A DOG’S PURPOSE is in theatres Friday, May 17, 2019.
Little Monsters follows Kindergarten Teacher Miss Caroline (Lupita Nyong’o) and her class on a trip to a local Australian zoo. What the class, herself and unenthused chaperon Dave (Alexander England) soon realize, is that they are trapped there and being hunted by zombies.
Writer-Director Abe Forsythe has created a Genre-Comedy that could be an instant hit. The comedic timing of everyone involved, both behind and in-front of the camera, is perfect. The Script is tightly-written and offers ample amounts of wit. Nyong’o excels and we get a range we haven’t seen prior from the Oscar winner. England is unbelievably-funny in his cluelessness as an uncle of one of the the kids. Josh Gad also is fantastic as a popular child TV Programme Host, who isn’t so kid-friendly in person.
Little Monsters screens at Sundance on Jan 27 at 11:59PM at Library PC, Jan 29 at 2:30PM at The MARC PC, Jan 30 at 11:45PM at Egyptian PC, Jan 31 at 12:30PM at The Ray PC, and Feb 2 at 11:59PM at Tower SLC.

We love PAC-MAN! In celebration of our favourite Video Game icon’s 35th Birthday on May 22nd, major celebrations around the World will be held with free plays of the Video Game, Birthday Cake and Celebrity Guests! In case you weren’t aware, he will also be appearing in eagerly-awaited Blockbuster PIXELS, which was filmed in our City last Summer!
As kids in the 1980s, Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), Will Cooper (Kevin James), Ludlow Lamonsoff (Josh Gad), and Eddie “The Fire Blaster” Plant (Peter Dinklage) saved the world thousands of times – at 25 cents a game in the video arcades. Now, they’re going to have to do it for real. In Pixels, when intergalactic aliens discover video feeds of classic arcade games and misinterpret them as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth, using the video games as the models for their assaults – and now-U.S. President Cooper must call on his old-school arcade friends to save the world from being destroyed by PAC-MAN, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede, and Space Invaders. Joining them is Lt. Col. Violet Van Patten (Michelle Monaghan), a specialist supplying the arcaders with unique weapons to fight the aliens.
All 75 Dave & Buster locations across North America will be partaking in the fun in offering free plays on the oversized PAC-MAN BATTLE ROYALE to all guests who have a Power Card. There also will be opportunities to win thousands of dollars all Summer long!
Celebrations will be held in Chicago, Tokyo, Paris, Spain and UK. For more details, visit here.

Sony Pictures release THE WEDDING RINGER on January 16, 2015 right in-time to cure those post-Holiday blahs!
It may have taken a while for the World to discover him, but Stage, Voice and Film Actor Josh Gad really is on the up-and-up in the land of Hollywood. Shortly after getting a TONY Award nomination for his work as Elder Cunningham in acclaimed The Book of Mormon on Broadway, he was Cast as Olaf the lovable Snowman in Disney‘s 2013 Runaway Box Office Smash, Frozen.
Gad currently is in Toronto and to be here through end of Summer filming Home Alone Director Chris Columbus’ latest effort, Pixels. The part-animated/live action Flick stars Peter Dinklage, Michelle Monaghan, Kevin James and Producer Adam Sandler. The Film sees a group of Experts called upon to thwart an attack of New York City by Video Game Characters!
We by chance spotted Gad out with his lovely Wife Ida Darvish earlier this afternoon unexpectedly!He was super-nice as expected and the response from lucky Fans who’ve spotted him around town MuchMusic Video Awards weekend, has been unanimously positive! The Couple were later seen hauling a dolly of groceries from Whole Foods walking along unassumingly as Onlookers struggled to figure why it is he looked so familiar!
This of course isn’t the Funnyman’s first time in Toronto, having filmed star-spawning The Rocker here in 2008 opposite Rainn Wilson. The World would see the likes of Emma Stone, Bradley Cooper, Christina Applegate, Will Arnett, Jason Sudeikis, Jane Krakowski, Jane Lynch and more go-on to see significant profile boosts soon after.
2014 looks to be a big year ahead with a couple more Films on the way for Gad including Zach Braff‘s much-publicized Kickstarter Film Wish I Was Here (soon to be released in Canada via eOne Films) and also The Wedding Ringer opposite red-hot Kevin Hart!
Sony Pictures’ Pixels is slated to film in the City till early September. We popped by the Set a couple weeks back to check it all out! More here.
