WASHINGTON (AP) -- More than seven years after an airline captain saved 155 lives by ditching his crippled airliner in the Hudson River, now the basis of a new movie, most of the safety recommendations stemming from the accident haven't been carried out....
Denver, Colo., Sep 15, 2016 / 03:04 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Most people know Jim Henson as the man who brought the world the beloved comedic puppet characters known as the Muppets: Kermit the Frog, his on-again, off-again diva girlfriend Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, and Big Bird, to name just a few.But most people aren’t familiar with Jim’s wife Jane, the co-creator of the Muppets – and a Catholic.For years, Jane worked side by side with Jim, creating and performing their various shows since their teenage years. As the Muppet project grew into T.V. shows and movies - The Muppet Show, The Muppet Movie, Sesame Street – the characters became household names across America.“People don’t know Jane Henson,” said Sean Keohane, a puppeteer who worked with Jane on her later puppet nativity show.“Everybody knows Jim Henson, but they don’t know that he was married and there were two people back there in the beginning – it was those two for 2...
Denver, Colo., Sep 14, 2016 / 06:02 am (CNA).- Catholic Twitter has been catfished.To define some terms, Catholic Twitter is a subculture where (mostly young) and hipster-lifestyle-inclined Catholics follow each other, share ideas, and tweet about faith, life and everything in between.For some, it can serve as a faith community in an otherwise very secular world. Strong friendships, and even relationships, forged in the Catholic Twitter forum are not uncommon.Catfishing, then, is an internet-ism that refers to someone pretending to be someone they’re not on social media sites, such as Facebook. (For an explanation of the marriage of fish and internet terminology, check out this article by Slate. TL;DR, it’s from a movie.)Today, Catholic Twitter found out that one of their own had been catfishing.The popular account @ThisCatholicGirl, which had amassed thousands of followers (a feat on Catholic Twitter) was outed as a fake this week in a blog post by Chase Padusniak, a gr...
Rome, Italy, Sep 13, 2016 / 12:02 am (CNA).- If you have ever wondered what it would be like to have been there when Jesus preached the Sermon on the Mount, or to have stood next to the Blessed Virgin Mary at the foot of the cross, then a new feature-film length virtual reality of the life of Christ may give you the chance.  “Jesus VR – The Story of Christ,” is a 90-minute long visual and auditory experience – a lot like watching a movie – except that the viewer feels like he or she is there, including being able to look 360 degrees around and 180 degrees up and down.The film's tag line: “Closer than you've ever been.”Mostly developed for video games so far, Virtual Reality (VR) is a relatively new computer technology which (usually) uses software-generated images and sounds to give the user the experience of feeling like he or she is actually “inside” the game.What makes Jesus VR the first media of its kind, is that...
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Losing thrust in both engines but still managing to land an airliner full of people in the Hudson River without the loss of a single life is plenty dramatic. But the drama in "Sully," the movie about the "Miracle on the Hudson" ditching of U.S. Airways Flight 1549, doesn't stop there....
Despite widespread attention over diversity in the movie business, a new study finds that little is changing in Hollywood for women, minorities, LGBT people and others who continue to find themselves on the outside of an industry where researchers say inequality is "the norm."...
A report to be released Wednesday by the Media, Diversity and Social Change Initiative at the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism finds little evidence of Hollywood improving in the diversity of its movie characters or directors. The study has been a nearly annual effort going back to 2007, each year studying the demographics of the 100 most popular films at the North American box office. Here are some of the study's key findings f...

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Gene Wilder, the frizzy-haired actor who brought his deft comedic touch to such unforgettable roles as the neurotic accountant in "The Producers" and the deranged animator of "Young Frankenstein," has died. He was 83....
