PRLog (Press Release) – Jul. 20, 2013 – LOS ANGELES, Calif. — July 22, 2013 – In what is becoming the most ‘scariest Christian movie of the decade’, the movie, ‘Final:
The film is slated to open in select theaters throughout the U.S. starting in September 2013 starting in Houston and then on to LA, NY, Portland, Seattle, San Antonio, Nashville, and other cities.
“It was one of the best received films I’ve done,” says director Tim Chey. “A lot of people told me later they cried at several scenes.”
The film premiered to a standing-room only crowd at the new LA Live theater in downtown Los Angeles. The packed theater cheered in the end.
“Somebody dropped a water bottle,” said one pastor who saw the film, “and it sounded like a canon went off”.
Another viewer commented, “I thought the Rapture was coming right then.”
‘Final: The Rapture’ was filmed in six countries and took almost five months of shooting.
Breathtaking, gripping, layered, and astonishing, Final: The Rapture is a gritty, international tale of four separate stories woven together by a common theme: the Rapture.
In Los Angeles, Colin Nelson desperately attempts to flee to Bora Bora. Keenly aware that he’s in the Tribulation period, his only hope is in a mysterious man. In Tokyo, a journalist, Masashi, tries to unravel the disappearance of millions of people as the government closes in on him. In Buenos Aires, Marie searches for her final relative as time runs out. And on a deserted island in the South Pacific, Tom Wiseman, an avowed atheist, attempts to be rescued after his plane goes down.
A team of us are currently in Dayton and Columbus, Ohio where we’re releasing our latest film, ‘Live Fast, Die Young’.
The people of Ohio are terrific – I spoke at several Bible study groups and churches here.
This morning I was on the radio with my good friend Judah, an evangelist, and we discussed how often we’re persecuted for doing the most simple things – like even handing out tracts or postcards with a Gospel message.
But there’s real unity and brotherhood in Christ in Ohio. People are real and they’re rock solid in their faith.
God bless everyone here.
This past weekend, ‘The Genius Club’ (‘Duela De Genios’) was the #2 independent film in Mexico City (Sept 21-23) and #5 overall (out of 40 movies). Only ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’, ‘Resident Evil’, and ‘Underdog’ beat us. We were in the 16 biggest theaters throughout Mexico City (Population: 22 million).
It caught our distributor, Cien Films, completely off guard.
The toughest film critics gave our film a thumbs up, with Milenio newspaper giving ‘The Genius Club’ 4.5 out of 5 stars. This is the same paper that has done no-holds bar critiques on Alfonso Cuarón (“The Children of Men”), Alejandro Iñárritu (“Babel”), and Guillermo del Toro’s (Pan Labyrtinth) movies.
The best part was the director, Tim Chey, being able to tell the reporters that the world’s problems ARE solvable and how God changed Mr. Chey’s life – it was phenomenal to say the least. We were featured in the largest newspapers, national TV, and even Rolling Stone. They told us they never saw a movie that discussed God intellectually.
At the screenings, people were seen literally weeping as they came out. It was infectious. Countless people approached us after our screenings to say how they cried and how much the film made them think about their lives, death, and God.
We’ve attached some press photos of our screenings, etc.
May the Lord bless each of you mightily as he has us!
