SNAKE AND MONGOO$E OPENS IN THEATERS SEPTEMBER 6

In a Wild Trip Down Memory Lane, Movie Traces Drag Racing’s Most Colorful Rivalry Between Don “The Snake” Prudhomme and Tom “The Mongoose” McEwen

Los Angeles, CA – Entertainment Universe, in association with Rhino Films and the National Hot Rod Association, announces the theatrical release of Snake and Mongoo$e, the much anticipated film capturing one of the greatest rivalries in auto racing history.

Snake and Mongoo$e will open nationally theaters on the heels of the National Hot Rod Association’s US Nationals in Indianapolis, where special events will be held surrounding the film and the cars featured. The film will debut in cities coinciding with the areas where the NHRA holds its national events and heritage/nostalgia races.

Opening cities include (but are not limited to)

September 6:  Pomona, CA; Charlotte, NC; Dallas, TX; Gainesville, FL; Bakersfield, CA and Bowling Green, KY

September 13: Las Vegas, NV; Englishtown, NJ; Seattle, WA; Chicago, IL; New York NY

September 20:  Topeka, KS; Reading PA; Houston TX; Bristol TN; St Louis MO

September 27: Epping, NH; Denver, CO; Norwalk, OH; Atlanta GA; Sonoma CA and Phoenix, AZ

The film tells the story of the groundbreaking accomplishments of drivers Don “The Snake” Prudhomme and Tom “The Mongoose” McEwen in the world of drag racing.  While being fierce competitors on the track, the pair were close friends who managed to revolutionize entertainment sports marketing when they attracted Mattel’s Hot Wheels Division as a sponsor.

Jesse Williams (Grey’s Anatomy) as “the Snake” and Richard Blake (Dragonball:Evolution) as “the Mongoose” were honored to study their namesakes for weeks in order to bring them to life on the big screen.  The film also features Noah Wyle, Tim Blake Nelson, Ian Ziering, Fred Dryer, John Heard, Ashley Hinshaw, Leonardo Nam, Kim Shaw and Julie Mond.

The film highlights the formative, dangerous glory years of drag racing during the 1960s and 70s.  Prudhomme, a seven-time NHRA U.S. Nationals winner and four-time NHRA World Champion, and McEwen, an NHRA U.S. Nationals winner who’s also held many prestigious titles in other national events, raced each other at speeds in excess of 200 mph for over 30 years.

“These guys regularly threw caution to the wind as they strapped themselves into untested racecars powered by volatile, explosive 2,000 horsepower engines – and they did it week after week.  It took a huge amount of guts to do that,” explains Writer and Executive Producer Alan Paradise.   Their efforts lead to an extraordinarily lucrative sponsorship by Mattel’s “Hot Wheels” brand – a partnership that resulted in bringing the sport of drag racing to the mainstream, and revolutionized branding in the business of sports.

“It was a complicated film to produce, not only because we had to source and integrate archival race footage, but also because we wanted original, museum quality funny cars and dragsters from private collections to appear in the film,” continues Robin Broidy, Chair of Entertainment Universe and the film’s producer.

Vehicles included in the film are the original Greer-Black-Prudomme dragster from car collector Bruce Meyer, the English Leather Corvette owned by Don Trasin, and the phenomenal collection of dragsters, funny cars and iconic haulers owned by Don Prodhomme himself – who oversaw their restoration to their original glory.

Snake and Mongoo$e opens nationwide September 6, and is rated PG-13.  The film is distributed nationally through Rocky Mountain Pictures.

Mars Hill Music is proud to announce the release of Grace Alone, the debut EP from THE MODERN POST, available today, August 14. Made up of worship leaders from the Mars Hill Orange County Church, THE MODERN POST has created a retro, synth-laden, bass-heavy sound that leads listeners to praise the creator with freedom and joy.

THE MODERN POST cites their name to the idea of how the Gospel is news to be declared, with content that is relevant and current regardless of what era one is living in.
“THE MODERN POST name is obviously a bit of a riff off of the term ‘postmodern’,” explains Deacon Dustin Kensrue. “But what I really like about it is the fact that “post” is associated with news, with an announcement. Whether it’s a letter delivered, a newspaper, or on the latest blog, the post is proclaiming something.
“As the church, we are the recipients of the greatest post of all time: the good news, the gospel of Jesus Christ. This news is for all people, at all times, both in and out of the church and is therefore always modern or current. Far from being something made obsolete by its antiquity, the gospel is the most timeless and timely of news—always. And as the church, we have the great joy of not only being recipients of this news, but its heralds as well.”
The musicians in THE MODERN POST come from extensive and diverse musical backgrounds. Frontman Deacon Dustin Kensrue, played with the acclaimed rock band THRICE for fourteen years, releasing eight albums and touring internationally. His testimony speaks of God breaking him of “intellectual hubris”, and coming to see God’s sovereignty in his salvation. The lyrics in both his previous musical endeavors and his worship songs communicate this, pointing people to the God who owes them his justice, yet gives them his grace.
Brothers Phil and Lee Neujahr comprise the rhythm section of THE MODERN POST, playing the bass and the drums, respectively. They both played music together for six years in Pacific Hurt, a band formerly known as Aushua. Jonny Sandu, the synth player, has played the piano since he was five. Classically trained, Jonny has performed internationally, and played in other bands and churches as well.
Dustin, and the other members of THE MODERN POST, appreciate the stylistic freedom that Mars Hill Music provides. The band’s sound was not one that was originally planned for. In Dustin’s words, “it happened”. Having the perspective that much worship music can be overly sentimental, they choose to push against that by creating music that is celebratory and upbeat. As a result, THE MODERN POST’s sound is one that bespeaks robust joy, and leads people to exult in the good news that Jesus is relevant for all generations.
THE MODERN POST E.P. Grace Alone, available today in select stores and at retail outlets online.

