Santa Monica, CA – ARC Entertainment announced today the action epic For Greater Glory, will have its theatrical release in the U.S. on Friday, June 1. release wide.
Produced by Pablo Jose Barroso, Academy Award® nominee Andy Garcia and Golden Globe winner Eva Longoria lead a stellar multinational cast that includes the legendary Peter O’Toole, rapidly rising star Oscar Isaac (Drive), recording star and actor Ruben Blades (Safe House), Bruce Greenwood (Star Trek, Super 8), Nestor Carbonell (The Dark Knight Rises), Bruce McGill (Lincoln), Santiago Cabrera (Heroes, Che), Oscar®-nominated Catalina Sandino Moreno (Maria Full of Grace) and Eduardo Verástegui (Bella).
For Greater Glory unfolds against the long-hidden, true story of the 1920s Cristero War – the daring people’s revolt against the government of Mexico that rocked 20th Century North America. What would you pay for the price of freedom? In For Greater Glory, an impassioned group of men and women each make the decision to risk it all for family, faith and the very future of their country, as General Gorostieta (Garcia), the retired military man who at first thinks he has nothing personal at stake as he and his wife (Longoria) watch Mexico fall into a violent civil war. Yet the man who hesitates in joining the cause will soon become the resistance’s most inspiring and self-sacrificing leader, as he begins to see the cost of religious persecution on his countrymen . . . and transforms a rag-tag band of rebels into a heroic force to be reckoned with.
“For Greater Glory” is a powerful true story that has been a passion project for all those involved,” said producer Pablo Jose Barroso. “We’re proud to be working with ARC Entertainment who share our passion for the film.”
Director Dean Wright brings a visual power honed from years as a leading Hollywood effects guru – on such blockbusters as Titanic, The Lord of the Rings trilogy and Chronicles of Narnia – to this real-life tale that has never been told on screen before. The film is written by Michael Love.
The film was shot on historic locations throughout Mexico, by director of photography Eduardo Martinez Solares (Bad Habits), Oscar®-nominated editor Richard Francis-Bruce (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone), production designer Salvador Parra (VOLVER) and Oscar®-winning composer James Horner (Avatar, Titanic, Braveheart
