It's not too hard to imagine that Hallmark's TV movie "Signed, Sealed, Delivered for Christmas" — produced and written by Martha Williamson, the creative visionary behind the ground-breaking TV show "Touched by an Angel" — premiering on Sunday will become a Christmas classic, early reviews say as much.
Crown Media Family Networks recently announced that the Hallmark Channel original weekly scripted series, "Signed, Sealed, Delivered," also produced and written by Williamson, will move to sister network Hallmark Movies & Mysteries as a movie franchise consisting of a series of two-hour original films. Debuting on Nov. 23 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, 8C, "Signed, Sealed, Delivered for Christmas" will be the first movie in the franchise, with three more slated for 2015.
"Signed, Sealed, Delivered," the weekly series, is described as a comedic drama that follows the lives of a group of postal workers who transform themselves into an untraditional team of detectives to track down intended recipients of undeliverable mail. Their missions take them out of the office into an unpredictable world where redirected letters and packages can save lives, solve crimes, reunite old loves and change futures by arriving late but somehow on time. more >>
Kirk Cameron is defending his new film "Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas" from negative reviews by appealing to his fans this week.
The "Fireproof" star's latest film opened in just 410 theaters on Nov. 14 and managed to rake in a little over $1 million in its first weekend, according to The Wrap. However, the success comes as a surprise considering the reviews garnered by the film. As a result, Cameron took to his Facebook page urging fans to change the "Saving Christmas" rating on RottenTomatos.com on Thursday.
One of the most anticipated young adult fiction films, "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1," has met cinemas and eager fans went and watched the film. While most young adult audiences may enjoy the ruin of a dystopian oppressive leadership such as the Capitol, adults may not like the film, according to reviews.
The third "Hunger Games" film has taken the direction of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows," splitting the book into two films. BBC's Owen Gleiberman said that "Part 1 is basically all dragging exposition" after mentioning that at this point in the movie, Katniss is no longer sure she wants to be "the poster girl for revolution."
Everything that happened in the previous two films has lead up to the rise of the oppressed districts with the real possibility that the Capitol may be overthrown. The resistance asks Katniss if she is willing to become the icon of the revolution but she seems neither pleased nor interested. As Gleiberman points out, Katniss instead asks "What about Peeta? Is he alive?" more >>

The trailer for Disney's live action "Cinderella" has been released, and the classic children's story proves to be as magical as ever as within the first 24 hours, the trailer was viewed 4.2 million times on Youtube and 33 million times on Facebook. This is the biggest showing in history for a Disney movie, excluding Marvel releases.
While "Cinderella" has been rebooted several times over the past years with Whitney Houston and Brandy's musical version, and Drew Barrymore's "Ever After" getting critical acclaim for its depiction of a stronger and more independent lead character, the 2015 version is staying true to the original story, but with subtle changes.
The latest "Cinderella" version keeps most of the story intact— the heroine is still maltreated by her stepmother and her equally vindictive stepsisters, and she still has to leave the ball at the stroke of midnight. And of course, her magical transformation aided by her fairy godmother is one of the scenes that can be viewed in the trailer. more >>
