Walden Family Theater returns tonight with the premiere of the family film "Pete's Christmas." Most adults will recognize the concept of the film, and children will be delighted by the idea of reliving Christmas over and over again and seeing familiar faces.
Zachary Gordon, star of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid," is an overlooked young man who feels neglected. He's tired of being the middle child and things only get worse when his grandfather unexpectedly shows up for the holiday. Gordon tries to make the best of things but nothing turns out the way he wants; as a result, Gordon is given the chance to make things right and relives Christmas Day over and over again.
If the concept sounds familiar, adults may remember the film "Groundhog Day" starring Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell. "Groundhog Day" allows Murray's character to relive the same day and evaluate his life and goals. However, it's not a family-friendly movie, even though it promotes a good message about the quality of life. more >>

The songs reflect the movie's themes of love, redemption, surrender and salvation as a variety of genre's show up including: contemporary R&B, Latin rap, Dance and Pop, classic worship and gospel.
The film's music stars also perform. Ja Rule raps on "Pray For The Day," featuring Rule's signature sing-rap cadence he is well known for. T-Bone's "Possess My Body," is a duet with Beckah Shae that is easily a Latin party song reminiscent to Pitbull. more >>

The new film "Ender's Game," based off the book by Mormon writer Orson Scott Card, may carry some Christian themes, and one reviewer claims it mimics the biblical story of Joseph.
The film "parallels directly Joseph's dealing with this brothers," Robert Hamel, assistant professor of Theatre Arts at Westmont College and a Lutheran pastor for 29 years, told The Christian Post in an interview on Thursday. Hamel compared the character Ender's crisis of conscience to Joseph's decision to feed the very same brothers who once sold him into slavery. more >>
Hugh Jackman is set to star as Wolverine once more - a part he seems to count as one of the favorite in his career.
"He's like a best friend, Wolverine. He's the beginning of my career here in America and he's still there," Jackman told E! News last week. "It's been 14 years and I can't believe it. I love the character. I love playing him and I'm probably loving him more than ever."
YouTube sensation Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, best known for prank and comedy videos on the Internet, turned around the life of a homeless man who tells viewers to "keep Jesus in your heart," after he receives help from the artist, along with a new set of teeth.
Zdorovetskiy first met Martin in July when he decided he wanted to "make a homeless man's day."
According to a video uploaded on July 29, Zdorovetskiy gave Martin a shower and a haircut, bought him new clothes, a steak dinner and two nights in a hotel. During that first encounter, however, Martin expressed his deepest desire to fix his teeth. more >>
Orson Scott Card, the author of the well-known science fiction classic Ender's Game that is soon to be released as a Hollywood movie, said in a recent interview that the backlash he has received from those who describe him as "homophobic" is a "savage, lying, deceptive personal" attack on him.
Card's classic science fiction novel, which describes the plight of a futuristic boy hired to kill an alien species, will be debuted as a film starring big names such as Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley in early November. Some groups have vowed to boycott the film due to Card's stance supporting traditional marriage; the 62-year-old author is a board member of the National Organization for Marriage and has previously said the legalization of gay marriage in California against voter wishes had marked "the end of democracy in America."
Card said in a recent interview with Deseret News that he believes the recent attacks on the upcoming film "Ender's Game" are really not directed at his work but rather are personal attacks on his character, and he believes that he cannot debate with critics who choose to assassinate his character rather than exchange intelligent ideas on the topic of marriage. more >>
