Pure Flix has released the first trailer for The Case For Christ, which will bow in theaters April 7. The film follows the true story of an investigative journalist and atheist who applied his well-honed journalistic and legal skills to disprove the newfound Christian faith of his wife. Mike Vogel (The Help, Poseidon), Erika Christensen, Robert Forster and Faye Dunaway star.
The filmmakers behind The Case For Christ are also some of the team from God’s Not Dead (specifically producers Michael Scott and Pure Flix’s David A.R. White). That faith-based film surprised everyone when it was released two years ago on a budget of $2 million and ended up grossing $62.6M worldwide, then spawned a sequel.
Pure Flix has released other faith-based films including Woodlawn which received a rare A+ CinemaScore and just recently picked up for release Same Kind Of Different As Me from Paramount. That one stars Greg Kinnear, Renee Zellweger, Djimon Housou and Jon Voight and will be released October 20.
The Case For Christ was adapted from the Lee Strobel book by Brian Bird. It was directed by Jon Gunn and, besides Scott and White, was produced by Bird, David de Vos, Karl Horstmann and Brittany Lefebvre.
