The Billion-Dollar Christian Movie By David Outten, Production Editor   Paramount Pictures invested heavily in a remake of BEN-HUR with dreams of attracting large Christian audiences like the ones that attended the original starring Charlton Heston. The resulting huge loss could frighten major studios considering reaching out to Christian audiences. Earlier this year Focus Features didn’t do well with THE YOUNG MESSIAH. This doesn’t mean there’s no Christian audience to serve. It simply means BEN HUR and THE YOUNG MESSIAH were not what that audience wanted to pay to see. JOHN CARTER and THE LONE RANGER were not what audiences wanted to pay to see either, but no one concludes that the adventure market is dead. The...

The Dangerous Philosophy of Writing Your Own Story:  Behind the Scenes of KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS By Abbie DeHaas, Contributing Writer Individuality rules our culture. It’s assumed that you will know your own destiny and follow it accordingly. This is a dangerous philosophy for anyone, especially children, since we know that God holds our future, and we need not worry about being in control. Sadly, this humanistic thought is one of the strong themes and messages of the animated movie KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS from Laika animation studios. At a recent press conference, MOVIEGUIDE® had a chance to speak with the cast and the director of KUBO. Director Travis Knight, who’s also CEO of LAIKA animation studios, has always b...

Is Hollywood Settling for One Hit Wonders? By David Outten, Production Editor The Hollywood Reporter recently provided some box office analysis titled, “’Suicide Squad’ and the Summer of Steep Second week Drops.” The story exposes a new problem in Hollywood whereby box office totals for blockbuster movies plummet sharply in their second week. Some of this they attribute appropriately to bad word of mouth, but it’s also true that times have changed. The typical digital projection multiplex theater can now host 15 or more daily showing of a new release. There’s less need to fear a full house and wait for the second or third weekend to see a movie. In 1985, BACK TO THE FUTURE opened in 1,420 theaters to $11.2 millio...
 

 
Ben-Hur: The Story Behind the Book that Inspired the Movies

Ben-Hur: The Story Behind the Book that Inspired the Movies By Jerry Newcombe, D.Min. A remake of Ben-Hur movie is about to hit the movie screens. What’s fascinating to me is the story behind the book, which has also inspired two previous movies---the 1925 silent version and the 1959 movie-of-the-year, starring Charlton Heston. That version won 11 Oscars, more than any other movie before it and has only since been tied by Titanic (1997). I have not yet seen the new Ben-Hur, but I look forward to it and am glad that it comes highly recommended by some Christian leaders. Did you know that the subtitle of the best-selling 1880 book by Lew Wallace is: “A Tale of the Christ”? I own a copy, which was re-released in 1959 to co...
