Over the past five years, Hollywood has truly embraced faith-filled films into a more high profile category. Before then many films were somewhat of a gamble as to whether or not they would be successful if their main focus was primarily on Jesus Christ and the great things that he does. Of course it has taken a great deal of dedication from actors, actresses, directors, producers and film crews to come together to make this movement come into fruition – and not just happen, but successfully happen.
Thanks to the many hours of dedication that are put forth towards writing scripts, filming actors, researching history, developing and producing sets, and directing the project Jesus is showcased within Hollywood. Of course you’ve heard of the talented Mark Burnett and his wife Roma Downey. Their production of The Bible and A.D have changed the industry and made the story of Jesus Christ a main stream event. Years before their project development, Mel Gibson captivated many viewers with The Passion of the Christ. The Passion brought in a ground breaking $612 million dollars in just box office sales.
Moreover, bringing Jesus to Hollywood doesn’t mean simply staring in a film about Jesus Christ – it means talking about his presence and life on high profiled platforms. Whether it be during an interview or on a professional web page, many great celebrities have brought Jesus to a more mainstream lens.
