Original movie digitally re-mastered frame-by-frame with new musical score; Blu-ray edition hits stores in April
Christian Newswire— In honor of its 35th anniversary, “JESUS” — the most watched film in history, having been viewed billions of times — has now been re-mastered in high-definition with a complete new musical score in Dolby 5.1 surround sound.
Amid a wave of biblical theatrical movies releasing this spring, this classic film, re-titled “The JESUS Film,” will have select theatrical showings around the nation beginning in March. Additionally, partnering with Cinedigm and Mission Home Video, the high-definition film will be available on Blu-ray, DVD and digital format in retail and online stores nationwide April 1.
“The JESUS Film” is a faithful depiction of Christ’s birth, ministry, death and resurrection as told in the biblical account from the Gospel of Luke. Virtually every word Jesus speaks in “The JESUS Film” is quoted from Scripture, with 450 leaders and scholars having reviewed the script for biblical accuracy. Further historical accuracy was ensured using clothing, pottery and other props made with first-century methods to portray a 2,000-year-old Palestinian culture.

The epic, big-budget Christian film, ‘Carry Me Home,’ from Writer/Producer Tim Chey, comes to theaters in 2014. The film looks at two stories, one of them on the early life of John Newton, the former slave trader who wrote ‘Amazing Grace.’
“John Newton’s life patterns mine in so many ways,” says Tim Chey. “He found Christ in a storm and his life changed forever.”
It took Chey eight years to research and write the script and nine years to bring the project to the big screen. The under $20 million dollar film has the 3rd highest budget for a Christian film after ‘Passion of the Christ.’
“I was thrilled when Cuba Gooding, Jr signed on,” says Chey. “He was my first choice. He read the script and said, ‘I’m in.'”
Chey’s friend, Dean Cundey (‘Jurassic Park,’ ‘Back to the Future’) also shot the movie. “The entire movie’s terrific look is because of one person: my friend Dean. He did a phenomenal job.”
Chey traveled from Fiji to Mississippi to Nova Scotia scouting locations. He chose Connecticut because of the natural beauty and Mystic Seaport.
“I picked Connecticut because of the tremendous historical significance,” says Chey. “We also filmed on the Amistad ship with Dean in a helicopter covering some truly epic moments.”
The highly-anticipated film is [...]
