The recent faith-themed box office hit Heaven is for Real has just hit the home entertainment market.  I’ve got five Blu-ray/DVD combo packs (which includes several bonus features) to give away to the first five folks who request them at john@jwkmedia.com.

Produced by T.D. Jakes and Joe Roth, the Sony Pictures Home Entertainment release tells the true story of Todd Burpo, a small-town minister whose young son Colton miraculously recovers from a near-death experience with vivid memories of his visit to Heaven. The film is based on the No. 1 New York Times best-selling book by Todd Burpo and Lynn Vincent. The movie was directed by Randall Wallace (Secretariat) and stars Greg Kinnear, Kelly Reilly, Thomas Haden Church, Margo Martindale and Connor Corum (as Colton Burpo, the boy upon whose experience the film is centered). The screenplay was written by Wallace and Christopher Parker. The MPAA rates the family/faith-friendly movie as PG for some thematic material and medical situations. For what it’s worth, I really liked the film.
