NASHVILLE, Aug. 14, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- Suing the Devil, the highly-acclaimed film that has kept audiences and critics on the edge of their seats this summer, opens in select theaters nationwide on August 26, 2011.
The film, which won 5-Dove Seal from the Dove Foundation, has been pre-screening to thousands of standing-room crowds in venues across the U.S. and the world. "It's a landmark achievement in filmmaking," says one pastor. "It's one of the best Christian films ever made -- if not the best."
Suing the Devil stars Rebecca St. James, Malcolm McDowell, 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 Tim Chey ('The Genius Club' 'Gone'), the film is turning the heads of every Believer. The film turned away 1,000 people at one screening. Pastors from the 6th largest church in the U.S. to the smallest church are supporting the movie. The film's producers have discussed the film at the ICRS, CBA, NRB, and the Southern Baptist Convention.
Exit polls taken after screenings put Suing the Devil in the 'Top 5 Faith-Based Films of All-Time.'
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 the majority of Christians are as blind as a bat."
'Suing the Devil' also made the list of WIRED Magazine's 'Top Summer Movies That Will Rock Your World.'
The film opens in select theaters nationwide on August 26, 2011. 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.
