Disney’s Character Posters For “Christopher Robin” Will Melt Your Heart

Disney is bringing A.A. Milne’s beloved characters to the big screen on August 3rd, (Domestically) with the live action film “Disney’s Christopher Robin.”  The whole gang is on board with Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore and of course, Winnie The Pooh in what looks to be an adorable trip down memory lane.  Disney has released some fantastic character posters which you can see down below.

In the heartwarming live action adventure ‘Disney’s Christopher Robin,’ the young boy who embarked on countless adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood with his band of spirited and lovable stuffed animals, has grown up and lost his way. Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin remember the loving and playful boy who is still inside.

Christopher Robin is stuck in a job where he is overworked, underpaid and facing an uncertain future. He has a family of his own, but his work has become his life, leaving little time for his wife and daughter, and he has all but forgotten his idyllic childhood spent with a simple-minded, honey-loving stuffed bear and his friends.

But when he is reunited with Winnie the Pooh, now tattered and soiled from years of hugs and play, a spark is rekindled, and he is reminded of the endless days of childlike wonder and make believe that defined his youth, when doing nothing could be considered something. Following an unfortunate mishap with Christopher Robin’s briefcase, Pooh and the rest of the gang including Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger, step out of the forest and into London to return the crucial possessions…because best friends will always be there for you.

Mondo Announces New Board Game “Jurassic Park: The Chaos Gene”

25 years later and we are STILL in awe of the Spielberg classic, “Jurassic Park.”  Fans of the film will be thrilled to hear that the good folks at Mondo have been hard at work and have just revealed their latest venture, “Jurassic Park: The Chaos Gene” board game.  Here’s what they had to say about it.

Screen Shot 2018-07-13 at 4.39.17 PM

We’re celebrating 25 years of dinosaur chaos with our next board game – JURASSIC PARK: THE CHAOS GENE! Movie fans and board game enthusiasts can expect exciting gameplay and gorgeous artwork, featuring the immensely talented artist Matthew Woodson. The game will be available online and in stores everywhere this Fall. We’ll have the box top on display at our booth at San Diego Comic-Con (#425), and attendees will have the opportunity to get a special JURASSIC PARK patch when visiting the booth.

Taking an asymmetrical approach to the game’s playable characters and factions, JURASSIC PARK: THE CHAOS GENE is a 2-4 player adventure of varying strategies, objectives, and perspectives. While exploration of the park is at the core of each player’s motivation, the means by which separate factions achieve their goals couldn’t be more different. Through a scenario-based system, the game becomes a truly chaotic mix of modern humans and prehistoric beasts.

Heading to San Diego Comic-Con?  Head on over to their booth as they will be giving away Jurassic Park patches! These patches are free to Jurassic Park: The Chaos Gene newsletter subscribers. Sign up at thechaosgene.com.

Tony, aka, “The Birdman,” has completed a lot of accomplishments, on what many would consider, an epic bucket list.  Professional skateboarder, actor, business entrepreneur, video game mogul, skateboarding hall of fame member, the elusive and OH so difficult “900,” and foundation creator it would seem like he has done it all.  NOPE…. that is….until now.

Coming this August, The Birdman will be immortalized by the fine folks at Funko with this sensational new Pop figure.  These are highly confidential and top secret images so do NOT share… ok… if you want to… go ahead.

We are hoping that the 01 means there are more versions on the way.  Look, we NEVER want to hear that The Birdman has hung up his deck BUT…. with this gem on the way this August, I think he can look back one day and say, “I did it all….

(The album also peaked at number 3 in the official UK indie charts and number 4 in the official UK vinyl charts). ‘What The World Needs Now…’ was self-funded by PiL and released on their own label ‘PiL Official’ via Cargo UK Distribution.
