Kendrick Brothers’ WAR ROOM Hits Theaters This Summer
Sony Pictures Entertainment has set the release date for WAR ROOM, the next Christian movie by Alex and Stephen Kendrick (FIREPROOF, COURAGEOUS) – Aug. 28.
WAR ROOM focuses on the powerful, all-important topic of prayer. It tells the story of Tony and Elizabeth Jordan, a couple that, from all appearances, is living the American Dream. Behind their pristine façade of a flawless home, great jobs and comfortable lifestyle, their marriage has become a battleground, and their daughter finds herself caught in the crossfire. Through the wisdom of Miss Clara, Elizabeth learns she must stop fighting against her family and begin fighting for them by wielding the unrivaled weapon of prayer.
Rated PG, WAR ROOM is a family-friendly movie that delves into the divinely ordained ways in which prayer can transform even the bleakest, darkest situations into glimmering horizons filled with unearthly hope, the kind of hope that flows from the Lord.
“We made this film to inspire, challenge, and motivate viewers to fight the right kind of battles and to fight the right kind of battles and to fight them the best way possible,” said Alex Kendrick, the movie’s director and co-writer.
WAR ROOM is the first movie the Kendrick brothers have produced independently of Sherwood Pictures, the successful filmmaking ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. The cast includes New York Times bestselling author and Bible teacher Priscilla Shirer in her movie debut. Also featured are Alex Kendrick (MOMS NIGHT OUT, COURAGEOUS), T.C. Stallings (COURAGEOUS), and comedian Michael Jr. Renowned Bible teacher Beth Moore makes a cameo in her first acting role.
“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,” said Rory Bruer, President, Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures, which will release the movie. “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.”
