Captain America: Civil War hasn't hit U.S. theaters just yet, but the latest American superhero film from Marvel Comics already made a whopping $200.2 million in the first weekend of its release in movie theaters overseas.
It certainly looks like the summer will be made up of blockbusters all season long, and this Disney-Marvel collaboration has the makings of surpassing the earnings of "Iron Man 3" and "Avengers," according to Variety. Although it is described as a sequel, the way it is receiving praise, at least in the overseas market, makes it more like a separate installment.
There is more than enough good reason why "Captain America: Civil War" made an impressive weekend debut. Aside from the popularity of Chris Evans' character, the intricate and intriguing plot is more than enough to convince moviegoers not to miss it. Captain America's clash with Iron Man, played by Robert Downey Jr., is like the Avengers' version of Batman vs Superman, although it came with more positive reviews. Aside from those two regulars, the film also introduces Spiderman and Black Panther, played by Tom Holland and Chadwick Boseman respectively. more >>

Production of the new Maze Runner film has been halted indefinitely after Dylan O'Brien, who plays the lead role, suffered an injury on set, which reportedly will require him to rest in order to fully recover. The injury was reportedly obtained while shooting a scene back in March.

The special one-night event, "Come to the Garden – On Stage!", which emphasizes the importance of heavenly beings, is being brought to the big screen by Fathom Events and Eakin Films on May 3. The son of three-time Grammy Award winner Michael W. Smith, Tyler Michael Smith, opened up to The Christian Post about his involvement in the project, his belief in angels and the impact his father has made on his life.
"I obviously grew up in a musical home. My dad being Michael W. Smith, he's been doing music since before I was born, so I was definitely born into it. It was always just a normal part of my life," Smith told CP.
Starting as early as age 5 with piano lessons, the successful composer has made music for a variety of different companies including Sony Pictures, Carmike Cinemas, Coca-Cola, and Cinemacon. He credits his love for making music to his father. more >>
Being the latest actor to take on the high pressure role of portraying the son of God, Ewan McGregor says when he agreed to star in "Last Days in the Desert" he decided not to focus on the Divine nature of Jesus Christ.
"The film is very much about the human side of Jesus, because I don't know how you go about shooting the Divine side," McGregor told the New York Daily News. "I did quite a bit of research on Jesus going in … reading all these books about who Jesus was and who He wasn't and that wasn't helpful to me."
The movie will open on May 13 and tells the story of Jesus Christ being tempted by the devil while wandering in the desert for 40 days. Instead of focusing on Yahushua, or Jesus in Hebrew, as a higher power, the 45-year-old McGregor, who also plays Satan in the film, explained how he got into character. more >>
The end of Sean Combs has come, but it's not what you think. The American rapper who goes by several aliases, but is more popularly known as P. Diddy and Puff Daddy, has proclaimed that he is officially retiring from the music scene and will instead focus on an acting career.
The revelation was made by Combs in an interview for the upcoming issue of Cigar Aficionado magazine. He told the magazine that his music days are soon to be over. "I'm going to put out my last album and devote 100 percent of my time to doing films," he said. He mentioned that releasing a final album right before making an exit is the best way to stop, comparing it to a victory lap. He also said that he wants one final world tour and he wants to enjoy every bit of it.
The 46-year old is one of the most important symbols in rap in history. He has consistently shown how he could stand the test of time, almost two decades after he released his very first album as a solo artist. In all those years, he managed to release five studio albums, making him one of the richest and most successful African-American artists not only in this generation, but in the entire history of rap music. more >>
