CULVER CITY, CA (June 1, 2021) – Sony Pictures’ AFFIRM Films and the Kendrick Brothers announce the release of the filmmakers’ first documentary, Kendrick Brothers’ SHOW ME THE FATHER, and the release of COURAGEOUS Legacy.
As their first documentary release, the Kendrick Brothers’ SHOW ME THE FATHER aims to surprise viewers with captivating stories interwoven with inspirational truths about the fatherhood of God. The Kendrick Brothers will once again take moviegoers on an incredible cinematic and emotional journey in this powerful film coming to theaters nationwide September 10, 2021.
“Everyone has a father story, but not everyone has learned how to redeem it for their own good and the good of others,” said executive producer Stephen Kendrick. “Even though fatherlessness is directly connected to so much brokenness in today’s world, we wanted to go beyond traditional documentaries and show how God is the perfect Father and can amazingly provide the love and healing to anyone at any stage in life.”
From Sherwood Pictures, Provident Films and Sony Pictures’ AFFIRM Films, COURAGEOUS Legacy releases in theaters nationwide October 15, 2021. COURAGEOUS Legacy is a remastered re-release of the Kendrick Brothers’ classic film that has been impacting fathers and families around the world since its initial release 10 years ago.
“In September 2011, COURAGEOUS was estimated to open at the box office with $1.5 million and it ended the weekend the #1 new movie, with $9.4 million in the first frame,” said Rich Peluso, EVP/Head of AFFIRM Films. “We are thrilled to bring this incredible story to theaters with new footage, as well as bring to the big screen the Kendrick Brothers’ first documentary.”
“We’re humbled and gratified that COURAGEOUS is continuing to make a global impact,” said director Alex Kendrick. “The Lord has been graciously using this film all over the world for a decade and we can’t wait to see how the film is received by a new generation of fathers and their families.”
Both movies are releasing in a cross-promotional effort and promise to leave audiences inspired and challenged.
