Ever since "The Passion Of The Christ," studios have been chasing the religious dollar and that's probably no more evident than 2014 delivering a pair of blockbuster Bible movies: Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" and Ridley Scott's "Exodus." And while few of the God-fearing movies that have come since 'Passion' have been smash successes (they've mostly been in the vein of minor hits like "Soul Surfer"), that doesn't mean they won't keep trying. So here's "Heaven Is For Real," a movie that puts its whole premise right in the title. Based on the best-selling book "Heaven Is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back," this supposedly based-on-a-true-story thing centers on a little kid who claims to have visited heaven, and starts freaking everyone out with details of what he saw. Naturally, devil worshippers (i.e. mean kids at school) don't believe him and Greg Kinnear »

With the first trailer for Darren Aronofsky’s Noah finally appearing (you can savour its apocalyptic delights here) and Ridley Scott’s follow up to The Counsellor, Exodus, providing more than a subtle shift in tone and theme, are the Biblical epics of Hollywood’s Golden Age making a comeback?
Films such as Ben Hur, The Robe, The Ten Commandments, The Greatest Story Ever Told, Quo Vadis, David & Bathsheba and Samson & Delilah all drew on Biblical themes and then plastered them across epic canvasses, with thousands of extras, colossal set pieces, huge stars and ground-breaking special effects. Although there was a certain amount of overlap, these Biblical epics stood distinct from the “sword and sandals” era of Spartacus, The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire and their like, a sub-genre into which Ridley Scott breathed fresh life with Gladiator.
The question is, with plenty of historical content to choose from, »

Colin Farrell and Russell Crowe are at odds in an age-old battle between good and evil in this first trailer for Winter’S Tale. Set in a mythic New York City and spanning more than a century, Winter’S Tale is a love story of miracles and crossed destinies.
Bring the hankies – this tear-jerker opens Valentine’s Day 2014. For those not prone to sentimental films of the heart, The Weinstein Company’s Vampire Academy also debuts on February 14th.
The film stars Colin Farrell (“Total Recall”), Jessica Brown Findlay (TV’s “Downton Abbey”), and Oscar winners Jennifer Connelly (“A Beautiful Mind”), William Hurt (“Kiss of the Spider Woman”), Eva Marie Saint (“On the Waterfront”) and Russell Crowe (“Gladiator”). It also introduces young newcomers Ripley Sobo and Mckayla Twiggs (both from Broadway’s “Once”).

’Gravity’: Sandra Bullock and George Clooney movie on 2013’s top ten box office chart in North America Starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity is now one of the top ten movies released in 2013 in North America. On its third weekend, October 18-20, 2013, Gravity was down a modest 28 percent, grossing $31.03 million from 3,820 locations in the U.S. and Canada according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. (Photo: Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in Gravity.) Gravity easily beat several underperforming newcomers in wide release: Kimberly Peirce’s poorly received Carrie 2013 remake was a disappointment, collecting only an estimated $17 million. Chloë Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore star in the old Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie roles. Mikael Håfström’s Escape Plan, teaming Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and The Passion of the Christ’s Jim Caviezel bombed with a terrible $9.8 million. That’s not surprising, considering the »

Darren Aronofsky takes on the Bible for his next movie Noah, and though the film won't be in cinemas until 2014, there's already controversy swirling around the big budget drama. Paramount's recent test-screenings - to Jewish, Christian and general audiences - reportedly prompted "troubled reactions", leading to much speculation about what Aronofsky's epic has in store.
Noah is not the first film to fall foul of church groups - it seems that anytime a movie portrays religion, headlines and column inches swiftly follow. Digital Spy takes a look at six movies that have sparked religious uproar below...
The Devils (1971)
Ken Russell relished his reputation as a provocateur, and his early '70s drama The Devils was prime bait for the tabloids with its depiction of witchcraft, explicit nudity and Vanessa Redgrave as a masturbating nun. The film naturally fell foul of ratings boards and was heavily censored on its initial release. »
Mixed reactions at test screenings for key demographics credited for wrangle over final cut of Biblical epic starring Russell Crowe as the ark-man
With a high-profile cast including Russell Crowe as everybody's favourite antediluvian patriarch, it has been billed as a blockbuster fantasy spectacular to resurrect the biblical epic for the 21st century. But Darren Aronofsky's Noah looks to be running into trouble after it emerged that the American auteur director of Black Swan and The Wrestler is embroiled in a fight for control of his ambitious new film with studio Paramount.
The problem, according to the Hollywood Reporter, is that the two key demographics identified by producers as critical to the box office office success of the film have both reacted negatively at test screenings. Christian viewers in Arizona did not much like it, possibly because the movie plays fast and loose with its biblical subject matter, and »

