Breakthrough, the faith-based miracle story of John Smith starring Chrissy Metz, Josh Lucas, Topher Grace, Mike Colter, and Marcel Ruiz is releasing to home video outlets—on digital video July 2 and Blu-Ray and DVD July 16. The film received favorable reviews from even mainstream outlets and amassed a global box office of more than $40 million.
Soon after its release, producer DeVon Franklin (Miracles from Heaven, Heaven is for Real) told Reel Faith that the studio was happy with Breakthrough’s box office debut.
“Whenever you have a movie that grosses back its production budget during its opening weekend, you have to be happy with that,” he said.
As with other faith-based titles, Breakthrough should benefit and even find new audiences with its home video release. The Blu-Ray and DVD will include the following special features:
- A Tapestry of Miracles: Making Breakthrough
- “Carry My Soul” Phil Wickham Deleted Scene, and Optional Audio Commentary by DeVon Franklin and Roxann Dawson
- Trapped in Icy Waters
- Audio Commentary by DeVon Franklin and Roxann Dawson
