,” “The Flight of the Conchords”), Rebecca Hall (“The Gift,” “Iron Man 3”), Rafe Spall (“The Big Short,” “Prometheus”) and Bill Hader (“Inside Out,” “Trainwreck”). The film is produced by Spielberg, Frank Marshall (“Jurassic World,” “The Bourne Ultimatum”) and Sam Mercer (“Snow White and the Huntsman,” “The Sixth Sense”) with Kathleen Kennedy (“Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Lincoln”), John Madden (“The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” “Shakespeare in Love”), Kristie Macosko Krieger (“Bridge of Spies,” “Lincoln”), Michael Siegel (“Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “Rise of the Guardians”), Frank Smith and Naia Cucukov serving as executive producers. 

Roald Dahl’s “The BFG” (Big Friendly Giant) was first published in 1982 and has been enchanting readers of all ages ever since. Dahl’s books, which also include “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “James and the Giant Peach” and “Matilda,” are currently available in 58 languages and have sold over 200 million copies worldwide. Originally created as a bedtime story, “The BFG” was Dahl’s own favorite of all his stories. “It was very important for us to be loyal to the language,” says Spielberg, “and the great writer Melissa Mathison, who also wrote ‘E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial,’ wrote ‘The BFG.’”  

“The BFG” opens in U.S. theaters on July 1, 2016, the year that marks the 100th anniversary of Dahl’s birth.

A heroic action-thriller, “The Finest Hours” is the remarkable true story of the most daring rescue mission in the history of the Coast Guard. Presented in Digital 3D, Real D 3D and IMAX® 3D, the film will transport audiences to the heart of the action, creating a fully-immersive cinematic experience on an epic scale. On February 18, 1952, a massive nor’easter struck New England, pummeling towns along the Eastern seaboard and wreaking havoc on the ships caught in its deadly path, including the SS Pendleton, a T-2 oil tanker bound for Boston, which was literally ripped in half, trapping more than 30 sailors inside its rapidly-sinking stern. 

As the senior officer on board, first assistant engineer Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck) soon realizes it is up to him to take charge of the frightened crew and inspire the men to set aside their differences and work together to ride out one of the worst storms to ever hit the East Coast. Meanwhile, as word of the disaster reaches the U.S. Coast Guard station in Chatham, Massachusetts, Warrant Officer Daniel Cluff (Eric Bana) orders a daring operation to rescue the stranded men. Despite overwhelming odds, four men, led by Coast Guard Captain Bernie Webber (Chris Pine), set out in a wooden lifeboat with an ill-equipped engine and little, if any, means of navigation, facing frigid temperatures, 60-foot high waves and hurricane-force winds.

El Atraco una obra maestra del reconocido autor Daniel Silva.

– El estilo magistral de Daniel Silva ha producido otra obra maestra de suspenso y espionaje. El legendario agente secreto, Gabriel Allon, personaje recurrente en sus novelas, regresa en esta ingeniosa trama de intriga internacional, en la que el lector viajará junto con Allon a través de Venecia, París, Córcega, Londres y más ciudades europeas —con escalas en Tel Aviv—mientras el avezado espía, también restaurador de arte, se lanza a la búsqueda de una importante pintura del siglo XVII robada décadas atrás.

Daniel Silva forja una palpitante historia de espionaje y arte en «El atraco»

Allon recibe una llamada que lo saca de la romántica Venecia en donde se encuentra trabajando en un retablo y lo lleva hasta una elegante villa en el lago Como, sitio del extraño y macabro asesinato de un traficante de arte robado. A cambio de limpiar el nombre de uno de sus amigos involuntariamente involucrado en el caso, un general italiano pide a Allon que encuentre al responsable, lo que deberá llevarlo también al anónimo comprador de una de las obras de arte más buscadas, el Caravaggio llamado «Natividad con san Francisco y san Lorenzo».

Para lograr resolver el asesinato y recuperar la pintura, Gabriel debe idear un atrevido plan, y para que éste tenga éxito, debe conseguir que todos sus elementos funcionen con la precisión de un reloj. Deberá echar mano de viejos amigos y ocasionales aliados. Repentinamente, mientras lleva a cabo su meticuloso plan, su búsqueda sorpresivamente le abre la oportunidad de dar un golpe mortal a los recursos financieros de uno de los más importantes y despiadados tiranos de Medio Oriente. Deberá hacerse de la ayuda de una valiente mujer, pieza clave en su operación, y quien ha sufrido dolorosas pérdidas en manos de los gobernantes de su país de origen.

«El atraco» reúne a Allon con el más calificado equipo de espías de «La Oficina» —el Instituto de Inteligencia y Operaciones Especiales, mejor conocido como Mossad— en una carrera contra el tiempo, un sincronizado operativo para descubrir, rastrear y despojar las cuentas bancarias secretas, ocultas en paraísos fiscales y ciudades europeas, desde las que se maneja la gran riqueza turbiamente acumulada por una familia de dictadores responsables de miles de muertes violentas.

Con la pericia de un especialista en su materia, Daniel Silva se interna en el submundo del tráfico de arte, así como en los tejemanejes orquestados por los grandes intereses criminales, políticos y económicos, de los que los acontecimientos que se vuelven noticia apenas si muestran una sombra. Silva hace aquí y allá uso de eventos históricos para dar mayor peso a su extraordinariamente «tejida» trama de suspense con una agilidad que mantiene al lector pegado a las páginas.