Another 25 unsung greats come under the spotlight, as we provide our pick of the underappreciated films of 1993...
What a year 1993 was. It saw the release of Star Fox on the Super Nintendo. Bill Clinton became president. Season three of Deep Space Nine premiered on Us television. UK politician Douglas Hurd visited Argentina. Cyndi Lauper released her album Hat Full Of Stars.
Aside from those earth shattering events, we'll probably remember 1993, in cinema terms, as the year Jurassic Park dominated the box office like an angry Tyrannosaurus. A true phenomenon, its profits doubled those of the second most watched film in 1993 cinemas, Mrs Doubtfire, and almost three times as much as the movie below that - the Harrison Ford thriller, The Fugitive.
But as ever, there was so much more to the 1993 movie landscape than dinosaurs and Robin Williams dressed as an old woman. »
With the biblical epic currently finding a new lease of life thanks to in-development projects like Darren Aronofsky’s Noah and Ridley Scott’s Exodus, director Kevin Reynolds is eyeing his very own! Mel Gibson’s The Passion Of The Christ proved there are mega-bucks to be made from the tortured tales of the ‘good book’. Now, the filmmaker best known for enjoyable blockbusting guilty pleasures Waterworld and Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves will bring us Resurrection – the story of Jesus Christ’s rise from the dead and one that’s expected to undergo a more ‘action orientated’ journey.
Most recently, Reynolds reunited with long-time pal and collaborator Kevin Costner on the epic, all-star duelling drama series Hatfields & McCoys. So, with the iconic actor currently undergoing a ‘resurrection’ of his own with roles in Man Of Steel, Jack Ryan: Shadow One and Three Days To Kill, don’t be surprised »

With The Wicker Man getting a 40th anniversary dust-off and re-release, it got me thinking again about how rare it is that a film (or indeed a film-maker) has the stones to really plumb the depths of despair in its finale. It of course goes without saying that plenty of films have dark and desperate moments, but since the general trend is towards the cathartic nature of upbeat endings and our perceived need to go out of the theatre on a high point, lots of the interim darkness is alleviated before the credits finally roll.
Take a film like Schindler’s List. It is hard to make a case for anything in recorded history being as dark and desperate as the Holocaust, yet the tale of rescue and redemption that sits at the core of the film becomes the prevailing emphasis at the end, as the surviving relatives of the »

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
If you are an Oscar hound and festival fiend such as myself, you have likely heard of the ecstatic response Steve McQueen’s newest film, 12 Years a Slave, has received on the internet. The film had a momentous response in the mountains of Telluride, where many Oscar pundits declared the Best Picture race over and done with. Then, the film made the trek north of border to Toronto, where it got an equally warm response from the more “general audience”, movie-going public at Tiff, where it won that festival’s People’s Choice Award as the festival’s best film, an award usually given to more upbeat film’s such as last year’s winner, Silver Linings Playbook.
All of these enthusiastic responses have clearly placed 12 Years a Slave as the current frontrunner in the race for Oscar gold, but lost in all this track betting »

Cinematographer Wally Pfister, in the midst of filming his feature directorial debut, “Transcendence,” enjoys some distinct advantages in his new role: One of his executive producers is Christopher Nolan, with whom he has collaborated exclusively, dating back to the director’s breakthrough film “Memento”; the star of his sci-fi movie is worldwide box office magnet Johnny Depp; Pfister’s picture will be released by Hollywood’s biggest studio, Warner Bros., and he was empowered with the kind of budget — approximately $100 million — few first-timers are afforded.
But those advantages are freighted with the expectations and pressures that come with such a large-scale endeavor. Besides, remarkably few directors of photography have successfully made a longterm transition to helming features. Among those, a mere handful — George Stevens, Barry Sonnenfeld and Jan de Bont among them — have enjoyed critical and commercial success. And only one, Nicolas Roeg, could be seen as a unique stylist whose creative stamp is unmistakable. »

Sad international split news. Monica Bellucci and Vincent Cassel have separated "by mutual agreement" after 14 years of marriage, a rep for Cassel confirmed to Agence France-Presse. The actors met on the set of the 1996 French-language film L'appartement and tied the knot in 1999. They have two daughters together, 8-year-old Deva and 3-year-old Léonie. The Italian-born Bellucci, who starred in The Passion of the Christ and the two Matrix sequels, told Grazia magazine back in April, referring to marriage, "We never know how long it will last." "Today, it works, but in a year...I don't know," she said. Around the same time, Cassel »
