@Thisfunktional at Universal Studios Hollywood’s CHRISTMAS AT THE WIZARDING WORLD OF HARRY POTTER

Written by Jesus Figueroa

Universal Studios Hollywood have prepared for their #UniversalHolidays with Christmas in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, going on now through January 6, 2019 at Universal Studios Hollywood.

Visit “Christmas in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter,”which runs daily from November 17, 2018 through January 6, 2019 for an array of changes to the already magical Hogmade.

A nightly glistening snowfall to enhance yuletide spirits falls over the main street at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter with multiple snowfalls begin at 5:15 p.m. until the park closes.

The snowfall is enjoyable as visitors of the park get the opportunity to see snow fall in Los Angeles.

It may be a brief snowfall, but it is still incredible to experience and enhances the wonder which is already a part of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

A newly introduced holiday-themed fare and the addition of hot Butterbeer, which was introduced earlier this year, at Three Broomsticks makes for a wonderful dinner before enjoying the beautiful additions to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

The a cappella Frog Choir featuring Hogwarts students entertaining guests with their harmonized holiday themed songs perform and are great to watch before The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle light show.

The music by the a cappella Frog Choir is a fabulous show which every visitor of Universal can enjoy.

The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle dazzling light spectacular goes on nightly as Universal Studios celebrates the #UniversalHolidays at about 5:40 p.m., 6:00 p.m., 6:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. (times may vary each night).

The light show at Hogwarts Castle is always breath-taking, but for the holidays it seems a bit more magical.

The Christmas time light show completes the package of Holiday treats, the video may show the light show, but there is nothing like being there in person and experiencing it first-hand.

Being surrounded by hundreds of Harry Potter fans all in awe of the brilliant show.

Then head over to the shops at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter for a wide selection of custom-made Christmas ornaments created especially for the Wizarding World.

The wonderful ornaments carry the crests of the Hogwarts houses and will go beautifully on any Christmas tree or to decorate around the house.

Visit “Christmas in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter,”which runs daily from November 17, 2018 through January 6, 2019.

SERENITY | New Trailer Released | In Theaters January 25, 2019!

IMG_4218Aviron Pictures has released a new trailer for SERENITY, a daring original thriller from Oscar nominated director Steven Knight. The film stars Matthew McConaughey as a fishing boat captain whose quiet life is shattered when his ex-wife tracks him down with a desperate plea for help. Also starring Anne Hathaway, Jason Clarke, Djimon Hounsou, Jeremy Strong and Diane Lane.

SYNOPSIS: From the creative mind of Oscar nominee Steven Knight comes a daringly original, sexy, stylized thriller. Baker Dill (Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey) is a fishing boat captain leading tours off a tranquil, tropical enclave called Plymouth Island. His quiet life is shattered, however, when his ex-wife Karen (Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway) tracks him down with a desperate plea for help. She begs Dill to save her – and their young son – from her new, violent husband (Jason Clarke) by taking him out to sea on a fishing excursion, only to throw him to the sharks and leave him for dead. Karen’s appearance thrusts Dill back into a life he’d tried to forget, and as he struggles between right and wrong, his world is plunged into a new reality that may not be all that it seems.

ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL | Official Teaser-Trailer Released! | In Theaters December 12th

IMG_4207

This December, get ready for a fairy tale that gives zero F’s.

To kick off the holiday season, the (sometimes) good guy in red is delivering the official trailer for ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL from 20th Century Fox! Audiences of almost all ages will soon be able to enjoy the Merc with the Mouth’s reimagining of Deadpool 2 filtered through the prism of childlike innocence.

“Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006,” Ryan Reynolds told Deadline. “I’ve said no since 2006. Now, this one time, I said ‘Yes’ on two conditions. First, a portion of the proceeds had to go to charity. Second, I wanted to kidnap Fred Savage. The second condition took some explaining…”

Fred Savage will join Reynolds in new scenes for ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL in an homage to Savage’s starring role in the 1987 bedtime-story classic THE PRINCESS BRIDE. Fred remarked, “while my participation in this film was anything but voluntary, I am happy to learn that Fudge Cancer will be the beneficiary of this shameless cash grab”

For every ticket sold, $1 will go to the charity Fudge Cancer – previously known as Fuck Cancer, who have graciously changed their name to be more PG-13 friendly for the 12 days of ONCE UPON A DEAD POOL’S release.


ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL
 opens in theaters for a limited engagement this holiday season from December 12 through December 24, 2018!

ARCHIE FAULKS Releases Beautiful ‘Blackout’ Video

‘BLACKOUT’
VIDEO RELEASED
WATCH HERE

Archie Faulks has shared the video for his new single ‘Blackout.’

A succession of beautifully shot abstract clips, the video conveys a surreal dreamlike ambience that simultaneously straddles both the romantic and unnerving; an ethereal visual journey into the fantastic and unsettling mind-set of an individual plagued by lonely, obsessive desire.

The song premiered on the Radio 1 ‘Chillest Show’ with Jamz Supernova in for Phil Taggart. A strong supporter of Archie, Phil previously called him “a serious talent”.
‘Blackout’ follows the release of Archie’s debut single ‘It Rains’ earlier this year. The song received support from Radio 1 and Radio X and has clocked up almost a million streams across Apple Music & Spotify.

The release led Archie to sell out his debut headline show at London’s Servant Jazz Quarters, and also saw him taken out on European tours with Rue Royale where he played three shows in Holland & Isaac Gracie where he performed four dates in Germany. He has also just played his very first live dates in the US and played two sold out shows in New York last week.

Archie will be announcing further live performances soon.

ON TOUR WITH ARKELLS THIS MONTH

Theatrical punks Felix Hagan & The Family have today released the video for new single ‘Gene Kelly’, taken from their acclaimed debut album Attention Seeker. The band have also been announced as support for the Arkells across the UK and Europe this month.

‘Gene Kelly’ is a narration of musical ambition and the video follows a story of an aspiring artist visualised in the form of animated cartoon doodles, accompanied by the track’s glorious exuberance and infectious chorus, a soaring crescendo of anthemic, feel-good catchiness.

Regarding ‘Gene Kelly’ Felix Hagan says, “Gene Kelly is my favourite track on the album. It was written about the madness that comes with doing this job for a living, and is the definitive statement of who we are as a band and what we want to give to people”.

The band will be on the road later this month, playing ten dates across the UK and Europe supporting Arkells. The UK dates commence in Bristol on November 21st and finish in Brighton on the 29th, with a date at London’s Heaven on the 23rd. Full dates can be found below.
