Debates Rose over "Facing the Giants" Ratings

July 03, 2006 05:38:04 GMT

Being given a PG rating instead of a G rating, "Facing the Giants" has worked its way to the Congress as House Majority Whip Roy Blunt, R-Mo., and other lawmakers have lined-up together to demand explanations from the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) following complaints that the movie was rated so due to religious content.

In his letter to MPAA Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Dan Glickman, Blunt expressed his dissatisfaction of the association's decision concerning the matter. "This incident raises the disquieting possibility that the MPAA considers exposure to Christian themes more dangerous for children than exposure to gratuitous sex and violence," so he wrote.

Top 10 Highest-Grossing Movies in Box Office Week-List

July 03, 2006 04:19:47 GMT

Great is presumably the right word to describe the return of Man of Steel on big screen. The latest installment of the hero, "Superman Returns", has satisfyingly worked its charm toward the audience to top this week's box-office list with $52.15 million it has gathered over opening weekend, altogether making $84.2 million of its five-day total since its Wednesday debut.

Another new wide release, "The Devil Wears Prada", also resulted well on the chart, taking up the second position after successfully garnering $27 million which was beyond industry analysts' expectation that have assumed the movie to debut less than $20 million. Last week's number 1, "Click", secured the third with $19.4 million followed by "Cars" and "Nacho Libre" on number 4 and 5, respectively.

"Birds" to be Hatched in Platinum Dunes' Nest

July 03, 2006 03:11:43 GMT

While "The Hitcher" is still in production, Platinum Dunes apparently cannot wait a little bit longer to come up with another film remake as producer Brad Fuller has revealed that the company is developing "The Birds", a new version of Alfred Hitchcock's 1963 suspense classic of the same name, so IGN has reported.

Even so, the movie is likely to present different characters and plot from the original one though the story is based on the same short story that Hitchcock had adapted before. "The concept of birds, certainly, that's the core of the movie but the situations and the plot come from the short story not from the Hitchcock film," Fuller stated firmly.
