'Do You Believe?' Trailer with Alexa Vega and Sean Astin

23 December 2014 4:02 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 »

What's New on TV, Netflix Streaming, Digital, and DVD/Blu-ray This Week: December 15 - 21

15 December 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"The Skeleton Twins"

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.

"This Is Where I Leave You"

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, »

After ‘Dumb and Dumber To,’ Nine Other ’90s Comedies that Could Get a Sequel

19 November 2014 9:25 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

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.

As executives inevitably start to dig through the recycling bin of old titles that never got a second chapter, »

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.

Mira Sorvino on BBC Two's Intruders: "It's beautiful, but it is brutal"

24 October 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Hot off airing on BBC America - where it pulled in record-breaking ratings - Intruders is coming to the UK.

A co-production with BBC Two, the paranormal thriller stars John Simm as a former La cop drawn into danger when his wife Amy goes missing.

Oscar winner Mira Sorvino plays Amy Whelan - who may be much, much more than she seems - and spoke to Digital Spy about Intruders.

"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 »

Mira Sorvino on leaving dumb-blonde movie roles for The Intruders

20 October 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

"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. »

Supernatural, Revenge, Outlander: Tube Talk Q&A

16 October 2014 6:19 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Sure, you could leave the house - venturing out into the miserable weather, your umbrella meagre protection against the elements...

Or you can stay in, flip on the telly and catch up with your favourite shows - with the Tube Talk Q&A your faithful and knowledgeable companion.

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.

James Frain on Intruders, Conflicted Assassins, and Being Clueless About The X-Files

27 September 2014 6:48 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

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 »
