Official Ember Spotlight - Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 - GameMill Entertainment

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 - Official Ember Spotlight - GameMill Entertainment

Featuring a unique cheer meter, Ember Mclain from Danny Phantom joins Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 with far reaching guitar attacks and strong abilities. Watch Ember's previously released reveal trailer here!

As an all-rounder, Ember comes equipped with an array of far-reaching attacks based on her gaster guitar and music-centric moves, notes Try Hard Games. These attacks contribute to her unique in-game feature: a cheer meter that fills up incrementally when she lands hits with these particular moves.

Upon filling the cheer meter, all of Ember’s special moves receive a power boost, thereby adding a layer of strategy for players who use her. Among her special moves are her up special, where she rides her guitar into the sky while pulling opponents along until the move’s final hits. Her side special, dubbed “Arpeggio,” comprises four hits and can be canceled at will. When her cheer meter is full, this move transforms, delivering a potent blast all at once.

Another special move in her repertoire is “Ghost Power Cord,” her neutral special. This move serves as a useful projectile for controlling space and initiating combos. It gains speed and power once the cheer meter is filled. Ember’s down special, known as “Jam Sessions,” uses hypnotic tunes to stun opponents, setting them up for further attacks.

One of Ember’s distinct advantages is her ability to operate at a greater range compared to most characters. This advantage stems from her musical abilities and equipment. Those skilled in maintaining spacing during gameplay could benefit from a spike located at the tip of her Forward Air move. Additionally, her light up air proves to be an effective tool for starting combos and juggling opponents.

Other interesting features in her move set include a charged aerial up attack, which can be terminated early for a stronger finish if the attack button is pressed again. Her aerial charged down attack, termed “September Rain,” releases a potent ghostly rip. Overall, the gameplay mechanics and movesets announced for Ember McLain make her a versatile addition to the Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 roster, providing various tools suitable for a range of matchups.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 lets you duke it out with the biggest and best fighting character roster yet, including all new characters like SpongeBob SquarePants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Squidward Tentacles, Jimmy Neutron, and more! Choose your favorite brawlers, master their unique move sets, and use all-new powerful Supers to land the finishing blow with friends or across a unique, roguelike player campaign!

Releasing Nov. 3 on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (via Steam). Visit for more info!

'Pip and Posy Let’s Learn' Launches on Sky Kids

Magic Light Pictures’ new pre-school series Pip and Posy Let’s Learn launches today exclusively on all Sky Kids platforms.

Pip and Posy Let’s Learn

In the series – a spin-off from Magic Light’s hugely popular Pip and Posy – Pip and Posy look at educational concepts in their playful way to bring a sense of wonder and delight to learning. Young viewers will play with Pip, Posy and their friends to learn concepts from the early years curriculum, such as shape sorting and simple maths, in exciting and inventive ways.

The 26 x 5’ series will be available across all Sky platforms – Sky Kids Channel, Sky Kids app, Sky Go, Sky+, Sky Q, Stream and Glass – with the first episode launched on Sky Kids linear at 7.30am this morning, and the first six episodes available on demand from around 6.00am.

Commissioned by Lucy Murphy, director of Sky Kids, exclusively for the channel, the spin-off series re-emphasises the broadcaster’s commitment to Pip and Posy – Magic Light’s first-ever pre-school series, inspired by the best-selling books from award-winning illustrator Axel Scheffler and written by Camilla Reid. Proving a huge hit from launch on both Channel 5’s Milkshake! and Sky Kids, the show was quickly recommissioned by both parties for a second series, which debuted earlier this year.

Packed with warmth and humour, Pip and Posy is a joyful celebration of the pair’s great friendship, its laughter and games, its ups and downs, as their lives revolve around a wonderful world of play. The brand is enjoying significant growth, now sold to over 30 international broadcasters covering 100 countries worldwide and with Bandai recently announced as Master toy partner alongside nine other licencees.

'PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie' Opens to $46.1M at the Global Box Office

PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie is lapping up a big Box Office win during its opening weekend, earning $23M in the U.S. and $23.1M internationally, giving the latest film based on the beloved CG-animated series a global start is $46.1M.

PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie

The family title had, last week, released in Australia and New Zealand before adding 43 additional markets this session.

In the U.S., PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie received a wide opening on Sept. 28, and is playing in 3989 theaters, where it is currently No. 1 at the Box Office, earning $6.8M on Friday, 9.6M on Saturday, and $6.5M on Sunday (3-day $23M/Wk 1).

