It has been 13 long years since comedienne and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres first lent her voice to Dory, the blue tang with short-term memory loss, in Pixar's critically acclaimed "Finding Nemo" (2003).
This year, DeGeneres returns to the undersea world of Dory, Nemo (originally voiced by Alexander Gould), and Marlin (Albert Brooks), but, this time, she plays the lead in "Finding Dory," the long-awaited sequel to "Finding Nemo."
In "Finding Dory," viewers will find the forgetful but perennially optimistic blue tang taking on a more emotional story arc. In the sequel, Dory embarks on a quest across the Pacific to find her long-lost parents after her deeply-rooted childhood memories are suddenly sparked by a mention of the word "home." more >>
It's unimaginable to think that there will be no "Boruto: Naruto the Movie 2," especially if one looks at the kind of reception the first movie got. It's legions of fans are desperate of a new flick. But while everything seems to be pointing to another full-feature anime film, it looks like fans are going to see their worst nightmare. According to several sources, the next film in line has been cancelled in order to make room for a new series called "True Legend of Itachi."
Per iDigital Times report, any hope of a second Boruto movie is pushed aside, at least for this year due to the fact that the Naruto franchise has been quite busy with other projects, including the "Boruto Manga" and that of Itachi. Also called "Naruto Shippuden: Itachi Shinden," the story of Itachi is expected to be released by May. The flick is actually a big screen adaptation of Takashi Yano's novel.
In the equally anticipated series, there are reportedly two parts, the first one of which is called "Glory," which focuses on Itachi's childhood and his subsequent entry to the Ninja Academy. This part showcases Itachi's dream of becoming the very first Hokage Uchiha. The second part on the other hand, titled "Dark Knight," is an account of the events that prompted Itachi to eradicate the entire Uchiha Clan. It also will show the reason why he decided to spare Sasuke in the process. more >>
Veteran singer and actor Pat Boone has denounced a skit performed on "Saturday Night Live" that poked fun at the film "God's Not Dead 2," calling the sketch "sacrilege."
Last Saturday, "SNL" ran a mock movie trailer for a film titled "God is a Boob Man," that made fun of the real life evangelical film and its ideological underpinnings.
Disney's remake of the 1977 live-action and cartoon feature film "Pete's Dragon" is bowing in theaters this coming August, but since the studio announced that it was working on the project, not much is known about the film until now. Entertainment Weekly featured an exclusive first look at the film's main character, Elliott, who is otherwise known as Pete's Dragon. Elliott the Dragon in the film looked different from the one in the original film: this one is furry and has lost the signature pink spikes and wild neon haircut.
According to the Entertainment Weekly report, film director David Lowery explained that they only let go of the pink spikes and wild neon haircut because it did not fit in the "photo-real terrain" that the creature lived in which is the forest. Since Elliott needed to blend well with his habitat, especially since he did not want others to see him, pink and neon had to go. Lowery however assured fans that much of the original character of Elliott remained: he still had a big jaw, a big snout and the same clumsy quality.
In another report in Tech Times, his new look was also in consideration of the fact that instead of having the power of invisibility, he is simply good at hiding or camouflaging himself, which one cannot do successfully with pink spikes. more >>
Popular Christian filmmakers Alex and Stephen Kendrick, "the Kendrick brothers" are calling on pastors across the country to lead their congregations in praying more fervently to bring about a revival and a great awakening in America.
"If you look at the history of the Church, the history of revival and the great awakenings, it always was connected to people unifying and praying for the Lord to work in that situation and that's what we want to happen in our generation," Stephen Kendrick says in "A Passion for Parayer" video posted to Fcebook last week. "We cannot walk in the fullness of the Holy Spirit, we cannot evangelize, we cannot walk in unity in the Body of Christ if we're not praying on a consistent basis."
Joining the Kendrick brothers in the plea for a greater emphasis on prayer in the Christian community is Pastor Tony Evans, head of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas, Texas. Evans' daughter, Priscilla, played a leading role in last year's blockuster hit "War Room," which is all about the power of prayer. more >>
It looks like fans of the hit anime series "Tokyo Ghoul" will once again have to be a little more patient while waiting for Season 3 as rumors have it that the premier date has been pushed back, the reason of which is due to insufficient source material to come up with a good storyline.
And because it's almost halfway through 2016, there no longer is a chance for the new season to air this year. Therefore, it likely will air in early 2017, provided the writers and creators of the series will be able to gather sufficient manga materials to make up one season.
Well, one reason why there's been a lot of delay for season 3 is that there was some criticism in Season 2 after some episodes clearly had redundant scenes, a sign that the storytellers may have ran out of ideas. more >>
