Christians hope to take Hollywood by storm
This weekend marks the release of two star-studded films that affirm faith and religious liberty – movies an army of “theater captains” is hoping will change the face of not only Hollywood, but America itself.
More than 1,200 theater captains around the country have signed up with an organization called Movie to Movement to advertise, promote and recruit ticket buyers to see films that affirm faith and conservative values, movies like this weekend’s new releases, “Hardflip” and “For Greater Glory.”
“Hardflip” is a movie aimed at teens and young adults, starring John Schneider (of “October Baby”) and Randy Wayne (of “To Save a Life”) and featuring some of the best skateboarders in the world, including Brian Sumner and Christian Hosoi.
Skating legend Tony Hawk has said Hosoi may be the best skater alive, and sources close to “Hardflip” tell WND that both Hosoi and Sumner are using this film to “talk to youth about how the gospel has changed them and is more important than anything in their lives, even skating.”
“If you liked the message from ‘To Save a Life,’ you will love ‘Hardflip,’” says star Randy Wayne in a video thank you to those working to promote the film. “It has the same faith-based element, it deals with real-life issues. This movie will make a difference in your family and your personal lives.”
John Schneider adds in his own video, “This film shares the gospel in a very, very powerful and relevant way.”Continue reading at www.wnd.com
