Marvel Music Presents “Captain America: Civil War” Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Featuring Music By Henry Jackman

Marvel Music Presents "Captain America: Civil War" Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Featuring Music By Henry Jackman

Marvel Music Presents “Captain America: Civil War” Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Featuring Music By Henry Jackman

Marvel Music’s Captain America: Civil War original motion picture soundtrack will be available in physical and digital formats on Friday, May 6, 2016.  The soundtrack features music composed and produced by Henry Jackman (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Captain Phillips” and “Big Hero 6”).  Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016.

Jackman recorded the score at London’s Air Lyndhurst Studio and also serves as Soundtrack Producer.  The Executive Soundtrack Producers include Anthony & Joe Russo, Kevin Feige, Nate Moore and Dave Jordan.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Emily VanCamp, Marisa Tomei, Tom Holland, Frank Grillo and Martin Freeman, with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl.

Anthony & Joe Russo are directing with Kevin Feige, p.g.a. producing. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee are the executive producers. The screenplay is by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely.

‘The Jungle Book’ Unleashes A Mighty 3D Roar At The Box Office

Disney’s extraordinary 3D adventure film The Jungle Book, directed by Jon Favreau captivated audiences and brought a mighty roar to the box office as the exhilarating motion picture generated approximately 43% of its domestic opening weekend gross on 3D equipped screens. RealD 3D accounted for an estimated $31 million of the weekend’s total $103.6 million domestic box office.

“The Jungle Book takes fans on a magical journey, and through the latest state-of-the-art technology, RealD 3D helped transport audiences to the lush imaginary world that director Jon Favreau truly envisioned when making the film in this enhanced visual format,” said Anthony Marcoly, President of Worldwide Cinema at RealD. “This is the kind of entertainment that was made to be seen in 3D on a big screen. Congratulations are richly deserved by the filmmaking team and our friends at Disney for delivering such an extraordinary 3D moviegoing experience.”

3D motion pictures continue to drive excitement at the worldwide box office.

A Heroes’ Welcome: Pizza Hut Gives Marvel Fans Power To Choose A Side With New Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” Promotion

A Heroes' Welcome: Pizza Hut Gives Marvel Fans Power To Choose A Side With New Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War" Promotion

A Heroes’ Welcome: Pizza Hut Gives Marvel Fans Power To Choose A Side With New Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” Promotion

Pizza Hut is joining forces with Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War to give pizza lovers the power to choose a side in what is destined to be one of the year’s biggest movie battles. Although there may be a war onscreen, Pizza Hut is putting an end to all dinner table battles with its $5 Flavor Menu – and with the addition of the ALL-NEW Stuffed Garlic Knots to the $5 Flavor Menu, pizza fans now have even more reason to say “yes” to their favorite Pizza Hut items. An order of Stuffed Garlic Knots includes 10 knots stuffed with mozzarella cheese for just $5.

“The new Captain America movie is centered around the concept of picking sides – Iron Man versus Captain America – but at Pizza Hut, we know picking sides doesn’t have to lead to an all-out battle,” said Jared Drinkwater, Vice President of Marketing, Pizza Hut. “With the $5 Flavor Menu, we’re giving customers the power to choose at a price that allows them to say ‘yes’ to all of their favorite items, including medium 1-topping pizzas.”

As part of the promotional partnership, Pizza Hut and Marvel have developed an action-packed Captain America: Civil War-themed digital hub for adult audiences at www.PizzaHut.com/CaptainAmerica. The hub, which launches April 11, gives Marvel fans and pizza lovers access to exclusive Captain America: Civil War content, including never-before-scene clips and stills from the latest Marvel film. The site also features a quiz allowing users to pick which side they should root for – Captain America or Iron Man – for the chance to win epic prizes, including a trip to a future Marvel movie premiere, behind-the-scenes access to a Marvel prop house and more.

The hub will serve as a housing agent for content that can exclusively be experienced at www.PizzaHut.com/CaptainAmerica. This is the first entertainment from Pizza Hut designed to provide consumers with material to stay engaged while awaiting their order.

