NASHVILLE, Tenn., June 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- OVERCOMER, the highly anticipated sixth film from Alex Kendrick and Stephen Kendrick (WAR ROOM, FIREPROOF, COURAGEOUS, FACING THE GIANTS, FLYWHEEL) will debut in theaters nationwide on Aug. 23, 2019 from AFFIRM Films, a Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc. (SPE) company, and Provident Films. OVERCOMER follows on the heels of the Kendricks' 2015 hit WAR ROOM, which was the #1 movie in theaters across North America in its second week of release, surprising Hollywood by bringing in more than $70 million at the box office.
The film is accompanied by a suite of products releasing this fall from B&H Publishing Group, including a trade book by New York Times best-selling authors Alex Kendrick and Stephen Kendrick titled Defined: Who God Says You Are, a trade book titled Radiant by New York Times best-selling author Priscilla Shirer, who plays a principal character in the film, plus two full Bible study suites, books for children and teens, and other resources.
"B&H is thrilled to partner again with the Kendricks to provide resources that enrich the viewers' experience," said Jennifer Lyell, VP for Book Publishing and Merchandising with B&H. "We believe these OVERCOMER products will help readers connect deeper with the themes explored in the film."
OVERCOMER is a live-action family film that dares to leave viewers filled with hope, inspired to dream, and asks, "What do you allow to define you?"
"The movie is about identity, an issue that everyone deals with," said writer and director Stephen Kendrick. "When a person discovers who they are in Christ, it opens up an understanding of how they can live that out in a daily basis. The resources from B&H will help readers do just that."
OVERCOMER is directed by Alex Kendrick (WAR ROOM) and produced by Stephen Kendrick (WAR ROOM) with a screenplay by the Kendricks.
