Back in 2004, Mel Gibson’s biblical epic stormed the box office taking over $622 million on a budget of just $30 million. However, despite its success, The Passion of the Christ was met with controversy. Polarised reviews saw some critics praise the film’s portrayal of Jesus’s final 12 hours, while others found the violence too extreme or accused the film of alleged antisemitism.The Passion of the Christ was even nominated for three Oscars in Best Makeup, Cinematography and Best Original Score.But since its release, Jesus star Jim Caviezel claims he’s struggled to get Hollywood acting work.Speaking with Breitbart, the 51-year-old, a man of “outspoken faith”, was asked about a “politically-driven blacklisting” of his career after starring in the biblical epic.Caviezel said: “I had no cho

Favreau, who went on to direct Iron Man and now The Mandalorian Disney Plus show, was clearly open to the idea.He said: "You can play with the narrative structure and you can play with things in a way where you could do a cool version that the fans would like, and the people that were involved in it might be so charmed by it that they’d be involved in some other capacity."The problem seems to be that one of those people was not so charmed by the director himself.James Caan, who played his real father in the classic film, spelled out the problem rather bluntly this week.if(typeof utag_data.ads.fb_pixel!=="undefined"&&utag_data.ads.fb_pixel==!0){!function(f,b,e,v,n,t,s){if(f.fbq)return;n=f.fbq=function(){n.callMethod?n.callMethod.apply(n,arguments):n.queue.push(arguments)};if(!f._fbq)f._f

In immediate response to the breaking news today, major UK bookies Coral suspended bets on who will be the next James Bond.A spokesman for Coral told Express Online: "The betting on who will play James Bond is always popular with our punters, with James Norton and Sam Heughan the two most recent favourites, but Tom Hardy has always been close to the head of the betting."Hardy was as short as 6-4 favourite last year, so if he has indeed landed the coveted role, the bookies will have been left shaken if not stirred."if(typeof utag_data.ads.fb_pixel!=="undefined"&&utag_data.ads.fb_pixel==!0){!function(f,b,e,v,n,t,s){if(f.fbq)return;n=f.fbq=function(){n.callMethod?n.callMethod.apply(n,arguments):n.queue.push(arguments)};if(!f._fbq)f._fbq=n;n.push=n;n.loaded=!0;n.version='2.0';n.queue=[];t=b...

As it stands, the latest James Bond movie No Time To Die will hit UK cinemas on November 12, 2020. But could the fourth release date for the Daniel Craig movie become a fifth? After all, other blockbusters set to release this year have moved to at least Christmas, like Wonder Woman 1984, while Disney’s Black Widow is rumoured to move from its current late October date.In a recent update, MGM seemed to suggest a move to 2021 for No Time To Die is certainly possible.Speaking at the studio’s investor call, COO Christopher Brearton said last month: “We continue to monitor and adjust the timing of our remaining 2020 [film] slate.”That’s hardly a commitment to sticking to the November release date, but for now that’s what MGM are “currently” doing.Brearton added: “The theatrical marketplace i