“Being able to provide our customers with unique content exclusively through our channels is one of the many exciting ways we are bringing this effort to life,” added Drinkwater. “A wide variety of prizes and unique experiences tied directly to the film will be fun and entertaining for Marvel and Pizza Hut fans alike.”

In addition to the digital hub, Pizza Hut will launch a fully integrated marketing campaign for adults, including a new television spot featuring Captain America: Civil War footage, two new Captain America: Civil War-themed boxes – one highlighting Captain America, the other featuring Iron Man – and more.

“In Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, we see the Avengers team during one of their toughest times. They’re torn apart by conflict, and we’re left wondering if anything can bring the team back together,” said Mindy Hamilton, Senior Vice President of Global Partnerships, Marvel Entertainment LLC. “Whether you are Team Cap or Team Iron Man, we are excited to give our fans the opportunity to choose their side through this effort with Pizza Hut and unite Marvel fans around the film’s release.”

Pizza Hut introduced its first value menu – the $5 Flavor Menu – earlier this year. The nationally-available menu features nine delicious items, including the new stuffed garlic knots, a medium one-topping pizza, eight bone-out WingStreet® Wings, the Ultimate Hershey’s Chocolate Chip Cookie, Hershey’s Triple Chocolate Brownie, Tuscani Pasta, a double order of breadsticks or flavor sticks and four 20-oz. beverages, for just $5 each when ordering two or more.

As the first national pizza chain to remove artificial flavors and colors from its core pizzas, Pizza Hut also has the world’s busiest website in the pizza category at www.PizzaHut.com, with nearly 50 percent of the company’s orders coming through digital channels and more than 30 percent via mobile device.

Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6, 2016. For more information, visit www.PizzaHut.com or www.Marvel.com/CaptainAmerica.

TOMY Unleashes Full Line Of Toys Inspired By Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia”

TOMY Unleashes Full Line Of Toys Inspired By Walt Disney Animation Studios' "Zootopia"

TOMY Unleashes Full Line Of Toys Inspired By Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia”

TOMY International announces the retail arrival of its line of toys inspired by the highly anticipated Walt Disney Animation Studios feature film Zootopia. As a leading global toy manufacturer and distributor, TOMY has translated the world of Zootopia—a mammal metropolis where various animals live and thrive – into a comprehensive line of figures, vehicles, playsets, role-play and plush toys that will appeal to fans of all ages who want to collect the complete character ensemble from the film, debuting theatrically in the U.S. on March 4, 2016. The intricately detailed toys capture character personalities with lights, sounds, and songs and will inspire fans to recreate the fun and adventure of Zootopia.

The city of Zootopia is a mammal metropolis where animals of all sizes work and play together, and TOMY’s toy line offers the same broad range of characters, from the largest elephant to the smallest shrew. When Judy Hopps becomes the first rabbit to join the police force, she quickly learns how tough it is to fit in. With Judy’s Police Cruiser from TOMY, children can play out their own chase scenes, complete with flashing lights and a unique jail cell that adjusts to fit different animal sizes. When Judy jumps at the opportunity to solve a mysterious case, she ends up working with Nick Wilde, a wily fox who is not really eager to help.  The talking plush from TOMY features Nick’s fast-talking phrases and helps bring these scenes to life.

“We are so excited to create toys celebrating the rich and whimsical characters from Zootopia,” states Shehnaz Safiuddin, Senior Vice President of Toy & Hobby at TOMY.  “The toy line is now available at retail locations worldwide, in time for the US movie premiere onMarch 4th and for Easter gift giving—which couldn’t be more ideal with the star rabbit Officer Judy Hopps in the line-up!”

Featured items in TOMY’s toy line include:

  • Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) and Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), each sold separately
  • SRP: $19.99 each.  Age Grade 3 years and up

Judy’s Carrot Recorder and Badge
Judy Hopps always carries two things when she’s on the job; her ZPD badge, and her trusty carrot recorder.

  • Judy Hopps’ carrot recorder and clip badge.
  • Records and plays sounds
