As the highly-anticipated movie, David and Goliath hits theaters in 25 cities this weekend, the director promises a different experience than Noah and Exodus.
"I have a lot of respect for Ridley (Scott) and Darren (Aronosfky)," says director Tim Chey. "But they're both avowed atheists. So you wonder what attracted them to do Bible movies in the first place."
Chey emphatically states the film will put God first. "God is in almost every scene," he continues. "This is why the Hollywood studios passed when we screened it for executives. So many of them were put off that so much of the film was about God, front and center."
In fact, one studio executive said, "You mention God in almost every scene."
Pastors around the country support the film and several large churches are buying out tickets. The film is also being shown worldwide simultaneously in countries such as Canada, Norway and the Philippines.
The film stars unknown actor Miles Sloman who beat out several thousand actors to get the part of David. And Jerry Sokolosky who is the tallest man in Canada at 7-foot-8.
David and Goliath is considered one of the big three Bible movies hitting theaters after Noah and Exodus: Gods and Kings.
David and Goliath looks at one of the most powerful and beloved Bible stories of all time. The film will focus on the early life of David who fought against the Philistine giant, Goliath against all odds.
David and Goliath opens in theaters this Friday, April 3, 2015.
