American Epic Entertainment has scheduled a Nov. 4 limited release of the highly anticipated Christian film, “The Genesis Code".
The film premieres at theaters in Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri, and will feature the interplay between science and faith, as well as many other issues Christians’ face today.
Executive Producer and Star Actor Reverend Jerry Zandstra said: “This is a very exciting time to be a Christian who loves movies!”
The conservative activist is also the head of the Pro-Life Federation of Michigan, and continued, “There is clearly a real want and need for high quality faith based films like “The Genesis Code” and “Courageous.”
“Courageous” grossed an estimated $8.8 million in one weekend earlier this month, and has been one of the most successful faith-based films Hollywood as seen in a long time.
“We know that the faith audience expects production values that they are used to seeing from the big studio films, and that is what they can expect from ‘The Genesis Code’,” added Zandstra.
In the film, the age-old conflict about the beginning of the universe is confronted; the discrimination Christians often feel on college campuses is explored; and, issues surrounding death are brought to the forefront.
“The Genesis Code” carries a message that the Biblical and scientific explanations for life are totally consistent, but it is told from different perspectives.
Logan Bartholomew and Kelsey Sanders star in the film as college students who fall in love and begin a spiritual journey of discovery. Oscar winners Louise Fletcher and Ernest Borgnine make up the supporting cast, along with former presidential candidate Fred Thompson.
Leading up to the movie’s premiere, Thompson will lend his star power to help publicize “The Genesis Code.”
