Some films are fated to be no more than the sum of their production companies. This seasonal digimation is almost exactly what you might imagine from a collaboration between Sony’s evangelical offshoot, Affirm Films, and Narnia deliverers Walden Media: it takes an idea with the potential for irreverent fun – retelling the Nativity from the animals’ perspective – then plays everything straighter than the average Sunday-school sermon.
Little donkey Boaz’s quest to escape his yoke and serve some higher purpose meets the religious brief; accompanying him through the usual series of helter-skelter set pieces, the rotely wisecracking Dave the dove swiftly puts paid to hopes of divine inspiration, while kooky sheep Abby hews so close to Ellen DeGeneres’ Dory in personality that you can hear the Pixar lawyers’ phones vibrating.
The deals have been divided into days, with the first deals going live today
If you’ve got kids, or even adults who are young at heart, there is no better gift than Lego.
From Star Wars to DC Comics, Marvel and even Frozen, there’s likely to be a set to suit anyones tastes and hobbies, and for five days, starting today, many of these sets are available directly from Lego with at least 20% off in what is being called Lego's Brick Friday and Cyber Monday event.
The deals have been divided into days, with the first deals going live today. As a result, the 20% won’t show on the Rrp until the day that particular deal goes live - and the deals run for that day only where listed. Some sets will then be available for the full five days, and others will have more than 20% off.
More deals than you can shake an ewok at
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away there was no such thing as Black Friday. I mean, the Rebel Alliance had their hands full trying to overthrow the Galactic Empire and weren’t ideally placed to assess whether saving 30% on toothbrushes was a good deal or if they’d just got deal blindness in a fit of bargain-induced madness. Not even considering that toothbrushes have yet to be introduced into the full Star Wars universe, given only certain aliens seem to have teeth.
Where was I? Oh yeah, Star Wars deals. Black Friday may not exist on Tatooine or Dagobah, but it is here on Earth. Here are the best Star Wars Black Friday bargains:
Assorted Propel Battle Drones (was £199.99, now £119.99)
Jon loved Propel’s Star Wars drones when he reviewed them back in September, but there was one little problem.
Sony officially drops PS4 Pro bundles to below £300 as Black Friday deals start
Sony has officially dropped the price of the PS4 Pro below £300 with two official Black Friday bundles both coming in £50 under the console’s launch price with two games.
For just £299.99, you can pick up either a PS4 Pro with Call of Duty: WWII and FIFA 18 or snap up a Glacier White PS4 Pro with Gt Sport and Call of Duty: WWII. The deal can be found at participating retailers. Expect Argos, John Lewis and Game to offer up both console bundles in due time – as of right now, Amazon is the only retailer selling one of these bundles.
Alongside the PS4 Pro discounts, Sony is also bringing down the price of PlayStation Plus from £50 to £37.49. As Ps Plus subscriptions stack, it’s a great time to stock up on your subscription if you want
Riffing pretty hard on “Where The Wild Things Are” (to the point where I think the Maurice Sendak estate might have a case), the charming promo follows a young boy, who befriends the monster under his bed, playing with him all night long.
Continue reading Michael Gondry Goes ‘Where The Wild Things Are’ With John Lewis Christmas Ad at The Playlist.
If you want to turn the story of a little boy and an oversized Flump with windypops into a heartstring-tugging phenomenon, you probably need to maximise the sense of whimsy and childish wonder. So John Lewis hiring Michel Gondry, the visually inventive Frenchman behind Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, to direct their Christmas advert makes a lot of sense. But is it always a great idea to attach a big-name director to your latest zeitgeist-chasing marketing push? The results, as these examples show, can be … mixed.
One of the following is definitely true: John Lewis is catastrophically unlucky, or John Lewis possesses the gift of second sight and has chosen to use its powers for evil. After last year’s John Lewis Christmas advert – in which a qualified female was beaten to a lusted-after reward by a drooling animal – became an inadvertent allegory for the Us election, this year’s one somehow manages to be even more horribly prescient.
Because, well, it’s about a monster. It’s about a monster that hides under your bed and ruins your life. Sure, he seems like fun, but that doesn’t stop him from turning your every moment into a waking nightmare.
On Monday, the L.A. Zoo announced the passing of its 48-year-old Indian rhinoceros, Randa, due to age-related illness.
“Randa has been iconic throughout L.A. Zoo’s history, and so many visitors have been touched by an encounter with her or her fantastic story,” said John Lewis, Zoo Director at the Los Angeles Zoo, in a press statement. “It is a true testament of the work zoos do and the expertise of our staff that she was able to beat cancer and live a full life here at the Zoo.
The John Lewis Christmas TV ad has come early and it’s a nightmare. Domhnall Gleeson and Margot Robbie put on fraightfully upmarket English accents and stand around like tailor’s dummies in this bizarrely clenched and infantilised tragedy-twee heritage drama about AA Milne’s fraught relationship with his son Christopher Robin.
The poor, bewildered little moppet got roped into the Winnie the Pooh publicity machine as the books’ popularity exploded in the 1920s. Will Tilston plays the eight-year-old Cr, while Alex Lawther – on the verge of typecasting, I fear – plays the unhappier older teen version, bullied at his boarding school. Famed author Milne had served in the trenches during the first world war, and had suffered from Ptsd, or shell shock as it was then known
The 4-year-old royal’s first day at Thomas’s Battersea School in London is set for Sept. 7, and when he arrives (with mom Princess Kate and dad Prince William in tow), he’ll be wearing the co-ed school‘s uniform.
George has three different uniforms he’ll wear during his time at Thomas’s Battersea. The first is his “summer uniform,” which is likely what he’ll be wearing on his first day. It consists of a blue button-down shirt, shorts and a navy sweater with the school’s logo. To keep cool in the summer months,
John Lewis, 56, of Saranac Lake, New York, stopped by a local market in June to gather some last-minute ingredients for dinner before starting his bartending shift.
“I ran to the store before work to get mushrooms for my spaghetti sauce,” Lewis told New York Lottery officials. “It’s a two-day sauce my dad used to make.”
After making his purchase, Lewis was given $10 in change, so, on a whim, he decided to buy a Set For Life scratch-off ticket from
“There was a sense of betrayal and frustration,” John Lewis tells People. “Once I had sold him my interest in the company and his show began to flourish, I never heard from him again.”
The comments come nearly a week after Lewis and Richard Clark filed a $1 million lawsuit against Gaines, 42, and others in Waco, Texas, claiming that the TV star bought them out of the real estate company without telling them that he had
The sweet yellow cardigan she wore in her adorable birthday portrait (taken by mom Princess Kate!) has sold out in record time, but the peter pan top she’s wearing underneath is still available — and it has been reduced to just $6!
The Peter Pan Long Sleeved Tee in Denim Ditsy Floral by JoJo Maman Bébé is a wardrobe staple and designed to be paired with skirts and paints or layered under overalls and sweaters — just as Charlotte did.
