The makers of UNBROKEN: Path To Redemption have bumped up the movie’s theatrical release date to Sept. 14 from Oct. 6. The move takes the picture off the same weekend as Sony’s Venom and Warner Bros.’ A Star is Born and moves it to a weekend occupied by Moses and then the wider releases of Lionsgate’s A Simple Favor and Fox’s The Predator, according to Deadline Hollywood.
Based on Laura Hillenbrand’s bestselling book, UNBROKEN: Path to Redemption, begins where the hit movie Unbroken concludes, sharing the next amazing chapter of the unbelievable true story of Olympian and World War II hero Louis Zamperini.
The film follows the struggles Zamperini faced after the war — including marital problems and alcoholism — and how one night at a Billy Graham Crusade changed his life forever.
The movie, directed by God’s Not Dead filmmaker Harold Cronk, includes a depiction of the 1949 Los Angeles Crusade where Zamperini surrendered his life to Christ.
Billy Graham is portrayed in the movie by his grandson, Will Graham.
Zamperini’s connection to the Los Angeles area also includes attending Torrance High School and the University of Southern California. His legacy continues by way of a foundation that oversees Louis Zamperini Youth Ministries. The organization brings “the good news of hope, forgiveness and redemption through the gospel of Jesus Christ and by sharing the Louis Zamperini story to at risk youth.”
