I just learned that WingClips, a website that specializes in film clips for sermons etc., has yanked four of the videos that they originally posted from The Young Messiah and replaced them with four new clips, to go with a new “family study guide”.
Watch: Four new clips from The Young Messiah, plus a clip from one of the bonus features coming to Blu-Ray tomorrow
The box office hasn’t been kind to The Young Messiah. The film had a much smaller opening than expected last week, and it looks like the second week will be much worse. Nevertheless, the job of promoting the film continues, and so the film’s official YouTube channel has posted a new “TV documentary” about the movie.
Chris Columbus wrote Gremlins and The Goonies and went on to direct such hit films as the first two Home Alone movies and the first two Harry Potter movies (he also produced the third). More recently, he has produced relatively low-budget films such as critically-acclaimed horror film The Witch and, now, The Young Messiah.
