"Rayna continues to pull out all stops in self-promotion, this time by agreeing to do a televised Christmas special from her home, for charity, with Luke and the children. When Rayna invites Deacon to join the filming, things get awkward fast - her magazine cover story has reverberations for her personal life." more >>
There are only two months until the third season of the hit historical drama TV series "Vikings" will return on the History Channel. A new promo video released by the network. Here's what we learned so far.
The footage was largely narrated by the blind old Seer (John Cavanagh). He mentioned about "stones and bones," and seeing "life, splitting, joining, and struggling." At the end he warned: "And for this you must be patient." Could it be Ragnar (Travis Fimmel), who is now the King of Denmark (by the end of Season 2) that he's been talking to?
Also implied in the short teaser a "brotherly bonding" between his former detractor and brother Rollo (Clive Standen). Rollo was found, in the later part of the season, striking the vow of loyal servitude to his brother. Will it change when Season 3 arrives? more >>

After exceeding their $2.1 million crowdfunding goal earlier this year to make a crime drama about Kermit Gosnell and his West Philadelphia "house of horrors," late-term abortion clinic, starting Wednesday, Indiegogo is allowing the Gosnell movie producers to reopen their campaign indefinitely as part of its "forever funding" program.
By reopening the crowdfunding campaign, producers Ann McElhinney, Phelim McAleer and Magdalena Segieda will continue to offer "thank you" gifts to donors and have set new goals for the crime drama, which includes raising an additional $500,000 to extend filming to four weeks, and securing the best actors they can find for the film. The producers also hope to increase the number of backers from the 26,574 who donated over $2.2 million to over 100,000 backers to show potential distributors that a large number of Americans support the project.
"It's a huge boost to the movie — more donations, means more shooting days, better actors, higher production values, it'll mean a better movie. It will also mean we'll be able to get Gosnell's story out to a wider audience," McElhinney said in a statement shared with The Christian Post on Wednesday. more >>
