The first 48 hours of any movie is the most important. Today, Unplanned (a movie based on a true story about Abby Johnson, the youngest director ever at Planned Parenthood) is opening in theaters. You will not see posters advertising this movie in any theater, but they do have times listed on their websites. Will you please go see this movie to [hopefully] put this in the top 3 this weekend? If you’ve read the book, if you’re pro-life, if you’re pro-choice, if you don’t have an opinion – it doesn’t matter. Every person should see this movie.

Paul, Apostle of Christ – Coming to Theaters March 23rd, 2018

ABOUT THE FILM

PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST is the story of two men. Luke, as a friend and physician, risks his life when he ventures into the city of Rome to visit Paul. Paul is a captive in Nero’s darkest, bleakest prison cell. But Nero is determined to rid Rome of Christians. He does not flinch from executing them in the grisliest ways possible. Before Paul is put to death, Luke resolves to write another book. One that details the beginnings of “The Way” and the birth of what will come to be known as the church.

Bound in chains, Paul’s struggle is internal. He is a survivor of so much—floggings, shipwreck, starvation, stoning, hunger and thirst, cold and exposure. Yet as he waits for his appointment with death, the shadows of his past misdeeds haunt him. Alone in the dark, he wonders if he has been forgotten. And if he has the strength to finish well.

Two men struggle against an evil emperor and the frailties of the human spirit. They do so in order to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ and spread their message to the world.
