WONDER the first live action US film to have an American Sign Language interpretation available now

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 hit WONDER 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.

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends…
