A 17-second trailer for Darren Aronofsky's upcoming film "Noah" was released today. The clips briefly show Noah underwater and of him beginning to construct the ark.
The release of the teaser comes after a three minute preview of the film leaked online last month. In it, Noah (Russell Crowe) informs his wife (Jennifer Connelly) that God "is going to destroy the world."
A man (Anthony Hopkins) confirms Noah's premonition and informs Noah that the flood is God's way of fulfilling his promise that "if man continued in his ways, the creator would annihilate this world." more >>
In a move that might defy certain stereotypes, Christian reviewers argue that the main female characters in the recent high-performing box-office film "Thor: The Dark World" present good, active female role models, in contrast to the mere "damsel in distress" common to many Disney films.
"Jane Foster was a nurse with a soap opera function as a female longing for Thor's alter ego, Dr. Don Blake, in the original comic, so making her an astrophysicist is a big move," Alex Wainer, associate professor of Communication and Media Studies at Palm Beach Atlantic University in South Florida, told The Christian Post on Tuesday.
This change from the comics to the film, Wainer argued, "allows her to have more agency in the plot as well as to be rescued by the hunky Thor." He also pointed to the warrior Lady Sif and Thor's queenly mother Frigga as strong female characters in the film. more >>
"Thor: The Dark World" soared at the box office to become Disney's biggest November opening ever, topping 2004's "The Incredibles," and reaching number nine for all films to come out this month. Christian reviewers explained its success as a function of truly compelling characters, who are lifelike and reflect biblical themes.
"The fascinating thing is these characters have been around for nearly fifty years, but they resonate with a modern day audience – the box office numbers were huge," Thomas Parham, co-chair and professor of Theater, Film, and Television at Azusa Pacific University, told The Christian Post in an interview on Tuesday. Parham said the film's story reflects the biblical tales of Jacob and Esau, Solomon, and creation. more >>
A time-lapse video of a homeless veteran's transformation into a suave professional has gone viral, bringing attention to the Christian ministry behind it.
Jim Wolf, a United States Army veteran who, according to the video, has struggled with poverty, homelessness and alcoholism for decades, sits through a physical transformation. A female makeover specialist, volunteering with Michigan-based Christian Degage Ministries, alters every detail of the gritty, aging, long-haired man.
The makeover woman cuts Wolf's hair, trims his beard, applies makeup to remove age lines, and deeply cleans his scalp. Then a man dresses the veteran in a suit, and he leaves looking like the CEO of a major company. more >>
