Three decades after what was to be his break-out role as a dashing, skilled fighter jet pilot, actor Tom Cruise is now more than likely to return as Maverick in the highly-anticipated sequel to his 1986 film, "Top Gun," currently referred to as "Top Gun 2."
The person to broke the news is co-producer and Skydance CEO David Ellison, who also happens to be a pilot himself, during a press junket for "Terminator Genisys" on Friday.
"Justin Marks is writing the screenplay right now," Ellison said. "He has a phenomenal take to really update that world for what fighter pilots in the Navy has turned into today." more >>
Ken Ham's Answers in Genesis group, which has reviewed each episode of the "A.D. The Bible Continues" miniseries that aired on NBC, has written in its conclusion that the show's last episode was "absolutely dismal," and said the show does not deserve a second season.
"Theologically and historically, the writers of this show have been sloppy at best and calculatingly agenda-driven at the expense of Scripture at worst. Indeed the 'A.D.' for this 12th (and final for now) installment stands for 'Absolutely Dismal,'" AiG's in-depth review states.
The Creationist organization lists the numerous historical and biblical inaccuracies it found in the last episode, which include big spoilers concerning the plot and characters. more >>
Donnie McClurkin, the pastor and gospel music singer who said God delivered him from "the curse" of homosexuality, is now under fire from critics after speaking out against last Friday's U.S. Supreme Court ruling which made same-sex marriage legal nationwide.
McClurkin, 55, received some harsh criticism after he shared his interpretation of the Bible's position on homosexuality on Facebook last Friday.
"We've just received the answer from man's Supreme Court ... we already received the answer from GOD," the pastor of Perfecting Faith Church in New York wrote. "With NO REGARD to what the Supreme Court of MAN decrees ... no matter what MY past was or feelings & struggles ... GOD has set the only standard for marriage to be between man and woman ... in biology, in physiology, in history, biblically & scripturally and that ... I will NEVER speak against!" more >>
Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham has spoken out against the upcoming Disney Pixar film "The Good Dinosaur," which he said is likely to have evolution themes. Ham also said that even though some find the idea "ridiculous," there is "plenty of evidence" to show that dinosaurs and man once lived together.
In a blog post on his Answers in Genesis website earlier this week, Ham commented on the upcoming "The Good Dinosaur" movie, about a relationship between a human boy and a dinosaur, which is set to be released in November.
Ham noted that it's rare that Hollywood portrays dinosaurs and humans living together, but said that that the film's trailer exposes its "evolutionary presuppositions." more >>
The live-action film adaptation of popular adventure video "Uncharted" just hit a major hitch – it has lost its director, Seth Gordon. Gordon's exit was prompted by a recent decision by Sony Pictures' head Tom Rothman to change "creative direction" when it came to the movie, according to reports.
Rothman had allegedly been thinking about the future of the project since he took over as chief of the studio, according to The Wrap. However, his recent decision was not just simply cutting the movie's budget, but instead taking "a new creative direction" for the movie.
