“The Lego Movie 2” can’t get here ‘brickly’ enough! It looks a treat – and by the looks of the trailer, ‘builds’ on the storyline from the ‘awesome’ original.

Warner Bros.Pictures – via Roadshow Films – announced today a wonderful incentive that encourages mindfulness and kids across the country. Having an 11-year-old myself, and knowing how important it is to instill self-acceptance, empathy and self-compassion in our children, I’m all for this.

Parents, download the app today :

Warner Bros. Pictures and leading youth mindfulness platform Smiling Mind have launched a new meditation program, voiced by the heroes of the new big-screen animated adventure The LEGO® Movie 2, Emmet and Lucy, to encourage mindfulness in kids across Australia.

Three meditations will be available in the free Smiling Mind app from today to coincide with the release of The LEGO Movie 2 in Australia on March 21. The meditations voiced by beloved minifigures Emmet and Lucy draw on Emmet’s eternal optimism to give kids the tools for a healthy mind and outlook. They also explore the topics of self-acceptance, self-compassion and empathy, all themes from the movie. The app is available to download from the App Store or Google Play Store.

CEO of Smiling Mind, Dr Addie Wootten, said, “Children love movies and story-telling and we know the significant, and scientifically proven, benefits children experience from meditation, so, this is a great way for us to combine the two. Kids need to be engaged and what better way than having the voice of some of their favourite characters help them focus on the meditation.”

“Smiling Mind is always looking for innovative ways to deliver content that is accessible and aims to change lives through positive pre-emptive mental health tools. We have no doubt that this will be the start of a very exciting collaboration that will see children’s favourite movie characters come to life in such a positive way,” Dr Wootten said.

Emmet agrees. “When I’m not busy building awesome LEGO stuff, battling space aliens and saving the world with my best friend Lucy, I like to take a few minutes to reflect on what’s really important,” he stated. “These easy-to-follow meditations from Smiling Mind help me get in touch with the power of my thoughts so I can always try to be my best self.”

“The Lego Movie 2” opens in 2D and 3D on March 21, 2019 and is distributed by Roadshow Films in Australia.

Rocky 7!?

Sylvester Stallone says he has a “great idea” for another “Rocky” film

While we’ll unlikely see Creed belting his glove again, Sylvester Stallone says Rocky Balboa isn’t out.

The actor  made the revelation today at the Cannes film festival, where his long career and latest ‘Rambo’ film are under the Croisette’s spotlight.

While ‘Sly’ hints that his participation in the “Creed” franchise might be two and out, the 72-year-old says a seventh “Rocky” film could be on the cards.

“I have a great idea for Rocky. He finds this fella who’s in the country illegally and it becomes a whole thing. It would be really phenomenal, really different”.

“It’s like a magician,” he continued. “Once you’ve seen how he does the tricks you’re not impressed any more. It’s the same thing with Rocky. You’ve seen everything, so you’re like, ‘How can it be different?’ That would be different. When you take him and throw him out of the country and he’s in another world. It could work.” he said.

Stallone didn’t say whether it’d be Balboa, who we last saw in 2018’s “Creed II”, training the immigrant.

The actor had intended for 2006’s “Rocky Balboa” to be the character’s swansong but returned to the role when the idea for the “Creed” films were presented to him.

Stallone was at Cannes to attend a a 4K restoration screening of his groundbreaking actioner “First Blood” and promote its fourth sequel “Last Blood”, which sees the long-suffering vet going up against cartels in Mexico.

“He goes out there and bad things happen,” Stallone said. “There’s going to be some serious vengeance in this movie. A lot of people are going to get killed.”
