I STILL BELIEVE Heads to Video on Demand Thanks to Coronavirus
By Allyson Vannatta, Staff Writer
Lionsgate and Kingdom Story Company will make I STILL BELIEVE available on VOD today.
This news comes as no surprise as theaters across the country have closed because of the Coronavirus.
Joe Drake, chairman of the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, released a statement that read,
“With theaters closed nationwide due to these unprecedented events, we want to continue to make I Still Believe available to consumers. The theatrical experience is core to our business, and exhibitors are our integral partners and allies. We’re enormously proud of the movie that the Erwin Brothers created and are grateful to be able to share it with audiences for their home viewing pleasure.”
Directors Jon and Andy Erwin also commented saying,
“As filmmakers, we are heartbroken that we can’t share I Still Believe on a big screen the way we intended. We make movies because we love movies and we stand firmly behind the nation’s theater chains, from the largest circuits to the smallest mom and pop indies that have been so dramatically affected by these unprecedented closures. But the safety of guests comes first, and we’re proud to have the opportunity to share online a movie whose inspiring message of love, hope and faith is perfect for these uncertain times.”
