Lionsgate and Kingdom Story Company will release the I Still Believe movie on premium VOD (PVOD) across all premium platforms beginning on Friday, March 27 (pre-order at Amazon).
Joe Drake, Chairman of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, said: “The theatrical experience is core to our business, and exhibitors are our integral partners and allies. With theaters closed nationwide due to these unprecedented events, we want to continue to make I Still Believe available to consumers.”
He added: “We’re enormously proud of the movie that the Erwin Brothers created and are grateful to be able to share it with audiences for their home viewing pleasure.”
I Still Believe movie directors Jon and Andrew Erwin commented: “As filmmakers, we are heartbroken that we can’t share I Still Believe on a big screen the way we intended. We make movies because we love movies and we stand firmly behind the nation’s theater chains, from the largest circuits to the smallest mom and pop indies that have been so dramatically affected by these unprecedented closures.
“But the safety of guests comes first, and we’re proud to have the opportunity to share online a movie whose inspiring message of love, hope and faith is perfect for these uncertain times.”
The film has received an A CinemaScore from audiences and has received a 98% Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes.
I Still Believe marks the Erwin Brothers’ second collaboration with the studio following the box office hit I Can Only Imagine, and it is the first project coming out of their film and TV first-look deal with Lionsgate. Kevin Downes and the Erwin Brothers produce the film under their Kingdom banner.
I Still Believe is an uplifting and inspiring true life story of Christian music mega star Jeremy Camp and his remarkable journey of love and loss that proves there is always hope and that faith tested is faith worth sharing.
Jeremy Camp is a GRAMMY-nominated singer and songwriter who has sold over five million albums and has toured the world, sharing his music in more than 36 countries. He’s received numerous landmark accolades, including four RIAA-certified Gold albums, two American Music Awards nominations, multiple ASCAP awards, 38 No. 1 songs, a Gold digital single (“There Will Be a Day”), a multi-Platinum DVD, and was Billboard’s #2 artist of the decade 2010.
