    "Wonder Woman" star Gal Gadot is set to play a real-life hero in a new movie she is also producing. The Israeli actress made the announcement Friday in a post on social media, saying she is "excited" to start a production company, Pilot Wave, with her husband, Yaron Varsano, and star in their first film "Irena Sendler," about a Polish nurse who ran an underground operation smuggling thousands of children out of the Warsaw Ghetto during the Holocaust. “As producers, we want to help bring stories that have inspired us to life," Gadot told Deadline. "Pilot Wave will create content...

    Critics are branding the new “Rambo” movie as racist because it dares to depict the actual violence that takes place on the Unites States’ southern border. “Rambo: Last Blood” is being slammed by professional critics as xenophobic, racist, and a call for President Trump’s border wall thanks to its politically incorrect storyline.

    SNIP “If I believed this film could incite violence, I wouldn’t have made it,” he wrote in an email to Variety. He also said he was devastated by the shootings and agreed with the decision to not release the film after he said it had been misinterpreted. “I was devastated by going to sleep to El Paso and waking up to Dayton,” Craig Zobel said. “These types of moments happen far too often. In the wake of these horrific events, we immediately considered what it meant for the timing of our film. Once inaccurate assumptions about the content and intent...

    In a just world, O.J. Simpson would currently be serving the 24th year of a double life sentence; Ronald Reagan would have been president during America's bicentennial instead of Gerald Ford — and Galaxy Quest would've earned half-a-billion bucks at the box office when it came out in 1999. But inept and indifferent studio marketing (plus competition from another "sci-fi" comedy, Ghostbusters) relegated Galaxy Quest to semi-cult status. Which is ironically appropriate, given its plot: At a science fiction convention, fans await an appearance by the cast of Galaxy Quest, a hokey interstellar TV adventure series unceremoniously cancelled in the...
  • ‘Unplanned’ Movie Banned In Canada

    The pro-life movie "Unplanned" has been effectively banned from screening in Canadian cinemas, reports LifeSiteNews. Speaking with Chuck Konzelman — writer, director, and producer of the Abby Johnson biopic — LifeSiteNews learned that the largest distribution companies in Canada – Landmark, Cineplex, and Mongrel Media — have refused to let "Unplanned" play in theaters. "In Canada, Cineplex basically has monopolistic power ... the National Post mentions them as controlling nearly 80 percent of all movie screens, and from our limited experience, they seem to have many of the most desirable locations, in and near the major metropolitan areas," Konzelman told...
  • Disney's 'Tolkien' Movie Cuts Out the Christian Faith That Inspired His Life and Work

    Disney's new film Tolkien premiers this weekend, and the trailers promise an engrossing biopic, complete with scenes from the First World War. The movie aims to show how J.R.R. Tolkien's early life inspired the creative genius behind such works as The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, which are rightly recognized as classics and which both inspired epic film franchises (one far superior to the other). Yet the new Disney film cuts out some of the most important influences in his life. The movie does not once mention the great ex-atheist and Christian author C.S. Lewis, a close friend...

    Sure, The Avengers: Endgame is a conservative movie, just like Star Wars and Star Trek. “Not Star Trek!” shriek its doughy fanboys, who go on to point out how that cinematic universe embraces collectivism: the characters all conform, have no money and don’t believe in God.Fine, then Star Trek is a millennial movie series. No, scratch that – Captain Kirk used to get babes and millennials are famously barren.Now, it’s not like Avengers is blatant about its politics, as if the characters chose up sides in some sort of civil war. Oh wait, they did do that a few movies ago,...

    The Daily Wire ^ | 4/4/2019 | Amanda Prestigiacomo
    The film, for those who are uninitiated, follows the real-life journey of Planned Parenthood defector Abby Johnson from abortion mouthpiece to pro-life crusader. I was blown away by how effectively “UNPLANNED” manages to be genuinely entertaining, & exposes all-things abortion. Actress Ashely Bratcher is spectacular, followed only by the performance of Robia Scott, who plays a beautiful villain as the Planned Parenthood executive overseeing Johnson. Much like the abortion industry itself, the character on the outside is neat and beautiful, but ugly, vicious, and money-driven just below the surface. The most important scene to me was not the powerful ultrasound-guided...

    'Unplanned' Shatters Box Office Estimates In Opening The pro-life film “Unplanned” took in double the estimated ticket sales during its opening weekend and topped Disney’s “Captain Marvel” in per theater sales. According to The Hollywood Reporter, tracking of ticket sales heading into the movie’s debut weekend suggested “Unplanned” would garner $3 million; however, the Christian-based film ended up earning $6.1 million at the box office, landing it in the top 5. The movie screened in 1,059 theaters, giving it a per-theater average of $5,770 and putting it slightly ahead of the Disney distributed “Captain Marvel’s” $5,100 tally in 3,985 theaters....

    “Beam me up Scotty.” These are an abortionist’s words directing a nurse to turn on the suction machine, words Abby Johnson heard when she was unexpectedly summoned to the procedure room of the Bryan, Texas Planned Parenthood clinic, of which she was the manager, to assist in an ultra-sound guided abortion. She was stunned to observe that the 13 week-old fetus pulled away from the invading suction cannula. Johnson recounts the abortion in her 2010 book Unplanned: “The cannula was already being rotated by the doctor, and now I could see the tiny body violently twisting with it. For the...

    Captain Marvel is going higher, further, faster at the box office. The Marvel film easily soared past its competition for the biggest opening weekend of 2019 and the first title of the year to open to more than $100 million. It won the box office with an estimated opening total of $153 million in ticket sales at 4,310 theaters in the U.S. and Canada from Friday through Sunday. It marks the seventh biggest opening for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the second-biggest debut of a new Marvel character on the big-screen, behind only last year’s record-breaking Black Panther.

    Last Saturday night I had the privilege of attending Mike Cernovich's event, "NIGHT FOR FREEDOM." at the National Plaza in Maryland right outside of Washington, DC. It coincided with the last day of CPAC and I was so pleased to see so many young, enthusiastic Republicans at this event. We got to see his next documentary, "BLOOD MONEY." It was a disturbing look at how Qatar is buying influence in Washington, the media and Universities. I am attaching the trailer. When the full documentar is out (It's only like 20 minutes) I will post that as well. Joy Villa was...

    It should go without saying that if you’ve never been to war, you can’t pretend to know what it’s like. Yet for those of us who never have been, the movies have created our image of war; they’re the closest thing to it that most of us are likely to get. I’ll never forget the first time I saw the “Ride of the Valkyries” helicopter attack sequence in “Apocalypse Now.” I was a college newspaper intern who’d talked my way into the film’s American premiere on Aug. 15, 1979, at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York. The movie, in a...

    The Hollywood Reporter celebrated the occasion by republishing its original review of Blazing Saddles. Here is an excerpt: The screenplay by Brooks, Norman Steinberg, Andrew Bergman, Richard Pryor and Alan Uger (from a story by Bergman) is totally irreverent, never passing up a chance to point up a cliche and sparing nothing or no one along the way. The language is definitely R-rated but it never becomes offensive. In fact, the incongruous pairing of the language and the characters accounts for a great deal of the boisterous humor. Brooks' fast-paced direction is a masterpiece of comedy detail, filled with delightful...

    It wasn’t all bad news at the box office this past year. The movie industry as a whole may be boringly left-wing, but occasionally a conservative message breaks through, sometimes intentionally and sometimes accidentally or because filmmakers simply applied themselves to telling the truth. Here are ten films that brought conservative concepts to the multiplex in 2018, ranked according to conservative firepower:
