LOS ANGELES, Aug. 30, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- Suing the Devil, the highly-acclaimed film that opened in select theaters nationwide on August 26, 2011 had the second highest-grossing average of any independent film in the nation.
The film, which won 5-Dove Seal from the Dove Foundation, hit theaters in in cities across the nation, including Dallas, Houston, Evansville, IN; Springfield, IL; Columbus, OH; Jacksonville, FL; Melbourne, FL; Greensboro, NC; Burlington, NC; and Kansas City, MO.
Suing the Devil stars Malcolm McDowell, Rebecca St. James, Corbin Bernsen, Shannen Fields ('Facing the Giants'), Tom Sizemore, Ros Gentle, and Bart Bronson. Hillsong also participated in the movie shot in Sydney, Australia.
Written and directed by Harvard alumnus Tim Chey ('The Genius Club' 'Gone'), the film has been having an emotional impact that is being compared to 'The Passion of the Christ.'
"So many people are us telling how the film opened their eyes to the devil's tactics," says Chey. "We had one story where a couple had a troubled marriage for 17 years. The morning after they saw the film, they restored their marriage and opened their house up for worship. Another was an atheist, who came to the front of the theater, and got on his knees after another screening. And yet another was a gang-member who accepted Christ because of the movie. Incredible."
At a time when 65% of American Christians don't believe the devil exists, Suing the Devil aims its guns at Satan's strategy. "2 Corinthians 2:11 says to not be ignorant of the devil's scheme," Chey points out. "Yet so many Christians today are glued to their TV sets - completely clueless that 5 media companies control 85% of all content. Completely clueless."
'Suing the Devil' also made the list of WIRED Magazine's 'Top Summer Movies That Will Rock Your World.'
Resonating strongly with audiences of all ages across the country, potent word of mouth is already branding Suing the Devil as the 'summer film to watch.'
In the film, Luke O'Brien (Bart Bronsen), a washed-up janitor turned night law student, decides to sue Satan (Malcolm McDowell) for $8 trillion dollars. On the last day before Luke ﬁles a default judgment, Satan appears to defend himself. On Satan's legal team are 10 of the country's best trial lawyers (Dennis Cole, Jeff Gannon, Annie Lee). The entire world watches Legal TV (Corbin Bernsen, Tom Sizemore, Rebecca St. James) to see who will win the Trial of the Century.
