A billboard company in Cleveland, where the Republican Party will hold its convention next week, has rejected a giant ad promoting the release of "God's Not Dead 2" for being "too incendiary," but a quote by former President Ronald Reagan used on a pro-atheist billboard has been approved.
The Hollywood Reporter said on Wednesday that the "God's Not Dead 2" ad was rejected by Orange Barrel Media for its text, which reads: "I'd rather stand with God and be judged by the world than stand with the world and be judged by God."
Orange Barrel reportedly told Pure Flix, the distributor, that it did not like the phrase "judged by God," claiming that it was "too political" and "way too incendiary." more >>
Life.Church founder and pastor Craig Groeschel sees the hit 2015 movie "Creed" as showcasing the importance of family and the Ecclesiastes verse on two being better than one.
In the first entry in his summer series "At the Movies," Groeschel focused his analysis of the Rocky sequel on Ecclesiastes 4:9-10: "Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up."
The gripping apocalyptic adventure film about the rapture and tribulation "Vanished: Left Behind: Next Generation," will be in theaters nationwide for one night only coming this September.
Targeting a new generation of moviegoers, the film is inspired by The New York Times best-selling book series Left Behind by authors Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. The series is no stranger to the big screen and was made popular by actor Kirk Cameron 16 years ago and more recently by Nicholas Cage in 2014. However, "Vanished: Left Behind: Next Generation," seeks a new audience by telling the story from the perspective of young adults.
Piggybacking off of the dramatic action movies "Twilight" and "The Hunger Games," the new feature, which will be in theaters on Sept. 28, hopes to take its characters beyond their own fears and desires, opening them to the questions of purpose, and whether their lives and choices really matter. more >>
The newly released film "Caged No More," featuring Kevin Sorbo, targets the world's fastest-growing crime and the film's producer, Lisa Arnold, says Christians must lead the charge in the fight against human trafficking.
Inspired by real life events, "Caged No More" is meant to spread awareness about trafficking victims by telling the story of Aggie Prejean, a godmother on a desperate search to find sisters Skye and Elle, who were kidnapped by their father (Kevin Sorbo).
As the details behind the girls' disappearance begins to unravel, it's discovered their father has taken them overseas to be sold into slavery to settle a drug debt. Prejean enlists the help of the girls' uncle (also played by Sorbo), a well-respected local philanthropist, and his son, Wil (Alan Powell), who's a former special forces soldier, to find and rescue the girls. A global hunt ensues, and the team stops at nothing to ensure the girls are safely returned home. more >>

In a limited theatrical release, "The Fight Within" is set to be an action-packed mashup of faith, fighting and romance.
In the film, Logan Chandler is a rising star in the world of mixed martial arts, but when his father, an MMA champion, dies while training him, Logan leaves the ring unsure of who he is anymore. He finds romance with a young woman of deep faith and seeks to overcome a troubled past and establish a new life. His new faith is tested when a local MMA professional — whose only losing fight was to Logan — forces him back into the cage.
"Faith films tend to draw faith audiences," Jim Davis, executive producer and screenwriter said in a statement given to The Christian Post. "This movie should also engage people with no sense of faith because inner struggle is universal. A cage and a fight are spot-on metaphors to show a young man coming to terms with who he is and what life brings." more >>
