The recent blockbuster hit "War Room," about the power of prayer, was made for less than $4 million and has grossed nearly $70 million at the box office. On the heels of its release to DVD Dec. 22, The Christian Post caught up with the film's creators, the Kendrick brothers, to discuss the impact the movie made and the future of Christian films.
