MID-WEEK ROUNDUP: THE PHANTOM THREAD, MIDNIGHT SUN, DESPICABLE ME 3, WOUNDED VETS SOFTBALL, GAME OF THRONES AT HBO SHOP

THE PHANTOM THREAD arrives with a new poster and trailer.

Set in the glamour of 1950’s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutantes and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love. With his latest film, Paul Thomas Anderson paints an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey, and the women who keep his world running. “Phantom Thread” is Paul Thomas Anderson’s eighth movie, and his second collaboration with Daniel Day-Lewis.
Writer/Director: Paul Thomas Anderson (“There Will Be Blood,” “Magnolia,” “The Master”)
Cast: Daniel Day-Lewis, Lesley Manville, and Vicky Krieps

MIDNIGHT SUN will Open March 23, 2018

MIDNIGHT SUN is a romantic tearjerker about 17-year-old Katie Price (Bella Thorne), sheltered at home since childhood with a rare genetic condition, a life-threatening sensitivity to sunlight.  Having only her father Jack (Rob Riggle) for company, Katie’s world opens up after dark when she ventures outside to play her guitar.  One night, her dreams come true when she’s noticed and asked out by her longtime crush Charlie (Patrick Schwarzenegger), whom she’s secretly watched from her bedroom window for years.  As they embark on nightly summer excursions, Katie’s risk to sunlight grows and she’s presented with the gut-wrenching dilemma of whether she can live a normal life with her newfound soul mate.

Despicable Me 3 and Boys & Girls Club of America Partner for “Merry Minions” Holiday Program

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment (UPHE) and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America are teaming up for a “Merry Minions” Holiday Program,  a joint venture designed to celebrate the season with help from the home entertainment release of Despicable Me 3– the biggest animated film of the year presented by Illumination and UPHE — and the iconic Minions.  Despicable Me 3 has grossed over $1 billion at the global box office and is available now on Digital and on Blu-ray™, DVD, On Demand and 4K Ultra HD on December 5, 2017.

In keeping with the holiday spirit, the “Merry Minions” Holiday Program is intended to engage Boys & Girls Club members through fun Minion-themed activities that encourage friendship, teamwork, leadership and creativity.  Participating Clubs in select markets— including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Dallas, Seattle, and others —will receive unique “Merry Minions” holiday kits containing a variety of Despicable Me 3 party, baking and craft items to help spread the holiday cheer.

During the month of December,  Boys & Girls Club kids will work together to create holiday ornaments or gift items, decorate baked goods,  design artwork inspired by the Minions, hold Minion-themed screening parties, and more. Group activities using the “Merry Minions” holiday kit elements are intended to foster the BGCA’s mission of teaching youths to be productive, caring and cooperative, themes also reflected in Despicable Me 3 and ideal for the holiday season.  Clubs will have the opportunity to turn activities into fundraising events, community service projects, opportunities for volunteer support functions, gift-giving and mentoring/teaching lessons for youths.

Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Illumination, and ​Universal Pictures Home Entertainment are committed to helping America’s youth shape their futures and celebrate the holiday season through the spirit of giving.

About Despicable Me 3
The characters beloved by everyone – Gru, his wife Lucy, their three adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions are back in this heartwarmingly subversive comedy from Academy Award®-nominated producer Chris Meledandri (Despicable Me Franchise) and directors Pierre Coffin (Despicable Me Franchise) and Kyle Balda (Minions 1 & 2, The Lorax). After he is fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down Balthazar Bratt, the latest evil mastermind to threaten humanity, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis. But when a mysterious stranger informs Gru that he has a long-lost twin brother — a brother who desperately wishes to follow in his twin’s despicable footsteps — the former super-villain rediscovers just how good it feels to be bad. Featuring the voice talents of Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Miranda Cosgrove, Steve Coogan, Jenny Slate, Dana Gaier and legendary actress Julie Andrews, Despicable Me 3 is the #1 animated film of the year and the latest chapter in the biggest animated franchise in the world.

Wounded Vets Softball on 60 Second Docs

The WWAST is comprised of veterans who have lost limbs in battle but not bravery or determination. They compete against able-bodied players around the country and extend their service by teaching amputee children to play sports and conquer their circumstances. With their inspiration and motivation, they want to show others that life without a limb is limitless.
