“Courageous”: Coming to theaters Sept. 30, 2011

May 17th, 2011

There’s a new movie on the way, from the makers of Fireproof.  And what Fireproof did for marriage, Courageous promises to do for fatherhood.

A reporter writes,

“Courageous,” which is expected to be released in 2011, is about four police officers in Albany, Ga., who while giving their best to their job are not putting in the same effort to being a father. Tragedy strikes one of the officers’ family that causes the others to unite around him and vow to be more committed fathers.

The movie’s creators said they wanted to highlight God’s promise to “turn the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to their fathers.”

Some 24.7 million American children live without their biological fathers, the film’s creators noted. They cited federal government statistics that reveal 63 percent of youth suicides, 90 percent of all homeless and runaway children, and 85 percent of all youths in prisons come from fatherless homes.

The trailer looks pretty good–take a look.
