The filmmakers behind the hit movie God's Not Dead return next year with another faith-based drama in the first trailer for Do You Believe?, arriving in theaters March 20, 2015. Mira Sorvino, Sean Astin, Alexa Vega, Lee Majors and Cybill Shepherd lead an all-star ensemble in this drama from director Jonathan M. Gunn. The story centers on a dozen different souls-all moving in different directions, all longing for something more.
As their lives unexpectedly intersect, they each are about to discover there is power in the Cross of Christ... even if they don't believe it. Yet. When a local pastor is shaken to the core by the visible faith of an old street-corner preacher, he is reminded that true belief always requires action. His response ignites a faith-fueled journey that powerfully impacts everyone it touches in ways that only God could orchestrate. This stirring new film from the creators of God's Not Dead »

Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig are fantastic as estranged twins with a family history of depression. After a failed suicide attempt, Milo (Hader) goes to live with Maggie (Wiig) and her Golden Retriever-like husband, Lance (Luke Wilson). Although Maggie's life looks perfect from the outside, she's got just as many self-destructive secrets at Milo. Sweet and sad, this is definitely Wiig's best dramatic role to date.
Tina Fey and Jason Bateman lead an impressive ensemble cast in this dramedy about a family forced together for their father's funeral, and the seven days of mourning customary known as sitting shiva in the Jewish tradition. Jane Fonda, Adam Driver, Rose Byrne, Kathryn Hahn, Ben Schwartz, »

Principal photography has commenced in New Orleans on Indiscretion.
John Stewart Muller’s thriller stars Mira Sorvino as Veronica, a psychiatrist who has an affair with Victor, a young sculptor who, when she calls off the affair, refuses to let go. The film also stars Cary Elwes, Christopher Backus and Katherine McNamara.
Epic Pictures handle international sales.
Boersma commented: “We’re asking questions about human nature and exploring how both men and women can be equally destructive. The combination of a compelling, suspenseful story with John’s strong directorial vision should create a sexy, smart, and timeless thriller that rises above the genre.”
“I’m thrilled to be a part of the producing team behind this exceptional script. Laura and John »

The remaining six couples take to the dance-floor again tonight, hoping to impress the judges with their polished moves.
The X Factor: ITV, 8pm
Each will perform two tracks in a bid for survival, but who will reach the grand final and who will get the boot tomorrow night?
Ariadne (Aiysha Hart) embarks on a journey to the homeland of her new fiancé Telemon, but her quest proves perilous as she encounters enemies on every side.
Despite the lottery-esque sounding odds, the U.S Dramatic Competition section which produces the finest American indie specimens such as Frozen River, Winter’s Bone, Blue Valentine, Martha Marcy May Marlene, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Fruitvale Station and Whiplash is fairly consistent in terms of quality. Last year’s crop of sixteen have almost all had their theatrical releases with Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter being the last one out of the gates (pegged with an early 2015 release). Last week we individually looked at our top 80 Sundance Film Fest Predictions (you’ll find 30 other titles worth considering in our intro) and below, we’ve split the list into narrative and non-fiction film items and have both identified and color-coded our picks in an AtoZ cheat sheet.

With audiences growing tired of “Spider-Man” or “Transformers” sequels, Hollywood now has a solution — go back to the ’90s.
“Dumb and Dumber To,” which opened to atrocious reviews 20 years after the original, still scored an impressive $36 million at the box office last weekend. (Read all the reasons why it worked from my colleague Brent Lang.) It shouldn’t have come as a surprise: the ’90s are hot again. This week, Twitter went nuts over a “Dawson’s Creek” reunion photo of James Van Der Beek and Joshua Jackson, while Focus Features announced “Can’t Touch This” (borrowing from the Mc Hammer song), a ’90s-set high school dance-a-thon directed by Jon M. Chu. If Robin Williams had lived to star in “Mrs. Doubtfire 2,” it would no doubt have been a hit too.

Noah Pritzker first surfaced with his short Little Dad (SXSW ’12), and in the summer of 2013 (see set pic), plugged away in the fog with his directorial debut. The San Fran resident shot in his own backyard with a cinematographer worth noting in Jakob Ihre (Oslo, 31. august). Backed by a strong indie duo producing team, Pritzker had Moonrise Kingdom‘s Kara Hayward, Saffron Burrows, Mira Sorvino and Kieran Culkin as his set of players.
Gist: Co-written by Pritzker and Ben Tarnoff, this explores the upper class San Franciscan society and centers on Clark (Ben Konigsberg), a high school student, struggling to come to terms with the demands of his family, society, love. Kara Hayward plays Etta, a high school freshman dealing with her parents divorce.
Prediction: Park City at Midnight is a possibility, and SXSW will certainly we circling this as well. »

Shes won an Oscar, made a cult comedy, had four kids and become a Un ambassador. Now Mira Sorvino is ready to ride the new wave of TV drama
Im lying on the floor, crying in a pool of blood. Finally, I just said, Please, let this be the last take, I cant do this any longer. Afterwards, I just rocked on the floor for five minutes, I was so upset by it.
Mira Sorvino is recalling shooting Intruders, the supremely creepy new Us thriller from the BBC about a secret society who gain immortality by taking over the bodies of others. Its been one of the greatest acting challenges of my life, she says of her role as Amy, a lawyer and wife of a retired police officer who goes missing after being possessed.

Pure Flix, the production company behind faith-based hit “God’s Not Dead,” is bringing “Do You Believe?” to the American Film Market next week.

“’God’s Not Dead’ resonated with audiences because it explored and validated the existence of God,” “Do You Believe?” producer David A.R. White said. “‘Do You Believe?’ takes Christianity to another level…the Cross.”

"I have these very two distinct sides to play..."
On the surface, a happily-married lawyer at a Seattle law firm, there's much more to Amy Whelan than meets the eye, as Sorvino explains...
"It's really phenomenal. I get to play two different personalities at the same time - sometimes concurrent in a scene - and the latter of the personalities is completely different from anything I've ever played. She's a femme fatale, very Machiavellian, very strong, a little bit amoral »
"I could talk about this for days," says Mira Sorvino, and I believe her. Unfortunately, we don't have days, and after the 47-year-old actress tells me about her work as a Un Goodwill Ambassador to Combat Human Trafficking – of meeting police and lawyers in Mexico, interviewing trafficked child virgins in Cambodia and lobbying Congress to abolish slavery in Darfur – I'm hoping I don't sound too frivolous when I steer the subject towards Woody Allen. »

This week, we've got the latest on Revenge, Supernatural and more...
Is there any news about Supernatural? I'm now hearing rumours that season 9 might not even have a DVD release...
Yeah, it's looking pretty bleak on the Supernatural front - UK fans have been denied the Winchesters' latest exploits ever since Sky Living opted to drop the series earlier this year.
No new broadcaster has stepped into the breach either - and while some outlets still have a season 9 DVD release listed for October 20, it's our understanding that those listings are erroneous.

The interesting thing, so far, about Intruders — the BBC America drama about body-hopping immortals and the people caught in their path airs its sixth episode tonight at 10 p.m. — is that it invites more questions than it answers. James Frain, the actor who plays the mysterious enforcer Shepherd, knows that the tantalizing plotlines are unfurling slowly, but that doesn’t mean he was up for revealing anything to Vulture in a recent interview. (He did, however, invite us to come up with our own answers and make it seem as if he’d said them himself. “Just give me a couple of your juiciest quotes,” he joked.) The True Blood alum chatted with us about his character’s crisis of conscience, not understanding the show’s The X-Files references, and how he knew his co-star Mira Sorvino in a past life. Do you think there’s any connection between Franklin »
