Pure Flix, with general consumer market sales and distribution support provided by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, will doing something a little extra for the faith-based clientele come Aug. 15.
That’s the street date for both DVD and Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack editions of director Joe Ginn’s film adaptation of Lee Strobel’s best selling book, The Case for Christ.
The ARR is 130 days and domestic ticket sales for the film’s theatrical run currently stand at $14.7 million.
It’s 1980 and Lee Strobel (played by Mike Vogel — The Help, Cloverfield, Poseidon, etc.), a somewhat smug (think: self-righteous) Chicago Tribune reporter (with a law degree) and a self-avowed atheist, decides to put his wife (Erika Christensen) Leslie’s Christian faith to the test. He will debunk the existence; the myth of Jesus Christ. But step by step along his investigative path he arrives at a conclusion that, for him, was life-changing.
What Pure Flix has as a bonus is a soundtrack CD from the film — 11 songs in all — from the album, “The Case for Christ Songs.”
Other bonus goodies common to all SKUs are a video session with Lee and Leslie Strobel, deleted scenes and a series of behind-the-scenes featurettes.
