The Christ Posers
We all know the indelible image of Jesus on the cross. His arms outstretched, his hands elevated higher than his shoulders. His legs crossed at the ankles, wrapped tightly in a straight line. His head tilted in repose. The image of Christ on the cross is a haunting, painful recollection of the horrors of His death and yet an awe inspiring reminder of His gracious gift to all how accept it.
At Golgotha, Jesus was offered in ultimate sacrifice for the sins of mankind. At that moment He exampled to each of us the ideals of sacrifice, duty and selfless love.
It shouldn’t be too surprising that film directors and producers constantly use this image of Christ for their own artistic and/or financial gain.

How do you sell a movie called “Captain America” to an overseas market? In South Korea, Russia and the Ukraine, apparently, the answer is you don’t even try.Makes complete sense. You see, people who aren't American are so unbelievably stupid that seeing the guy below just seems like your average yokel with no national identity. Heck, they can just translate his name to Evil Kinevel and the poor illiterate dopes won't even know.
The film “Captain America: The First Avenger” will have its title truncated to, simply, “The First Avenger” in those three overseas markets, according to Marvel Studios insiders. The choice was made by Marvel, Paramount Pictures’ international team and distributors in those three countries based on market research results. Those involved in the decision are being careful to frame the move as a matter of brand management and consumer awareness and not as a decision tilted by cultural or political winds.
