Over the past few weeks, we’ve been enjoying watching Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. I was excited when I found out that we’d be receiving a screener copy of the disc; you may remember that I actually had the honor of walking the Thor: The Dark World red carpet and watching the film at the premier, so I was chomping at the bit for the chance to see it again.

I also was excited that everyone was going to finally get to see the movie I’d been raving about for months.  Not everyone had the opportunity to catch it in theaters, so nearly literally as soon as I carried it in the door everyone was asking when we were going to watch it.  I was anxious for them to see it and share their thoughts (and I was anxious to see Tom Hiddleston again), so I popped it in the Blu-ray player and we all sat down to watch.

Thank you to Disney/Marvel for covering my expenses so I could participate in the Tom Hiddleston interview. All words and opinions are my own.

I have to say that one of the highlights for me of our trip to L.A. was the round-table interviews.  It’s a great opportunity to see what the person behind some of your favorite characters is actually like.  And in this case, that person was Tom Hiddleston and the character was Loki.

Let me just start by saying that Tom Hiddleston is amazing.  From the moment he walked in, to the moment he walked out, he was charismatic and engaging.  He was also extremely funny.  In fact, as he sat down at the table in front of the room to introduce himself at the Thor: The Dark World bad guy Loki, he said “…um, I feel like I should be sitting here with a white cat and stroking it.” Continue reading »

I shared last week that I’m getting the trip of a lifetime, being Disney’s guest at the Thor: The Dark World red carpet premiere, followed by a chance to view the new Thor: Treasures of Asgard experience at Disneyland.  And today I want to bring you the opportunity to win your own trip of a lifetime!

For 24 hours, starting today at 12 noon EST, residents of the US and Canada can enter to win one of two family vacations for 4 to the Disneyland Resort for the October 26th opening of Thor: Treasures of Asgard.  Yep, if you win, you’ll see it even before me!  You’ll also receive 4-Day Park Tickets so you can experience all Disneyland has to offer.

To enter you’ll just need to head over to the Thor Facebook page and declare your allegiance.  Who would you travel with if you had the chance to go to Asgard: #Thor or #Loki?  Pretty easy entry, right?

Now, statistics weren’t exactly my favorite part of math in high school, but I feel like the odds for a sweepstakes that’s only open for 24 hours must be pretty good.  So hurry over after noon today and get your entry in.  I would LOVE it if one of you all won!

Will #Thor or #Loki be your entry in the Disneyland sweepstakes?

The first track of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” soundtrack is about to be released.  On August 26th “Atlas” by Coldplay will be available for purchase.  This is the first time that the multi-Grammy winning band has recorded an original song for a major motion picture.  This is in preparation for Catching Fire‘s November 22nd theatrical release.  The first partnership between Republic Records and Lionsgate yielded the Grammy-winning, chart-dominating “The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 And Beyond” featuring Taylor Swift, Maroon 5, and others.
