‘Courageous’ Expanding to 48 New Cities

NASHVILLE – Oct. 13, 2011 – COURAGEOUS—the current release from the makers of FIREPROOF and on track to top that surprise hit at the box office—expands to 48 new cities this weekend. COURAGEOUS remains a top 10 film in the weeks after its Sept. 30 premiere, after opening on 1,200 screens, compared to the 3,000 locations typical for a film in wide release.

“Of course we’re humbled and gratified by the reception for COURAGEOUS,” Executive Producer and Sherwood Baptist Church Senior Pastor Michael Catt said. “But what really excites us is the chance to reach more people with the film’s vital message on families and fathering. As COURAGEOUS expands to new cities, we’re thankful for the opportunity to do that.”

A Sherwood Pictures production, COURAGEOUS is distributed by TriStar Pictures with marketing by Provident Films and AFFIRM Films. COURAGEOUS tells the story of four men with one calling: To serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, they are confident and focused, standing up to the worst the streets have to offer. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood.

When tragedy strikes home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, their faith, and their fathering. Can a newfound urgency help these dads draw closer to God . . . and to their children? Protecting the streets is second nature. Raising their children in a God-honoring way? That takes courage.

COURAGEOUS comes from Sherwood Pictures, the movie-making ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church that also made FIREPROOF, the No. 1 independent film of 2008.  FIREPROOF was a difference-making movie about restoring damaged marriages with faith and sacrificial love. COURAGEOUS aims for a similar positive impact on fathering and families. Statistics show children from fatherless homes are more likely to have health problems, underperform in school, face drug and alcohol issues, and become involved in crime.

Tickets are available now on CourageoustheMovie.com; Fandango, Movie Fone, MovieTickets, and other online sales sites; and through the theaters.
