Stars and Stripes Lubbock presents... The Lion King!

Simba, Nala, Timon, Pumbaa, and the rest of the gang from Pride Rock stampede into Stars & Stripes Lubbock as Disney Pictures presents The Lion King!

 

In the last few years, the trend of Disney live-action adaptations has been nothing to scoff at and now the Circle of Life is complete for The Lion King as the 1994 animated classic roars to stunning new life. The Lion King tells the Hamlet-esque story of a young lion prince named Simba who must reclaim the throne from his tyrannical uncle Scar and take his rightful place as king of “everything the light touches.” That’s quite the constituency!

 

The film is directed by Jon Favreau and utilizes an updated version of the visual effects used in his adaptation of The Jungle Book, which seamlessly combine computer animation with live-action cinematography. And, of course, you wouldn’t be doing the original Lion King justice if you didn’t include any of the film’s memorable songs. Elton John and Tim Rice return with a new take on their beloved classics, as well as a brand-new song performed by Beyoncé!

 

It’s sure to be a favorite for the whole pack so make your a-weemah-way to Stars & Stripes Lubbock and see Disney’s The Lion King! Click the link below for your tickets!

Stars and Stripes Lubbock presents... Spider-Man: Far From Home!

June 28th, 2019

Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios are teaming up once again with the follow up to 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming! Starring Tom Holland, Zendaya, and Jake Gyllenhaal… it’s Spider-Man: Far From Home!

 

Holland returns as Peter Parker, aka. Spider-Man, and after the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, it’s not a spoiler to say that everyone’s favorite wall crawler needs a break! As young Parker’s uncle from another franchise once said, however, “With great power comes great responsibility” and with that philosophy in mind, Peter must put his sight-seeing trek across Europe on hold to battle destructive creatures from another dimension! Spidey can’t do it alone though. He’s going to have to team up with Mysterio, a super hero who, like the evil creatures, is also from another dimension!

 

Spider-Man: Far From Home marks the first time that the multiverse, recently made famous by last year’s Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, appears in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although, as fans of the comics will know, Mysterio isn’t usually the most trustworthy of characters. So is this really the introduction of the multiverse? Are Mysterio’s intentions actually somewhat sinister, and if so… how is he able to deceive super-spy extraordinaire, Nick Fury? Whatever the answers are, it’s definitely going to be a lot for our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man to handle.

 

While Spider-Man may be far from home, an enjoyable double-feature at Stars & Stripes Lubbock is only a short drive away. Click the link below and get your tickets to see Spider-Man: Far From Home!

Fun family entertainment is UNLEASHED (get it?) at Stars & Stripes Lubbock with the sequel to the 2016 smash hit that posed the question, “What do our pets do when we’re not home?” From Illumination Studios, it’s The Secret Life of Pets 2!

Join Max, a neurotic terrier who becomes overprotective of his owner’s new child, and sets out with his fellow pets on a cross-country adventure to rescue the kid from harm. It’s sort of like an animated Homeward Bound, only with costumed rabbits and anxiety disorders!

Like its predecessor, The Secret Life of Pets 2 boasts a star-studded cast. Patton Oswalt takes over the role of Max, while Eric Stonestreet returns as Duke, Max’s newfound (and Newfoundland) best friend. There’s Kevin Hart as a bunny named Snowball, Jenny Slate as Gidget the Pomeranian, Lake Bell, Nick Kroll, Dana Carvey, and even big screen legend Harrison Ford as Rooster, a farm dog who helps Max overcome his fears.

And it’s no secret - Stars & Stripes Lubbock allows pets! Bring your furry friends and family to see The Secret Life of Pets 2! Click the link below for tickets!

Stars & Stripes Lubbock is gettin’ genie wit it as Walt Disney Studios conjures up the live-action remake of a beloved animated classic! Directed by Guy Ritchie, it’s Aladdin!

 

The film follows Mena Massoud as the titular diamond in the rough who attempts to win the heart of  the beautiful Princess Jasmine, played by Naomi Scott. Of course, you can’t have an Aladdin remake without a big blue genie, and who better to take on the iconic role than film icon himself, Will Smith!

 

When faced with the task of filling the shoes of Robin Williams, who voiced the Genie in the animated original, Smith admits that he was, of course, intimidated. “At the end of the day,” Smith stated, “It was the music where I saw that I could honor the nostalgia, and I could pay homage to Robin, but then also be able to add my new flavor.” Speaking of the music, Aladdin features brand new renditions of the original’s classic songs, as well as a few new pieces composed by Disney Legend Alan Menken.

 

So hop on your magic carpet, elephant, or… probably just your car and enjoy a fun-filled night under the stars watching Disney’s Aladdin at Stars & Stripes Lubbock! Click the link below for your tickets!

The game is afoot at Stars and Stripes Lubbock, …and the foot is actually a tiny yellow paw because we’re talking about Pokémon: Detective Pikachu!

 

Based on the video game of the same name, the first ever live-action Pokémon film tells the story everyone’s favorite yellow Pokémon who, while not the best at battling in the arena, is gifted with some self-proclaimed detective skills. Those skills are put to the test when Pikachu teams up with a former Pokémon trainer named Tim Goodman to track down Tim’s missing father. Traditionally, most Pokémon are only able to say their own name, but in a Doctor Dolittle-esque twist, Tim is actually able to understand Detective Pikachu, who much to the delight of fans, is voiced by Ryan Reynolds of recent Deadpool fame. Our two heroes’ investigation leads them on an adventure filled with encounters from the famous creatures that have been all the rage with audiences since their debut more than 20 years ago!

Stars and Stripes Lubbock presents... Avengers: Endgame!

April 19th, 2019

It’s an epic event eleven years in the making at Stars and Stripes Lubbock with the next highly-anticipated installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Avengers: Endgame!

