Hillsong United documentary tweaks its Easter release date

Apparently it just occurred to someone involved with the upcoming Hillsong United concert movie that releasing a “faith-based” film on Good Friday — a day when many people are remembering the death of Jesus with solemn church services and the like — might not have been the wisest thing. Or maybe they’re just trying to get out of the path of Fast & Furious 7 and the Nicholas Sparks romance The Longest Ride, which are also set to come out that day. In any case, Deadline reports that the release date has been moved back from April 3 to April 1, i.e. the Wednesday before the Easter weekend. In this, the film is following in the footsteps of Heaven Is for Real, which was released on the Wednesday before Easter this year.
