There are a number of people who believe that there is a heaven or a hell, but there’s never really been any proof backing up these notions. But every once in awhile a movie pops up that puts some hope and faith back into the occasional religious believers, and Heaven Is For Real is definitely one such film.
Heaven Is For Real is based off the true story of four-year-old Colton whose near death experience got him in touch with heaven. From that point on he starts rambling on about seeing the ghosts of a number of people, which obviously freaks out his parents. This eventually turns into a phenomena of sorts as the town he lives in begins to believe that the boy had in fact seen heaven and all of these dead relatives. There’s a nice cast attached to this project which includes Greg Kinnear, Kelly Reilly, Margo Martindale and Thomas Hayden Church.
The movie is scheduled to come out on Easter (April 16, 2014), a very appropriate time given how spiritually inclined this movie is towards the religious audience. Heaven Is For Real seems stereotypically uplifting, and I may end up being one of those people who goes out to theaters just to get that nice fuzzy sense of hope and happiness. Plus that and this is the kind of movie that catholic schools, like the ones I went to back in grade school, would bring kids out to see on a weekday. Check out the new trailer below:
