About Monster University
Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer—and he knows better than anyone that the best Scarers come from Monsters University (MU). But during his first semester at MU, Mike’s plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, “Sulley” (voice of John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer. The pair’s out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University’s elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, they realize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to make things right. Screaming with laughter and oozing with heart, Disney•Pixar’s “Monsters University” is directed by Dan Scanlon (“Cars,” “Mater and the Ghostlight,” “Tracy”), produced by Kori Rae (“Up,” “The Incredibles,” “Monsters, Inc.”) and features music from Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and award-winning composer Randy Newman (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Toy Story 3”).

Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful wizard but into a better man as well.
About Disney’s Fantasy Adventure: OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL (in Digital 3D)
Mingle Media TV and Red Carpet Report host, Kristyn Burtt, were invited to come out and cover the Hollywood premiere of the inspiring Disney Channel Original Movie "Let It Shine," the classic Cyrano de Bergerac story re-imagined and set in the contemporary world of hip-hop, rap and gospel music at the Director’s Guild of America. Geared towards kids, tweens and families, the movie carries themes of self-expression and self-determination – and an impressive soundtrack.
The movie was directed by Paul Hoen and written by Eric Daniel and Don D. Scott. "Let It Shine" is slated to premiere on June 15, 2012 on the Disney Channel.
From Academy Award®–winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes “John Carter”—a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). “John Carter” is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.

“LECCIONES PARA UN BESO”
The film “Lecciones para un beso” from the young Colombian director Juan Pablo Bustamante is a romantic comedy that premiered in movie theaters in his native country and broke broke box office records. The film tells the story of Alejandro’s life, a teenager in Bogota who is forced to move to Cartagena where his mother decides to open a restaurant. There, he falls in love with María, a stunning young girl, and intends to try everything possible in order to give her a kiss. Inexperienced in love, Alejandro asks three clients in his mother’s restaurant for help — a romantic, a liar and a materialist — to teach him how to win María over. The men accept not only to help the boy, but they also make a bet among themselves to see whose advice ends in the kiss.
“LECCIONES PARA UN BESO”
“Lecciones para un beso” is a story that for 100 minutes engages the audience in a plot that light-heartedly mixes romance, lies and money! The film was shot in over 20 locations in the historic district of the city of Cartagena de Indias, Colombia and received a grant for the ‘Cómo se Cuenta un Cuento’ [“How to Tell a Story”] workshop dictated by Gabriel García Márquez and Fernando León de Aranoa, at the International School of Film and Television in San Antonio de los Baños, Cuba.
TalleresUchawi produces Colombian independent films dedicated to the creation of audiovisual works that combine artistic and commercial elements with quality universal stories. One of the documentaries shot by this production house, Cartagena de Indias: Una historia de cinco elementos, won first prize at the Third Exhibition of New Artists at the 43rd Edition of the Cartagena Film Festival and has sold over twenty-five thousand copies.
I’ve always loved Eddie Murphy – through good and bad. From Saturday Night Live to his many movies from Beverly Hills Cop, 24 Hrs, Nutty Professor, stand-up comedy, music and to his upcoming movie Tower Heist.
From music to standup to action, Eddie has entertained us on TV, movies and live on stage and got a 2006 Oscar nomination for “Dreamgirls” for a supporting actor role (see clip below).
We’re excited to see what he brings to the 84th Academy Awards show.
… from the official press release: Murphy began his career at the age of 15 as a stand-up comedian. In 1980, at the age of 19, he joined the cast of “Saturday Night Live,” becoming the show’s youngest cast member to that point, and bringing to life many of the show’s most memorable characters. His 1983 album “Eddie Murphy: Comedian” won a Grammy Award for Best Comedy Recording. It included portions of his groundbreaking HBO special “Eddie Murphy Delirious.” In 1987, “Eddie Murphy Raw” was theatrically released and went on to gross over $50 million. Murphy made his feature film debut in 1982 with the classic “48 Hrs.” and would go on to star in such box-office hits as “Beverly Hills Cop” and the “The Nutty Professor” and “Shrek” franchises. All told, movies in which he has performed have earned in excess of $7 billion worldwide during their theatrical releases.

Jillian Clare, ITVFest Best Actress 2011 Award Winner
Meet Jillian Clare (star and executive producer of the teen series Miss Behave and Haley Ferguson from the Emmy nominated Nickelodeon movie Freak the Freak Out) who has just joined the cast of the feature film, THE KITCHEN.
Jillian has a lot to celebrate this year with her recent nomination in the best actress category at the International Television Festival for her teen series MissBehave, which was also an Official Selection of the Festival and then winning Best Actress in a Drama at the ITVFest.
Jillian’s new role in THE KITCHEN, which is a comedy about a girl’s ill-fated 30th birthday party, where she plays Nikki – a friendly and flirtatious ditz who has an inner logic that somehow makes sense. Jillian’s on-screen boyfriend is played by Adam Chambers (“Night of the Living Dead 3D: Re-Animation”) and other cast members include Laura Prepon (“Lay the Favorite,” NBC series “Are You There Vodka, It’s Me Chelsea”) and Bryan Greenberg (HBO series “How to Make it in America”). The film is directed by Ishai Setton (“The Big Bad Swim”), written by Jim Beggarly (“Free Samples”), and produced by Emily Ting (“Family Inc.”).
We’ve talked to Jillian on several occasions after meeting her on the red carpet and we’re excited to see her continue to grow and succeed in both traditional and digital media. We’re also looking forward to seeing what happens in Season Three of her multi-award winning teen drama Miss Behave which is gearing up for filming later this year.
