War Room opens August 28th at a Theater Near You

CULVER CITY, Calif., Feb. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — War Room, the highly-anticipated fifth film from Alex and Stephen Kendrick(Fireproof, Courageous, Facing the Giants, Flywheel) will debut in theaters nationwide on August 28, 2015. Sony Pictures Entertainment’s TriStar Pictures, distributor of Soul Surfer, Courageous and last summer’s faith-based sensation Heaven is For Real, will release the film, which is rated PG, perfectly positioning it to entertain families of all ages.

The family-friendly movie explores the transformational role prayer plays in the lives of the Jordan family.  “We made this film to inspire, challenge and motivate viewers to fight the right kind of battles and to fight them the best way possible,” said Director and Co-Writer Alex Kendrick.

Filled with heart, wit & humor, War Room follows Tony and Elizabeth Jordan, a middle-class couple who seemingly have it all – great jobs, a beautiful daughter, their dream home. But appearances can be deceiving. In reality, the Jordan’s marriage has become a war zone and their daughter is collateral damage. With the help of Miss Clara, an older, wiser woman, Elizabeth discovers she can start fighting for her family instead of against them. Through a newly energized faith, Elizabeth and Tony’s real enemy doesn’t have a prayer.

The film features New York Times best-selling author and Bible teacher Priscilla Shirer in her film debut. The cast also includes director Alex Kendrick (Moms’ Night Out, Courageous), T.C. Stallings (Courageous), and comedian Michael Jr. War Room introduces film newcomers Karen Abercrombie as Miss Clara and Alena Pitts as Danielle, and features a cameo by renowned speaker Beth Moore in her first acting role.

War Room is the ideal addition to our August slate, following in the footsteps of last year’s hit, Heaven is For Real, which had a $12 million budget and grossed more than $100 million,” said Rory Bruer, President, Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures. “We are pleased to be distributing the Kendrick Brothers’ next film, which will be the perfect programming for families seeking a wholesome and inspiring Summer movie.”

War Room is directed by Alex Kendrick and produced by Stephen Kendrick and Gary Wheeler.  Written by Alex & Stephen Kendrick,War Room was filmed in and around Charlotte, N.C.

AFFIRM Films and Provident Films partnered with the Kendricks on the film.

Justice for Freddie Gray or more Facetime on Primetime?

Something bad happened to Freddie Gray as he was being transported by the Baltimore police to the station. The mayor and the police chief have assured the city that they will find out what happened to Mr. Gray. The Department of Justice has also opened up an investigation. Baltimore is not Ferguson. In Ferguson we watched a blame the victim mentality at work. The police demonized Michael Brown prior to even learning the name of the policeman who killed Brown. The Baltimore reaction has been totally different. Police brutality is a fact of life in Charm City, but this high profile case does not seem to be on the slow track to nowhere, but last night we saw over 1000 people march demanding justice, but justice is a process and it looks like in this case the process is working so it makes you wonder what is the goal here? The chant is “What do we want? and the response is “Justice”, but is that what everyone wants? Some of the people seem to want more face time on prime time. This is the kind of case that not only draws local attention, but the network is here and they are looking for voices to elevate and there are people here who are ready for their close up, but will their face time do anything to answer the real question, “what happened to Freddie Gray?”

Freddie Gray looked at the police, and ran from them and now he is dead…why?

Every time I hear a reporter talk about Freddie Gray’s death I am struck by his crime. He made eye contact with the police and ran from them. So they arrested him and something happened on the way to the precinct, and now the police are mum. No one knows anything, but the police want to tell us about Gray’s background. Gray had an arrest record, but did the police know about his record when they started their pursuit? When did we require that the victim have a perfect record? Is your victimhood denied by virtue of a previous bad act? It will be interesting to see what happens with this case, but with 6 policeman involved will anyone break the blue line, and tell us what actually happened or will the city simply settle another case of excessive force.

How did Freddy Gray die?

The police made eye contact with Freddy Gray and he ran. Apparently running is enough to warrant arrest in Baltimore. He was taken in custody 8 days ago and he died yesterday. He was only 25 years old and no one knows how he died. He had crushed voicebox and a broken back and the police have no answers. There is no tape to show what the police did or did not do on the way to the precinct. The mayor and her police chief just held a press conference and they said a lot but really answered nothing. They are investigating and they should have more for us by May 1st. So what did they accomplish today. it was a PR effort. They wanted to show the volatile community that they care and they are looking for answers. Hopefully that will be enough for now.

Why did Matt Lauer call Tim Tebow “polarizing”?

Tim Tebow is headed back to the NFL. Tebow is an unabashed Christian. This morning Matt Lauer described him as polarizing. So what makes him polarizing. His exuberance for Christ? His stand on abortion or same sex marriage? The Today Show features all kinds of people with all kinds of points of view, but Tebow is polarizing?