As Tony Stark said in 2012’s The Avengers, our heroes might not be able to save the world, but they WILL avenge it! Now here we are, several films later, and that scenario has finally come true. The Avengers were not able to save the world from the big baddie Thanos in last year’s Avengers: Infinity War, so now it’s time for the team to live up to their name and avenge it. Of course, simply saying that the Avengers were ‘unable to save the world’ is putting it mildly as the supervillain Thanos actually wiped out half of all life in the entire universe! Wondering if and how our heroes are able to right such a monumental wrong is probably what makes Endgame one of the most anticipated movies of the year.

As most people probably already know, the film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johannson, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, and Mark Ruffalo as everyone’s favorite superhero team. Also tagging along is Paul Rudd as Ant-Man and Brie Larson as the most recent addition to the MCU, Captain Marvel!

21 action-packed films in the last 11 years have all been leading up to this moment, and there’s no better place to enjoy that moment than Stars and Stripes Lubbock! Click the link below and get your tickets to Avengers: Endgame today!

Stars and Stripes Lubbock presents... Shazam!

March 30th, 2019

It’s a night of super-powered fun for the kid in all of us as Stars and Stripes Lubbock presents the latest installment in the DC Extended Universe, Shazam!

 

The film tells the story of 14-year-old Billy Batson who, after performing a heroic deed, is magically gifted with superhuman abilities which transform him into an adult superhero every time he says the magic word, ‘Shazam.’ As fun as that premise sounds, however, there’s also some good comic book peril in store for Billy as he’s forced to take on the evil super-villain, Dr. Sivana! What’s a superhero without a nemesis?

 

Like most comic book superheroes, Shazam’s roots go all the way back to the 1940’s, only rather than Shazam, the magical man-child went by the name of Captain Marvel. Due to decades of obvious trademark conflicts with Marvel Comics’ character of the same name, DC officially changed the name of Billy’s alter-ego to Shazam in 2011 and it’s a good thing they did. With the MCU also giving their Captain Marvel a big-screen adaptation, watching superhero movies in 2019 might have been a little confusing for audiences. 

 

Oh! And here’s another fun piece of movie trivia. Both Shazam! and Captain Marvel feature Djimon Hounsou in a supporting role.

 

From Warner Bros. Studios and DC Comics, it’s Shazam! and it’s playing at Stars and Stripes Lubbock! There’s no magic word you need to say to get your tickets, just click the link below!

Stars and Stripes Lubbock presents... Dumbo!

March 22nd, 2019
Categories: 

Spring is in full bloom at Stars and Stripes Lubbock! It’s a season of renewal, and that’s definitely the case at Walt Disney Studios as they roll out their latest live-action remake of a beloved animated classic, Dumbo!

 

Where the original 1941 Dumbo was primarily a series of animated vignettes focusing on the titular big-eared elephant and his life at the circus, this newest version, directed by Tim Burton, adds more of a human element to the story. Set in a time where three ring circuses are fading into obscurity, Dumbo tells the tale of a small family who are tasked by the circus ringmaster with caring for a newborn elephant with oversized ears. But after the discovery that the elephant is actually capable of flying, the circus, and its diverse crew of workers, receive a sudden resurgence in popularity. As was the case with its animated predecessor, Dumbo instills the belief that no matter who we are, or where we come from, we’re all capable of greatness.

 

Besides Dumbo himself, the film also features a lineup of circus-sized talent. Colin Farrell, Eva Green, Danny Devito, and Michael Keaton all star. For Devito and Keaton, as well director Tim Burton, Dumbo marks a reunion of sorts as the first time the two actors have starred opposite together since Burton’s Batman Returns. The two veteran actors undergo a role-reversal of sorts this time around, however, as Devito trades the villainous persona of The Penguin for the lovable aging ringmaster Max Medici opposite Keaton’s sinister business tycoon V.A. Vandevere.

 

It promises to be a night of high-flying fun at Stars and Stripes Lubbock! Click the link below to get your tickets for Dumbo!

Stars and Stripes Lubbock presents... Captain Marvel!

Stars and Stripes Lubbock is going higher, further, and faster as Marvel Studios serves up the newest addition in their beloved cinematic universe, Captain Marvel!

The year is 1995. The Dot-Com Boom hits, Michael Jordan returns to the NBA, and in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a shape-shifting alien race known as the Skrull invade the planet! That’s quite a lot going on, and it’s up to U.S. Air Force pilot turned cosmic superhero Carol Danvers to swoop in and save the world from an intergalactic war! Captain Marvel boasts an all-star cast including Academy Award Winner Brie Larson in the lead, as well as Jude Law, Annette Bening, Ben Mendelsohn, and last but never least, Samuel L. Jackson as everyone’s favorite super-spy, Nick Fury!

Fans will no doubt remember the post credits scene from last year’s Avengers: Infinity War where Agent Fury uses a souped-up 1990’s pager to send out a call for help. Captain Marvel takes audiences back in time and delivers the story behind said page. Since the film does take place in the 90’s, Executive Producer Kevin Feige promises an atmosphere unlike what we’ve grown accustomed to with the MCU. Setting the story in an era before the emergence of superheroes serves as a way to let Captain Marvel “carve out her own space in the Cinematic Universe,” as well as deliver a Nick Fury who’s not so well-versed in super people. Plus, characters like Ronan, Korath, and Agent Phil Coulson are able to show up! Because, SPOILER ALERT, they haven’t died yet!

The good times are alive and kicking at Stars and Stripes Lubbock! Click the link below to get your tickets and BLAST OFF for Marvel’s Captain Marvel! Oh hey… You think the studio realized they used their own name twice? Oh well.
