Upcoming film I Can Only Imagine, based on the story of the popular worship song, has released an official trailer. The film will be released in US theatres on March 16th 2018.
The song I Can Only Imagine was released in 2001 and according to Deadline is the most-played song on Christian radio of all time. It is also the first Christian song to have ever reached double platinum status, having sold more than 2 million digital downloads, and boosted sales of the album to almost triple platinum status.
The film brings to life the true story behind the song of ultimate hope, “I Can Only Imagine.” A transformed relationship with his troubled father inspired Bart Millard, the lead singer of the Christian band MercyMe, to write what is now the most-played radio single in Christian music history. The story beautifully illustrates that nobody is ever too far from God’s love – or too far from an eternal home in Heaven.
The Erwin Brothers, Jon and Andrew are directing the film and are known for the faith based hit films Woodlawn, Moms’ Night Out and October Baby. Joining the Erwin Brothers are producers Kevin Downes and Daryl Lefever who also worked on Woodlawn and Moms’ Night Out.
“This is an extraordinary movie about the power of faith, love, family, and music,” said Roadside Attractions Co-Presidents and Co-Founders Howard Cohen and Eric d’Arbeloff. “The Erwins bring world-class storytelling and production values to faith-based films. It’s no surprise they have attracted such a phenomenal cast to their latest feature. We are thrilled to be bringing it to theatrical audiences nationwide.”
I Can Only Imagine features an all-star cast of Golden-Globe® nominee Dennis Quaid (The Day After Tomorrow, The Rookie, Soul Surfer), Oscar®-winner Cloris Leachman (The Iron Giant, The Last Picture Show, Young Frankenstein), platinum-selling country music legend Trace Adkins, author and actress Priscilla Shirer (War Room), Madeline Carroll (Mr. Poppers Penguins) and Broadway’s J. Michael Finley (“Les Miserables”).
