Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has officially announced that it will release on Blu-ray director Randall Wallace's drama Heaven Is for Real (2014), starring Greg Kinnear, Kelly Reilly, Thomas Haden Church, Margo Martindale, and Rob Moran. The release will be available for purchase on July 22.
Based on the No. 1 New York Times best-selling book, Heaven is for Real recounts the true story of a small-town father who must find the courage and conviction to share his son's extraordinary, life-changing experience with the world. Starring Academy Award nominee Greg Kinnear (Best Supporting Actor, As Good As It Gets) as Todd Burpo, the real-life father whose son Colton claims to have visited Heaven during a near death experience. Colton shares the details of his amazing journey with childlike innocence and speaks matter-of-factly about things that happened before his birth ... things he couldn't possibly know.
I saw this in the movie theater, however this Christian movie that is based on a true story was ok, but not one of my favorites. I will be purchasing this on Blu-ray. A $40.99 list price is a little high for this Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. I wish there was a Blu-ray only version of the movie for $10 cheaper for those consumers that own 100% Blu-ray players.
