Briefly: LaVar Burton‘s Reading Rainbow may have reached it’s $1 million goal in a day, but fans would keep backing the project for days and weeks until it reached its $5 million goal. And now that the 35-day campaign has come to an end, it’s time to count how backers donated to the project. We recently reported that Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane promised to match every dollar donated to the campaign when it reached $4 million. That must given the campaign the extra push it needed to reach the $5 million goal, plus approximately $400K of interest.

Mashable is reporting that the Reading Rainbow Kickstarter’s final numbers are $5.4 million. You can add another million that will be donated by MacFarline as promised, which would make it a grand total of $6.4 million.

Normally movie score titles would ruin critical plot points, and as such, many fans anticipating said film would avoid even looking at what the a soundtrack contains. However when a soundtrack is comprised of songs, it is a little bit different. Sure they may not be a spoilerly as a score title, but song titles can set the tone for certain aspects of the film, and as such, fans would probably want to avoid them too. But what makes James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy a little bit different is that the soundtrack is completely comprised of an awesome mix of music from different generations.

As seen in the header image above, the soundtrack for Guardians of the Galaxy is appropriately titled Awesome Mix Vol. 1. While the Vol. 1 may just be there for looks, the mix itself is indeed Awesome, and since it consists of music that has already been released, the entire playlist has already been uploaded on Spotify, which means it is now available for you to listen to.

The Purge: Anarchy image

We should all be excited about The Purge: Anarchy for a variety of reasons. One its a sequel to the low budget horror film that grossed $89 million on a $3 million budget. The other, is the fact that there is a nationwide Purge Breakout Fan Experience being carried out. No one could have seen the success of The Purge coming, and it will be exciting to see how Universal continues to market the franchise from here on out. To avoid some of the pitfalls of retreading the same story with the same family, The Purge: Anarchy goes a different route, by focusing on the low income families, those who accidentally get caught in the Purge, and those who are looking for vengeance.

A new featurette has popped up online detailing what kinds of characters will well see in the highly anticipated sequel, as well as some new footage. Hit the jump to see it. [Read more...]
