The filmmakers of "I Can Only Imagine" have released the official movie poster and announced its release date.

The Christian Post was given the exclusive art poster reveal for the upcoming film based on contemporary Christian band MercyMe's 1999 hit song, "I Can Only Imagine." With the poster, The Erwin Brothers and Lionsgate announced the official release date of March 16, 2018.

The Christian song sold over 2 million digital downloads and was certified almost 3x platinum. The crossover hit went on to be the "most played Christian radio single in history." Now, almost a decade later, the film will tell the story behind the tune.

The movie poster features a photo of Dennis Quaid and a child actor walking inside of another photo, the outline profile of lead actor Michael Finley. Above the photo reads: "The song you know, the story you didn't."

The artwork also shows some of the song's lyrics, "Will I stand in your presence/ To my knees will I fall/ Will I sing hallelujah/ Will I be able to speak at all."