Runaway Slave

October 11, 2010 — Leave a comment

Brave New Documentary RUNAWAY SLAVE
Opens In Theaters Nationwide July 27.

Featuring Rev. C.L. Bryant and other African American Conservatives, RUNAWAY SLAVE questions if Entitlements are a new form of slavery.

From the creators of Tea Party: The Documentary Film, RUNAWAY SLAVE exposes the economic slavery of the black community to progressive, big government policies.

The film kicks off with a limited opening in Shreveport, LA beginning July 6 followed by a bus tour that visits influential cities along our country’s former Underground Railroad route. With distribution through Rocky Mountain Pictures, RUNAWAY SLAVE opens in theaters nationwide beginning July 27.

The film’s central figure is self-professed “runaway slave” Rev. C.L. Bryant. A former NAACP chapter president in Garland, TX, Rev. Bryant abandoned an organization he felt was more about political posturing, and less about civil rights. As a former Democratic Radical who escaped the bondage of Progressivism and denounced the shackles of entitlements, he has committed himself to helping others secure the blessings of liberty that are guaranteed by the Constitution with his newfound conservative values.

Rev. Bryant takes viewers on an historic journey across America that traces the footsteps of runaway slaves who escaped to freedom along routes that became known as the Underground Railroad. But in the film, he also travels a “new underground railroad” upon which Black Conservatives are speaking out against big government policies which have established a “new plantation” where “overseers” like the NAACP and so-called “civil rights” leaders keep the Black community 95 percent beholden to one political party.

RUNAWAY SLAVE’s heroes are black conservatives who are speaking out so that all Americans can truly be “free at last.” These “conductors” desire to liberate all Americans from the Government Plantation that has left the black community dealing with this new form of slavery.

Citing well-documented statistics that demonstrate increasingly high rates of abortion, crime, unemployment and single parent households in the black community, the film features interviews and commentary with politicians, pundits, authors and everyday Americans. Images from national events in Washington, D.C. provide a shocking look into the mindset of the liberal left as they seek to oppress black Americans in all aspects of daily life.

The documentary’s underlying theme asks the questions:

What does the black community have to show for its 95% support of the Democratic Party?

Is it truly “free at last?”

RUNAWAY SLAVE features interviews with a number of prominent conservatives in the movement, including controversial radio host Glenn Beck, author Deneen Borelli, the late commentator and author Andrew Breitbart, businessman and political commentator Stephen Broden, GOP Presidential Candidate Herman Cain, president of the Frederick Douglass Foundation of North Carolina Kevin Daniels, radio host and author Tony Katz, minister and author Alveda King, activist Star Parker, TV and radio host Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, humorist AlfonZo Rachel, author Marvin Rogers, columnist and author Erik Rush, comedian Sonja Schmidt, author and commentator K. Carl Smith, economist Thomas Sowell, radio host and author Mason Weaver, radio host David Webb, Congressman Allen West and writer Bill Whittle.

Rev.Bryant’s message? It’s time to run. “Run away from economic slavery. Run toward the blessings of liberty. Let us remain strong in this fight. Run away from socialism, run away from progressivism. And if you get tired, America…run harder!”

RUNAWAY SLAVE was created by Ground Floor Video in association with Freedom Works Foundation and Filmcrest Entertainment. Distribution is through Rocky Mountain Pictures. In theaters nationwide starting July 27, 2012.

How old is the earth?  Are the six days of Genesis to be taken literally or metaphorically?  Did God use evolution as a vehicle for Creation?
This summer, Fixed Point Foundation will tackle these issues head-on with In The Beginning: A Conference on the Days of Creation.
THREE VIEWS.  YOU DECIDE.
Birmingham, AL – Fixed Point Foundation, never to shy away from a great debate or a hot topic to discuss, has gathered three of the most respected and divided minds in a unique gathering discussing the beginning of it all. In the Beginning: A Conference on the Days of Creation, will challenge and engage the local Birmingham community to re-evaluate what you thought you knew about the issue.
The question of origin is as controversial inside the Church as it is outside of it. There is an intense debate among believers about how to interpret the Creation account of Genesis. This debate raises many practical questions: Does the Creation controversy cause doubts about other aspects of the Christian faith?  How should Christians explain the Genesis account to skeptics, who think it doesn’t agree with modern science?  How can Christian parents help their children navigate through this controversy without compromising their core beliefs or appearing intellectually naive?
June 15-18, these questions and many more will be debated by some of the top minds representing the three most prominent views of Creation within the Christian faith.  All three of these men are Christians, but they vehemently disagree about how to understand Genesis: Dr. Hugh Ross (Reasons to Believe) will present the Old Earth Creationist view; Dr. Terry Mortenson (Answers in Genesis) will speak on behalf of Young Earth Creationism; and Dr. Michael Behe (Discovery Institute) will represent the ID-Theistic Evolutionary view.
In addition, John Lennox (Professor at Oxford University), Gilbert Lennox (Pastor of Glenabbey Church in Belfast, Northern Ireland), and Rick Burgess (The Rick and Bubba Show) will also address this controversy and how they have handled it in their respective public positions.
We are also pleased to have Keith and Kristyn Getty, authors of “In Christ Alone”, who will lead worship and close the conference with a concert.
Join Fixed Point Foundation for this exciting conference where you get to decide the most compelling arguments for how to interpret the Genesis Creation account and why it matters.
In The Beginning: A Conference on the Days of Creation.
June 15th-18th, 2011
Hosted by Briarwood Presbyterian Church
Birmingham, Alabama
