Sony’s Tristar Pictures has slotted faith-based drama War Room, the fifth film from Alex and Stephen Kendrick (Fireproof, Courageous) for an August 28 premiere. The film follows Tony and Elizabeth Jordan, a middle-class couple who seemingly have it all – great jobs, a beautiful daughter, their dream home. But appearances can be deceiving. In reality, the Jordan’s marriage has become a war zone and their daughter is collateral damage. With the help of Miss Clara, an older, wiser woman, Elizabeth discovers she can start fighting for her family instead of against them. Through a newly energized faith, Elizabeth and Tony’s real enemy doesn’t have a prayer.
The film features New York Times bestselling author and Bible teacher Priscilla Shirer in her film debut. Alex Kendrick also appears in the film, along with T.C. Stallings (Courageous), comedian Michael Jr., and newcomers Karen Abercrombie and Alena Pitts.

“War Room is the ideal addition to our August slate, following in the footsteps of last year’s hit, Heaven is For Real, which had a $12 million budget and grossed more than $100 million,” said Rory Bruer, President, Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures. “We are pleased to be distributing the Kendrick Brothers’ next film, which will be the perfect programming for families seeking a wholesome and inspiring Summer movie.”
War Room is directed by Alex Kendrick and produced by Stephen Kendrick and Gary Wheeler. AFFIRM Films and Provident Films partnered with the Kendricks on the film.
