Art Hooker, a filmmaker who says he told an unsaved Lecrae to rap for Jesus back in 1998, has been working on a documentary film about the rapper and the Unashamed Movement that dates back to 2010 and features commentary from Pastors John Piper and Matt Chandler.
.Hooker expects the film, titled "Unashamed World," to release in 2016, according to Rapzilla.
"Unashamed World" documents the rise of Lecrae and Reach Records. It was originally slated for a 2010/2011 launch, however, Hooker held off on releasing it due to the change in trajectory for the rapper's career as doors in the mainstream music world began to open up for Lecrae around that time. more >>

Some things are just so hard to let go and one of those is the "Frozen" movie. After a very successful animated film in 2013, Queen Elsa and Princess Anna is coming back to the big screen for a sequel which has been confirmed by Disney earlier this year. No doubt that fans, adults and children alike, are excited with what directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee will be serving to the table for them this time.

According to a report in IGN, Ubisoft Motion Pictures has shared details, including a photo of the character that will be played by lead Michael Fassbender.
The report cited Yahoo news as their source and according to the report, Fassbender is going to play a new assassin and not an existing assassin character in any of the games in the series, like Desmond Miles or Ezio Auditore da Firenze. A new character was created especially for the movie, going by the name Callum Lynch.
Lynch lives in a modern-day setting, but as the story goes, he eventually finds out that he is a descendant of a secret society of Assassin's. He uses the Animus to go back in time and "relive the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar." As he does this, he gains skills and expertise as an assassin which he needs to fight rival Knights Templar when he goes back to his present-day life. more >>
