Upcoming + a GIVEAWAY: 90 Minutes in Heaven {in theaters Sept. 11} #HopeLives

90 Minutes in Heaven, based on the book (written by Cecil Murphey and Don Piper), will be coming to theaters this September 11th, and I was able to preview the first five minutes.

About the movie:
Releases in theaters everywhere September 11, 2015
Rating: PG-13 (for intense accident and injury images) 

Starring Hayden Christensen (Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones, Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith), Kate Bosworth (Remember The Titans, Blue Crush) Michael W. Smith, Fred Thompson, Dwight Yoakam, and Jason Kennedy, 90 Minutes In Heaven is based on the inspiring New York Times best-selling book that has sold 7 million copies. 

About the book:
Pastor Don Piper died January 18, 1989 when a semi-tractor truck crushed his car. Declared dead by the first rescue workers to arrive on the scene, Don's body lay under a tarp for the next 90 minutes. Don's soul, meanwhile, was experiencing love, joy, and life like he'd never known before. Don was in Heaven. 

When another pastor's prayers helped bring Don back to life, he became a living miracle! Yet this is one miracle Don wished never happened. Heaven's bliss was replaced by excruciating pain and emotional turmoil. With the support and prayers of his beloved Eva, their three kids, and friends near and far, Don clings to his faith in God and fights to regain a semblance of his previous life. The Piper family's incredible true story of perseverance and overcoming the challenges of life - and death - will bring hope and encouragement to all who see it. 



My thoughts:
It has a great cast (Hayden Christensen, Kate Bosworth, etc.) and the premise is definitely intriguing. The beginning of the clip I watched was interesting, also, so this is a movie I would check out when it comes to theaters. This movie is also based on Don Piper's actual story (what actually happened to him), and I love movies about true stories.
