“Watch the first look at The Angry Birds Movie coming to theaters in May 2016! In this hilarious 3D adventure, we’ll finally find out why the birds are so angry”.

“The movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis – We’re the Millers, Horrible Bosses), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad in his first animated role since Frozen), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride – This is the End, Eastbound and Down) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to”.

“Directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray). Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire. The all-star cast also includes Lupita Nyong’o as the voice of the fiercely protective mother wolf Raksha, and Giancarlo Esposito as the voice of wolf pack’s alpha male Akela.

“The Jungle Book” seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world. The wild adventure swings into theaters in 3D on April 15, 2016”.

Pink Floyd is a household name for music lovers. Their epic live shows, light effects, heavy lyrical pieces and unorthodox drops have always made them stand a string apart in the musical world. In ‘Inside out’, the entire story of the band unfolds straight from how the members met to the famous Live 8 Reunion where they featured together for the last time. Like the cherry on the cake, the readers can be happy that it’s not an outsider who is telling the story of the band but the only member who has been part of Pink Floyd from day one to the last- Nick Mason.

The drummer takes the readers on a ride through the ups and downs of the band, their struggles, their love lives and how ‘The Dark Side’ made their life a whole lot brighter. The witty man known also for his love of racecars apart from the drum kit unfolds the never before heard story of the band including the rise and fall of Syd Barret, one of the founding members of the band describing how their paths started and united to be the first ever sound of acid consciousness and the darlings of the London Underground.

Regent Street Polytechnic was the start of the endless river of music; it was during the Poly day that the band was formed constituting of Nick Mason, Richard Wright, Roger Walters and Syd Barret. Straight from the first chapter the book tells us how these youngsters came together to make The Pink Floyd Sound (as the band was called then). Spanning over more than 50 years from the 1950s to the early 2000s Nick Mason gives a detailed and witty outlook into the hurdles they faced, the first recording they did and the efforts they took to make The Atom Heart Mother (the first Pink Floyd album) a reality. The downfall of Syd Barret was always a huge question in the minds of Floyd fans around the world and Mason has given the true facts behind the sidelining of him and the arrival of the man who came to be known as the guitar and voice of Pink Floyd-David Gilmour.

The book also dwells into the time when they were composing songs for their most famous album yet- The Dark Side of the Moon which went on to be one of the most successful albums worldwide. Like they say there are two sides to a coin, the drummer tells the readers about the ego clashes and tensions between the members which soon followed after the epic success of The Dark Side in a very straight forward way and how it lead to the splitting up of the band after which David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright still continued to be Pink Floyd while Roger Walters went away to start a troop of his own. The book ends with the live 8 reunion and how things helped to make the reunion a reality with all the members playing together (apart from Syd Barret).

The book is a must read for all the Pink Floyd fans as it dwells into everything about and around the band including the extended Pink Floyd family and the people who worked behind the stage and helped in creating stadium filling sights and sounds that are Pink Floyd today.

“The Republican field is so jam-packed with hopefuls that it’s hard to distinguish who is who. This made Jimmy wonder how much voters actually know about candidates other than Donald Trump. So we went out on the street and asked pedestrians if, given a choice of three people, they could identify the Republican candidate for President”.
