NEW YORK — On the red carpet of the premiere of "Hacksaw Ridge" at the Sheen Center on Wednesday, Academy Award-winning actor and director Mel Gibson talked about Christian World World II hero Desmond Doss, and the amazing example he set by sticking to his convictions and turning the other cheek.
"Hacksaw Ridge" is based on the extraordinary true story of Doss, played by Andrew Garfield ("The Amazing Spider Man"), who served in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle in the Pacific and miraculously saved 75 men without firing a shot.
Doss served as a Private First Class in the U.S. Army but refused to kill or carry a weapon into combat because of his personal beliefs as a Seventh-day Adventist. Consequently, he thought it was fitting to become a medic during the war. more >>

Doss was a devout Seventh-day Adventist played in the film by actor Andrew Garfield, who despite being brutally challenged for his faith, refused to bear arms or kill. more >>
Actor and director Mel Gibson has continued dropping hints about his planned sequel to his 2004 blockbuster "Passion of the Christ," by telling Stephen Colbert of "The Late Show" that the film will be called "Resurrection," and might feature characters visiting other realms.
"It's not just some chronological telling of just that event. That could be boring, and you think, 'Oh, we read that,'" Gibson told Colbert of what to potentially expect from the sequel. "But what are the other things around it that happened?"
Gibson, who is also promoting his newly released "Hacksaw Ridge" war epic, revealed that he is teaming up with "Braveheart" screenwriter Randall Wallace to work on "Resurrection," though he admitted that the project is still at least three year off, because "it's a big subject." more >>
The upcoming film "The Case for Christ," based on Lee Strobel's best-selling book of the same name, will make its big screen debut in spring 2017 and will take viewers along his journey from atheism to faith.
The film will explore Strobel's journey as an unwavering atheist who used his skills as an award-winning investigative journalist to try and disprove Christianity. His findings, however, led him to become a believer in Christ.
According to the film's synopsis, the movie "draws on the true story of Lee and Leslie Strobel, whose marriage struggled mightily as her growing faith collided with his determined atheism. The dramatic retelling of their journey offers heart and a human touch on the in-depth research Lee Strobel conducted." more >>
