    2. Profound theme makes "Trolls" movie entertaining for both young and old 
    “Trolls” has a strong story, great characters and fantastic music, but at its heart, it explores the nature of happiness, a subject that fascinates its filmmakers. “We wanted to explore the idea that everyone is born with an innate sense of happiness that lives inside them,” says director Mike Mitchell. “We wanted to find out: Where does happiness come from? What happens when you get it and what happens when you lose it?,” adds co-director Walt Dohrn.        

    “Trolls” is a funny and irreverent new movie from DreamWorks Animation, which is all about happiness. Anna Kendrick stars as the voice of Poppy, the optimistic and relentlessly positive leader of the Trolls, while Justin Timberlake lends his voice to Branch, who is fearful and over-cautious. "Trolls" opens November 2 in cinemas nationwide. Watch the latest trailer below:

    Thirteen-month-old twins Jadon and Anias McDonald were born with craniopagus, a condition where they share portions of their skull and brain tissues. Last October 14, at the Children's Hospital at Montefiore in New York, with a team of 40 experts and more than 20 hours of surgery, they were successfully separated. Nonetheless, the two boys are facing "a long road of recovery and rehabilitation," the Montefiore said in a statement. On Facebook, the twins' mother Nicole McDonald posted a message of relief right after the surgery: "And then there were two... :)Skull reconstruction is underway. I was told Anias "misbehaved" but now both boys are stable. Still in disbelief! God is good! What an amazing group of doctors we have!!! Way to go team! Way to go my sweet babies! Mommy and daddy are here waiting for you...We love you more than life." (livescience.com)
