It is a combination of a football game
and a brothel."

BASED ON A TRUE INSPIRATIONAL STORY OF FAITH,
BREAKTHROUGH ARRIVES ON DIGITAL JULY 2 AND
4K ULTRA HD™, BLU-RAY™ AND DVD JULY 16

“YOU DON’T HAVE TO BELIEVE IN DIVINE INTERVENTION TO BE
MOVED BY THIS STORY”
– Bilge Ebiri, The New York Times

 

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment presents BREAKTHROUGH, arriving on Digital July 2 and 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on July 16.

BREAKTHROUGH was the #3 film at the box office it’s opening weekend, eventually drawing more than $50MM worldwide, and continuing the trend of successful stories of faith being told on the big screen. With an A Cinemascore (one of the top nine films scored by audiences this year), Joyce Smith’s story of faith resonated with families everywhere.
 
“BREAKTHROUGH’s home entertainment release gives us an opportunity to showcase some of the incredible footage grabbed on set that we couldn’t include in the theatrical experience,” said DeVon Franklin, Producer of BREAKTHROUGH and well-known to faith audiences for theatrical hits including MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN and THE STAR. “We included deleted scenes and bonus features with never-before-seen footage with cast and crew shot during the film’s production.”
 
When Joyce Smith’s (Chrissy Metz) adopted son John (Marcel Ruiz) falls through an icy Missouri lake, all hope seems lost as John lies lifeless. In the face of every bleak medical case history and dire scientific prediction, Joyce’s unwavering belief inspires her community to pray for John’s recovery. Based on the incredible true story, BREAKTHROUGH is an enthralling reminder that faith and love can create a mountain of hope, and sometimes even a miracle.
 
Along with producer DeVon Franklin (MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN), the film was adapted for the screen by Grant Nieporte (SEVEN POUNDS) from Joyce Smith’s own book (The Impossible). BREAKTHROUGH stars Chrissy Metz (This is Us), Josh Lucas (Yellowstone, SWEET HOME ALABAMA), Topher Grace (SPIDER-MAN 3, That ‘70s Show), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Marcel Ruiz (One Day at a Time), Sam Trammell (This is Us, True Blood), and Dennis Haysbert (24). BREAKTHROUGH is directed by Roxann Dawson (House of Cards, The Americans).
 
Awarded the Dove Seal of Approval for All Ages, BREAKTHROUGH’s message of hope and community will inspire the whole family.
