The Definitive Religious Movies: 20-11

13 April 2014 9:41 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We move into the top 20 now, where the films become incredibly spiritual. One major component seen in many of these religious films: the overtones meant to instill a sense of mystery and wonder. You see it in films set in both sweeping landscapes and intimate settings. Whether or not any of the films on this list are condoning the acceptance or rejection of faith and religion is almost beside the point. The real point is that it is so influential on our culture that movies will always be made about it.

See Charlton Heston's damn dirty postage stamp

11 April 2014 11:48 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Planet of the Apes, The Ten Commandments, and Ben-Hur – all places we can see the late actor Charlton Heston’s face. Now we can add U.S. Postal Service stamps to the list.

Heston’s the most recent star to be honored in the Postal Service’s Legends of Hollywood stamp series, which also includes stamps bearing the images of fellow greats like Audrey Hepburn and James Dean.

“In many ways, a nation’s stamps are a cross-section of a culture, its ideals and icons, in microcosm,” Heston’s son, Fraser C. Heston, said in a statement. “As a fervently patriotic American, »

DVD Release: Arthur Hailey’s The Moneychangers

10 April 2014 10:22 AM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

DVD Release Date: May 20, 2014

Price: DVD $19.99

Studio: CBS/Paramount

Money is power in the 1976 television mini-series Arthur Hailey’s The Moneychangers, an adaptation of Hailey’s 1975 bestselling novel.

The tale of corruption and greed in the banking business stars Christopher Plummer (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) in his Emmy-winning role as the suave, hypocritical and skilled Roscoe Heyward and Kirk Douglas (Paths of Glory) as the honest, hard-charging and focused Alex Vandervoort, both of whom are vying for the top position in one of the nation’s largest banks. Along they way, they have run-ins with such supporting cast members as Anne Baxter (The Ten Commandments), Robert Loggia (Scarface), Lorne Greene (Earthquake) , Helen Hayes (Airport) and a seductive-as-ever Joan Collins (Sins).

Yes, it’s a very dated piece as far as the banking industry goes, with the storylines including bits on such problems as credit card fraud, embezzlement, inflation, »

Jon Stewart's scathing takedown of 'Noah's' right-wing critics is perfection

9 April 2014 5:51 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Movies for me generally fall into one of two categories: 1) movies I watch and 2) Biblical movies. "The Ten Commandments"? I'm sorry, but isn't that like four hours long? "The Passion of the Christ"? Oh yes, let me please subject myself to horrifying acts of torture porn for two whole hours."The Prince of Egypt"? I stopped watching Disney animated musicals right around the age of nine, when my heart died. So no, I probably won't be breaking the mold by checking out "Noah," Darren Aronofsky's big-budget take on the Biblical flood that looks a little too much like a remake of ""Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World" for my liking. But hey, you know who else hasn't seen the movie? The catty Stepford Wives on Fox News who are now criticizing it for not being accurate enough. And who better than Jon Stewart to point this out, »

Darren Aronofsky Strikes Again: Here Are 5 Ways 'Noah' Is Just Like 'The Fountain'

31 March 2014 7:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Darren Aronofsky's "Noah," which stars Russell Crowe as the titular ark-builder, is nothing if not ambitious. It's a film whose scope is matched by its fidgety experimentalism. It's a movie that pretends to be a biblical epic in the style of something like "The Ten Commandments," but features a sequence where the creation myth is reiterated while "Tree of Life"-style footage of the big bang and evolution zip by on screen, where Russell Crowe plays a (pre) historic hero who builds his wooden ship with the help of giant rock monsters that move with the herky-jerkiness of an old Ray Harryhausen stop motion marvel. But for all the things that "Noah" attempts (and, trust me, it attempts a lot), there's also something vaguely familiar about the entire messy enterprise. And it's true – Aronofsky and his co-screenwriter Ari Handel have already wrestled with notions of immortality and the sensation »

Hollywood Releases a Trinity of Biblical Epics: Do They Have a Prayer?

30 March 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

In the beginning, God said, "Let there be light"—but He might've added, "Camera! Action!" Since the genesis of moviemaking, Hollywood has turned to the Good Book for story inspiration, from silent-movie versions of The Ten Commandments and Ben-Hur in the 1920s to…well…blockbuster remakes of The Ten Commandments and Ben-Hur in the 1950s! When The Greatest Story Ever Told flopped in 1965, studios mostly forsook biblical spectacles. Even divine profits for The Passion of the Christ in 2004 didn't inspire execs to sign Jesus to a multipicture deal. But miracles do happen, and now religious epics are flooding theaters again like 40 days and nights of rain. Son of God, adapted from »

Noah Soundtrack Detailed, 4 New TV Spots And IMAX Poster Released

14 March 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The marketing campaign for Darren Aronofsky’s Noah is continuing today with four new TV spots, an IMAX poster and full details on Mr. Clint Mansell’s soundtrack. It’s a lot, but Paramount wants to make sure that they get people into theatres for this one. The film isn’t an easy sell, and given that it’s sure to cause quite a bit of controversy, the studio is doing everything in their power to get people on board with Aronofsky’s latest before it arrives.

