David and Goliath movie release, in theatres this April 3, 2015
A new Christian movie is set for release in a limited amount of cities, coming this April 3, 2015. The movie was rejected by Hollywood with the hard-to-believe excuse that it is too biblical. Huh? After all, it is a CHRISTIAN movie, so exactly what does Hollywood expect? Well apparently, the director, Tim Chey has put too much Christianity into his movie and this movie is expected to be far more biblical than either “Exodus” or “Noah.” Both of these movies were approved and released by Hollywood and both of these movies were outlandishly far removed from their original Scripture-based accounts as recorded in the Holy Bible. According to Carol Edwards, writing for Breaking Christian News, in an interview with Tim Chey:
Chey refers to the backlash of the film ‘Noah’ which many Christian pastors and leaders shunned. The film still was a box office hit at $120 million, but Christians stayed away in droves.
“There are no rock monsters helping David unfortunately,” Chey jokes to the laughter of the reporters. “But kidding aside, I wanted to make a film that will reinvigorate the kind of faith the future King of Israel had, namely fighting a giant with a zero percent chance of defeating him outside of God.”
The story of David and Goliath is an oft-told Bible story that is told to youngsters in Sunday school as young as 3 or 4 years of age and is also loved by all other ages in the Church. So this movie will be refreshing since Tim Chey states that his ministry is one of an evangelist and therefore his movie will be Biblically accurate. The following Scripture is the key statement made by David, the soon-to-be King of Israel, spoken to Goliath when the Philistine giant mocks him.
David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.
Because this movie is being released independently, Tim Chey has been raising funds through Indiegogo.com, with the first campaign Chey has raised $19,673. In order for this movie to be able to play in any city, the production company must pay $1000.00 to the theatre. The first campaign has closed, but they have opened up another campaign and if you would like to donate to this Christian cause, you can donate here. So far, this second campaign has already raised $1,672.00, plus if you donate at least $15.00 you will receive a DVD copy of Tim Chey’s last movie, “Final.” If you donate $25.00 you will receive the DVD’s of Final and David and Goliath when it is released to DVD this July, 2015. Plus there are other incentives depending on how much you donate.
The following is a current list of the cities that this movie will be playing in so far:
- Atlanta, Anchorage, Austin, Albuquerque, Cleveland, Dallas, El Paso,
- Ft. Lauderdale, Ft. Myers, Houston, Honolulu, Knoxville, Orlando, Miami,
- Phoenix, Philadelphia, Portland, San Diego, Seattle, Tukwila, Vancouver.
If people want to see this movie come to their area, help these independent Christian producers get this film out to the public. Tim Chey has stated that his movie is biblically accurate and so there shouldn’t be any backlash from this film. So help support this Biblically accurate and family friendly film so that more movies of this caliber will hopefully be made in the future.
