Moviegoers in various parts of South Africa are invited to free, premiere screenings of two notable new movies: Loving the Bad Man, a powerful Christian feature film about forgiveness and redemption; and FUEL, an entertaining and informative multi award-winning documentary that promotes green energy alternatives to oil.
Loving the Bad Man, starring Steven Baldwin (The Usual Suspects), Christine Kelly (Salvation Boulevard), and Arturo Fernandez (Burn Notice), was released in the United States on Tuesday (July 10). It is a compelling film about a Christian girl who actively seeks to forgive and minister to a violent man who raped her, and who chooses to have the child conceived in the rape. The free premiere screening of this movie will be at the Maxi-Cineplex, Zambezi Mall, Pretoria North at 19:30 for 20:00 on Thursday August 2. You can reserve two free seats by clicking here.
Loving the Bad Man is slated for a domestic theatrical release on August 3, and it will be available on DVD and for community and church screenings on September 25. Humble Pie Entertainment will handle all marketing, the theatrical release in selected independent cinemas and the community & church screenings. Faith & Family Rentals will handle all DVD sales to movie rental stores and Brettian Productions will handle the DVD sales to retail stores.
The free premiere screenings of Fuel will be in Bloemfontein (Cinemas@Northridge) on July 16, Johannesburg (CineCentre, Killarney Mall) on July 17, Pretoria (Maxi-Cineplex) on July 18, Cape Town (Labia Theatre) on July 23 and Durban (Sun Coast Casino) on July 25. You can reserve two free seats for Fuel at the cinema of your choice by clicking here.
According to promoters, Green Truth, FUEL is an amazing, in-depth, personal journey by eco-evangelist Josh Tickell, of oil use and abuse as it examines wide-ranging energy solutions other than oil, the faltering US auto and petroleum industries, and the latest stirrings toward alternative energy. Tickell spent 11 years making this movie, showing himself – and others– that an individual can indeed make a difference.
FUEL will be in selected cinemas nationwide from July 27. The film will also be available for corporate events and screenings.
