While there is still no official word from the Walt Disney Animation Studios on any details of the "Frozen" sequel, speculations about the film have been popping up left and right since it was announced in March of this year.
With so much excitement over "Frozen 2" and so much pressure on the production staff to make a film that will top - or at least be as good as - the commercially successful and critically acclaimed "Frozen," it's no wonder that Disney CEO Bob Iger has announced that the company will not fast-track the film. In January, Iger said: "We're not demanding speed. We're demanding excellence."
Meanwhile, directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, the duo who brought the beloved blockbuster hit "Frozen" to life, are returning to direct the sequel. And while Buck told MTV News that the directors had just got back together and started brainstorming, he did say that they had a very strong overall concept in place. more >>
Meagan Good has been booked with consistent acting jobs for the past four years, but she insists that God fulfills her way more than her career.
"I pray and read my Bible every single day, I stay close to God because He's what matters the most; everything else is secondary," Good said in a Los Angeles Sentinel report. "My career can never give me what God can give me."
The 34-year-old actress currently stars in the FOX television show "Minority Report" but had to get used to the idea of consistently working on the small screen after building her career upon movie roles. In 2013, Good starred in the ABC series "Deception," which she was initially apprehensive about. more >>
Just when it seemed the highly anticipated "God's Not Dead 2" cast couldn't get any bigger, GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee revealed that he has a cameo appearance in the star-studded film.
"It was a real honor and thrill to film a scene for the movie," Huckabee told The Christian Post. "A few years ago, such a plot would seem like fiction, but in light of how Christianity is being criminalized in America, this film depicts life in America for those of faith."
Although Huckabee is on the campaign trail seeking the Republican nomination for president, Pure Flix Entertainment announced this week that the former Arkansas governor is going to be on the big screen in "God's Not Dead 2," which is set to release on April 1, 2016. more >>
The advertisement titled "Just Pray," which features Christians reciting the Lord's Prayer, was banned by top British cinemas because of its religious theme.
"Just Pray," which shows Christians from different backgrounds reciting the Lord's Prayer, was targeted to be shown next month before "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" plays. But the Digital Cinema Media (DCM) agency rejected the 60-second ad because it could offend viewers with other religion, according to The Blaze.
DCM is the body responsible for booking advertisements for 80 percent of the cinemas in the United Kingdom. In a statement cited by BBC, the agency explained that they block all politically and religiously themed ads and "Just Pray" is no exception, CNN reports. more >>
Atheist professor and author Richard Dawkins has spoken out against the U.K.'s leading cinema chains refusing to screen a Church of England ad about the Lord's Prayer.
Dawkins said that there is nothing offensive about the 60-second ad, which promote the popular Christian prayer, and said that the fear that some might be offended should not have stopped cinema chains from accepting the ad.
The Guardian reported that Dawkins deleted an initial tweet on the issue after realizing it was a matter of commercial judgment rather than freedom of speech, as the U.K. government is not involved in the debate, but also clarified: more >>
NEW YORK — When you think about heroes of the faith, Billy Graham, John Wesley and others may come to mind. But in the film "Return to the Hiding Place," the sequel to "Hiding Place," viewers are given an intriguing look into the sacrifice of Corrie ten Boom, a brave woman who risks her life to help Jews escape the Nazi Holocaust. The film's lead actress, Rachel Spencer-Hewitt, opens up to The Christian Post about the impact that powerful women such as ten Boom can have on the generations to come.
"Return to the Hiding Place" chronicles a time in history when Nazis begin killing Jews in Holland and a group of youth fight to save the innocent. Spencer-Hewitt plays ten Boom's niece, Aty Van Woerdan, who is part of the student resistance against the Nazis and is engaged to the resistance leader.
Among the students is Hans Poley, an intelligent young physicist who finds refuge with ten Boom after refusing to join the Nazis. "Return to the Hiding Place" is inspired by Poley's book of the same name. Poley and his friends begin their resistance movement at their university, which eventually leads to the transportation of Jews to ten Boom's hiding place. more >>
