The trailer for Darren Aronofsky's new film "Noah" has leaked online.
In the three minute preview, Noah (Russell Crowe) awakens from a dream and informs his wife (Jennifer Connelly) that God "is going to destroy the world."
A man (Anthony Hopkins) confirms this premonition and informs Noah that it fulfills a divine promise that "if man continued in his ways, the creator would annihilate this world." more >>
Hip hop artist and actor Ja Rule said in a recent interview with HuffPost Live that Hillsong Church NYC's "come as you are" atmosphere helped him welcome God into his life.
The rapper, whose real name is Jeffrey Atkins, spoke with Marc Lamont Hill about his experience touring churches to promote his new movie, "I'm In Love With A Church Girl." He was regularly asked during the tour if he was saved or if starring in the film impacted him spiritually, he shared, and he would respond by saying he loved God and believed in Him, but was taking his faith slowly.
"But what I was really saying is: 'I don't feel like I'm a part of this yet. I don't feel welcome,'" he said. more >>
"Paradise," a new film with an Oscar-winning cast, written and directed by Diablo Cody, who won an Oscar for writing the 2007 film "Juno," opened in a handful of theaters and doesn't even make the list on the box office reports. Christian reviewers explained why, and one listed the 10 malicious – and ridiculous – lies it tells about followers of Jesus.
"I think it ended up as a fairly unreleasable film," Craig Detweiler, an author, filmmaker, cultural commentator, and associate professor of Communication at Pepperdine University, told The Christian Post in an interview on Monday. "You can't attack the audience that you're potentially seeking and satirizing at the same time," Detweiler explained.
The film follows the story of Lamb, an ultra-conservative Christian girl from Montana whose fiancé dies in the plane wreck that nearly claims her own life. Seeking the fun time she was always denied as a Christian, she heads off to Las Vegas to experience the world. more >>
Last Saturday morning I woke up still shaken by the movie "12 Years a Slave" after watching it in the theater with my wife on Friday night.
On Sunday morning, I was still reeling.
I never thought Hollywood could deliver a dignified, honest sensitive portrayal of slavery and the pernicious effects of racism in America but it has in this film and I encourage everyone, if you can take it, to go and see it. more >>
