Watch: The trailer for Breakthrough, the new film from the producer of Miracles from Heaven and The Star December 6, 2018

True stories about children who come back from the brink of death are becoming a genre unto themselves. Four years ago we had Heaven is for Real — which remains the top-grossing “faith-based” movie of all time after The Passion of the Christ — and two years ago there was Miracles from Heaven. Now the producer of the latter film is back with Breakthrough, which tells the story of a teenager who drowned in a frozen river and appeared to die, until his mother prayed over his body at the hospital.

The film — which stars Chrissy Metz (This Is Us) as the mother, Josh Lucas as her husband and Topher Grace as their pastor — comes out in April, and it now has a trailer:

I had a chance to visit the set and interview some of the filmmakers earlier this year. I will be writing more about that in the near future. Stay tuned!
