MOVIE TRIVIA! The game app you were addicted to is now a movie! The #AngryBirdsMovie comes to theaters this weekend with a huge array of voice talent giving these birds and pigs funny sass and plenty of fury. Can you name the four characters that are voiced by current, and or alumni, repertory cast members of #SaturdayNightLive? If not the characters, then just list the actors’ names.
BOX OFFICE REPORT! Disney dominates the box office again with #CaptainAmerica holding its reign internationally and domestically; plus #TheJungleBook kept it consistent in the #2 spot. Newcomer #MoneyMonster banked off of its Clooney/Roberts star power and takes #3, while micro-budget horror #TheDarkness debuts at #4. Rounding it out is another Julia Roberts flick, #MothersDayMovie, at #5. This week will have you seeing red with #TheAngryBirdsMovie, or you can watch the oddball duo of Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe in #TheNiceGuys, or you can enjoy some hearty Seth Rogen chuckles from #Neighbors2. Happy movie-going!
This Friday the 13th… Be prepared for the spirits that do more than just go bump in #TheDarkness.
TONIGHT! #TheDarkness As a family returns home from vacation at the Grand Canyon, they innocently bring home a supernatural force that preys off their own fears and vulnerabilities, threatening to destroy them from within, while consuming their lives with terrifying consequences.
TRIVIA ANSWER! That is #JackOConnell! O’Connell hails from Alvaston, Derby in England but you might not know it from his impressive adaptation of American accents. His starring performance in Angelina Jolie’s 2014 Oscar-nominated film #Unbroken, as USA Olympian Louis Zamperini, garnered lots of acclaim. However, English audiences know him from his many television and film appearances across the pond. Most notably, his role as the teen delinquent, James Cook, in the E4 series #Skins. Check out this star-on-the-rise in #MoneyMonster!
MOVIE TRIVIA! Who has George Clooney at gunpoint in this image from #MoneyMonster? He has a thick Derbyshire accent. He received the 10th annual BAFTA Rising Star Award. His breakthrough Hollywood performance came with an Angelina Jolie collaboration.

TONIGHT! #CaptainAmericaCivilWar We find 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 builds behind the installation of a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team.

TRIVIA ANSWER! These kick-butt ladies have starred in many challenging dramas & action roles, but the parts we were referring to come from 2014 and 2015: #EmilyBlunt was Special Forces warrior #RitaVrataski in #EdgeOfTomorrow with #TomCruise. While #CharlizeTheron was #ImperatorFuriosa, alongside #TomHardy, in the Oscar-winning hit, #MadMax #FuryRoad. While both of the ‘Toms’ in these movies were great, we think these ladies stole the show! What do you think? See them fight to rule the screen in #TheHuntsman #WintersWar, coming soon!
MOVIE TRIVIA! #EmilyBlunt & #CharlizeTheron are battling sisters/queens in #TheHuntsman #WintersWar. They rival each other in beauty, dominance, and magic power, but these two actresses are known for tackling gritty roles in action films. Both Theron and Blunt co-starred in separate films that take place in a dystopian future and feature each of them as a female warrior. What are the films and what are their character’s names? HINT: Blunt’s character can time travel & Theron’s character is looking for the “Green Place"
