Lionsgate launches NEW American Sign Language Movie Viewing Initiative

Posted on February 17, 2019 in Movies

Lionsgate Joins Actiview & Nyle DiMarco to Make Its Critically Acclaimed Film WONDER the First Live Action US Film to Have American Sign Language Interpretation

 

SANTA MONICA, CA (February 12, 2019) – Lionsgate has teamed up with Actiview, a mobile application company that provides film accessibility solutions for blind, deaf, and foreign language speaking audiences, and Celebrity Deaf Advocate Nyle DiMarco to make the worldwide box office hitWONDER the first live action US film to have an American Sign Language interpretation available for viewing along with the film.

The Actiview app is designed as a “second-screen” experience, either through headphones or on the user’s phone screen, that allows users to playback audio descriptions, captions, multi-language dubs, and even sign language interpretations of films and shows while they watch on a TV, laptop, or in a theater.

“Lionsgate is committed to making our movies increasingly available and accessible,” said Brian Day, Lionsgate Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships. “We’re delighted to be working with Nyle and Actiview to make our incredibly moving and heartfelt movie WONDER the first live action film to ever have American Sign Language available alongside it.”

After winning America’s Next Top Model in 2015 and then becoming a champion on Dancing with the Stars, actor and model Nyle DiMarco has become a major advocate for the deaf community. His goal in teaming up with Actiview and Lionsgate is to ensure that everyone has equal access to entertainment.

“I am so excited about working with Lionsgate and Actiview to make the inspiring film WONDER accessible to everyone and offer them an ASL viewing option,” said DiMarco. “It allows me to take a huge step forward in my campaign to make increasing accessibility a priority in the TV and film industry.”

Lionsgate is also making the entire Hunger Games series (4 films) accessible via the Actiview app, providing Audio Description, Multi-language Dubs, Subtitles, Captions, and Amplified Audio to all audiences who use the Actiview app.

How it works:

Users can watch Wonder (and The Hunger Games) on any available platform and the app will automatically synchronize with their TV. The app “listens” to the movie (similarly to Shazam listening to songs) and figures out where in the movie the viewer is, matching the playback from their device.

 

Any user will be able to download the app (iOS only) at http://activiewapp.com/download or by searching “Actiview” in the App Store. They then select the movie they’re watching and the accessibility service they need (Sign Language, Audio Description, etc.).

 

Wonder follows the inspiring story of the Pullman family, whose youngest child, Auggie, is a boy born with facial differences. When Auggie enters mainstream elementary school for the first time, his extraordinary journey unites his family, his school, and his community, and proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.

 

Wonder is available now on 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™, DVD, and Digital.

A Heartwarming Story About Kindness, Love and Friendship ~ Wonder

Posted on February 11, 2018 in 2018 Valentine's Day Gift Guide Movies

Wonder was an incredibly inspiring film.  My 20 year old cried, and my 6 year old really watched with care.  Sarah, my 20 year old, is going to College to become a teacher.  So this was a good film for her to watch.  She said it inspired her to be the best that she could be.  My 6 year old says “I’ll never bully anyone, Mommy.”  He saw how hurt Auggie was, and said he doesn’t want to do that to anyone.

 

The incredibly moving and heartfelt family film, Wonder, is a great film for you to sit down with your family and watch tonight.

Julia Roberts, & Owen Wilson, play great parents in this film.  They are consoling, and inspirational.

Wonder follows the inspiring story of the Pullman family, whose youngest child, Auggie, is a boy born with facial differences.  When Auggie enters  elementary school for the first time, his extraordinary journey unites his family, his school, and his community, and proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.

You can purchase Wonder, starting February 13, and you will really enjoy it, even with an added tear, or two.

Below are some activities you can enjoy with your family:

 


My family has enjoyed both of these activities.  We worked on them together, and they came out great.  You, too, will enjoy these activities with your kids.
