How Hollywood Embraces the Holy

The 2010 Academy Awards featured a bumper crop of 2009 films built around spiritual and religious themes. In 2007, a range of movies adapted comic book superheroes for the silver screen, many of which reflected traditional American religious archetypes and values in nontraditional settings; they proved popular among young people. The Religion Newswriters Association has provided religion writers and others an opportunity to explore the place of religion in film through a set of 2010 resources titled “Faith and Film: Hollywood Goes To The Oscars,” archived on RNA’s sister site, ReligionLink. Perspectives on the religious message and impact of comic book-based movies can be found in the 2007 resource, “Superheroes and spirituality.” For additional links to RNA resources on religion and the movies, explore the 2006 summary, “Gospel of Dollars: Is Hollywood Becoming HolyWood?
