New Videos Include Penguin Shake Lesson

We’ve been working hard to provide the latest clips and trailers for the latest movies we are covering here at Parent Previews. We hope the video content will help parents have a better idea of a movie’s content and theme. Even better, we are receiving a greater number of “featurettes” which provide some insight into the production process and creativity behind the movies. This week we put up new featurettes for Jon Stewart’s political thriller Rosewater. We also have a peek at a Hobbit fan trip to New Zealand that will leave you all revved up for the latest Hobbit adventure, Battle of the Five Armies. There are a few new nuggets from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and more clips featuring Steve Carell as a very scary wrestling coach in Foxcatcher.

We’ve opened some new movie pages with clips and trailers. Tommy Lee Jones directs and acts the part of a dusty westerner in The Homesman. Nicholas Cage is a CIA agent diagnosed with a brain condition that could bring on dementia in Dying of the Light. In Reach Me, we see how a self-help book effects a variety of people.

The Disney people are also taking the wraps off an upcoming home video release, Tinker Bell: Legend of the NeverBeast, and (just in case you didn’t get enough) we have two new Frozen clips from the Frozen Sing-A-Long Blu-ray release.

Finally, a couple of videos that caught my eye. So sorry to admit this but Paul Blart Mall Cop did tickle my deprived funny bone back in 2009, and the new trailer for the sequel looks promising—although those guys at Segway may not be happy with their product’s performance enhancements. And I’m always pleased when media encourages kids to get off the sofa and shake it up a little. Dancer tWitch does a great job teaching the Penguins of Madagascar to flap their flippers and, hopefully, it will get your kids hopping around the room as well. Check it out…
