Disney & myLingo Breaks Language Barriers For Moviegoers!

mcfarland

Walt Disney Studios has unveiled a new collaboration with myLINGO, a smartphone app that allows moviegoers to experience a film in the language of their choice discreetly through personal headphones.  For Disney’s upcoming release of “McFarland, USA,” moviegoers can enjoy the film in Spanish right along side their bilingual family and friends when the film hits theaters on February 20.

The myLINGO app uses the microphone on a moviegoer’s smartphone or other device to “listen” to the audio, once the movie has begun.  The app, through a proprietary algorithm, then matches the unique audio signature to its precise place in the movie, and plays back the alternate language audio through headphones in perfect sync with the film. The audio file will only play if it hears the movie, and once the movie is over, the file self-deletes from the app.

“We are delighted to bring the magical world of Disney films to a broader group of Spanish-speaking viewers and multicultural families at select theatres with this new technology,” said Paul Holliman, Vice President, Strategic Planning at Walt Disney Studios.  “myLINGO provides a rich and customized cinematic experience, where bilingual families and friends can share the same emotion, laughter and excitement together in a whole new way.”

The Spanish audio track for “McFarland, USA” will be offered for free via a promotional code throughout opening weekend February 20 – 22.   Following the opening weekend, filmgoers can access the audio track for $1.99.

“The Walt Disney Company is one of the most iconic and respected companies in the world, and  myLINGO is thrilled to be working together on such an important film about bringing people and communities together,” said Adam Polak, co-founder of myLINGO. Co-founder, Olenka Polak added, “myLINGO is dedicated to creating authentic and inclusive experiences that are accessible to all moviegoers no matter what language they speak.”

Cinemagoers can enjoy their customized audio experience in three easy steps:

  1. Download the myLINGO app for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

2. Before going to the theater, choose the Spanish audio file for McFarland USA and download it – either at home, or someplace with a strong Wi-Fi signal.

3. Be sure to bring your smartphone and good earphones that seal the ear canal.

Are you ready for McFarland, USA?

NYC’s pop sweetheart Sariah has released her brand new Queen of Hearts EP via Reigning Hearts Records and produced by Ruwanga Samath (Flo Rida, Kesha). T The EP includes the Billboard Dance Chart hit “Aware Alive Awake”, her own rendition of Pharrell’s Grammy Award-Winning single “Happy”, and her current single “Cold Blooded” – inspired by “a personal journey that [she] had to go through to get where [she] is today.”

“My Queen of Hearts EP is my most personal and intimate album I have ever created. I am so proud of every song on there because each lyric truly comes from my heart… I hope my hearts enjoy these journeys.” – Sariah in a recent interview with Buzznet

“Intimate lyrics and club music are two words that you hear in the same sentence, but Sariah is about to accomplish just that.” – Examiner

Sariah was born in Boston but moved to New York City to pursue a career in music. The multi-talented dance/pop artist, known affectionately as the “Queen of Hearts,” exploded onto the scene in 2010 with her Billboard Club Chart hit “Deep N Luv.” Her brand new single “Aware Awake Alive” is now available on iTunes. With a new EP on the way via Reigning Heart Records, Sariah is ready to release a fresh, anthemic sound. Sariah has performed all over the United States including an east coast tour and Las Vegas. She has performed the National Anthem for the Miami Heat and New York Knicks, has participated in three off-Broadway shows, and performed at this summer’s New York Musical Theatre Festival.

In celebration of her EP, Sariah performed all of the tracks live in NYC this past Sunday at The McKittrick Hotel’s Manderley Bar. See photos from Sariah’s special performance here.

Mockingjay – Part 1 became the highest-grossing domestic release of 2014 when it reached nearly $333.2 million at the domestic box office yesterday.  The last two installments of The Hunger Games franchise (Catching Fire and Mockingjay – Part 1) have become the highest-grossing releases at the domestic box office each of the past two years, the first time in decades that a studio has scored back-to-back #1 films of the year and the first time ever for back-to-back sequels.  Mockingjay – Part 1, which opens in China on February 8th, has already grossed more than $700 million worldwide, bringing global box office for the franchise to over $2.2 billion.

“The number one theatrical release of 2014 is poised to become one of the biggest home entertainment events of 2015,” said Lionsgate Home Entertainment President Ron Schwartz and Lionsgate President of Worldwide Television & Digital Distribution Jim Packer.  “With the film’s home entertainment rollout beginning on Digital HD next month and continuing on Blu-ray, DVD and on demand in March, we’re continuing to expand the portfolio of choices we offer to enrich the experience of our consumers.”

Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence leads an all-star cast in the battle for Panem in a spectacular sequel packed with five hours of extensive, must-see bonus materials including the two-hour behind-the-scenes documentary “The Mockingjay Lives: The Making of Mockingjay – Part 1.” Featuring never-before-seen interviews and on-set footage of the cast and crew, the documentary takes an in-depth look at the making of the film including the script adaptation, location scouting, set design – including physically creating the hovercraft – casting the new characters, and bringing District 13 to life.

Additional special features include “Straight from the Heart: A Tribute to Philip Seymour Hoffman,” deleted scenes, an audio commentary with director Francis Lawrence and producer Nina Jacobson, as well as the “Songs of Rebellion: Lorde on Curating the Soundtrack” featurette, the music video for the Golden Globe®-nominated song “Yellow Flicker Beat” and a brand new sneak peek at The Divergent Series: Insurgent. The Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $39.99 and $29.95, respectively.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 features an acclaimed cast including Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Willow Shields, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone with Stanley Tucci and Donald Sutherland reprising their original roles from The Hunger Games and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The impressive lineup is joined by five-time Academy Award® nominee Julianne Moore*, Mahershala Ali (Netflix’s “House of Cards”), Natalie Dormer (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”), Wes Chatham (The Help), Elden Henson (Jobs) and Evan Ross (Jeff, Who Lives at Home).

Based on the best-selling third novel of Suzanne Collins’ award-winning trilogy, with a screenplay by Peter Craig (The Town) and Danny Strong (Lee Daniels’ The Butler) and directed by Francis Lawrence (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 reveals that the rebellion is growing. Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived and is recovering from the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell deep inside the bunkered catacombs of District 13. Separated from some of her closest allies and fearing for their safety in the Capitol, Katniss finally agrees to be the Mockingjay, the symbolic leader of the rebellion. Still uncertain as to whom she can trust, Katniss must help District 13 rise from the shadows, all the while knowing that President Snow has focused his hatred into a personal vendetta against her—and her loved ones.
