"Dolphin Tale 2" stars Nathan Gamble and Cozi Zuehlsdorff recently applauded the Hollywood film industry for the increase in faith-based films.
Nearly three years after the release of the popular family film "Dolphin Tale," the teens, both age 16, are back as Sawyer Nelson (Gamble) and Hazel Haskett (Zuehlsdorff) in the follow-up sequel. They recently commended the industry for producing more faith-based films but acknowledged that finding wholsesome roles in Hollywood is still somewhat of a "challenge."
"It's definitely a challenge," Nelson told reporters. "It's really hard to find wholesome, good movies out there and I think the 'Dolphin Tale' is really a blessing and we get to do it twice! ... I think Hollywood is slowly figuring out that [faith-based] movies work." more >>
A new film, "Holy Ghost," is making its world premiere this week, bringing evidence of God's real-life presence on Earth to audiences everywhere on Saturday, Sept. 6.
The first film of its kind, "Holy Ghost" is a clear departure from the entertainment industry's business model since it is entirely unscripted. Furthermore, the film features two members of the heavy metal band Korn, several acclaimed recording artists, recognized faith leaders, authors and more. Wanderlust Production's "Holy Ghost" will also see appearances by DeVon Franklin, Lenny Kravitz, and Korn's Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu. Darren Wilson, who helmed "Holy Ghost," explained his goal of capturing actual instances of miraculous healing and other seemingly impossible events in improbable places.
"I come from an artistic home, and I've always believed that the best art is the most fearless art," the director said in a statement. "That's why I am never interested in playing it safe or avoiding controversy as a filmmaker. When I decided to make a movie about this largely unknown subject, it was clearly understood that we would be pushing boundaries, both for Christian and non-Christian audiences alike. At the end of the day, 'Holy Ghost' is fundamentally a film about risk. We believe audiences will find it fresh, appealing, and authentic - an unexpected spiritual journey filled with hope and surprise." more >>
After almost 30 years, the supernatural comedy film "Ghostbusters" still remains one of the most favorite films across languages and ages and is now rumored to once again hit the theaters for its third full-length feature sequel, "Ghostbusters 3."
It has been previously reported that Columbia Pictures was rooting to make the next installment. Delays and other issues, including Bill Murray's (Dr. Peter Venkman) refusal to participate quelled the project.
With the death of Harold Ramis (Dr. Egon Spengler), director and producer for the two Ghostbuster films Ivan Reitman stepped down from the directional chair. Latest rumors now indicate "Bridesmaids" director Paul Feig is in talks to helm the upcoming film. more >>

The "Transformers" film franchise is one of the biggest blockbuster hit franchises and it shows no signs of stopping. The next one is still a few years away, however, most likely during the summer of 2017. That will be the least discomforting news though as the next one will be taking a new direction.
Earlier this month, Michael Bay has confirmed that he won't be directing the next "Transformers" film to pursue other film projects. He made the announcement, half-heartedly at first, a few hours before the premiere of "Transformers: Age of Extinction."
"There's a lot that's unexplored, but that's for the next director to figure out. They're hard movies to do and it takes every day for two years. They're fun, but they're hard," Bay said. more >>

Bruckheimer, however, is still adamant in creating the sequel as Paramount Pictures, Tom Cruise, and Val Kilmer have all expressed their interest in making it happen.
"For 30 years we've been trying to make a sequel and we're not going to stop. We still want to do it with Tom [Cruise] and Paramount are still interested in making it," Bruckheimer over a year ago according to FlickeringMyth. more >>
