People Still Finding FIREPROOF

Check out a couple of blog posts about FIREPROOF from just this week:

“Last night Eddie and I watched the movie FIREPROOF it came highly recommended to us by my awesome sister-in-law Ashli. This movie was amazing to say the least. If you are married you need to see this movie regardless of what stage or situation you are in your marriage you need to see this movie. ...
“I am going to say it again EVERYONE NEEDS TO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!! IT IS RELATIONSHIP CHANGING. And I don't want to hear our relationship is fine we don't need it. There is nothing wrong with always reaching for better when it comes to you marriage no matter how good it is.”
(Greenwoodology 101)

“I watched FIREPROOF at Covenant Vision Christian Church yesterday and a few points impacted me. These are not new things but reminders of what I already know and believe. But as we all know and experience, living out what we believe is an entirely different matter. ...
“I really enjoyed the movie and I’d encouraged everyone to watch it. If I had watched it in the cinemas, I probably would have cried my eyes out.”
(One Day at a Time)

The movie that keeps on impacting time and time again!

Today's In-Flight Entertainment ...

We received this report from someone living in the Middle East:

“I was blown out of the water the other day on a flight from Turkey when the only in-flight movie that all the passengers watched was FIREPROOF. The people on the plane were almost entirely Muslim or—as I assume since Turkey's non-Muslim population is for the most part secular—atheists or agnostics. As the Gospel was clearly proclaimed, I was praying that those watching would make the connection to their own need for the Savior. The film touched my own heart, and I hope that it touched the hearts of my fellow passengers from that night.”

While We’re Waiting ...

“While I’m Waiting” is a great song on John Waller’s first album. The heartfelt worship anthem became a hit when it was featured in FIREPROOF. Now, While I’m Waiting is the name of the second album from John.

In anticipation of the release of that record on April 7, there is a new music video of “While I’m Waiting” featuring clips from FIREPROOF. Take a look:

John Waller - While I'm Waiting (Official Music Video) from Provident Label Group on Vimeo.

In addition to the original version of the song, the new album also features “While I’m Waiting/FIREPROOF Remix.” With clips from the movie spliced into the song, the remix is starting to get airplay on Christian radio stations. If you haven’t heard it on your favorite station, be sure to call or email them to ask them to play it.

And please let us know what you think of the new music video as well as the remix.

Come What May

Exciting things are happening around here! Today, March 17, is the release date of the new DVD called Come What May, whose trailer is on the FIREPROOF Special Collector’s Edition DVD.

Come What May is the story of two college students competing together for the National Moot Court college championship. Their focus: the sanctity of life. While Rachel lives out her beliefs, Caleb wrestles with the issue of “when does life really begin?” Having been raised by his professor father and lawyer mother to “do the right thing ... come what may,” Caleb’s dad helps him find solid ground:

The DVD is already challenging and encouraging viewers. Kristan J. Hawkins, the Executive Director of Students for Life of America, says this:

Come What May is an inspirational story that is helping to motivate this generation to reverse Roe v. Wade and end abortion in our lifetime.”

You can find Come What May at your favorite Christian store or Christian online retailer. And be sure to check out ComeWhatMaytheMovie.com to learn more about the movie, Advent Film Group, and see the trailer.

Another Amazing Story

Ready for a great story? Here is one that Janell submitted at FireprooftheMovie.com:

“My husband is in the US Navy and has been involved in some things that sidetracked him from our marriage. I watched the movie while he was deployed, and once he got into port, I asked him to watch it. He watched it last night and called me to tell me that he finally understood what I was going through, and that he is sorry. He told me he wasn't living up to the core values of the Navy. He also admitted to an addiction to pornography, and he wants to get help. PRAISE THE LORD! This movie and series, along with another book, have truly saved our marriage. I was the one wanting out, but God has worked in mysterious ways around the world by finding my hubby on a sub in the middle of the ocean and helping him to go back to Christ. Thank you very much for helping us to rebuild our marriage on the Rock.”

More than 3,000 stories about lives and marriages being impacted and changed have been submitted! If you need a pick-me-up, head over here!

Worth The Wait

We thought you might enjoy an interview with John Waller about his song “While I’m Waiting,” which is featured in FIREPROOF. The story appears on the website NewReleaseTuesday.com.

