NEW YORK — Comedian and actor Kevin James could be one of the most lovable guys in Hollywood, according to some of his co-stars in "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2," who didn't have a bad word to say about him during the film's world premiere in New York City on Saturday.
James, a self-professing Catholic who credited his faith as something that helps him in every aspect of his life during a previous interview with The Christian Post, remains humble despite his fame and success in television and film.
"My faith helps me in everything; it shapes me and I always try to glorify Him in movies," he told CP in 2012. "We all make mistakes, and if I played an angel every time I'd be out of the business. There are faulted people, and there is good and evil." more >>
"The Age of Adaline," also known as "Adaline", is a romance fantasy film that stars Blake Lively, Kathy Baker, Michiel Huisman, Harrison Ford, and Ellen Burstyn. The upcoming film directed by Lee Toland Krieger and written by J. Mills Goodloe and Salvador Paskowitz will hit theaters on April 24, 2015.
"Adaline" is a story of a 29-year old woman from the 1900s who becomes ageless after a near-fatal accident one icy night. "Adaline" keeps her secret and embarks on an epic journey around the world throughout the 20th century. After decades of living and journeying alone, she meets a man whom she values more than her immortality.
Just like the film, the production took a long journey with several changes in the lead stars and director. The title role was initially offered to Katherine Heigl, but the actress withdrew from the production. The same role was offered to Natalie Portman, but the multi-awarded actress did not accept the title role. Prior to Lee Toland Krieger, Lakeshore also considered several directors. more >>

Leigh Whannell, who appeared in the first two "Insidious" films and is now directing its third installment, and Lin Shaye, who plays the character Elise, recently shared some interesting details about the "Insidious: Chapter 3."
Whannell admitted that he admired what James Wan, the franchise's former helmer, did with the first films and that it was a surmountable task to even "equal" his works.
"It did seem like the logical fit for me to direct having written the first two films. I had my own fears about it. I had fears about living up to what James did, because he is such a good horror director," he said. more >>
The recent announcement from Marvel indicates that the new Spider-Man will still be Peter Parker and not the rumored Miles Morales.
The news came after Marvel struck a deal with Sony Pictures, who owns the said superhero franchise, to revive the web slinging New Yorker by first featuring him in MCU's upcoming big screen offering, "Captain America: Civil War" with Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America and Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron-Man on May 6, 2016.
After the attached comeback, a new Spider-Man standalone reboot will be on its way this July 28, 2017. This would be the Web-Slinger's third reboot film after the Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield-led movies. more >>
The latest video-game movie adaptation that has gamers raving about is Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed. The film, which started production and will start shooting soon, is slated for release in December of 2016.
