Sherwood Pictures and the Kendrick Brothers, makers of Flywheel, Facing the Giants, Fireproof, and Courageous, will debut their fifth film, War Room, in theaters across America in late August (Aug. 28).
First, though, several select towns in Louisiana will have the opportunity to have a pre-screening of the drama that explores what the power of prayer can do and the impact it can have on people’s marriages, parenting, careers, friendships, and everyday life.
Tony (T.C. Stallings) and Elizabeth Jordan (Priscilla Shirer) have it all—great jobs, a beautiful daughter, and their dream house. But things are not what they always appear to be.
They are about to find their perfect little world start to crumble down as their marriage begins to strain.
Tony faces the task of maintaining a successful career while also battling various temptations. On the flip side, Elizabeth resigns herself to increasing bitterness over what her husband is facing.
But they are about to face an unexpected twist when their lifes take a dramatic shift when Elizabeth meets her newest client, Miss Clara. Elizabeth discovers Miss Clara’s ‘War Room’ and begins question what that room is all about.
She is challenged by Miss Clara to create a ‘War Room’ of her own and to begin her own battle plan of prayer for her family. As Elizabeth tries to fight for her family, Tony’s hidden struggles come to light and is faced with an epidemic. He must decide if he will make amends to his family and prove Miss Clara’s wisdom that victories don’t come by accident.
The first pre-screening in Louisiana will take place June 29 at White Dove Fellowship, located on the West Bank in New Orleans followed by a July 17 screening at Istrouma Baptist Church in Baton Rouge and a July 21 screening at Northlake Christian School in Covington.
At the recent annual SBC Meetings in Columbus, Ohio, messengers voted to make a proclamation/declaration for August as War Room Prayer Month in commemoration of the 10-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
