All-New Film in Hugely Successful Franchise Lands in Theaters

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona (March 30)–PURE FLIX, the leading independent faith and family film studio, releases GOD’S NOT DEAD: A LIGHT IN DARKNESS, in theaters today, Friday, March 30, 2018.
Filmed on location in Little Rock, Arkansas, GOD’S NOT DEAD: A LIGHT IN DARKNESS stars David A.R. White (GOD’S NOT DEAD), Emmy Award® and Golden Globe® nominee John Corbett (MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING), Shane Harper (GOD’S NOT DEAD), Ted McGinley (Married with Children), Jennifer Taylor (Two and a Half Men), and Academy Award® winner Tatum O’Neal (PAPER MOON).
Additional cast includes Emmy Award® winner Gregory Alan Williams, Mike C. Manning, Samantha Boscarino, rap artist Shwayze, Jennifer Cipolla, and music legend Dr. Cissy Houston. Reprising their roles from GOD’S NOT DEAD are actors Shane Harper (“Josh”) and Benjamin Onyango (“Reverend Jude”).
GOD’S NOT DEAD: A LIGHT IN DARKNESS is an inspirational drama that centers on Pastor Dave (David A.R. White) and the unimaginable tragedy he endures when his church, located on the grounds of the local university, is burned down.
But his dreams of rebuilding the church face an unexpected setback when university officials reject his plans to rebuild, determining that the church is no longer relevant in today’s society.
Trusting in the motto that he has lived by that “God is good all the time,” Pastor Dave enlists the legal help of his estranged brother Pearce (John Corbett), who is an attorney but also an atheist.
As they partner together for a united cause, the brothers come to understand that not every victory requires defeating the opposition, and there is a greater win when you heal and rebuild with compassion and respect for others.
“Audiences have continued to show support and interest in the GOD’S NOT DEAD films and their relatable characters who endure similar challenges in their personal faith and lives,” says Michael Scott, Pure Flix founding partner. “Our hope is that these films offer entertainment and encouragement, with a starting point for sharing faith in a respectable and compassionate manner.”

Presented by Fathom Events and Bryton Entertainment, This Event Pays Tribute to America’s First African-American Fighter Pilots from World War II

(New York, NY)
— Fathom Events is partnering with Bryton Entertainment to present “In Their Own Words: The Tuskegee Airmen – The 75th Anniversary” in select U.S. cinemas for the first time ever on Tuesday, March 29, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. local time. This one-night cinema event features emotional interviews, rare photographs, archival footage and computer-generated recreations. Audiences will also experience an exclusive panel discussion captured at the National Air Force Museum with Tuskegee Airman Lt. Col. George Hardy, Former Administrator of NASA Col. Fred Gregory, as well as the executive producer Bryan Williams and director Denton Adkinson.

Tickets for “In Their Own Words: The Tuskegee Airmen – The 75th Anniversary” can be purchased online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in nearly 200 movie theaters through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network. For a complete list of theater locations visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

Sixteen of the Tuskegee Airmen, America’s first African-American military aviators who flew the skies of the European Theater during World War II, are featured in this powerful event. As African Americans were rejected in their attempts to enlist in World War I, the recruitment, training and combat of the Tuskegee Airmen in World War II was a monumental moment not only in American military history, but also in American history as a whole. “In Their Own Words: The Tuskegee Airmen – The 75th Anniversary” tells the story of how these airmen were some of the first to begin the civil rights movement and have lived long enough to see the changes that continue to resonate today.

“Fathom is extremely excited to be working with Bryton Entertainment on this powerful event that honors the Tuskegee Airmen. 2016 marks the 75th anniversary of these amazing fighters and there is no better way to celebrate these men than a documentary and panel discussion,” said Fathom Events CEO John Rubey.

“The enthusiasm in which the few remaining Tuskegee Airmen reacted to this news has been nothing short of fulfilling. These brave men made one request of us upon lending their story, ‘Never let our story die!’ We are thrilled to honor that request with Fathom Events on March 29, when this event hits theaters around the country,” said Bryan Williams of Bryton Entertainment, LLC.

Civil War Film “Union Bound” Gets New Release Date

Originally scheduled to hit theaters nationwide on February 12th, “Union Bound” has been pushed back to April 22nd to accommodate more theaters following early screening buzz.



(LOS ANGELES, CA)
— The release date for Civil War film Union Bound has been pushed back to April 22nd following positive buzz generated from early screenings. The inspiring film from Uptone Pictures, Moving Box Entertainment and Weathervane Productions and distributed by Hannover House/Medallion Releasing/Universal, is based on the actual diaries of Joseph Hoover, an unlikely survivor of the Underground Railroad.

Union Bound stars Sean Stone (son of famed director Oliver Stone) as real life soldier Joseph Hoover, who receives the help of freed slaves on his journey back to the Union. Directed by Harvey Lowry, Union Bound stars Sean Stone (JFK, Nixon, The Doors), Tank Jones (The Deadliest Gun, Breaking Bad), Randy Wayne (To Save a Life; The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning), Trish Cook (Dude, Where’s My Dog?), Issac C. Singleton (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl) and Christian Fortune (New Years Eve). Drew Seeley (High School Musical) also makes a cameo and Wynonna Judd’s husband Cactus Moser (Wynonna & the Big Noise; Highway 101) recorded the theme song and makes an appearance as a wounded soldier.

