TriStar Pictures and Sherwood Pictures are pleased to announce that “Courageous,” the latest installment from Sherwood Pictures, has reached more than $2 million in pre-sales ticketing in anticipation of its Sept. 30, 2011 national release.
Pre-sales numbers for “Courageous” more than double that of Sherwood Pictures’ most recent film, “Fireproof,” which opened at $6.8 million and went on to gross more than $33.4 million at the box office.
“Courageous” is the fourth release from the moviemaking ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. The first release was “Flywheel” (2003), followed by “Facing The Giants” (2006) and “Fireproof” (2008). With each release, Sherwood Pictures continues to entertain moviegoers with films that affect lives through heartfelt stories of faith and hope.
“Such great advance momentum reaffirms that the topic of fathers is universal and that “Courageous” touches a nerve,” Sherwood Pictures executive producer Michael Catt said. “Present or absent, fathers shape lives and we’re excited to use drama, adventure, humor . . . to inspire men to the high adventure of full-on parenting.”
“Courageous” is the story of four police officers with one calling: to serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, the men are confident and focused. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood. With God’s help, they struggle to be able to find a way to serve and protect those that are most dear to them. “Courageous” is rated PG-13 (for some violence and drug content) and runs 129 minutes.