In the story, John says:

“I am so humbled that ‘While I’m Waiting’ was not only used in its entirety in the film, but is also making a huge impact on people’s lives who resonate with its message of hope in the midst of a painful wait. We are waiting in expectation that there is hope for us. There are marriages that are in trouble and every day we are getting new testimonies about how the song is impacting lives.”

Casting for Stories

One of the fun new elements added to FireprooftheMovie.com when the DVD released were stories from the cast about their experiences in the aftermath of the movie playing in theaters and impacting lives.

We talked with Erin Bethea (Catherine), Ken Bevel (Michael), Harris Malcom (Dad), and Stephen Dervan (Wayne). You can read their thoughts here. We just added another story to the mix: Alex Kendrick!

Enjoy a preview of what the director and co-writer of FIREPROOF has to say:

“There’s not a day that goes by that we don’t hear testimonies from viewers who have been changed by the story. Hearing how the Lord has transformed marriages never gets old! It still amazes me that God has impacted so many lives, but I am grateful that He allowed us to be a part of the journey.”

... And the Award Goes To ...

On the weekend Hollywood handed out its biggest awards, NPR had an interesting story on its home page: Christian films! While focusing on the recent Christian film festival in San Antonio, Texas, the story highlights the impact that FIREPROOF has had on the industry.

Of course, the assumption of the reporter is that the NPR audience has no idea what FIREPROOF is:

“If you don’t believe us, take this quiz: What was the biggest grossing independent film in 2008? No, not Slumdog Millionaire. Not Milk. It was a movie you’ve probably never heard of.”

The story includes quotes from Kirk Cameron and Stephen Kendrick, along with Ben Howard, the head of Provident Films. Read the story and let us know what you think.

Why FP in 60?

A while back, we asked what is your favorite bonus feature on the FIREPROOF DVD. It is safe to say that FIREPROOF in 60 is your clearcut winner. If that is your favorite, know you are in good company. We asked director Alex Kendrick the same question and he was also a big fan of FPin60.

So we asked him how the idea came about:

“We always want to add something to our DVDs that the audience hasn’t seen before. Before we started shooting, I thought it would be hilarious to watch a short version of the film, with abbreviated dialog. Since it seems to have hit everyone’s funny bone, we might do it next time as well.”

As they say in the entertainment industry: Stay tuned ...

Pop Quiz Time

Okay, it’s more like question time, but we wanted to get your attention.

In reading through all of the Blog comments, something has popped up somewhat regularly: “We didn’t see the movie in the theater, but we love the DVD.”

For those of you who DID NOT see FIREPROOF last fall, our question is: Why didn’t you see it in the theaters?

A) It didn’t play within an hour of my house
B) It didn’t play within 30 minutes of my house
C) I choose to not see movies in theaters
D) I never heard about it when it was in theaters
E) I just never got around to seeing it
F) Your reason here ...

Please let us know and feel free to elaborate if you wish. We look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Atop the Charts

FIREPROOF continues to be the most popular DVD available at Christian stores. It also was No. 5 in general retail stores and it was No. 7 in rentals in the most recent industry statistics.

Now, The Love Dare has returned to the top of the New York Times bestsellers list for paperback advice books ... and, as of earlier this morning, it was No. 3 in the overall books list on Amazon.

While the Blog is rarely silenced, this comes close. All we can say is Wow! If your marriage is one of the countless that has been changed by the movie or the book, please let us know.

Still Big News

Months after appearing on the front page of the entertainment page on CNN.com when it was release in theaters, FIREPROOF is once again news on the Cable News Network’s website.

The story, entitled “FIREPROOF Still Generating Heat, talks about the film being No. 3 on the Billboard top DVDs for the week. The story quotes one of the magazine’s editors.

“‘You don’t often see movies made by churches do big numbers,’ said Billboard’s Anthony Colombo.”

Can't really argue that point, now, can you? The story goes on to quote Kirk Cameron and Alex Kendrick among others.

Read it and let us know what you think!

DVD a Hit in Blogosphere!

Now that FIREPROOF is out on DVD, it’s exciting to see a new round of positive reviews by real people on different blogs. The Rev. Ed Hird, Rector at St. Simon’s in North Vancouver, writes:

“If you are looking for a good Valentine’s Day flick, I recommend that you pop over to your DVD stores to pick up the FIREPROOF DVD. So often we act as if our marriages never need tune-ups ... that somehow they can look after themselves. Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to put our other distractions aside and treat our spouses as the most important persons on earth.”

