This year, more than any other year, I have received a ton of incredible books, apps, DVD’s and movies to review for the Christmas season. If you’ve missed them, click on “Reviews” in the menu to see some of what is available. Just great, great, quality stuff. Today I am thrilled to give an advance look at a movie that will be released to theaters in February called “Son of God.” This film is the theatrical version of Roma Downey and Mark Burnett’s “THE BIBLE” series. Here’s more about the film:
Now, the larger-than-life story of The New Testament gets a larger-than life treatment in the stand-alone feature SON OF GOD. Told with the scope and scale of an action epic, the film features powerful performances, exotic locales, dazzling visual effects and a rich orchestral score from Oscar®-winner Hans Zimmer. Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado portrays Jesus as the film spans from his humble birth through his teachings, crucifixion and ultimate resurrection. It marks the first motion picture about Jesus’s life since Passion of the Christ, released ten years ago.
In addition to the film, I was sent a copy of the book “A Story of Christmas and All of Us”, special edition, full color book chronicling the journey of Mary and Joseph, the appearance of the shepherds, and the story of the wise men. It is absolutely stunning with images taken directly from the upcoming film. Here’s just a few (ignore the poor photography from my iPhone).
If you ignore the poor photography, this is a simply stunning companion book and perfect for this season. We will go through it as a family some time between now and Christmas Eve for sure. But the biggest thing I wanted to share in todays post is this trailer for the “Son of God” trailer. Mark you calendars for February and keep you eyes out for much more about this powerful film:
