LOS ANGELES (TBD) –ARC Entertainment and Mpower Pictures will release the heartwarming family comedy SNOWMEN to DVD nationwide on November 29, 2011. The film is sure to be a holiday favorite with stars like Bobby Coleman (The Last Song, Martian Child), Ray Liotta (Wild Hogs), Bobb’e J. Thompson (Role Models), Josh Flitter (Ace Ventura Jr.) and Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future 1-3, Who Framed Roger Rabbit).
Recently judged “Family-Approved” by the prestigious International Dove Foundation, SNOWMEN received rave reviews and is currently a featured promotion on the foundation’s website (www.dove.org). The film also received the Parents Television Council seal of approval.
Premiering in select theaters nationwide in October 2011, SNOWMEN was deemed the “Family Movie Event of the Year” and continues to build a lasting legacy with the DVD release.
“It has been wonderful – and rewarding – to hear the many stories of families who have seen the movie and then engaged in meaningful conversations with their children,” said Mpower Pictures CEO, Stephen McEveety (The Passion of The Christ, Braveheart). “The beauty of this film is that it speaks to people in all different stages of life, most notably with Christopher Lloyd’s powerful and timeless quote, ‘When people talk about someone living a good life, it’s not what they did that matters so much as how they did it.’”
SNOWMEN is a humorous and heartfelt coming-of-age story about three unlikely heroes and the winter that changed their lives forever. After a surprising discovery in the snow catapults three small-town boys into the spotlight, the best friends hatch a plan to be remembered forever by setting a Guinness World Records® title. Along the way, the trio battles schoolyard bullies, unites their community and discovers that – while fame may be fleeting – true friendship lasts forever.
SNOWMEN won the Audience Award at the 2011 Dallas International Film Festival, was named Best Feature Film at the 2011 SPROCKETS Toronto International Film Festival for Children and Youth, won the Heartland Film Festival’s Truly Moving Picture Award, and won the First Runner -Up Audience Award at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Pre-orders for the SNOWMEN DVD can be purchased online through Walmart and Amazon.