With decent reviews and strong audience scores, word of mouth is strong with these pups, who are out in just 45 (53%) of the international marketplace to date. On a like-for-like basis including previews, the overseas opening result is 70% ahead of 2021's Paw Patrol: The Movie, giving this Cal Brunker-directed title the best opening for the franchise. Paw Patrol: The Movie grossed $140 million globally, a notable figure amid the pandemic as it debuted day-and-date on Paramount+.

Amid heavy competition, but also with praise from local media, China opened to $5.3M. Mexico was next at a No. 1 start of $2.8M, followed by Germany (No. 1/$2.4M), Italy (No. 2/$800K) and Czech Republic (No. 1/$700K). In holds, Australia delivered another $1M, up 11% from last week’s start ($2.8M cume) and NZ jumped 66% at No. 1 with a $480K total to date. 

Next week, 12 more markets will open including Brazil and Korea. Later markets include Spain, France and the UK in October, followed by Japan in December.

According to Paramount, The Mighty Movie proved true to its title. The film strongly over-indexed in the northeast and Midwest portions of the U.S., over-indexed in the south-central and southeast, while slightly under-indexing in the western U.S. Canada came in with a very good market share of 8.2% (8.7% overall).

Major markets that over-indexed include New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Minneapolis, Detroit, Cleveland and St. Louis, while the major markets that under-indexed included Los Angeles, San Francisco, Toronto, Phoenix, Seattle, Orlando, Denver and San Diego. Top theaters came from L.A., N.Y., San Antonio, Boston, Toronto, Cleveland, Nashville, Phoenix, West Palm Beach (Florida), Odessa (Texas), Austin, Miami and Montreal.

Audience Demos:

  • 90% family
  • 52% female/48% male
  • <7 14%, 7-9 27%, 10-12 5%, 13-17 8%, 18-34 24%, 35+ 22%
  • 46% Cauc/30% Hisp/16% AA/5% Asian/3% NatAm other
  • 60% Excellent/27% Very Good = 87% – Total Positive for parents, 75% definite recommend
  • 61% Great/32% Very Good = 93% – Total Positive for kids, 66% Must see it right away
  • 4.5/5 stars on PostTrak for parents, 5/5 stars for kids
  • ‘A’ CinemaScore, 54% of kids said it exceeded their expectations.

'PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie' Ratings & Recs - Parents

PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie' Ratings & Recs - Kids

The Box Office success for PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie, which cost $30 million to make, during its opening week represents a massive win for Spin Master Entertainment, Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Pictures, as the picture is part of a $14 billion global retail franchise which all three companies get a nice cut from. And successful movies drive toy sales. It was part of Brian Robbins’ plan when he took over the top job at Paramount Pictures Studios to have family brands work at the box office, which also have a rainfall of cash in merchandise, particularly in an entertainment conglomerate that counts the powerful, and evergreen Nickelodeon brand. EntTelligence says Paw Patrol 2 drew 2.3M admissions, with close to half of the pic’s tickets being sold at child pricing.

Some of the stunts which Paramount did to bark up this latest sequel included getting the film in the Guiness Book of World Records with the most dogs in attendance at a movie screening, with 219 at the Autry Museum of American History at Griffith Park in Los Angeles, CA. Costume characters from the film flooded zoos, a White Sox game in Chicago, and children’s hospitals, as well as on-air appearances in all markets. There was an immersive 5,5k square foot Paw Patrol 2 movie experience in Columbus Circle, which ended with a collectible pup tag, photo opp and Dance PAWty, and a gift shop featuring 24 SKUs of PAW Patrol product for purchase. There were also lyric videos created for the three original songs featured in the sequel, including Down Like That by Bryson Tiller, Bark to the Beat by McKenna Grace and Blackbear, and Learning to Fly by Christina Aguilera. 

Paramount had custom games and interactive ads integrated into high impact, brand-safe platforms for kids, including the popular gaming site Poptropica Jr., which created a mini-island featuring all the mighty pups. There were also energetic dance videos to GoNoodle, helping students in classrooms get their wiggles out to a PAW Patrol beat. Noggin created two learning-based games exclusive to their app.

Brand partners, who helped garner 3 billion impressions for the pic, included Burger King with movie-themed King Jr. Meal, and Dogtopia, which called on all super-pups by encouraging pet parents to share their dog’s super-powers in a first-time film partnership.

Overall, a job well done by Paramount, considering Paw Patrol 2 star Kim Kardashian wasn’t available to constantly tell all her near half billion followers (across TikTok, X, Instagram, Facebook) to go. However, the reality star did drop the trailer on TikTok before the SAG-AFTRA strike started on June 12.

RelishMix reports that the sequel’s social media universe was below other family film comps at just over 117M. However, Paramount cross promotes its own social media channels (21.2M SMU) and Nick Jr. (29.2M SMU) “with extreme video view counts, some with over 100M views each on YouTube playlist loops of clips, which, as usual, very young children adore,” per RelishMix.

“It’s fantastic,” Paramount’s president of domestic distribution Chris Aronson says of the film’s opening weekend. “It’s a testament to the enduring and growing popularity of this property.”

PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie, co-produced by Spin Master Entertainment, cost $30 million. Adding to the riches, its strong ticket sales will be dwarfed by the lucrative consumer products line. The franchise has earned $14 billion in global retail sales since 2014.

“The PAW Patrol movies are not in the league of the Disney, Pixar and Illumination juggernauts, but they’re not designed to be,” says David A. Gross, who runs the movie consulting firm Franchise Entertainment Research. “They cost a fraction of those giants.”

Spin Master Entertainment, Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Pictures showed their faith behind the new movie by ordering a third theatrical film before PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie had opened. PAW Patrol 3 is currently set to release exclusively in theaters in 2026.

About PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie: When a magical meteor crash lands in Adventure City, it gives the PAW Patrol pups superpowers, transforming them into The MIGHTY PUPS! For Skye, the smallest member of the team, her new powers are a dream come true. But things take a turn for the worse when the pups' arch-rival Humdinger breaks out of jail and teams up with a mad scientist to steal the superpowers for the two villains. With the fate of Adventure City hanging in the balance, the Mighty Pups have to stop the supervillains before it's too late, and Skye will need to learn that even the smallest pup can make the biggest difference.

Directed by Cal Brunker from a screenplay by Cal Brunker & Bob Barlen.

The voice cast features Mckenna Grace, Taraji P. Henson, Marsai Martin, Christian Convery, Ron Pardo, Lil Rel Howery, Kim Kardashian, Chris Rock, Serena Williams, Alan Kim, Brice Gonzalez, North West, Saint West, Christian Corrao, Luxton Handspiker, Nylan Parthipan, Callum Shoniker, with James Marsden and Kristen Bell, introducing Finn Lee-Epp.

Producers are by Jennifer Dodge, p.g.a., Laura Clunie, p.g.a., Toni Stevens, p.g.a.; executive producers are Ronnen Harary, Adam Beder, Peter Schlessel.

'Frasier' reboot on Paramount+

This article is for Paramount+ in the U.K. & Ireland. For Paramount+ USA's highlights, click here!

Peak Screaming is here! With Halloween just around the corner, Paramount+ has you covered this month with the streaming premieres of Pet Sematary: Bloodlines, Scream VI, and The Burning Girls, a new horror series starring Samantha Morton that should provide a few chills as the dark nights set in.


October 1

A brand-new reality series, Strip, uncovering the glamorous world of high end strippers working in the hottest club on the Vegas Strip is set to drop as a boxset on Paramount+ UK on Sunday 1st October.
For these women, stripping isn’t just a way to make ends meet; it’s a profession, an art form and a cornerstone of the Vegas economy. Taking us on a journey to Las Vegas, Strip will follow a main cast of twelve women onstage, backstage and outside the club, all determined to be the best in the business. Crazy Horse III Gentlemen’s Club is the hottest strip club in the world, where those at the top can make six figures in a single night. It’s a world of fierce competition, eye-popping outfits and mind-blowing dancing, but with 20,000 strippers working in Las Vegas, it’s a war out there. They have got to earn their place and learn the rules of the strip club if they want to survive.

October 5

Bargain – Limited Series

In the new K-drama series Bargain, men are lured to a remote hotel under the guise of sexual encounters only to be caught in a trafficking ring where their organs are auctioned off to the highest bidder. After a catastrophic earthquake, the victims, traffickers and buyers all are trapped inside the crumbling building. Cut off from the outside world, they must fight to survive the aftermath at any cost.

