A brand-new faith-based film "The Song" tells a promising a story of love and redemption all while staying true to the Song of Solomon, says the film's star.
"The Song" stars Alan Powell as Jed King, a singer-songwriter whose wealth and fame leads to temptations that threaten to ruin his marriage. After Jed commits adultery, he finds his marriage and his career at a crossroads. Discussing the film one week before its Sept. 26 premiere, Powell claimed that his character's extra-marital affair follows what he believes to be the "outrageous adultery" found in the Song of Solomon.
"Well ultimately it's a story about the life of Solomon," the actor explained to The Christian Post. "It's a modern day telling of the Song of Solomon, and Solomon certainly committed adultery - outrageous, extreme adultery - to the point that he married 700-something additional women, and then had 300 concubines as well. So I think if you're going to stay true to the text, which the filmmakers wanted to do, you have to go there. And also, not just that, but in the interest of being real and honest, people do make that mistake. They do commit adultery. So to stay true to the text, it was a necessary step." more >>
The Marvel Film Universe has met a phenomenal success with not only the comic book fans but also with those who have not been initiated with comic books. One of the franchises, Captain America, has only premiered its second film "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" earlier this year and a third title is already scheduled for release on 2016.
Rumors and plot details have only begun to surface on the Internet as to what the subtitle will be for the third Captain America movie as well as what story it will be following. Screenrant.com however has already reported that a script and a subtitle for the third title is already completed, with one of the directors labelling it as "outstanding."

Biblical movies are quite popular right now, and the trend continues with the release of "Wayward: The Prodigal Son," due out on Nov. 7.
As may be expected, "Wayward" offers a modern telling of the story of the prodigal son, found in the gospel of Luke. The story centers on a young son who decides he wants to leave his family, takes his inheritance, and goes out into the world. He loses all that he has and returns home, hoping to be taken in as a servant. However, upon returning home, his father runs out to greet him and throws a celebratory party because the son that was lost has now been found.
"Wayward" focuses on the story of Tyler McMillan, played by Landon Henneman, who is the prodigal son of the film. McMillan is described as a "pampered rich kid" who already has everything, gets more, then loses it all. It's a story that all too many parents know but hope never to experience first-hand. more >>

The 76-year-old film maker has a whole slew of projects before him, which includes the Biblical epic "Exodus: Gods and Kings," which will be out on Boxing Day this year. He is also slated to direct the sci-fi film "The Martian," starring Matt Damon and the sequel to 'Blade Runner," which will star Harrison Ford.
Fans are wondering what will happen in the next installment of "Prometheus," with archeologist Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and damaged, but still functioning android David (Michael Fassbender) as they were last seen heading to the home world of humanity's architects turned future destroyers, the Engineers.
According to Moviepilot, one of the near-confirmed details of the movie will see Fassbender return and playing more than one "David 8" robot. There are also rumors that the movie will be a prequel to the first movie, making it a prequel to a prequel, because the events that took place in "Prometheus" gave way to what happened in the "Alien" movies. more >>