Daniel Silva no solo nos descubre el mundillo de la cuarta actividad delictiva más lucrativa del mundo, sino que en ocasiones utiliza el arte de la pintura para describir a sus personajes, comparándolos con cuadros o técnicas de los grandes Maestros. El humor tiene presencia en las figuras divertidas que emplea para describir a ciertos individuos.

Desde el infortunado vendedor de arte que siempre termina en líos propiciados por otros, hasta la aparentemente indefensa mujer siria, seria y melancólica, que se juega la vida al trabajar para un pariente de quien acabó con su familia, pasando por el general con un ojo postizo que parece verlo todo, Silva presenta una colección de personajes pintorescos que dejan su impronta en la mente del lector.

En «El atraco», el autor incluso revela sorprendentes aristas de Gabriel Allon, el talentoso artista devenido en asesino y espía, al dejar al descubierto algunos de sus temores, sus preguntas internas y, aun más sorprendentemente, un aspecto blando de su alma. Un breve episodio que empuja al personaje a su pasado permite ver que no se trata más que de un ser humano, hábil e inteligente, pero atenazado por recuerdos y dolor.

Una lectura cautivante que deja la sensación de vivir en un mundo aparente, en el que los acontecimientos notables no son lo que parecen, mientras toda una serie de hechos obscuros, negociaciones por lo bajo y actividades secretas parecen ser la normalidad que solo unos pocos elegidos tienen el privilegio de conocer o incluso, provocar.

Descrito como «profesional de clase mundial en ficción espía» (Washington Post), Daniel Silva es el galardonado autor de best sellers número uno del New York Times como «Juego de espejos», «La marca del asesino», «The Marching Season», «The Kill Artist», «The English Assassin», «El confesor», «El hombre de Viena», «Prince of Fire», «The Messenger», «The Secret Servant», «Moscow Rules», «The Defector», «The Rembrandt Affair», «Portrait of a Spy», «The Fallen Angel», y «The English Girl».

Flores Cortadas, una excelente historia de suspenso psicológico que debes de leer hoy.

Karin Slaughter hace brillar el thriller psicológico en su nueva obra
Saludos amigos, por aca les comparto un par de nuevos titulos de parte de mis amigos de Harpers Collins...excelentes libros para disfrutar de una maravillosa lectura,

La pluma maestra de Karin Slaughter, renombrada y premiada autora de suspenso, ha producido una escalofriante historia, enmarcada en una tragedia que carcome la vida de una familia, y que veinte años después todavía tiene el poder de sacudir sus almas, revelando, sin embargo, un camino a la reconciliación con el pasado, demasiado doloroso, y que parece seguir extendiendo sus garras en el presente.

La trama de «Flores cortadas» presenta a dos hermanas, Claire y Lydia, que no se han dirigido la palabra en años, separadas por un incidente que nunca llegaron a superar. Claire aparentemente lo tiene todo para ser feliz: Un esposo millonario que se desvive por ella, una hermosa casa y un físico envidiable; Lydia, por su parte, como madre soltera con un novio expresidiario, lucha para salir adelante día a día, tratando de dejar atrás su pasado de adicciones.

En «Flores cortadas», Slaughter magistralmente interna al lector a mundos disímiles y a mentes atormentadas por el dolor, descubriéndonos como cada corazón trata con el dolor de forma diferente, utilizando lo mejor que puede los recursos de su alma. Explora las consecuencias de las desapariciones al interior de la familia, exponiendo casi en carne viva la brutal lucha entre la desesperación y entereza, entre la resignación y la esperanza, y cómo ésta define las relaciones y las decisiones.

La cautivante fuerza narrativa de Karin Slaughter, los personajes tan definidos por su dolor, y los giros inesperados con los que la autora reviste esta historia, hacen brillar el género del thriller psicológico, capturando al lector desde el inicio con una especie de flashbacks que se desprenden de un diario, y que le invitan a averiguar más, a querer desentrañar, junto con Claire y Lydia, el destino de su amada hermana, de quien guardan cálidos recuerdos, sepultados tras años de tristeza y sospecha.

Nutrida de referencias culturales actuales y de la década del ochenta (en la que Slaughter ha situado los acontecimientos que desencadenan la trama), la novela envuelve no solo por su narrativa, sino por la familiaridad de sus descripciones, creando un entorno cálido y amable, para luego contrastar fuertemente las emociones al presentar hechos desgarradores y siniestros.

En «Arrancada», la historia previa con la que la autora corona el libro, el lector se sumerge además en la mente y la perspectiva de Julia, un colofón perfecto, que nos revela el corazón de la adolescente y su lucha por denunciar un mal que sigue aquejando a nuestra sociedad posmoderna.

HarperCollins Español llevará a Karin Slaughter a la FIL 2015 (Feria Internacional del Libro de Guadalajara), en donde presentará su obra, «Flores cortadas», y firmará ejemplares, el 30 de noviembre en el stand de la editorial Porrúa.

Es una de las escritoras de suspenso y ficción policíaca más afamada y galardonada del panorama literario actual. Mundialmente aclamada por su potencia narrativa y consagrada por sus repetidas apariciones en la lista de best sellers del New York Times.
