A group of Academy Award winners and nominees headline the latest major motion pictures from Pure Flix, the No. 1 independent faith film studio.

Releasing to theaters on April 7th is the true-life drama, The Case for Christ, by former atheist turned NYT bestselling author and pastor, Lee Strobel.

It’s the early ’80s and Strobel (Mike Vogel) is an award-winning investigative reporter at the Chicago Tribune whose wife, Leslie, (Erika Christensen) has discovered the Christian faith. Their religious differences begin to take a toll on their marriage.

Utilizing his journalistic and legal training, Lee begins a quest to debunk the claims of Christianity. Ultimately, Lee comes face-to-face with unexpected results that could change everything he knows to be true. The film features Academy AwardÒ winner Faye Dunaway, and Academy Award nominee Robert Forster. Info available www.TheCaseforChristmovie.com

Pure Flix, in partnership with Paramount Pictures, will release Same Kind of Different As Me on October 20th, based on the NYT best-selling true story. Debbie (Academy Award winner Renée Zellweger) and her husband Ron (Academy Award nominee Greg Kinnear) recommit to their marriage in the most unlikely of places – a homeless shelter. But it’s really meeting the homeless man Denver (Academy Award nominee Djimon Hounsou) which changes all three of their lives forever. Academy Award winner Jon Voight also stars.

In April, Pure Flix began filming the biblical epic Samson in South Africa, a dramatic adaptation of a man with supernatural strength who leads his enslaved tribe to victory over the mighty Philistine empire. The film stars Jackson Rathbone, Rutger Hauer, Billy Zane, Lindsay Wagner, Caitlin Leahy and Taylor James as Samson and coming soon to theaters.

“We’re thrilled to bring audiences quality and diversity in our upcoming projects,” notes Pure Flix CEO and co-founder Michael Scott. “The vision of Pure Flix is to influence the global culture for Christ through media– that’s what we are recognized for and what we will continue to pursue.