Faith, a fan since the film opened, shared how she and friends enjoyed the DVD:

We also watched the special features. It was very cool to see the cast members behind the scenes. I love that they worked together and prayed together. We laughed so hard at a few of the special features. I can't even tell you how funny it was.

Let us know if you have recently posted about FIREPROOF on your blog. And thanks for helping spread the word!

John Waller on K-Love Thursday

Among the amazing FIREPROOF pre-release screenings that were hosted across the country last summer, one night that stands out was in Orlando during the annual Christian retail convention (ICRS).

John Waller, whose song “While I’m Waiting” plays a prominent role in the movie, joined many of the cast and crew members in attendance. At the end of one of the screenings, John played his song for the audience.

“While I’m Waiting” has gone on to become a popular hit at Christian stores, on Christian radio station playlists, and as a download. So have the other songs in the movie, including Casting Crowns’ “Slow Fade,” Third Day’s “This Is Who I Am” and “Otherside,” Warren Barfield’s “Love Is Not A Fight,” Leeland’s “Brighter Days,” and Grey Holiday’s “Your Belong To Me.”

John Waller will be talking about his song, the movie, and his album The Blessing on the K-Love morning show Thursday between 8-10 a.m. EST (5-7 a.m. PST). You can find a list of K-Love stations or listen online.

We hope you tune in. And remember, you can watch the music video for “Slow Fade” on the FIREPROOF Special Collector’s Edition DVD, available only from Christian stores.

DVD Release Party

It’s the night before the DVD release of the No. 1 independent film of the year. The movie’s co-writer/producer has gathered with one of the executive producers, the lead actress, and three other members of the ensemble cast.

But if you’re looking for red carpets, camera crews from “Access Entertainment,” or famous Hollywood landmarks, you’ll be looking for a long time. After all, we’re talking about FIREPROOF here!

To celebrate the release of the movie on DVD, a team from Sherwood traveled to Spartanburg, South Carolina, to meet and interact with nearly 500 fans at a great Christian store. For more than two hours, the team talked with and signed DVDs and books for their newfound friends.

Erin Bethea, Ken Bevel, and Jason McLeod meet FIREPROOF fans

“This is a great event,” said Stephen Kendrick, who was joined by Jim McBride, Erin Bethea, Ken Bevel, Harris Malcom, and Jason McLeod at Christian Supply. As he welcomed the crowd from the stage, he thanked store owner Chuck Wallington and the Christian Supply staff for hosting the event.

“We aren’t celebrities,” Stephen added. “We came to God with our five loaves and two fish … and God still uses those!”
Stephen Kendrick addresses the crowd at Christian Supply

People began arriving at the store at 5:30 p.m. for the 7 o’clock event. After hearing from the cast, they were able to meet the FIREPROOF team and have pictures taken with them.

Before that, Erin told the crowd how she had given up her job as an actress at Disney to make FIREPROOF … only to be offered her dream job there after filming concluded. “Trust the Lord with your desires and your goals,” she said. “He gave you your passions, desires, and abilities to serve Him.”

Ken told the crowd, “It’s a blessing to be here. God has done some awesome things in my marriage through FIREPROOF.” Harris, like Ken, said he brought no acting experience to his role as Caleb’s father. However, “I did have 30 years experience as a dad. We are thankful for the support of people like you that bought out show times and took your friends to see FIREPROOF.”
Ken, Jason, and Harris Malcom talk with new friends

Jason, who played Eric Harmon in FIREPROOF talked about his first film role: Brock Kelly in Facing the Giants. “Little did I know that God would use that opportunity to change my life. If God can use someone like me, He’ll use anyone.”

It’s a message that FIREPROOF fans in Spartanburg—and around the country—hear loud and clear!

South Africa Checking In

Stories. Since FIREPROOF opened in theaters last September, we have heard incredible stories from people all across the country whose lives and marriages have been impacted by this movie.

