No?? Well, I hadn't heard much about it either. But, check out the movie trailer!
Doesn't it look great?! Honestly, like I said, I didn't really know much about it. Like, maybe I saw something in passing on FB about it a few days ago, but it didn't catch my attention enough to look. But then!! The nice people at Grace Hill Media sent me an email asking if I would like to host a giveaway and help promote SON OF GOD (also, I know it looks like I keep yelling that, but it's how "they" are promoting it... so, I'm following suit!)!
My first reaction was... "um, this is spam! What is this?!" And then I looked up the movie and realized it is a legit movie. Then, of course, I asked Mart what she thought, and SHE thought it sounded cool. So, I emailed them back.
And, here we are. :) [In the interest of full disclosure, I have been wanting to host some sort of giveaway for a while, but had nothing to giveaway, so I jumped at this chance! So, I apologize that this is what this post is allll about! Just go with it, folks!]
What did you think of the trailer??? I mean, it looks really, really good. The cinematography and visual effects in and of itself look amazing. Mark Burnett (from Survivor, right?!) and his wife Roma Downey (Touched by an Angel- I LOVED THAT SHOW!) produced/starred in The Bible on The History Channel last year. Also something else I didn't watch, but heard great things about. Anyway, both Mark and Roma wanted there to be a feature film about the life of Christ, from His birth to his death and resurrection. So, they set out to do it!
And it comes out THIS FRIDAY, February 28th. I don't think it will be everywhere, so be sure to search on the website for shows/times and to purchase advanced tickets! Mart and I might even take the youth group to see it!!
This is the first major motion picture about the life of Jesus in yeeeears! Something like 10 years since The Passion and FIFTY years since there has been a movie about the entire life of Jesus. We should see it and support and #spreadtheword about!! There is a lot of buzz about it already! Woot! Even Brandon Vogt and Cardinal Wuerl from the Archdiocese of Washington, DC are endorsing it. (Interestingly they share the same favorite scene of the movie!)
Do you think you will see it?! If so, let me know! If you comment below, you will automatically be entered to win some cool stuff! Por ejemplo (for example):
|Official soundtrack, 1000 piece puzzle and a novelization (book from movie)|
[Update on Monday: I just received my prize pack! What you see in the pic above, is exactly what you get! :) Proof:
The puzzle picture is different... shoot me. ;) The soundtrack is pretty awesome... I can't wait to hear it with the moments in the movie. Although, the Ceelo Green version of "Mary Did you Know?" is... well... is odd. I don't know. It's a remix. It's Ceelo Green. Just odd to me. But, the book, puzzle and CD are all in good shape! So, I hope YOU win!]
