Roma Downey On 'Son Of God': 'We Had Something Very Special'
As we prepare to celebrate Father's Day, Fox Home Entertainment has released Son of God, the feature film telling the story of Jesus which was adapted from the hit miniseries The Bible. Last week, BFTV spoke with Son of God producer and star Roma Downey to discuss the transition from miniseries to film, working professionally with her husband Mark Burnett, and how they are building on their success with future inspirational projects.

How was Son of God pulled together from the epic ten hours of The Bible? "It began while we were filming the Bible series," Roma - who stars in the movie as M...

Box Office Predictions: 'Divergent' Set To Win Weekend Over 'Muppets'

Box Office Predictions: 'Divergent' Set To Win Weekend Over 'Mup
1) Divergent- 60M Weekend, 60M Total

Sure, it seems low, given how massive The Hunger Games was. But Divergent isn’t The Hunger Games, and it hasn’t been getting as good of reviews. I still feel like I’m lowballing it a tad, but almost every other figure I’ve seen for Divergent is below mine. I think the reviews are factoring in, and people don’t see any growth over the weekend, rather the potential for drops.

2) Muppets Most Wanted- 22M Weekend, 24M Total

Counter-programming. The last Muppets did well over Thanksgiving weekend, so the hope is that the sequel will do similar business. Ho...

300: Rise of an Empire
300: Rise of an Empire topped the weekend box office, debuting at number one and generating over $45 million in ticket sales.

The film, which is the sequel to Zack Snyder's 2006 flick 300, is based on the forthcoming graphic novel "Xerxes" by Frank Miller and stars Lena Headey, Rodrigo Santoro and Eva Green.

Family film Mr. Peabody & Sherman had a strong debut at number-two with $32.5 million, with both new films pushing Liam Neeson's action thriler Non-Stop into third place with a weak $15.3 million take.

2014's most successful film, The Lego Movie, slipped to fourth place, adding anoth...

'Son Of God' Is The First Of Many Bible-Based Films In 2014

Son of God
Actress Roma Downey and her producer husband Mark Burnett have taken the success of their 2013 History Channel miniseries "The Bible" and spun off a feature film focusing on the life of Jesus Christ with Son of God, which opens in theaters today.

The couple produced the film, which stars Diogo Morgado reprising the role of Jesus from the miniseries, and are expecting it to reach millions of viewers just like their miniseries, which over 100 million people watched.

"I feel that each step of the way, we've just heard a whisper in our hearts," Downey told Carole Mikita of Utah's KSL.com.

Box Office Predictions: 'Non-Stop' Track To No. 1

February 28th, 2014 12:20pm EST
Non-Stop
1) Non-Stop- 30M Weekend, 30M Total

Non-Stop is definitely on track to dethrone The Lego Movie at the top spot. It even has a mediocre, not terrible RT score of 48%, which is almost on par with Neeson’s last February opening, Unknown. Unknown opened after Neeson had one Taken behind him. Now Neeson has become a 1st quarter superstar with films like Taken, Unknown, and The Grey all doing decent numbers. For this outing, he’s paired up with Julianne Moore, which gives him a solid #2 to bank off of. With the rest of the films in the marketplace doing kinda dismal box office, it’s hard to beli...

Box Office Predictions: ‘Robocop’ Or ‘Lego’?

Box Office Predictions: ‘Robocop’ Or ‘Lego’?
1) The Lego Movie- 47M Weekend, 126M Total

I’m predicting a decent drop for The Lego Movie, as the winter storm barraging the country seems to be affecting box office already. Many theatres in affected areas are closed, and some theatres will see limited attendance anyway as people don’t want to go outside. For those that do, I’m sure The Lego Movie will remain a top choice.

2) Robocop- 21M Weekend, 25M Total

Robocop won’t beat The Lego Movie. I know I made it seem like it might, but it won’t. Sorry. I wouldn’t have predicted it anyway, and then I saw the mid-week grosses (Robocop opened...
