Travis Freeman is set to inspire thousands in the upcoming film "23 Blast" as his story of faith, love and personal courage hits this fall.
Today, Freeman is a college professor and a pastor, but at the tender age of 12, he tragically lost his eyesight to bacterial meningitis. Instead of slipping into depression and losing his spot on his high school football team, Freeman relied heavily on his faith as well as the support of his family, friends, and coaches. Discussing "23 Blast" as well as his autobiography "Lights Out," Freeman explained he has no memory of the first days following his blindness, but can recall his unshakeable faith.
"My parents have always said that when I heard I wouldn't see again, that I looked at them and said, 'I believe I will see again, but if I don't, I can't wait to see what God going to do with this,'" Freeman shared while speaking to The Christian Post. more >>
It has been a year since director Paul W.S. Anderson confirmed director and writing the sixth installment of the video game-turned-movie franchise "Resident Evil." Lead actress Milla Jovovich said previously that the sequel will come out sometime in 2015. Moreover, Anderson said that the film will have a working title "Resident Evil: The Final Chapter" suggesting that this will be the finale for the zombie-slaying flick.
It was initially going to be filmed at Johannesburg and Cape Town in South Africa last month but plans were drastically changed when Jovovich announced in her social media account that she's pregnant with her second child.
"This was originally going to be a post to tell you how excited I am about flying to Cape Town to begin working on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. But… My husband Paul and I just discovered that we are expecting another baby!!!" she wrote on her Facebook page. more >>
"Dolphin Tale 2" stars Nathan Gamble and Cozi Zuehlsdorff recently applauded the Hollywood film industry for the increase in faith-based films.
Nearly three years after the release of the popular family film "Dolphin Tale," the teens, both age 16, are back as Sawyer Nelson (Gamble) and Hazel Haskett (Zuehlsdorff) in the follow-up sequel. They recently commended the industry for producing more faith-based films but acknowledged that finding wholsesome roles in Hollywood is still somewhat of a "challenge."
"It's definitely a challenge," Gamble told reporters. "It's really hard to find wholesome, good movies out there and I think the 'Dolphin Tale' is really a blessing and we get to do it twice! ... I think Hollywood is slowly figuring out that [faith-based] movies work." more >>
A new film, "Holy Ghost," is making its world premiere this week, bringing evidence of God's real-life presence on Earth to audiences everywhere on Saturday, Sept. 6.
The first film of its kind, "Holy Ghost" is a clear departure from the entertainment industry's business model since it is entirely unscripted. Furthermore, the film features two members of the heavy metal band Korn, several acclaimed recording artists, recognized faith leaders, authors and more. Wanderlust Production's "Holy Ghost" will also see appearances by DeVon Franklin, Lenny Kravitz, and Korn's Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu. Darren Wilson, who helmed "Holy Ghost," explained his goal of capturing actual instances of miraculous healing and other seemingly impossible events in improbable places.
"I come from an artistic home, and I've always believed that the best art is the most fearless art," the director said in a statement. "That's why I am never interested in playing it safe or avoiding controversy as a filmmaker. When I decided to make a movie about this largely unknown subject, it was clearly understood that we would be pushing boundaries, both for Christian and non-Christian audiences alike. At the end of the day, 'Holy Ghost' is fundamentally a film about risk. We believe audiences will find it fresh, appealing, and authentic - an unexpected spiritual journey filled with hope and surprise." more >>
