The directors of 'Captain America 3' hope to surprise the audience with the new film by creating a unique plot that will keep them engaged.
Film makers Anthony and Joe Russo, who also worked on the previous movie 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' recently spoke to IGN.com about the sequel and if it will keep the same tone as the 2014 smash.
"From a narrative or tonal standpoint, we don't want to keep delivering the same movie. I know, as a fan, when I go to a film, I prefer to be surprised," said Joe Russo to the publication. "I know, as a fan, when I go to a film, I prefer to be surprised." more >>
Can you imagine a television program airing in America that portrayed Muhammad as a foul-mouthed pothead? Given that earlier this year ABC canceled Alice in Arabia—a show about an Arab-American who goes to live with her grandparents in Saudi Arabia—because CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations) complained that the show relied on stereotypes of Muslims, it seems highly unlikely. Yet Black Jesus –the latest reminder that Christianity is the only major religion it is universally permissible to denigrate—began airing August 7 on Adult Swim.
Why did this show make it past the network censors while a similar show about Muhammad never would have? Probably for the same reason P*ss Christ—a 1987 photograph of a crucifix submerged in the "artist's" urine—was exhibited in the Stux Gallery in New York and won an award for visual arts from the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts. And the same reason Madonna could perform her single Live to Tell wearing a crown of thorns while suspended from a giant cross. In America, mocking Christianity has gone from being considered a sign of poor taste to the mark of artistic courage.
Although Megan Kelly was nearly "crucified" for affirming that Jesus was white, this series takes the issue of Jesus' ethnicity to the point of absurdity. Black Jesus began as a series of shorter skits on YouTube, where its antics fit well with the millions of hours of similarly amateurish material. The show has one joke: a black man in Compton dresses in robes suitable for a middle school play and calls himself Jesus. He's a nice enough guy, but he spends his days drinking forties, smoking joints, and dropping the f-bomb. And if you don't think that's just hilarious, then according to Robert Lloyd of the Chicago Tribune, you are an uptight religious fanatic who needs to relax. Lloyd writes: more >>
The parents of a 13-year-old Midlothian, Texas, teen who has captured the hearts of his entire community, plan to share their son's battle over the last four years with stage 4 neuroblastoma, a rare type of childhood cancer, in a documentary made by the Christian film ministry I am Second.
Over this past weekend, individuals gave more than $20,000 within 72 hours for a crowdfunding campaign to raise support for the short-form documentary about the journey of Ethan Hallmark. The crowdfunding campaign, which began on August 22, has a goal of raising a total of $40,000 by October 6, and is at over $27,000 at the time this article was published.
"Four years ago, Ethan was just another kid baseball player with the dream of being a doctor," I am Second filmmakers said on Tuesday. "Since his diagnosis, he has become an involuntary hero who has demonstrated to his family, friends and community incredible courage and shares a message of hope greater than this terminal disease." more >>
The Maze Runner is the first book in a trilogy which will be adapted into a film set for a Sept. 19 premiere. The author of the trilogy is James Dashner, with the young-adult post-apocalyptic science fiction series to soon have a film trilogy.
The Maze Runner tells the story of a group of boys of varying age living in a dystopian society within a place called the Glade, situated in the middle of a sprawling and ever-changing maze. The book's premise is somewhat similar to William Goulding's "Lord of the Flies," where a group of young boys find a way to create and live in a society totally devoid of adults.
The story of the Maze Runner starts when a boy named Thomas arrives in the Glade in a sort of black box, with no memories of his past except only for his name. He later learns that new boys come once a month in the box, the same way Thomas arrived. more >>
