Theresa May is set to become the second female prime minister of Great Britain - following in the footsteps of "Iron Lady" Margaret Thatcher a quarter of a century ago. May, 59, is certain to inherit the UK's top job following the surprise decision of leadership rival Andrea Leadsom to pull out of the two-way contest to become the Conservative Party chief on Monday. Leadsom's decision leaves May as the only candidate left standing to succeed David Cameron as British prime minister - arguably the most unwanted political office in the world right now.

Miracles From Heaven – The Review

15 March 2016 5:36 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

 

Miracles From Heaven explores issues of family and faith while telling the true tale of Texan Christy Beam (played by Jennifer Garner) that begins when her 10-year old daughter Anna (Kylie Rogers) develops horrible stomach pain. The child is initially misdiagnosed, and when her disorder is discovered to be an incurable, and ultimately fatal, digestive disease, Christy finds herself a fierce advocate for Anna’s health. She travels to Boston frequently to work with Dr. Nirko (Eugenio Derbez), apparently the only specialist in the country who can help. Back home, Christy’s husband Kevin (Martin Henderson) does his best to hold down the fort with their other two daughters while dealing with impending financial stress. After a freak accident involving a hollow tree and a glimpse of God and Heaven, a miracle unfolds that leaves doctors confounded and the Beam’s small-town community inspired.

Miracles From Heaven is as decent and square as it sounds. »

Why Sacha Baron Cohen Left the 'Queen' Freddie Mercury Biopic

9 March 2016 11:48 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The always-controversial Sacha Baron Cohen made headlines last month after he surprised everyone at the Oscars by presenting as his iconic character Ali G. Now the actor is hitting the promotional trail in support of his new comedy The Brothers Grimsby, which hits theaters this weekend, and the actor also shed some light on why he left the Untitled Freddie Mercury Biopic. During an interview with the Howard Stern Show, the actor revealed that he left the project because he didn't see eye to eye about the direction of the story with the surviving members of Queen. Here's what he had to say about how an unnamed member of the band described how they wanted the story to unfold.

"He goes it's such a great movie, because such an amazing thing happens in the middle of the movie. I said, 'What happens in the middle of the movie?' He goes, »

Cohen Talks Exiting The Queen Biopic

8 March 2016 6:28 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Several years ago came news that "Borat" and "Bruno" star Sacha Baron Cohen was linked to a biopic based on the life of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. The film, which was being produced by remaining band members Brian May and Roger Taylor, was also courting helmers like Stephen Frears and Tom Hooper to direct.

However it never seemed to make much progress, mostly because there were large creative differences over the portrayal of Mercury - May and Taylor said to be very protective of their former frontman. Cohen, out doing "The Brothers Grimsby" promotion, went on the Howard Stern Show (via The Playlist) recently and explained why he opted out of the project:

"[After] my first meeting, I should never have carried on because a member of the band - I won't say who - said, 'This is such a great movie, because such an amazing thing happens in the middle of the movie. »

The Year of Garth Ennis, Aftershock, and More of the Same

14 January 2016 9:45 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

2015 was an impressive year for comics. Image continued to rise as the champion of indie titles, with its ever-expanding library of books by successful veterans and newcomers. Vertigo returned with a new line of comics containing dark, complex, character-driven genre stories that made them the most interesting American publisher back in the day. After years of being stuck making grim-dark, generic comics, DC decided to launch its #DCYou comics to breathe new life into its slowly decaying world: these were comics with characters/creators that were women, Lgbt, and Poc. Not only that, but they managed to come out with some of their best work in years like Batgirl, Midnighter, and Black Canary. As far as I’m concerned, Marvel doesn’t know what they’re doing, and I’m only reading Ms. Marvel right now as everything else is either too expensive or generic looking. Oh, well. At least Ant-Man was a good movie. »
