A faith-based movie made in Cabarrus County by the Kendrick Brothers will have a nationwide release in theaters on Friday, including showings at AMC Concord Mills 24.
The Kendrick Brothers, who produced the hit faith-based films “Fireproof” and “Courageous,” filmed the movie in Cabarrus County last summer. The movie had a special screening in June at the Gem Theatre in Kannapolis for the cast and crew of the movie. Local faith-based leaders were invited to the screening to help spread the movie’s message.
“War Room,” filmed at various locations in Cabarrus County, including Oakwood Cemetery, home in historic Concord on Grove Avenue, as well as downtown Kannapolis, Refuge Church in Kannapolis, Concord First Assembly and Pitts Baptist Church in Concord.
More than 65 area churches, including many in Cabarrus County, came together to help support the making of “War Room” with more than 775 extras acting in scenes for the movie.
With the success of their other films, “War Room” is sure to be popular amongst Kendrick Brothers fans. Their movie, “Courageous” grossed $34 million in the U.S. during its initial release and “Fireproof” grossed $33 million, according to the Internet Movie Database.
The premise to “War Room” states, “Tony and Elizabeth Jordan have it all—great jobs, a beautiful daughter, and their dream house. But appearances can be deceiving. Tony and Elizabeth Jordan’s world is actually crumbling under the strain of a failing marriage. While Tony basks in his professional success and flirts with temptation, Elizabeth resigns herself to increasing bitterness. But their lives take an unexpected turn when Elizabeth meets her newest client, Miss Clara, and is challenged to establish a “war room” and a battle plan of prayer for her family. As Elizabeth tries to fight for her family, Tony’s hidden struggles come to light. Tony must decide if he will make amends to his family and prove Miss Clara’s wisdom that victories don’t come by accident.”