“This is an amazing true story, more than 150 years in the making,” said producer Michael Davis. “At a time when there is so much racial division, Union Bound tells the story of three men of different races, different backgrounds and different perspectives, united by a common purpose and fighting together for freedom.”

A companion book (WND Books, ISBN: 9781944229252, Paperback, $16.95, 5.5 x 8.25, 272 pages) will be in stores on May 2, 2016.

Yancy Releases Promotional Video for Little Praise Party: Taste and See – Available on CD and DVD February 10th



Video features testimonies from parents, pastors and recording artist Jaci Velasquez

(NASHVILLE, Tennessee) — In anticipation of the February 10th release of Little Praise Party: Taste and See, Yancy has released a new promotional video, including testimonies from parents, pastors and recording artist Jaci Velasquez. View the video here: http://youtu.be/aJ4iiG1LRRk.

“Little Praise Party started as a collection of songs for my local church to use,” says Yancy. “It’s been amazing to see how God has used those songs in churches and homes around the world.”

Taste and See, the fourth release in the popular worship music series for young children, will be available on CD and DVD, featuring 15 easy-to-sing songs (plus two bonus tracks exclusively available at iTunes). The Little Praise Party series is available online and in Christian bookstores everywhere via Elevate Entertainment and Syntax Distribution. For church and classroom use, there is also a Church DVD available that includes all 15 songs plus the soundtracks, mp4 files and a group viewing license.

“Hearing children sing God’s praises never gets old,” says Yancy. “And it gives me chills hearing their sweet little voices sing their love to the Lord. Music is a powerful thing. It’s an important tool that we have to use in our homes and churches to plant Biblical truth in the hearts of kids. It’s the very reason we started making Little Praise Party music.”

Yancy’s Little Praise Party series engages kids from the very start with non-stop sing-along fun for the entire family. In addition to CDs, each project in the series has a companion DVD filled with exciting animation with on-screen lyrics to help visualize the words and stories portrayed within the songs. The popular Little Praise Party app, available in both iOS & Android formats, features new videos each month in English and Spanish.

“I introduced my kids to Little Praise Party, from Yancy, and it’s really adorable listening to them sing their songs,” said recording artist Jaci Velasquez. “As a mom, my hope and my prayer is that everything that I’m putting into my kids is positive and good and encouraging and hopeful. Because whatever goes in, comes out.”

“We need to begin the process of passing on our faith and Christian values to our children at an early age,” says Yancy. “We really can’t start too soon. My heart and prayer is that this generation would Taste and See that the Lord is good.”

For more than a decade, Yancy has been making music for Christian music fans of all ages. As a songwriter, she has penned songs with Third Day frontman Mac Powell, wrote the Jaci Velasquez hit “Something Beautiful” and Avalon’s chart-topping “I Don’t Want To Go.” As an artist, Yancy has released radio-friendly pop/rock albums and multiple projects for kids and young adults, while sharing the stage with Michael W. Smith, Newsboys, Plumb and many more. Yancy also pens a monthly column for KidzMatter Magazine, and has written and produced the music and videos for Standard Publishing’s Vacation Bible School curriculum since 2012, reaching over 1,000,000 kids each year.

Daily Audio Bible Invites You to Experience Israel in Vivid Clarity with PROMISED LAND on Blu-ray and DVD

Daily Audio Bible Invites You to Experience Israel in Vivid Clarity with PROMISED LAND on Blu-ray and DVD

Groundbreaking HD Tour of Israel Features Some of the Only Holy Land Aerial Drone Footage Ever Filmed

(NASHVILLE, Tennessee) — Whether you’ve been to the land of the Bible or always wanted to go, you’ve never experienced it like this before. Three years in the making, Daily Audio Bible is proud to present “Promised Land” – a feature-length cinematic achievement and a sweeping masterpiece. For a limited time, “Promised Land” is available on Blu-ray and DVD exclusively at DailyAudioBible.com, and each order comes with a free soundtrack CD while supplies last.

See the places you’ve imagined and read about in Scripture filmed in vivid high definition from angles never seen before. “Promised Land” immerses you in the stories of the Bible, where they happened, as author and leader of the Daily Audio Bible, Brian Hardin, takes you from the wilderness to the Galilee and out onto the coastal plain before entering the most holy city in the world…Jerusalem. The history and geography of the Bible will come alive as the Scriptures unfold before your eyes.

Says Hardin, “The Biblical locations in Israel have been filmed plenty of times but when we set out to create this project, we didn’t just want to document it – that’s been done. We wanted to capture its beauty and the way it feels to be there. ‘Promised Land’ connects the history and stories to the places where they happened in short, concise vignettes allowing people who might never consider visiting Israel to truly see the beauty of this rich, historic place.”

Tom Doyle, e3 Partners’ Middle East Director and author of the Thomas Nelson best-seller, “Dreams and Visions,” (who has led over 70 trips to Israel) endorsed “Promised Land” following an advance screening: “I must say that I was pretty overwhelmed to see the quality of ‘Promised Land.’ It made me feel like the first time that I journeyed to Israel. After the first two minutes I sat back in my chair and said out loud, ‘They got it! They understand the miracle of Israel. They got it!'”

With over 1.5 million listens monthly and over 70 million downloads, Daily Audio Bible (www.dailyaudiobible.com) is one of the most-listened-to podcasts in the world. Created by Hardin in 2006, Daily Audio Bible is one of the world wide web’s biggest success stories.
