The faith-based film, “War Room,” from director Alex Kendrick (“Courageous,” “Firestorm”) opens nationwide on Friday, August 28th. I talked to the cast via phone, T.C. Stallings (Tony Jordan) and Michael Jr. (Michael), to talk about the movie and its message of the power of prayer. Take a look!
Here's the official synopsis of "War Room"
SYNOPSIS: Tony and Elizabeth Jordan have it all-great jobs, a beautiful daughter, and their dream house. But appearances can be deceiving. Tony and Elizabeth Jordan's world is actually crumbling under the strain of a failing marriage. While Tony basks in his professional success and flirts with temptation, Elizabeth resigns herself to increasing bitterness. But their lives take an unexpected turn when Elizabeth meets her newest client, Miss Clara, and is challenged to establish a "war room" and a battle plan of prayer for her family. As Elizabeth tries to fight for her family, Tony's hidden struggles come to light. Tony must decide if he will make amends to his family and prove Miss Clara's wisdom that victories don't come by accident. (C) Sony

Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg team up once again for “American Ultra.” They made us fall in love with their chemistry in “Adventureland,” but will we like their new film? Take a look at my review!

First off, let me tell you that it makes such a big difference when you love the movie you’re interviewing for. And that’s the extent of what I’m going to tell you about “American Ultra” until my review next week. For now, I hope you have fun watching my interview with the fantastic Kristen Stewart, all glowing and happy, and the sweet and smart Jesse Eisenberg.
The two play a stoner couple whose relationship is bound to be tested when Mike’s (Eisenberg) identity is revealed. In this interview, we talked about the script, their characters, their chemistry, Stewart’s movie choices post-Twilight, and Eisenberg’s love of the Filipino culture! I’m Filipino and that made me happy!
Oh yeah, I made sure I didn’t ask any questions they spoofed on Funny or Die!
“American Ultra” comes out in theaters on Aug. 21st.
Here’s the Official Synopsis of “American Ultra”
American Ultra is a fast-paced action comedy about Mike (Eisenberg), a seemingly hapless and unmotivated stoner whose small-town life with his live-in girlfriend, Phoebe (Stewart), is suddenly turned upside down. Unbeknownst to him, Mike is actually a highly trained, lethal sleeper agent. In the blink of an eye, as his secret past comes back to haunt him, Mike is thrust into the middle of a deadly government operation and is forced to summon his inner action-hero in order to survive.
