And that’s huge, considering that Fathom was the organizer of a “Twilight” one-night event that showed all three of The Twilight Saga films back-to-back-to-back and consistently shows big events on the bigscreen, from boxing matches to UFC fights to re-releases of classic films to Opera, Symphony and popular band concerts.
If you haven’t heard of Kirk Cameron’s Monumental before (you arguably have, considering all the press Kirk Cameron got after his Piers Morgan Tonight interview), then you definitely owe it to yourself to check the film out.
Here’s a Kirk Cameron’s Monumental trailer:
Subtitled, “In Search of America’s National Treasure”, Monumental is a faith-based film that is presented, produced and starring Kirk Cameron (of “Growing Pains” 80s sitcom fame, and now a born-again confessed Christian evangelist, who’s still producing movies & acting) in a unique documentary that follows Kirk as he seeks to discover the truth behind America’s founding, and the people, places, and principles that made this the greatest and freest, generous and most prosperous nation in the history of the world.
The film asks important questions like:
What formula did they [U.S. Founders] discover? What motivated them to come here in the first place? More importantly, how can we apply these same foundational truths today?
Here is Kirk Cameron discussing the Monumental film indepth!
“Long regarded as ‘the land of opportunity,’ there’s no question the tiny band of religious outcasts who founded this country hit upon a formula for success that went way beyond what they could have imagined. How else can you explain the fact that they established a nation that has become the best example of civil, economic and religious liberty the world has ever known?”
Monumental is heralded as “inspiring,” “beautifully executed,” “powerful,” and “one meant to teach.”
Monumental is still going strong and still playing in select theaters at select times thanks to its monumental (pun intended) success and the fact that it has broken Fathom records and is still in high demand.
While you are out seeing The Avengers and awesome new and upcoming flicks like The Dark Knight Rises, Men In Black 3, The Amazing Spider-Man, Ice Age 4, Prometheus, Madagascar 3, Dark Shadows, That’s My Boy (starring Andy Samberg & Adam Sandler), Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Disney Pixar’s Brave, Chernobyl Diaries, Battleship and all the rest…. Why don’t you think for a moment about putting your money into a movie that REALLY matters and really needs your support?
Because of that little fact, I am hoping to be able to afford paying to see Monumental on the big screen while I still can.
And if you do miss the movie, be sure to pick up the home video release on DVD when it hits stores July 2012! You can also pre-order Monumental on DVD now! :)
