Kevin Costner Takes the Bite Out of Shark Rumor: 'Half the Story is True'

4 April 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Kevin Costner proved his deep sea fighting skills in Waterworld, but rumors that he recently beat up a 15-foot shark have turned out to be a bit fishy.

Risen review – soft-centred Easter tale

20 March 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The messiah is ‘beamingly benign’ and Pilate a ‘harassed fusspot’ in this Passion of the Christ-lite

In 2004, Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ became an astonishing Easter hit, depicting in horrifyingly graphic fashion the torture and crucifixion of Jesus. This “faith-based” offering from Waterworld director Kevin Reynolds picks up where Gibson’s film left off (albeit in less brutal fashion), with Joseph Fiennes’s Roman tribune Clavius investigating reports that the man whose death he witnessed has risen from the grave. It’s solidly middling fare, soft of heart and script, and given to moments of foolishly miraculous folly. Peter Firth plays Pilate as a harassed fusspot, while Cliff Curtis (so brilliant in 2014’s The Dark Horse) is beamingly benign as the resurrected “Yeshua”.

Film Review: Risen

17 March 2016 2:25 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ From Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and Waterworld director Kevin Reynolds, Risen provides an alternative viewpoint on the Resurrection and its aftermath. A film that starts out with earnest intentions ends up falling somewhere between a two-thousand-year-old episode of Silent Witness and an educational video R.E. teachers might play to schoolchildren. That's not to say that Risen is without its virtues; the production values are solid, the soundtrack not overly intrusive and whilst the characterisation leaves something to be desired, Joseph Fiennes does his best with a lot of middle-distance staring.

Box Office: ‘Deadpool’ Makes Another Splash with $50 Million-Plus Weekend

19 February 2016 1:31 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ryan Reynolds’ “Deadpool” is showing plenty of life in its second weekend at the U.S. box office with more than $50 million, according to early estimates Friday.

Fox’s surprise blockbuster should continue to dominate moviegoing this weekend over a trio of newcomers. A24’s horror film “The Witch” looks like the strongest of the three, heading for as much as $13 million while Sony’s religious drama “Risen” is attracting faith-based customers with about $11 million.

Jesse Owens biopic “Race” appears headed for a moderate start with about $8 million for Focus, in line with expectations. “The Witch” may scare up enough business to finish ahead of the fourth weekend of “Kung Fu Panda 3,” which has amassed $105 million so far at the U.S. box office.

Deadpool,” which grossed $180 million in its first week, should manage to eclipse the combined box office of the next four finishers. It has a shot »

Movie Review: Risen

19 February 2016 10:47 AM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

No matter what, religion is always going to be interesting debate in any form of an adaption. That’s why biblical films are hard to make and why we have so few. The Passion of the Christ (2004) was a film about the last twelve hours of the life of Jesus which was marked by much controversy due its violent and graphic themes. A different kind of biblical film was The Prince of Egypt (1998), an animated film, which was designed specifically for the kid market. When it comes down to it, the stand out biblical film will always be The Ten Commandments (1956). It was a film that was not only unique for its time but it has also remained popular to the present day. The new biblical film Risen brings more of a blockbuster feel to the genre. Directed by Kevin Reynolds, who is probably best remembered for directing the infamous »

Risen review – biblical CSI: Jerusalem loses faith in its premise

19 February 2016 4:57 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Joseph Fiennes’s Roman soldier goes on the hunt for a missing body and finds Jesus in this retelling of the crucifixion, which despite scripting sins is heaven compared with other religious films

A detective is summoned to his chief’s office, where he’s read the riot act. Get some results and get them fast – the head of the entire department will be here in a matter of days! Lean on your informants if you have to, just solve this case and solve it now! It’s a scene from a thousand different cop movies, only this time the detective is a Roman tribune, his angry boss is Pontius Pilate, the ticking clock is a visit from Emperor Tiberius and the missing person is Jesus of Nazareth, the risen Christ.

It’s not a bad idea, really, to graft the conventions of a police procedural on to a Bible epic, »

Risen – The Review

18 February 2016 6:57 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Risen is a modest but engaging riff on the old post-crucifixion Easter legend as told through the eyes of a non-believer. In 33 Ad Jerusalem, Roman occupiers are under threat of a Jewish uprising. The Jews claim a Nazarene named Yeshua (aka Jesus – played by Clifton Curtis) is the Messiah, so Pontius Pilate (Peter Firth) promptly has him crucified, then orders Roman officer Clavius (Joseph Fiennes) to witness the execution and help dispose of the body. Three days later Jesus’ corpse has vanished from its cave tomb, though the entrance was blocked with a boulder and watched by guards. Pilate orders Clavius and Lucius (Tom Felton), to find Jesus and his disciples at all costs, for fear that if they don’t quickly produce a corpse, the Jews will rise up.  Thus begins a manhunt of biblical proportions.

Risen is the latest Christian-friendly production from (now Sony-owned) Affirm Films, which has »

Film Review: ‘Risen’

18 February 2016 3:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Whether or not it triggers a craze for divinely inspired detective stories, “Risen” makes a decent case for itself as the “Columbo” of the genre: It’s amiable, creaky and not remotely predicated on the element of surprise. Set in the days after the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, this pleasantly plodding New Testament noir follows a Roman soldier who, under orders from Pontius Pilate, sets out to solve the mystery of the missing Messiah — only to realize, long after most viewers will, that he is in fact playing a key role in the Greatest Story Ever Retold. By dint of its unusual time frame and perspective, Kevin Reynolds’ film adopts a lighter, more playful tone than most Hollywood biblical epics, largely steering clear of heavy-handed dramatics and kitschy pageantry as it tells a slow-moving story of spiritual awakening. Still, Sony’s pre-Easter release is unlikely to ascend to »

Risen Review

18 February 2016 3:00 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Catholicism classes everywhere, rejoice! Teachers now have another biblical epic worthy of a Friday treat; one that praises the word of the Lord with little inquisitive substance. Risen, directed by Kevin Reynolds (of Waterworld fame), has all the makings of a deceptive religious adventure, and plenty of bias to go around. Believers will find the holy spirit surging through their soul, while fence-teeterers might leave overstuffed, and a bit disillusioned, by a message that never grows larger than two simple words: “Have faith.” If you’ve got it, great! If you don’t? Find it! There. Risen has solved years of bloodshed and despair in the name of unseen deities. Too bad I had my money on the Flying Spaghetti Monster!

Joseph Fiennes stars as Clavius, a Roman Tribune who witnesses the resurrection of Jesus through his own eyes. Clavius’ perspective is that of a third party, so we’re »

12 of cinema's biggest and most expensive film sets

9 February 2016 4:08 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

We celebrate a century of huge and expensive film sets, from historical epics to sprawling fantasies and sci-fi action movies...

The advent of cinema saw the art of set design gradually spread its wings from the relative confines of the theatre. As movies established their own language and became ever more ambitious in the early part of the 20th century, so set designers were called on to create increasingly expansive and more detailed backdrops.

As the list of movies below proves, the construction of huge sets has been a  major part of cinema for the past century. And with scale comes expense, as the recreation of ancient landmarks, futuristic cities or doomed ocean liners takes hundreds of artists, designers and crafty types months of labour to plan and construct. Often, these sets are on the screen for a few scant minutes before they're torn down and largely »