Bargain stars actors Jin Sun-kyu (Extreme Job), Jun Jong-seo (Money Heist: Korea) and Chang Ryul (My Name) and is an adaptation of director Lee Chung-hyun’s short film of the same name that was released in 2015. All six episodes of the festival-award-winning South Korean drama will premiere on 5 October on Paramount+ 

October 7

Sometimes dead is better…but it would appear nobody has heeded those famous words from Stephen King’s novel because we now have another movie that is loosely based on his dark and disturbing work.

Serving as a prequel to 2019’s Pet Sematary, which was based on the 1983 novel by Stephen King, Pet Sematary: Bloodlines follows young Jud Crandall on his attempt to leave his hometown Ludlow, Maine. Before he’s able to leave he encounters the dark, sinister secrets of the town which holds him back from leaving. Starring Jackson White, Forest Goodluck, Jack Mulhern and Samantha Mathis, premieres 7th October on Paramount+.

October 13

Monster High 2 follows Clawdeen Wolf (Miia Harris), Draculaura (Nayah Damasen) and Frankie Stein (Ceci Balagot) as they enter sophomore year at Monster High. The power of three is put to the test as they face even bigger challenges this year—new students, new powers, evolving friendships, and an even bigger threat that could not only tear their friendship apart, but could change the world forever. The movie will also introduce new character Toralei (Salena Qureshi), a feisty British were-cat, back after a year abroad in Scaris, France. Also airing on Nickelodeon the same day.

Get ready to toss those salads and scramble those eggs as Frasier has re-entered the building! Kelsey Grammer is returning as Dr. Frasier Crane in this revival of the popular comedy series that ended in 2004.

Here’s the official plot synopsis:

“Filmed in front of a live studio audience at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles, the new series follows Frasier Crane (Grammer) in the next chapter of his life as he returns to Boston with new challenges to face, new relationships to forge and an old dream or two to finally fulfill. Frasier has re-entered the building.”

In addition to Grammer, the new series stars Jack Cutmore-Scott as Frasier’s son Freddy; Toks Olagundoye as Olivia, Alan’s colleague and head of the university’s psychology department; Jess Salgueiro as Freddy’s roommate Eve; Anders Keith as Frasier’s nephew David; and Only Fools and Horses star Nicholas Lyndhurst as Frasier’s old college buddy turned university professor Alan.

We just need Paramount Comedy's PText and Mailbox back!

October 19

The Burning Girls is a brand new chilling British horror series based on the novel of the same name by C.J. Tudor. Starring Fantastic Beasts actor Samantha Morton and Bridgerton and Lockwood & Co star Ruby Stokes who play a Vicar and her daughter. Both arrive in a new village named Chapel Croft in hope of a fresh start, however, the community has a dark history where ancient superstitions and mistrust of outsiders are common, a warm welcome is far from guaranteed!

October 21

Scream VI (2023)

In this instalment of the long-running franchise, the survivors of the Ghostface killings leave Woodsboro behind and begin a new life in New York City. Will they be safe in their new surroundings? Well, the movie would be rather pointless if they were.

It’s not long before another series of killings begins as the surviving characters are once again faced with the masked murderer. Who’s beneath the mask this time?

In Scream VI, Melissa Barrera (“Sam Carpenter”), Jasmin Savoy Brown (“Mindy Meeks-Martin”), Mason Gooding (“Chad Meeks-Martin”), Jenna Ortega (“Tara Carpenter”), Hayden Panettiere (“Kirby Reed”) and Courteney Cox (“Gale Weathers”) return to their roles in the franchise alongside Jack Champion, Henry Czerny, Liana Liberato, Dermot Mulroney, Devyn Nekoda, Tony Revolori, Josh Segarra, and Samara Weaving.

October 28

The brand new 8-part drama series based on the novel by Thomas Mallon, Fellow Travelers is an epic love story and political thriller, chronicling the romance of two very different men who start a relationship just as Joseph McCarthy and Roy Cohn declare war on “subversives and sexual deviants.”

Hawkins Fuller, played by Matt Bomer, maintains a financially rewarding, behind-the scenes career in politics. Hawkins avoids emotional entanglements – until he meets Tim Laughlin, played by Jonathan Bailey, a young man brimming with idealism and religious faith. Over the course of four decades, follow five main characters as they cross paths through the Vietnam War protests of the 1960s, the drug-fuelled disco hedonism of the 1970s and the AIDS crisis of the 1980s, while facing obstacles in the world and in themselves.
