In clip below, J.B. (Jon Hamm) has returned from India from his search to find a few new hopefuls that will pitch their way to the top of the major leagues.

When you're away for an extended period of time, however, life has a funny way of moving along without you. JB is back, and he's trying to rekindle a relationship with Brenda (Lake Bell) who is noticing some major changes in the way he acts.

Bringing the Glamour of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 is Not So Glamorous

Written by Daniel C.    Friday, 02 May 2014 07:56   

(Scroll down to see Daniel's first-hand account of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 red carpet experience!)

Kids Pick Flicks' Daniel at AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 PremiereOk, so we arrive at the New York movie theater where the premiere for the Amazing SpiderMan 2 is going to be held and we can see the red carpet but we have to wait with the rest of the press before we're let in. My
mom and I are waiting and this security dude comes over. He was a very stereotypical security dude and he was dressed in a suit and had an earpiece so he can communicate with the other stereotypical security dudes and a thick "New Yorker" accent and, to top it off, his hair was slicked back and he was wearing RayBan sunglasses, even though the sun was no where in sight. He looked like he could've been pulled right out of
the 
movie premiering at the theater. He calls for the photo press first and then the video press. Eventually Mr. Security stood back and a woman walked up and started calling out the names of the video press, which was us. When our name was called, we were sent to find our spot at the red carpet.

When we find our spot, we find that we're in-between someone from Us Weekly, a very popular magazine, and Telemundo, a spanish television channel and our spot Alicia Keyswas right in front of a pole, so there was no room. I found that last part very intriguing. When I say intriguing I mean frustrating! Why does that even count as a spot? But what is it moms say... "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit?" Well, that applies because I was glad to have a spot at all because The Amazing Spider-Man 2 premiere is one of the top red carpet events of the year. 

The red carpet begins and I spend the next three and half hours freezing and waiting for celebrities to come and talk to us. Make that, begging celebrities to come and talk to us. The goal was to talk to Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone (she's totally hot, by the way), but sadly that didn't happen. Did I call out to them both as they were rushed passed us on the red carpet? Why yes, yes I did! Did I sound desperate as I begged them to answer one question because I'm just a kid after all? Why yes, yes I did! It wasn't a total loss though.

Max CharlesI spoke with Max Charles who plays a young Peter Parker. He doesn't actually get to BE Spider-Man since he plays Peter pre-powers, but he did tell me his favorite superpower would be swinging from buildings. I asked him his favorite movie and, no surprise, he said Spider-Man (I'm gonna assume he meant the ones he's in rather than the Tobey Maguire versions).  

Jorge VegaI also caught up with Jorge Vega, another kid who has a cool scene in the movie.

The rest of the time was spent calling out to the likes of Pharrell Williams, who swaggered by us, and Alicia Keys, who I swear waved at me! Denis Leary, who plays Commissioner Gordon was there, and my mom was going crazy for him, so I tried to get him to come over by yelling that my mom wanted to meet him. I thought it was funny --  my mom, not so much.

The original Karate Kid, Ralph Macchio was there, and I had tons of questions for him, but the chick next to us apparently also had lots of questions ... she interviewed him until the movie started and he had to go! 

I didn't get all the interviews I wanted, but the good news is that friends of ours did - see the interview footage below with Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx and, of course, Max Charles and Jorge Vega.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 premiere was full of cool moments, celebrity spotting up close! Ultimately I left feeling blue because, for one, I was cold. Also, I didn't get a chance to show Emma my superhero moves! One thing is for sure: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 red carpet is an experience I'll never forget.

 

When You Saw BEARS, You Helped Bears

Written by Dave B.    Thursday, 01 May 2014 19:53   

One of the big reasons we check out a DisneyNature movie when it premieres, is the money from the first week of ticket sales goes to help save our precious ecosystems.

Needless to say, we were so excited to find out that Bears was a tremendous success when it came down to raising money for nature.

The money generated through ticket sales for Bears will help restore and fun research for hundreds of thousands of acres of national parks, bring in new ways to help protect both wildlife and plant life, and help aspiring nature enthusiasts break into a career to help out the environment by providing money for internships!

It's awesome to know that this money is going towards some amazing causes, and that DisneyNature is dedicated to help preserve our delicate planet.

They're already hard at work on their next big production, which means even more money going towards saving the world. We couldn't be happier with the way DisneyNature does their part to protect the Earth.
