An EWTN Exclusive Documentary:
Behind-The-Scenes Of The New Film ‘Son of God’

Irondale, AL – “Son of God” will explode on screens nationwide February 27. EWTN viewers have two exclusive opportunities to get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of this extraordinary film.

First, tune in to “The World Over” with Host Raymond Arroyo for an exclusive interview at the Malibu home of Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, the couple behind the film. (Airs 8 p.m. ET, Thursday, Feb. 20 on EWTN,
Then, tune in to “Faithful Reflections on Son of God,” a half-hour documentary, which is also hosted by Arroyo. (Airs 9 p.m. ET, Sunday, Feb. 23; 2 a.m. ET, Tuesday, Feb. 25; and 2:30 p.m. ET, Wednesday, Feb. 26 on EWTN.)

“Son of God” brings the story of Jesus’ life to audiences through compelling cinematic storytelling. It is told with the scope and scale of an action epic and features powerful performances, exotic locales, dazzling visual effects, and a rich orchestral score. Some Christian leaders are already saying they plan to rent out every screen in numerous cities for the film’s long-awaited premiere.

  1. In the name of orthodoxy please re-review the film. I tend to agree with those whose doctrine is intact insofar as emotion is not synonymous with salvation. This film, although "pretty," panders to mainstream (Protestant) Christianity. Where do Burnett and Downey insist on the emphasis of the "body and blood?" I was disappointed enough when I learned that Bishops Wuerl and Gomez found a lot of inspiration in this drek. If I want emotion and drama to feel all warm 'n fuzzy, then I choose Downton Abbey. Burnett and Downey earned their Malibu digs on the coattails of Gibson's Passion of the Christ. Hmmm, they even live in Malibu, as well. Ah, EWTN where hast thou gone? Now you insist on feeling us this pablum of unCatholic "stuff." God help us all! Now I understand precisely why our Church is like a vacillating grand dame who will not dig in her heels and call it like it is.
