Filmmakers are finally listening to audiences and going with more family friendly movies. War Room has done amazingly in the box office, God's Not Dead 2 is gaining steam in production, and Woodlawn (in theaters October 16) is highly anticipated!

The tagline for the movie is One Hope. One Truth. One Way. The setting for the movie is Birmingham, Alabama in the 1970s. The story is a talented high school football player who must stay true to his faith and talent as he battles racial tensions in a very racially sensitive time in history. This is a true story of "how love and unity overcome hate and division."

Sean Astin (Rudy, Lord of the Ring trilogy) stars in this film along with newcomer Caleb Castille, Nic Bishop (Covert Affairs), Jon Voight (Ali, National Treasure), C. Thomas Howell (The Outsiders, Red Dawn), and Sherri Shepherd (The View).

It's directed by The Erwin Brothers (October Baby, Mom's Night Out) from a script by Jon Erwin and Quinton Peeples and is produced by Kevin Downes (Mom's Night Out). Roma Downey and Mark Burnett (The Bible, Son of Man) are executive producers. OK that's enough name-dropping.

I'm excited about this movie. I've been hearing about it online and on Pandora ads. I like football and movies and I love Jesus; this is just up my road! I hope you all go out to theaters to see it. The fun thing about this post is....


I wish I had tickets to give to you, but I have something just as good - books to go along with the movie!!! I love books and I know many of you do, too.

WHAT YOU WIN: 3 books - "Woodlawn" by Todd Gerelds (Coach Tandy Gerelds' son), "Touchdown Tony" by Tony Nathan (the star of the movie...not the actor but portrayed), and "When God Shows Up" a 40-day devotional. PLUS an official Woodlawn t-shirt. I think that's a pretty sweet deal to keep you reading for awhile. It's enough to satisfy my bookworm tendencies for awhile.
