THE WALKING DEAD: SEASON 9 | Own Rick Grimes’ Final Season When Season 9 Arrives on Blu-ray™ & DVD August 20th

twd s9 tt

AMC’s #1-Rated Cable Series Returns!

3d_rgb_thewalkingdeads9_bdocrdAn iconic pop-culture character says goodbye when Season 9 of “The Walking Dead” arrives on Blu-ray™ (plus Digital), DVD and Digital August 20 from Lionsgate. New showrunner Angela Kang takes the helm as Rick Grimes prepares to make his exit from one of the world’s most popular TV series.

“The Walking Dead” Season 9 stars award winner Andrew Lincoln (Love Actually, Heartbreaker), Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, Triple 9), Lauren Cohan (All Eyez on Me, TV’s “Whiskey Cavalier,” Mile 22), Danai Gurira (Black Panther, All Eyez on Me), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen, TV’s “The Good Wife” and “Grey’s Anatomy”), and Academy Award ® nominee Samantha Morton (2003, Best Actress, In America).

Last season brought the culmination of “All Out War,” which pitted Rick Grimes and his group of survivors against the Saviors and their leader, Negan. With Negan’s life in his hands, Rick had a character-defining choice in front of him, and he spared Negan to uphold the values his late son, Carl, championed – values that created conflict within his group. Now, with our survivors rebuilding civilization under Rick’s leadership a year and a half after the end of the war, it’s a time of relative peace among the communities. However, the world they knew is rapidly changing, nature is literally taking over, and, as time passes, the communities confront unexpected obstacles and danger. But nothing can prepare them for the formidable force they’re about to encounter, threatening the very idea of civilization our survivors have worked so hard to build. The home entertainment release of “The Walking Dead” Season 9 includes multiple making-of featurettes, including a look at the memorable deaths of the season, deleted scenes, and a bonus scene. “The Walking Dead” Season 9 Blu-ray and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $80.99 and $70.98, respectively.

Award-Winning Original Series “VIDA” Earns Third Season On STARZ

AWARD-WINNING ORIGINAL SERIES

“VIDA”

EARNS THIRD SEASON ON STARZ

“’Vida’ is an important series — for representation, for diversity, for women”
– IndieWire

“It has a setting and a language that are its own, elevating a very good show to something quite vital.”
– The Hollywood Reporter

image002

Starz COO Jeffrey Hirsch announced today that the STARZ Original series “Vida” from Executive Producer and showrunner Tanya Saracho (“How to Get Away With Murder,” “Looking,” “Girls”) has been picked up for a third season.

“It is a rarity in television today to have a series earn this level of critical praise for two consecutive seasons and spark cultural conversation in the way that ‘Vida’ has,” said Hirsch. “We are proud to continue to tell this story with Tanya and the incredible cast and crew she has assembled.”

Winner of the 2019 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comedy series and earning 100% on Rotten Tomatoes for both seasons, “Vida” was created by Tanya Saracho, who executive produces alongside Big Beach TV’s Robin Schwartz, Peter Saraf and Marc Turtletaub with Stephanie Langhoff.

“Vida’s” Hispanic audience has grown 56% compared to the same period in Season 1,* giving it the highest Hispanic audience composition among premium scripted series in 2019 (Live+3).** Additionally, STARZ Hispanic subs have grown 17% since the series premiered in May 2018*** and the number of new customers who watched “Vida” season two on the app in the first seven days was almost double year over year.

“’Vida’ isn’t special only because it’s putting underrepresented American stories onscreen. It’s special because it’s doing it so well, mining the epic drama and the discrete experiences of its characters’ lives to create something that’s elaborate, distinct, and beautiful all at the same time.” – The Atlantic

In the second season of “Vida,” Lyn and Emma begin the monumental task of rebuilding their mother’s business while navigating financial constraints, competing developers, and the growing anti-gentrification movement. Lyn and Emma must contemplate the relationships in their lives, including their own, and are forced to dig deep to unearth what their mother’s legacy means to them.

“Vida” stars Melissa Barrera (“Club de Cuervos” and upcoming features In the Heights and Carmen) as Lyn, Mishel Prada (“Fear The Walking Dead: Passage”) as Emma, Ser Anzoategui (“East Los High”) as Eddy, Chelsea Rendon (Bright) as Marisol, Carlos Miranda (The Bling Ring) as Johnny, and Roberta Colindrez (“I Love Dick”) as Nico.

Senior Vice President of Original Programming Kathryn Tyus-Adair is the Starz executive in charge of “Vida.”

@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.
