Filmmaker Andy Erwin: ‘Ordinary Angels' Has a Powerful Message for the Church
February 20, 2024 - 9 min
Kingdom Story Company's new movie Ordinary Angels, set to release February 23, tells the true story of a hairdresser who rallies a community and a church to assist a widower whose young daughter is critically ill. Set in Louisville, Ky., during the 1990s, the film stars Alan Ritchson as the widower, Ed Schmitt, and two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank as the hairdresser, Sharon Stevens. "It's a miracle story," says producer Andy Erwin. The film, he said, "shows the gospel in action." "It puts kind of hands and feet to the gospel," he said. "This is just a great case study of how to get involved to do the next right thing as far as ministry, as far as outreach, as far as compassion towards people that are hurting in your community – you never know what somebody's going through next door. You never know what obstacles they're facing. And sometimes we stay so busy, especially in church culture, that we never slow down enough to figure out what, what's going on, and how can I help? I think this movie really shows a person that was willing to do that for a stranger. And then it inspired this church to make a difference."   🎥 Watch the video: https://youtu.be/UicSxNygR-w  Discover more Christian podcasts at lifeaudio.com and inquire about advertising opportunities at lifeaudio.com/contact-us.

Duck Dynasty's Kay Robertson Opens Up About 'The Blind' and Marriage Trials
February 1, 2024 - 14 min
Michael Foust recently sat down with Kay Robertson of "Duck Dynasty" fame to talk about "The Blind," the new movie detailing the highs and lows of her marriage to patriarch Phil Robertson. The matriarch of the Duck Dynasty business empire says she hopes the upcoming film about her family will encourage couples to “fight for” their marriage when all hope seems lost, just as she did when her husband Phil kicked her and the children out of the home when they were younger. The Blind (PG-13), scheduled to be released in theaters Sept. 28, tells the story of how Phil and Kay Robertson fell in love and then persevered during a split. Phil’s battles with anger and alcohol addiction are central to the plot. During one key scene, an out-of-control and drunk Phil kicks Kay and their young kids out of the house at night. The scene is based on a real-life event. “When Phil put us out, that was a humbling moment, a very humbling moment. And the boys were confused. They cried. I cried,” Kay Robertson told Christian Headlines. “... The boys would say, ‘Mom is daddy coming? Is daddy coming?’ And I'd say, ‘We're just gonna pray for him. We're gonna pray for him.’ And I said, ‘But we don't want him like he is, because the devil has a hold of him.’ And I would even say, ‘The devil is who's controlling your dad right now. And that's why he acts bad. He's a good man. But he needs God. And he needs the devil out of his life.’ And our boys would just pray for him every night.” At the time, Phil Robertson was managing a bar. The Phil Robertson that Americans know today – a reality star businessman who wears his Christian faith on his sleeve – was years away.

Angel Studios Executive Reveals How Sound of Freedom Shocked Hollywood
January 30, 2024 - 17 min
Michael Foust recently sat down with Angel Studios' Vice President and Head of Theatrical Distribution Brandon Purdie to discuss the success of the studio's new film "Sound of Freedom." The studio behind box office hits Sound of Freedom and His Only Son is transforming the industry with a movie-making model that flips the script on how films traditionally have been made, an executive at the studio says. Brandon Purdie, vice president and head of theatrical distribution at Angel Studios, told Christian Headlines that Angel’s unique model is one of the secrets behind the company’s stunning success. Sound of Freedom opened as the No. 1 movie in America and will pass $100 million gross in the coming days despite few in Hollywood giving it a chance to succeed. The studio’s first release this year, His Only Son, surprised movie observers by opening at No. 3 the weekend before Easter. “The theater chains are incredibly excited” about Angel’s success, Purdie said.
