WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels will star in the upcoming Christian comedy, "The Resurrection of Gavin Stone."
WWE studios and BH TILT in association with Walden Media, Vertical Church Films, and Power in Faith Productions presents, "The Resurrection of Gavin Stone," coming to theaters nationwide on Jan. 20, 2017.
According to the film's synopsis the inspiring comedy is about Gavin Stone, a washed-up former child star who is forced to do community service at a local megachurch and who pretends to be Christian so he can land the part of Jesus in their annual Passion play, only to discover that the most important role of his life is far from Hollywood. more >>
Huffington Post blogger Larua Goldman has criticized the recently released film "Bridget Jones's Diary" simply because abortion and birth control were not discussed as options in the movie.
In "Bridget Jones's Baby," the third movie of the "Bridget Jones" trilogy, the over 40 Bridget Jones (played by Renée Zellweger) breaks up with her boyfriend and then shortly after develops a new love interest. When she ends up getting pregnant, Jones is unsure of who the father is.
Although some women in that situation might consider getting an abortion, Jones decides to carry the child to term. more >>
World-renowned ministry Hillsong released their highly anticipated feature film "Let Hope Rise" this weekend, and Hillsong UNITED member Jad Gillies says the Pure Flix film will highlight how a mighty God used a group of ordinary devoted people to impact the world for Him.
In the film, Senior Pastor Brian Houston explains that the success of Hillsong is not about themselves but instead it's all about God. "Let Hope Rise" features various clips of the band in their highest and lowest points – praying, touring, with their family, writing songs and more.
Hillsong has grown from a single church in suburban Sydney Australia to an international ministry that now extends to cities on five continents, including London, Paris, Sao Paulo, Cape Town, Rio de Janeiro, and Phoenix. In America, Hillsong is recognized for their thriving congregations in New York and Los Angeles. Combined, the ministry reaches over 100,000 people weekly. more >>
You'll see a lot of footage of us from Hillsong UNITED on stage, and in the studio, in the new movie "Hillsong: Let Hope Rise." We are, after all, worship leaders, and the movie is what some are calling Hollywood's first-ever theatrical worship experience.
But for me, and I think I can speak for the rest of the United crew, too, nothing you'll see in cinemas captures the heart of Hillsong's mission more than the scene in which we visit an impoverished slum in the Philippines as part of the ministry work our church does with Compassion International.
Don't get me wrong: It is an honor and privilege to lead others into the presence of God through the incredible gift of music. I pinch myself that I get to be a part of UNITED; serving God and building His church is a dream that has been in my heart from a really young age. It's beyond humbling to see the reaction of the crowds we get to play for, no matter where in the world we are playing. God has given us a pretty big platform through our songs — and we do not take it for granted and pray we never will! more >>
CHICAGO – If a tidal wave hit a small coastal town and swept away the school building — killing all the children inside — how would it impact your view of life and of, well, God?
Starring Martin Sheen as the town's Catholic priest, the film tackles tragedy and grief head-on by examining them through the prism of one of the most heartbreaking thoughts we can imagine: the widespread death of innocent kids. For much of the film, the story has the feel of a modern-day parable. more >>
WASHINGTON — Disney's upcoming film "Queen of Katwe" tells the true-story of Phiona Mutesi (Madina Nalwanga), a courageous girl who sells maize (corn) in the dusty streets of Kampala, Uganda, and ultimately uses her mastery of the game of chess to become a champion in the game of life.
Upon reading a script for the film, Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o, who portrays Phiona's mother, Nakku Harriet, told The Christian Post on Wednesday, "I just sobbed."
After the first 10 pages Nyong'o knew she wanted to be a part of the film, saying she hadn't ever seen anything quite like the story. An added plus was that Director Mira Nair, with whom she had worked with before, was attached. more >>
