Pilgrims Progress

Another new movie. This one is a modern retelling of John Bunyon's story, Pilgrims Progress. From the poster -- it looks very modern. Yikes... I don't like scary movies... they seem much more scary then the books.

Anyway... About The Film
Pilgrim’s Progress: Journey to Heaven is a modern adaptation of John Bunyan’s beloved classic. It is the #1 Christian fantasy of all time! The novel has been heralded as a literary masterpiece around the world, as it has been published in over 100 languages and is the most read book other than the Bible.
Amazing visual effects, beautiful locations and a wonderful cast bring to life the story that has inspired each generation for hundreds of years. Follow Christian and his companions on a great Journey from the City of Destruction to the gates of Heaven as they face obstacles large and small, man-made and demon-spawned.
Beyond the gripping drama, Bunyan’s powerful allegory teaches us
all the hazards and hopes of the Christian life, and it features the
triumphant glory that awaits all who faithfully follow the King of kings!
This movie can be purchased as a DVD. I'm not sure when it will be released... but I found this most interesting.

At this time, over 6,000 people have seen the film in test screenings, with over 200 people surrendering their lives to Jesus.

I do believe this is a very powerful book to read... I'm hoping the movie will do it justice!
