God's Not Dead: We the Peopleleave your comments

USA Theaters: October 4-6, 2021 (wide release through Fathom Events)

Individual freedoms and liberties are at the center of this passionate and emotional story, and it runs from the heart of the country to the corridors of Washington.

The God’s Not Dead series continues in “God’s Not Dead: We the People,” as Reverend Dave finds himself at the defense of a group of Christian homeschooling families after they receive an impromptu inspection by a progressive, local-government official – who doesn’t like what she finds.

Believing that the children are receiving an inferior education compared to their public school counterparts, and potentially being unfairly indoctrinated at a young age by their Bible-believing parents, the families are ordered to return their children to the public school system, or else face exorbitant fines and contempt of court.

Taken aback by the interference of the government, and believing that their right to educate their own children as a freedom worth fighting for, the resistant families, along with Reverend Dave, are invited to Washington to testify in a landmark congressional hearing that will determine the future of public (and private) education in our country for years to come.

Actor White says the film is reminiscent of Jimmy Stewart’s “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington”.

November 5, 2021 (Apple TV+)

A man, a robot and a dog form an unlikely family as Tom Hanks stars in a powerful and moving adventure of one man’s quest to ensure that his beloved canine companion will be cared for after he’s gone.

Finch (Hanks) is a robotics engineer and one of the few survivors of a cataclysmic solar event that has left the world a wasteland. But Finch, who has been living in an underground bunker for decade, has built a world of his own that he shares with his dog, Goodyear.

Now, though, Finch is terminally ill. With time running out, he creates a robot (Caleb Landry Jones —‘Get Out,’ ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’) to watch over Goodyear when he no longer can. As the trio embarks on a perilous journey into a desolate American West, Finch strives to show his creation, who names himself Jeff, the joy and wonder of what it means to be alive and to teach him to become human enough to take care of Goodyear. And Goodyear himself must learn to accept and trust his new master.

In the tradition of classic Amblin films, FINCH promises to be an epic-scale adventure anchored by a moving exploration of how complicated it is to be human and the unbreakable bond between people and their companions, both canine and created.

North American Theaters: December 25, 2021

‘American Underdog’ tells the inspirational true story of Kurt Warner (Zachary Levi), who went from a stockboy at a grocery store to a two-time NFL MVP, Super Bowl champion, and Hall of Fame quarterback. The film centers on Warner's unique story and years of challenges and setbacks that could have derailed his aspirations to become an NFL player - but just when his dreams seemed all but out of reach, it is only with the support of his wife, Brenda (Anna Paquin) and the encouragement of his family, coaches, and teammates that Warner perseveres and finds the strength to show the world the champion that he already is.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Kurt’s career is regarded as one of the greatest stories in NFL history. Kurt and wife Brenda are reportedly devout Christians.

Warner has devoted time and money to his First Things First Foundation, the name of which was derived from his interview after winning the Super Bowl in 1999 (“Well, first things first, I’ve got to thank my Lord and Savior up above — thank you, Jesus!”). The foundation is dedicated to impacting lives by promoting Christian values, sharing experiences and providing opportunities to encourage everyone that all things are possible when people seek to put ‘first things first.’ The foundation has been involved with numerous projects for causes such as children's hospitals, people with developmental disabilities and assisting single parents.

What begins as an impulsive reaction evolves into an unexpected romance. But as forces conspire to separate them, the universal question arises: Can two people from such different worlds bridge the gulf between them and build a place where they both belong?

his film is based on a graphic novel written by Bobby Crosby.
