‘This is Us’ Chrissy Metz Stars in Upcoming Faith-Based Film

MOVIES
Miracles still happen. That is the message of the faith-based film, Breakthrough starring This is Us’ Chrissy Metz. Based on Joyce Smith’s book, The Impossible: The Miraculous Story of a Mother's Faith and Her Child's Resurrection, Breakthrough tells the true story of an event that happened just four years ago.

Metz plays Smith whose 14-year-old son falls through the ice of a Missouri lake. He was trapped under water for 15 minutes and even after he was rescued, he had no pulse for 43 minutes. All seemed lost and Smith was told to come in and say her goodbyes to her son as there was no hope for the boy. But Smith refused to give up and continued to pray for her son’s complete recovery, even in the face of every case history and scientific prediction. Not only did her son come back to life, but he is alive today telling his story.

Directed by Roxann Dawson and produced by DeVon Franklin (Miracles from Heaven), Breakthrough also stars Josh Lucas, Topher Grace, Mike Colter…

Universal Studios Theme Parks Will Bring the World of Nintendo to Life in the Near Future

THEME PARKS
Earlier this week Universal Parks & Resorts announced that they have a new partnership with Nintendo and plans are well underway to bring immersive and highly themed environments to all three of their theme parks in Hollywood, Orlando and Osaka, Japan.

Anyone who has played a Mario game jumping on blocks and collecting coins has certainly wondered what it would be like to do that in real life and soon, we will all find out.

According to the recent release…
“The creative visionaries behind Nintendo’s legendary worlds and characters are working together with the creative teams behind Universal’s blockbuster theme park attractions. Their goal: to bring the characters, action and adventure of Nintendo video games to life within Universal theme parks. And to do so in new and innovative ways that capture what makes them so special. All of the adventure, fun and whimsy you experience through a screen will now be all around you – in breathtakingly authentic ways.”
Mark Woodbury, President of Universal Creative
and Shigeru Miyamoto from Nintendo
and creator of Mario.
Apparently, what was a smaller project to begin with just continued to grow. The new Nintendo-themed areas will feature multiple attractions, shops and restaurants. “Guests will feel as if they are playing inside their favorite games – this time in real life,” says Universal. And it won’t matter how good your skill level is as there will be something for everyone. No one will be too old or too young to play.

While it will take some time to create these new worlds, each Universal theme park will announce details of its own specific Nintendo areas with the first of those announcements to come soon. In the meantime, watch this short video by Mark Woodbury, President of Universal Creative and Shigeru Miyamoto from Nintendo and creator of Mario.
