Kendrick brothers say God has done more than they could have imagined with their award-winning Christian film, Overcomer.
The film is being released on Blu-ray and DVD on November 26, for the holidays. Stephen Kendrick says to the Christian Post that God has blessed the movie, especially over the last few months.
God has exceeded their expectations and goals. They prayed the movie would open in 1,700 theatres and it was shown in over 24 countries totaling 1,723 theatres. The uplifting faith and forgiveness story also received one of the highest ratings ever on Rotten Tomatoes with a 98% rating from the audience.
The positive response has been recorded worldwide. The movie is inspiring new testimonies, roaring laughter, tears, and restoring the faith of many attendees according to Stephen Kendrick. The brothers are also breaking new ground. For the first time, one of their films is opening in India. They say it's all because of God's power and give Him all the glory.
Churches are also using this film as a ministry tool. "We are sincerely grateful to the body of Christ for utilizing Overcomer to reach their communities and minister to families for Christ," a pastor says to CP.
Stephen Kendrick anticipates an increase in viewership around US Thanksgiving and the Christmas season due to the new release. Viewers will gain access to deleted scenes, commentary from the brothers, and other bonus material in the Blu-ray, DVD, and digital release of the movie.
