Joaquin Phoenix Is Jesus Christ in First Mary Magdalene Trailer
Universal Pictures UK has released the first trailer for Mary Magdalene, which has been slated to arrive in the U.K. on March 16, 2018 and in the U.S. on March 30, 2018. The trailer gives us our first look at actress Rooney Mara, who takes on the iconic role of Mary Magdalene for this historical drama. What will be interesting to see as this film gets closer to hitting theaters is if it will be the next movie to try and remove itself from the now-toxic Weinstein Company brand.

While Universal Pictures International is handling distribution in both the U.K. and Germany, The Weinstein Company is handling U.S. distribution, and after the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal, many of the company's projects have went to great lengths to distance themselves from the company. Awards season hopeful Wind River cut all ties with The Weinstein Company, getting outside funding for an

Mark Rylance Joins Action Thriller The Gunman

Mark Rylance Joins Action Thriller The Gunman
Given that he's best known for the punchy Taken, Pierre Morel's assembling a seriously high-value cast for his next film, The Gunman. He's already lined up Sean Penn, Idris Elba, Javier Bardem and Ray Winstone for the action thriller; now Mark Rylance is set to sign on as well.How familiar you are with Rylance may depend on how closely you follow award-winning theatre, since he's basically in all of it. Oh sure, he's appeared in films like The Other Boleyn Girl and Anonymous (let's pretend he wasn't in the latter, eh? At least he only played a Shakespearean actor, which is casting for type). But it's really incredible turns on stage in the likes of Jerusalem and basically the entire Shakespeare canon for which he's best known. He's a double Tony and Olivier winner, and will no doubt be stretched not-at-all to play the nemesis to Sean Penn's spy.

Ben Hur – DVD Review

DVD Review

Ben Hur

Directed by: Steve Shill

Cast: Joseph Morgan, Stephen Campbell Moore, Emily VanCamp, Ray Winstone, Alex Kingston, Hugh Bonneville

Running Time: 3 hr 12 mins

Rating: Not Rated

Due Out: April 30, 2013

Plot: When a tile falls during a Roman parade, Judah Ben-Hur (Morgan) and his family are wrongfully punished. Sent away to be a slave, Ben-Hur eventually returns to his home seeking revenge.

Who’S It For? Those who enjoyed History Channel’s The Bible or other similar adaptations might find some enjoyment in this Ben Hur miniseries. Anyone who is only interested in seeing what an updated take on the chariot race looks like should save themselves the trouble.

Movie:

Though its aspirations are far more modest, I went in expecting Ben Hur to be similar to the recent History Channel miniseries, The Bible. While I’m not religious, I slogged through it because I still find a lot of the stories interesting.

Ben Hur – DVD Review

  • HeyUGuys
It is the early part of the first century Ad and Rome occupies Judea. Judah Ben-Hur, a young Jewish man has been friends with Messala, a Roman and the son of a powerful Senator, since they were boys. On the day that Messala rides back into Jerusalem with the newly appointed governor Pontius Pilate, an accidental slip by Ben-Hur’s family results in tiles falling from their home onto Pilate. Pilate is determined to make an example of them, sentencing Ben-Hur to be crucified and his mother and sister to be garroted. Somehow, Judah finds himself a slave on a Roman galleon instead, though he continues to hope for escape, that he might exact his revenge on Messala.

Ben Hur was originally a novel, then a silent epic, then the mother of all sword and sandals epics, courtesy of William Wyler and Charlton Heston. It is epic in length, in geographical scope,