Having seen Noah, I can tell you two things. And that’s pretty much all I can tell you since I’m under embargo. One, is that Mansell delivers another excellent score here. Intense, powerful and moving, it fits the film beautifully and is absolutely a highlight.

The other thing I can tell you is that the marketing for this movie is a bit, »

A Letter to Mark Burnett: Faith-Based Films Vs. Culture Wars

13 March 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Memo to: Mark Burnett

Apparently you are not content just to be television’s most prolific producer, Mark, so you have now committed yourself to a new career as a film producer — one with a specific mission. You want Hollywood to give God a comeback.

To this end, you’ve mobilized tens of millions of dollars to turn a string of outtakes and re-edited footage into a motion picture, “Son of God,” which opened to $25.6 million on 3,254 screens last week (of course, you and your allies pre-bought many of the tickets).

The film is not really new; much of the footage came from your 2013 TV miniseries, “The Bible,” with some new scenes added. While its box office numbers have made you an instant folk hero in the evangelical Christian community, you might also note that the picture is opening in the middle of a culture war that will impact the »

Interview: Roma Downey, Mark Burnett Present ‘Son of God’

25 February 2014 7:43 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Actress Roma Downey and Producer Mark Burnett are on a mission. After producing the huge success of the miniseries “The Bible” last year, the husband-and-wife team now turn to the “greatest story ever told” – the life of Jesus Christ – in the new film “Son of God.”

Roma Downey is no stranger to the ethereal aspects of religious themed programming. For nine seasons, she was the star of “Touched by an Angel,” portraying a heavenly messenger who guided earthbound humans at their crossroads. Mark Burnett is a familiar name in the television universe, having produced several mega-successful reality shows including “Survivor,” “The Voice,” “Shark Tank” and “The Apprentice.” The couple were married in 2007, and last year produced the number one rated cable TV miniseries, “The Bible.” The 10 episodes followed the book from the beginning in the Old Testament (Genesis) to the Letters of Paul in the New Testament.

Actress Miliza Milo, who can be seen -- albeit fleetingly -- in The Ten Commandments and Vertigo, two of the most important films of the 1950s, died Feb. 6 of natural causes in Sedona, Ariz. She was 91. After playing a slave in Cecil B. DeMille’s epic Ten Commandments (1956), Milo portrayed a salesperson at the Ransohoffs women’s specialty shop helping an insistent James Stewart pick out a “simple gray suit” for Kim Novak in Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece Vertigo (1958).

Can historically inaccurate movies still win Oscars?

30 January 2014 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Most of this year's Oscar contenders are based on historical events – and there are academics waiting to pounce on every slip-up and blunder. But there is more to a great movie than getting the facts straight

• Top 10 biopics

Alex von Tunzelmann's Reel History series

It's Oscars time again, and this year many of the big contenders have one thing in common. Two thirds of the contenders for best film are based on historical events. History also picks up four out of five best actor nominations, two out of five best actresses, and three out of five directors. So fierce has the competition among historical films become that it was reported that academic "history assassins" were paid handsomely by marketing consultants to spot errors in other studios' films. These errors would then be filtered out subtly through blogs, undermining rivals' Oscar hopes.

Final: The Rapture – the horror movie 'winning people to Christ'

24 January 2014 1:35 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Low-budget horror film Final: The Rapture, about the end times foretold in the Bible, is aiming to convert cinemagoers to God – through terrible dialogue and cheap effects

Rick Santorum's Christmas movie proves flop

The Ten Commandments, The Passion of the Christ, the forthcoming Russell Crowe epic Noah – the Bible has long been a wellspring for filmmakers, who have also used a struggle between Christian good and evil in horror films from The Exorcist to Stigmata. But now Christianity and horror are being blended with pure evangelism in Final: The Rapture, a low-budget thriller that is – very slowly – sweeping the Us.

"We're trying to share this so their eyes will be opened … so people go home with hope," producer Susan Chey told the Orlando Sentinel, comparing it to a "Trojan horse" that would introduce people to faith. "The Christian community loves the film because they believe in the Book of Revelation, »

Van Sant, Daniels Up For "Ten Commandments"

12 January 2014 4:38 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Wgn America is planning a ten-episode scripted event series based on The Ten Commandments. The Weinstein Company will produce the mini-series which aims to bring a "modern interpretation to each commandment"

Ten different filmmakers will each direct an episode, with the likes of Gus Van Sant ("Milk), Lee Daniels ("The Butler"), Jim Sheridan ("In America") and Wes Craven ("Nightmare on Elm Street") all set.

A fifth name though is a big surprise - "Arrested Development" actor Michael Cera will helm one of the episodes. The other five directors will be announced at a later date.

Each director will use their own creative team, which should result in some wildly differing visions. Bruce Cohen and Bob Weinstein are producing the series.
