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 >>

Movies that include giants or tiny creatures can be some of the most enjoyable films on the big screen — and they often are accompanied by great life lessons for children and parents, too.
Consider, for example, the film and book Horton Hears A Who!, which included the famous phrase "a person's a person no matter how small." It originally was written by Dr. Seuss as a message about bigotry against Japanese people, but in recent years has been used by the pro-life cause in a powerful way.
In the biblical realm, the true story of David and Goliath displayed the power of God in the midst of a seemingly impossible situation, yet it also has been used by many pastors as a symbol of how God can slay everyday problems. more >>
An unauthorized book about the TV series "Star Trek" claims that a fight between Captain Kirk and an alien who had taken the form of Jesus Christ was originally in the script for "Star Trek: The Motion Picture."
The book, The Fifty-Year Mission: The First 25 Years, which is being released as fans await the summer movie "Star Trek Beyond," reveals that the 1979 movie, written by series creator Gene Roddenberry in 1975, ended with Kirk encountering an alien who had "assumed the image of Jesus Christ." That encounter then led to a fist fight on a bridge that had Kirk punching the Savior in the face.
It further claims that Paul McCartney, Barry Diller and John F. Kennedy were also written into the script. more >>
