14 December 2016 12:58 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Sean Hannity Teams With Kevin Sorbo For Faith-Friendly Movie

14 December 2016 8:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Fox News' Sean Hannity has delved into filmmaking by partnering with Kevin Sorbo on a movie in which the former star of TV's Hercules: The Legendary Journeys will play a world-renowned atheist whose beliefs are dramatically challenged.

For Sorbo, this is the second time he is playing a character in a story with atheism as the central plot point, after having starred in God's Not Dead, the surprise hit that made $61 million domestically on a $2 million production budget and spurred a sequel, God's Not Dead 2, which made $21 million.

As for Hannity, he is making his first foray »

5 Actors You Didn't Know Made Las Vegas Home

6 December 2016 9:08 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Because Las Vegas is one of America's entertainment capitals, over the decades the city has seen some of the biggest names in music and magic become permanent residents. A handful of born-and-bred Nevadans have headed in the opposite direction, too: Starting out in Vegas, and then making their mark in Hollywood. Some of the most beloved entertainers who either began in Sin City for settled there later in life include the five below.

Review: Wizard-World Comic-Con 2016

11 September 2016 7:16 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

This past weekend, Mike and I had the opportunity to attend the Wizard-World Comic-Con in Richmond Virginia.  The event was held in The Greater Richmond Convention Center from Friday, September 9th-Sunday, September 11th.  Below you can read all the great takeaways from the event.

Atmosphere:

Wizard-World had a family-friendly feel to it.  Not that other Cons do not cater to families, but the layout of the booths, activities, and Cosplayers all seemed to reflect that feel.  There were a good number of families there, many who came in Cosplay together, which was awesome to see the love of the genre passed down from generation to generation.  

Continuing with the family-friendly tone, everything associated with the convention was on one floor, much like Hero's-Con, but in a smaller area.  The set-up of the booths were sectioned into categories for the most part (comics, merchandise, clothing, gaming, celebrities, etc.), which were easy to navigate. »

[[tmz:video id="0_jw73ymbo"]] Kevin Sorbo is not a big fan of either presidential candidate, but between Hillary and Trump, he says ... "I'm with him."  Kevin was at Lax when he got into a contentious conversation with our photog, who suggested the reputed Middle Eastern son of God could not gain entry into the U.S. if Trump gets elected. The 'Hercules' star doubled down, saying there's a reason to be especially concerned about Muslims. Check out the video ... super interesting. »

Samuel Goldwyn Films takes 'Spirit Of The Game'

5 May 2016 5:22 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The distributor has taken the unusual step of acquiring worldwide rights to J.D. Scott’s sports drama.

Samuel Goldwyn Films will release Spirit Of The Game theatrically in partnership with Purdie Distribution on October 7.

The 1950s-set tale tells the true story of a group of young missionaries who travel to Australia to spread the gospel and wind up helping the fledgling national basketball team as it prepares for the 1956 Olympic Games. Kevin Sorbo stars.

“We could not be more excited about releasing Spirit Of The Game with Purdie Distribution,” said Peter Goldwyn, president of Samuel Goldwyn Films. “This is an inspiring sports drama which showcases the compatibility of faith and competition.”

Film Review: ‘God’s Not Dead 2’

1 April 2016 12:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Almighty is still alive, albeit also under continuing attack, in “God’s Not Dead 2,” a sequel in which the issue of religion in schools leads to a courtroom showdown over God’s rightful place in society. Boasting a superficially new plot but preaching the exact same sermon – in the identical leaden, graceless manner – as its predecessor, Harold Cronk’s follow-up concocts a laughable crisis of faith whose resolution is a fait accompli, turning the endeavor into a torturous exercise in one-note proselytizing. The franchise’s disciples will surely fill its collection plate as full as 2014’s $60-million-grossing original, but this paranoid persecution-complex fantasy is unlikely to win many converts.

Cronk’s original installment presented Kevin Sorbo’s atheistic liberal-arts professor as the embodiment of satanic evil. Since he literally died for his sins at the end of that story – only after making a deathbed conversion to Christ, however! – the »

God's Not Dead 2 review – only brief instances of transcendent badness

1 April 2016 5:27 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The latest from evangelical production company Pure Flix is a dull courtroom drama, but unlike the previous film, it isn’t quite silly enough to be entertaining

When conversation turns to the entertainment value of the recent “faith-based” films aimed at the Us evangelical market, inevitably someone will say: “Nothing tops that Kevin Sorbo one.” The picture in question is God’s Not Dead, an outrageously slapdash, inarticulate movie filled with ludicrous plotting, inelegant staging and one of cinema’s most absurd endings. (The big bad atheist gets hit by a car, just as the Christian rock band Newsboys tells everyone in the audience to text their friends that God isn’t dead.) Shot for only $2m, it grossed more than $60m, enabling its production company, Pure Flix, to release follow-ups such as Do You Believe? and Faith of Our Fathers. But franchises are the thing right now, so it »

‘Miracles From Heaven’ and the Changing Face of Religious Films

17 March 2016 11:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Passion of the Christ” became a box office phenomenon in 2004, earning $370.8 million domestically by pitching its account of the crucifixion directly to churches and ministries.

Though no religious-themed film has come close to matching its success, Hollywood’s fixation on faith-based films has only intensified in the ensuing decade, with mixed results. For every low-budget breakout such as “War Room,” there’s a costly flop along the lines of “Exodus: Gods and Kings.” Having the elements align can sometimes require something just short of a miracle.

“People underestimate not just about how much the core faith-based community, but also the public at large, wants movies that can inspire and uplift them,” said Devon Frankin, a producer on “Miracles from Heaven” and an ordained minister.

Despite the challenges, studios show no sign of abandoning their quest for religious-themed hits. This year has already brought about “Risen,” a detective story about the »

10 Movies From 2016 That Could Score 0% On Rotten Tomatoes

3 March 2016 12:35 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Saban Films

It takes a really, really terrible movie to wind up with a score of 0% on Rotten Tomatoes – even Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 has 5%. And yet, it does happen…

Last year, Adam Sandler’s “comedy” western, The Ridiculous Six, managed the incredible feat: it’s currently sitting pretty on Rotten Tomatoes with an embarrassing score of 0%, based on 30 reviews.

The smart money is on the following films joining that incredible level of failure on every level…

 

10. God’s Not Dead 2 Pure Flix Entertainment

Release Date: April 1, 2016

As a cinematic genre, “Christian dramas” rarely fare well on the critical review side of things. God’s Not Dead, one such film from 2014, managed a mere 15% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The plot concerned a student, played by Kevin Sorbo, who goes up against an atheist teacher who demands that his students sign a declaration that “God is dead” in order to pass his philosophy class. »

For the past few years, Arnold Schwarzenegger has been talking about a potential return as Conan the Barbarian for a follow-up to his breakthrough role with The Legend of Conan.

Well, now that the Terminator franchise is dead and buried for the foreseeable future, it looks like Arnie is finally gearing up for a return to the Hyborian Age, with the action icon revealing a few details to The Arnold Fans, including a new title.

“Conan the Conqueror, where I’m sitting on the throne for years and years – decades, and then all of the sudden, the time comes when they want to overthrow me. So that story Will be told and that movie Will be done. As a matter of fact, it has been written and we are now looking for directors so this is a serious drive.
