17-year-old Mackenzie Foy already has built an outstanding resume of work including starring roles in blockbusters Interstellar, The Conjuring and The Twilight Saga. She’s in Toronto for the first time ever today to promote her breakout starring role in Disney’s THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS and she even made time to meet some special young talents in celebration of the Film!
Donning her favourite colour purple, the Actress did the rounds today including CITY‘s Breakfast Television, Global‘s The Morning Show and CP24 Breakfast,Foy also stopped by at Union Station to visit an installation perfect for an Instagram-obsessed Toronto inspired by one of the Film’s four realms. We caught-up with Foy as she visited The National Ballet of Canada, meeting a group of students who will rotate the roles of Misha and Marie at the school’s holiday production of The Nutcracker.
Foy, herself an athlete learning Taekwondo, took her time chatting with the students asking for advice on dancing and stretching, kidding that the kids were the real deal when meanwhile she was just “the movie version”. She took a moment to hug the youngsters before heading-off to her next destination, making it a special moment for them. They will be seeing the Film shortly!
All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world. Starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy, Disney’s new holiday feature film “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” is directed by Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston, and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Mr. Will want to give Readers across North America a chance to win THE LEGO® MOVIE on DVD/Blu-Ray Combo Pack! We saw the Film back in February and it holds a special place in our heart and now we want you to experiencing how after seeing it, EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!!!! Read our Review here.
The LEGO® Movie, the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO® adventure, directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller is an original 3D computer animated story that follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO® minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.
Chris Pratt (Moneyball) stars as the voice of Emmet. Will Ferrell (The Campaign) stars as the voice of his primary adversary, President Business, an erudite, anal-retentive CEO who has a hard time balancing world domination with micro-managing his own life; while Liam Neeson (Taken) voices the president’s powerful henchman, known as Bad Cop, who will stop at nothing to catch Emmet.
Starring as Emmet’s fellow travelers are Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman (Million Dollar Baby), as Vitruvius, an old mystic; Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, Emmy nominee for 30 Rock), as tough-as-nails Lucy, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest; Will Arnett (Emmy nominee, 30 Rock), as the mysterious Batman, a LEGO® minifigure with whom Lucy shares a history; Nick Offerman (NBC‘s Parks and Recreation) as a craggy, swaggering pirate, obsessed with revenge on President Business; and Alison Brie (Community) as a sweet, loveable member of the team, with a powerful secret.

How sweet is this? After making a big splash in 2011, DOLPHIN TALE 2 soon will hit theatres this Summer. Starring Ashley Judd, Harry Connick Jr., Morgan Freeman, Mae Whitman and Kris Kristofferson, the heartwarming Sequel follows the Story of a Boy and his efforts to save a Dolphin. Aww!
It has been several years since young Sawyer Nelson (Gamble) and the dedicated Team at the Clearwater Marine Hospital, headed by Dr. Clay Haskett (Connick, Jr.), rescued Winter. With the help of Dr. Cameron McCarthy (Freeman), who developed a unique prosthetic tail for the injured Dolphin, they were able to save her life. Yet their fight is not over. Winter’s Surrogate Mother, the very elderly dolphin Panama, has passed away, leaving Winter without the only Poolmate she has ever known. However, the loss of Panama may have even greater repercussions for Winter, who, according to USDA regulations, cannot be housed alone, as Dolphins’ social behaviour requires them to be paired with other Dolphins. Time is running out to find a companion for her before the team at Clearwater loses their beloved Winter to another Aquarium.
Admit it. When you heard that a The LEGO Movie was in production you too were like, “What? How!??!”. In about three months’ time, we’re gonna see exactly how but for now here’s a taste and I must admit, it’s pretty darn adorable in this first official Trailer released today!
Directed by Chris Lord and Christopher Miller (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street), this 3-D Animated Feature boasts a stellar Cast which includes the likes of Will Ferrell, Chris Pratt, Liam Neeson, Nick Offerman, Will Arnett, Elizabeth Banks, Alison Brie, Charlie Day and Morgan Freeman.
Pratt (Moneyball) stars as the voice of Emmet. Ferrell (The Campaign) stars as the voice of his primary adversary, President Business, an uptight CEO who has a hard time balancing world domination with micro-managing his own life; while Neeson (Taken) voices the President’s powerful Henchman, known as Bad Cop/Good Cop, who will stop at nothing to catch Emmet.
Starring as Emmet’s fellow Travelers are Oscar® Winner Morgan Freeman (Million Dollar Baby), as Vitruvius, an old mystic; Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games), as tough-as-nails Wyldstyle, who mistakes Emmet for the Savior of the World and guides him on his quest; Arnett (30 Rock), as the mysterious Batman, a LEGO Minifigure with whom Wyldstyle shares a history; Offerman (Parks and Recreation) as a craggy, swaggering pirate obsessed with revenge on President Business; Alison Brie (Community) as a sweet, loveable member of the Team, with a powerful secret, and Day as the spaceman Benny.
