'Jesus Revolution' Film Set to Hit Theatres

‘Jesus Revolution’, a movie that tells a true life story of how many young secular folks turned to Christ which charted a new course in America in the 1960s and 1970s, is set to be played in the theatres in February 2023.

One of the actors in the movie, Jonathan Roumie, who also featured in “The Chosen”, a popular faith-based movie, spoke about “Jesus Revolution” on his Instagram page.

He wrote, "You might have seen this by now but for those who missed it, I am stoked to share the first-ever behind-the-scenes look at Jesus Revolution, in theaters everywhere February 2023. Experience the heart of our story: how a new counterculture crusade—a Jesus Movement—changed the course of history."

The movie, which is a collaboration with Lionsgate, was directed by Jon Erwin, who is notable for his films, “I Can Only Imagine” and “American Underdog.”

While explaining what the film is about, he said, "It was a time of fear and doubts in a generation that was looking for all the right things but in the wrong places, and they came to the end of themselves.

"It was just a powerful move of God that was undeniable. It shaped culture and it shaped America. We haven't experienced anything like it. It's been seven years since this movie and every other movie we made along the way, it's all led to this.”

The film is based on Pastor Greg Laurie's book, Jesus Revolution, which outlines "the true story of the national spiritual awakening in the early 1970s and its origins within a community of teenage hippies in Southern California."

Laurie started Harvest Christian Fellowship, Riverside, California, after she was saved. The church is now one of the largest churches in the United States of America.

Speaking of the film, Laurie said, "I don't think we necessarily knew we were a part of history, but we knew we were part of something very special. Thousands of young people were coming to Christ and being baptized. We called it the Jesus movement."

Some persons also shared their thoughts on the movie. Actress, Anna Grace Barlow said, “It's a story of finding yourself, finding your faith, finding your way. I just think it is going to be so uplifting.”

On his part, Christian filmmaker, Devon Franklin wrote, "Audiences are going to get a strong message of love and hope."