Now, with the DVD being available, we are starting to hear stories from all around the world. Stories like this one from Hanti:

“I’m from a small town, Balfour in South Africa, and my husband and I couldn’t wait for the DVD. After watching it, we decided that it will be great to go through the movie and study guide with our small group at church. Today at work, one of the ladies suddenly spoke to me about the bad state of her marriage (and I hadn’t even told her about the movie yet) and I immediately invited her to join us in our small group. Even my boss now asked where I got the movie from, and where he could buy The Love Dare. I believe that this movie is going to reach thousands of people in South Africa.”

If you have friends in a country outside of the United States, or if you yourself live elsewhere, you can find out more about the international release of FIREPROOF on the DVD website.

Interview with Kirk

You may have seen or heard an interview with castmembers of FIREPROOF in the previous couple of days. The team was busy helping get the word out about the DVD release. Let us know if you saw or read an interview and where you caught it.

Kirk Cameron, who played Caleb Holt, was interviewed on the Moviefone website. Among the things he said was:

“I think the best part about the movie was just the responses from people after seeing it. It wasn’t just, ‘Hey that was cool, that was fun,’ or you know, ‘Good story.’ People were saying things like: ‘You don’t understand. That was exactly like watching my own marriage up on the big screen. That’s what's going on in my house.’ Or, you know: ‘We went out and got The Love Dare and my husband and I have canceled our divorce hearing. We’ ve been married for 30 years, and our marriage is finally getting back on track because of this movie.’ So marriages have been rescued from divorce because of the movie and the book The Love Dare. So that’s the best part.”

You can read the whole interview here.

Read All About It

Today’s Wall Street Journal has a story about the Christian film industry, with a strong focus on FIREPROOF. This is how their story begins:

“Through a purely Hollywood lens, ‘Fireproof’ is the most unlikely film success since ‘Rocky.’ It was written by novice screenwriters, cast nearly entirely with amateurs, staffed largely by volunteers, and shot almost all on location. It wrapped for a total outlay of only $500,000. But that’s where God provides a different prism.”

Take a look at the entire story, then let us know what you think ... not only about the story, but also about what you look for in a movie.

One Week from Today!

FIREPROOF arrives in stores next Tuesday, January 27.

As if that wasn’t exciting enough (and we happen to think it is), we have some more good news: we have relaunched FireprooftheMovie.com for the DVD release. You will find some fun new elements, including Q&A with some of the cast members.

In addition, you can get a first look at FIREPROOF in 60, a fun DVD bonus feature that you have to see to believe! You will also still be able to access the full movie site, look for great resources, and find a link to FireproofMyMarriage.com.

Head over there, take a look around, and let us know what you think.

And by the way, did we mention: FIREPROOF, next Tuesday!

Friday, January 16, 2009


As we get within a week-and-a-half of the DVD release of FIREPROOF, we thought we would share the story that Clarke posted on the website:

I pre-bought the FIREPROOF DVD back in October during the first week it went on pre-sale at Family Christian Stores. I have seen this movie 10 times in the theater. Yes, 10 times! I love this movie! I got word through a co-worker that FIREPROOF was playing at the $2.50 movie theater now, here in my area. So I am going to see it again tomorrow night, for the 11th time! This movie will change your life forver! Thanks goes to the Kendrick brothers for making such an awesome and POWERFUL movie! Well done!

That, I believe, is a fan!

No. 1 Indie Film of 2008!

You read the headline correctly: FIREPROOF indeed was the top independent film release of 2008. The website Defamer found this to be mind-boggling:

“The year-end tally features FIREPROOF ... atop an impressive pile of awards hopefuls including Slumdog Millionaire, Milk, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Rachel Getting Married and even The Visitor, whose renown as this year’s preeminent indie sensation nevertheless was good for only $9.4 million since opening last April. FIREPROOF accrued more than three times as much since the end of September, never expanding beyond 905 screens.”

Wasn’t there a movie a couple of years back that wondered what is impossible with God? The answer is nothing!

Checking in with Caleb's Dad

Harris Malcom plays John Holt, father of Caleb. His wife Phyllis played Caleb’s mom Cheryl in the movie! The couple had a gratifying experience following a recent church service.
“We were worshiping at a church one evening and the pastor recognized us as being present and our parts in the movie. This man came and said, ‘Thank you, my wife and I are back in church because of FIREPROOF.’”

Harris, a long-time pastor, serves churches across southwest Georgia in his role as a Ministry Resource Consultant for the Baptist Convention of the state of Georgia.
