Nicolas Cage, who stars in the highly-anticipated remake of the rapture-inspired "Left Behind," revealed the reasons behind his involvement with the film this week.
The 50-year-old actor has starred in films ranging from romantic comedies and dramas to action and science fiction films, including "Ghost Rider" and "City of Angels." While Cage remains tight-lipped about his religious beliefs, the actor revealed that his career closely aligns with his faith.
"If you look at my filmography there's no secret to the fact I am drawn to movies that aren't afraid to take on spiritual themes," he told The Christian Post during a telephone conference. "Without going into my own personal spirituality, which is very sacred to me and not for public consumption or meant to be put in the media, I like to let my work speak for me. I like to find movies that allow me to explore these inner or outer worlds through the work without me having to really talk too much about it." more >>
Pastor Kyle Idleman is urging moviegoers to see "The Song," claiming the new film will strengthen marriages and help to build families.
Based on the Song of Solomon as well as Ecclesiastes, "The Song" follows Jed King, a musician whose career leads to a world of temptation and darkness that threatens his marriage. Idleman, who is a pastor at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky, served as a producer of the film. While speaking to The Christian Post this week, Idleman pointed out the powerful message offered in "The Song."
"The film celebrates love and romance and is honest about challenges and struggles of marriage," Idleman said. "It calls to a commitment that stands the test of time." more >>
"The Conjuring 2" is an upcoming supernatural horror film which is a direct sequel to the first film "The Conjuring" released in 2013. The sequel was first reported to be in development in June of 2013 and is scheduled for an Oct. 23, 2015 premiere date. Both Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson will be reprising their roles as Lorraine Warren and Ed Warren respectively in the sequel.
While iMDb lists the film's plot as undisclosed, details of the story have already been circulating as early as last year. Current and holding rumors is that the sequel will be sending Warrens to England. A subtitle for the sequel is also said to be "The Enfield Poltergeist."
The subtitle is a reference to the 1977 case of a single mother in suburban London whose children were reportedly haunted. Seeing as how Warren is being sent to London, the plot could revolve around this case. more >>
"Fast and Furious 7" is an upcoming action film by Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures. It is the seventh main title in the "Fast and Furious" franchise and will premiere on Apr. 3, 2015.

Walker died of an unfortunate car crash at the age of 40 in the middle of filming "Fast and Furious 7."

Warner Bros.' upcoming film, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," is scheduled for a Mar. 25, 2016 release in 3D in the U.S. The film is based on the DC Comics characters Batman, Superman, Lex Luthor, and the formation of the Justice League -- DC's equivalent of Marvel's Avengers.

While there are new faces in the film, old cast members will also be making their return. Henry Cavill will be returning as Superman/Clark Kent, and Amy Adams will return as Lois Lane. Batman won't be portrayed by Christian Bale as everyone expected but instead will be cast by Ben Affleck. more >>
"Believe Me," a new movie created by the same Christian filmmakers behind documentaries such as "Beware of Christians" and "One Nation Under God," challenges the norm in the Christian film market.
The film tells the story of a college student named Sam who cannot afford his tuition. In order to raise money to stay in school, he, and three of his friends, pose as the touring Christian ministry The God Squad, and con people into giving them money to provide clean water for people in Africa. But, instead, they intend to keep the donated money for themselves.
In order to portray the characters (who are atheist or agnostic) authentically, the creators had to take some risks by including elements not normally found in Christian films, such as drinking, tobacco use and graphic language. more >>
