‘I Still Believe’ Starring Gary Sinise Marks Huge First For Christian Movies
The Christian movie 'I Still Believe' starring Gary Sinise that tells the inspiring story of Jeremy Camp is setting records even before its release.
Gary Sinise’s Christian movie I Still Believe hasn’t even been released yet and it’s already setting records. It will be the first faith-based film to be shown in IMAX format. That’s a huge investment signaling industry expectations that this Christian movie by the same people who brought us I Can Only Imagine will be a tremendous success.
Moviegoers have been clamoring for Christian options on the big screen. In 2018, I Can Only Imagine hauled in over $17 million just in its opening weekend. The film was predicted to bring in $2 to $8 million overall.
That prediction was smashed within just days of its release. Movie producers took notice and Lionsgate’s I Still Believe is poised to make even more than its blockbuster predecessor. They are so confident that they are investing in IMAX.
KJ Apa Stars As Jeremy Camp In I Still Believe
The movie focuses on popular Christian singer Jeremy Camp’s relationship with Melissa Henning, who became his first wife.
Their faith was tested shortly after the start of their relationship when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She passed away just four months after they were married.
Camp did not allow the tragedy to destroy his faith. I Still Believe, which opens in theaters March 13th, is a story of love, loss, and life after loss. Faith remains the center of Jeremy Camp’s life.
