Pure Flix has released a full six-minute trailer for “God’s Not Dead 2” ahead of the release date on Apr. 1, 2016 across the US.

Meanwhile, the Christian band Newboys has contributed a track called “Guilty” to the official soundtrack of “God’s Not Dead 2.” They will also have a cameo in the flick after making their debut in the original film.

Michael Tait, Newsboys frontman, said that “Guilty” aims to release a powerful message to the youth of today.

“‘Guilty’ is a song for all Christians, as we seek to honor God each day in every way, no matter the cost,” he said. “We pray it will help encourage and empower Believers-in our country and around the world-to live boldly for Him.”

‘Zootopia,’ meanwhile, gave Disney Animation its highest China debut ever, pulling in $23.5 million and earning rave local reviews.
Ip Man 3, the latest installment of the hit Hong Kong martial-arts franchise starring Donnie Yen, punched its way to a massive opening weekend in mainland China.

The fight flick, which was produced by Pegasus Motion Pictures and includes the stunt casting of Mike Tyson as a bone-crunching villain, grossed $71.5 million from Friday to Sunday, according to estimates from Beijing-based box-office monitor Ent Group.

The film’s high-flying rollout has been marred by widespread allegations of fraud, however.

Several major media outlets, including the state-backed China Daily, carried reports Monday alleging that Ip Man 3’s Chinese distributor, Dayinmu Film Distribution, orchestrated an audacious scheme to enhance the film’s perceived performance.

Toward the end of Lady Gaga’s impassioned performance of “Til It Happens to You,” her Oscar-nominated song about sexual assault, a curtain parted onstage, and dozens of grim-faced young men and women stepped forward. The group, all of them survivors of sexual assault, exposed their forearms to reveal such words and phrases as “Survivor,” “You Are Love,” “Unbreakable” and “Not Your Fault.”
