Over the past few years, we've had some "family movie nights," but they haven't really been an event. I remember a few times as a kid in the 80s when a true family movie night was watching something on "live" television with no VCR (I remember seeing THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK on one such occasion) with some pizza (usually Aurelio's) served-up on plain white paper plates that were placed in some brightly-colored wicker/rattan holders. When the pizza was done, the popcorn would be served as the whole family gathered in front of the 'tube for the feature presentation. While those days seem so much simpler, they were memorable, and my wife and I hope to create some similarly-lasting memories for our own daughters. For our first true "event" style Family Movie Night, I stopped by Walmart and picked up one of this year's Academy Award Nominees for "Best Animated Feature," THE BOXTROLLS.

Today (January 14) is National Dress Up Your Pet Day, once again proving that yes, Virginia - there is a day for everything. We have two dogs and a fish, and while it would be a little hard to dress up Lula (the Betta fish, named for a whale on DOC McSTUFFINS), our dogs could possibly be dressed-up, as they have been on occasion in the past. With that in mind (and with some pictures I'm sharing as well), Air Bud Entertainment is using today as the perfect time to announce the in-home release date for their new film, RUSSELL MADNESS.  After making a theatrical bow on February 21 as part of the #FandangoFamily Screening Series,  RUSSELL MADNESS will come to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on March 10.

FANDANGO - Buy Movie Tickets Now!While there's been movie coverage here on THE ROCK FATHER since day one, the amount of great films headed for theaters in 2015 made this the perfect year to expand it. As someone who's long been cinema-obsessed (and even worked on a few films), I've had a love-hate relationship with movies at times, sometimes stepping away for a bit to regain a passion for it. But this year is a big one - and one I've been eagerly-awaiting for a very long time (hello, STAR WARS). Some of my most-anticipated films of 2015 include PADDINGTON, STRANGE MAGIC, HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2, AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, ENTOURAGE, ANT-MAN, JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS, THE PEANUTS MOVIE, SPECTRE, and of course, STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. And there's plenty more that I'd like to see as well. Below you'll find a list of films set for release to theaters in the U.S. for the full run of 2015. Dates are subject to change, but there's something for everyone... from babies to grownups. Take a look...

PEANUTS Brand AmbassadorTHE ROCK FATHER's 2015 Movie Preview showcases select titles heading to theaters this year, as provided to us by studio representatives. 

I've been on-board for The PEANUTS Movie since it was first announced - me being a lifelong fan of the creations of Charles M. Schulz. Being a parent, we've been making our own PEANUTS memories, one of the first being my special trip to a Hallmark store for a full-size Snoopy plush for Addie a few years back. With the first-ever big-screen CGI adventure featuring Snoopy and the gang due in theaters this November, I'm including it in my 2015 movie preview - and this is also a perfect time to reveal that you'll be seeing a lot more of Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus and all of your favorite PEANUTS characters here on THE ROCK FATHER in the year ahead. I'll be working with PEANUTS Worldwide as a Brand Ambassador, so stay tuned...

MINIONS is the prequel to the DESPICABLE ME franchise, and a prime example of giving the audience what they want - more Minions! Set for release this summer, I have a slight connection to this world through helping MEGA Bloks launch their new line of DESPICABLE ME/MINIONS building sets. More on that very soon. Check out the film profile and trailer below!
