PACIFIC RIM in 3D and 2D in select theaters and IMAX on July 12 | “Jaeger Pack” Sweepstakes

Screen Shot 2013-06-28 at 3.58.13 PM

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse. (Warner Bros. Pictures/Legendary Pictures)

Viewers are invited beyond the velvet rope to spend Father’s Day with some very special stars who are always father’s first.

In this brand new, never before aired original show, Ludacris spends the day with his 10-year old daughter Karma, while Swizz Beatz and his father “TD” share their special bond, and the hilarious Gary Owen spends the day with his family.  Each of these celebrity fathers steps out of the spotlight and into real life, showing rarely seen softer sides. Whether Go Kart racing, Roller Skating, or ATV riding, these famous-faced fathers share a glimpse of their most private and important bonds.

J.Period Produces Original Theme Music for NBA TV’s “The Doctor”

jperiod

 

NEW DOCUMENTARY ON NBA LEGEND JULIUS ERVING FEATURES GROUNDBREAKING
MUSIC FROM ACCLAIMED PRODUCER J.PERIOD FEAT. THE ROOTS
GRAMMY-WINNING SONGWRITER JAMES POYSER

 

After a game-changing season as Music Supervisor for the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets—and producer of the team’s highly-touted theme song—J.Period is paying musical tribute to one of basketball’s greatest living legends, Julius Erving, with original theme music composed and produced exclusively for NBA TV’s upcoming documentary, The Doctor (Monday, June 10 on NBA TV).

 

Airing between Games 2 and 3 of this year’s NBA Finals, The Doctor arrives on the 30th anniversary of the Philadelphia 76ers’ 1983 title, and looks back on the life and storied career of the team’s leader, Dr. J. The Doctor includes highlights from Erving’s NBA years, rare and spectacular footage from his days in the ABA, and never-before-heard interviews about the challenges of his off the court life.

 

Continuing his groundbreaking approach to the sports “soundtrack”—featured in publications from Rolling Stone to ESPN Magazine to The New York Times this year—J.Period is once again flipping conventional wisdom on its head with his musical approach to The Doctor.Co-writing music for the film with The Roots’ Grammy-winning composer James Poyser, J.Period has produced an original theme built for the next generation of sports documentaries: an emotional, melodic score and high-energy anthem at once—the soundtrack and its own remix fused into one. The results are as compelling and innovative as the film’s subject: Dr. J’s revolutionary style of play and high-flying acrobatics set the stage for modern day luminaries like Michael Jordan and LeBron James.

 

“If you ever hear Michael Jordan talk,” LeBron explains, “he always says he looked up to and aspired to be like Dr. J. So if there was no Dr. J, then Mike would have never had someone to look up to, and if there was no Mike, then there’s no guys like myself who looked up to Mike.”

 

Directed by Zak Levitt, whose previous credits include the Emmy-nominated The Dream Team, The Doctor is the latest in the long line of NBA TV Originals, critically-acclaimed documentaries and specials, including Sir Charles at 50, One-on-One with Ahmad Rashad: Michael Jordan, as well as the popular series Open Court and The Association.

 

Tune into NBA TV at 9PM EST on Monday, June 10 to watch The Doctor and hear J.Period’s original theme music.
