The Widow’s Might: In Theaters Starting April 13th


Some exciting news — and a call to action! John Robert Moore, a 19-year-old rebelutionary from Texas — whose film The Widow’s Might beat out Fireproof and Expelled for the Best of Festival and Audience Choice Award at the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival in January — passes on this update: The Widow’s Might is getting a limited theatrical release across the country, starting April 13th — just about two weeks from today.

If you want to help spread the message that young people are capable of far more than what society expects, this is a terrific opportunity to support a long-time rebelutionary who is making some waves. As with any theatrical release (and even more so for limited runs) the first week is critical.

We’re encouraging you to do hard things — make sure you and your family (and your friends) make it to the nearest screening. What’s more, we encourage you to champion this effort by spreading the word. You can find a list of theaters and times by clicking on the above image (or just click here). Catch the movie trailer below, which can be imbedded on your blog as well.

UPDATE: Even if there are no showings in your area, check out the location listings and alert friends or relatives in areas where it is. Every bit helps!

For more background, read this letter John wrote to rebelutionaries last year.

  • Sounds like a great movie! Thanks for letting us know.


  • Chris Hutton

    Darn, It would have been nice to get it out here in Italy. I heard this story, and was impressed. Hope it does well in the box office, and that it gets lots of attention in the media.

  • Chris, i’m sure that someone will record it and put it on youtube or hulu. I can’t becuase i dont know how, but i’m sure someone else will.

    I really want to see this movie. I’m going to look for it near me. Thanks for posting about it.

  • I’m excited about the theatrical release. I was the Behind the Scenes videographer/photographer, and had a blast working on the set.

  • What an oppurtunity!! I love the movie.

    Forgive me for doubting you but is this an April fools joke? It is April 1st so I’m wary of everything right now….

  • Becky Lynn

    Wow, I was surprised to not see Phoenix, Arizona on the list (that’s where I live). We’re such a huge city we usually get everything!
    Is there a way I could help bring A Widow’s Might to Phoenix?

  • Grace Brennan

    Aw, sad, it’s nowhere near me! But, that’s probably because I live in the middle of nowhere. :) I hope it does really well!

  • Tara Marie

    How exciting! 😀 And what a great example of doing hard things. I will be praying that his film has a great impact on people. I’m definitely going to try to go see it. 😉

  • Irina H.F.

    Rats! It’s nowhere near where I live. Despite that fact,I will pray for its success. Does anyone know if the commercial is on youtube? I could put it up on my channel and promote it that way.Thanks!

  • @Anna Claire, no, this is not a joke, it’s for real (it was announced previously on the film website).

  • Kaylea Bies

    I wish that I could go suport this film but sadly it is not playing near where I live. I am praying for it’s success.

  • Rebecca

    I just have to say, my family bought the movie and I think it’s great! I would encourage everyone who can to go see it!

    awww man! The closest location to me is about 3 hours away :( But that is really awesome that it’s going to be in theatres for awhile! :)

  • Amanda Howell

    That’s great news! I hope it will be showing somewhere close.

  • I hope that many people see it and that the media notices!
    Soli Deo Gloria

  • Cool!

  • Wow! I’ll be sure to tell my family and friends about it! John really did a hard thing for God’s glory!

  • I echo Becky Lynn. I don’t live in Arizona, but am wondering if there is anyway to get the movie in whatever city we’re in (or one nearby)? Any thoughts?

  • Irina H. F.

    I APOLOGIZE FOR THE LAST COMMENT I LEFT ABOVE! I looked at the theatres wrong, there IS one near where I live. My advice to ALL rebelutionaries:print off the theatre listing, and use a ruler to read each and every line. Then, highlight the areas that are closest to where you live. God bless!

  • idk how to find where it is near me. =( help anyone?

  • katelyn

    I can’t wait o see it; I live in Canton, GA and it is coming to our local theater!!

  • Lydia, go to the post above and click where it says “click here” in red, then you can see the listings.

  • Daniel

    Hey guys, i’m reading your book now so far it’s awesome! are you guys going to tour in Canada this summer or in the future summers?

  • heyyyy thanks joanna!!!! =) *hugs*

  • :O i just looked and they don’t have any near me at all!!!!! none listed for VT or NH…. ='(

  • Sarah

    I am sooo excited for John and his crew, but also somewhat worried. I am afraid that the movie critics are going to make fun of him and homeschoolers. Don’t get me wrong, I watched “The Widow’s Might” and enjoyed it very much, but I was also looking at it already knowing that it was made by a small group in their beginning stages of filmmaking. But most people are just going to watch this movie and make fun of it. They will look at it and say “Is this the best homeschoolers can do?” not even taking into consideration that this is his first attempt.

  • sarah… greatest form of support: prayer.. =)

  • By the way everyone- I just made a group on Facebook called “Prayer and Mutual Support for the crew of “A Widow’s Might”!” Please join if you would like to show your support there. =) I hope this was an ok place to announce this. =)

    Love in Christ,


  • Katherine H.

    There is not one in Dallas TX? That is very surprising. I will not be able to go unfortunately

  • Is it going to be available on DVD?

  • Rebecca

    Oh I hope it comes to D.C.! I will alert the troops and we will have to get some friends and family to go to see it if it comes to our area!

  • Sarah

    I agree Lydia. I will definitely be praying for them.

  • @Katie Nelson – Yes, it will be on DVD sometime in the future, I think they are planning on a summer DVD release, but it is all subject to change. :-)

  • Noella

    Praise God!

    I have this movie and it is excellent!

    May God continue to be glorified through The Widow’s Might.

  • Noella


    It’s already on DVD. Check out their website.

  • Riley

    It looks like a really good movie, I’ll definatly have to check it out

  • Rachel

    I wish it was coming out on Kauai, I soo want to see it.

  • Amazing!
    I want to see THAT!

  • Rose

    I am going to try to get my family to go and see it. Also I will tell my friends. I’m from Texas too, and we like to support our felllow Texans.

  • anne

    I just got the DVD in the mail on Tuesday! I hope to watch it soon! It must be GOOD if it beat Fierproof!

  • Olivia I.G. Carbone

    I can’t wait to tell others about this! My mother downloaded the movie from and we all loved it!

  • Hi, i am reading your book and love it… It kind of inspired me to start my own blog just with my thoughts as a teenager looking at the stresses and other things teenagers have.. thanks for the inspiration,

  • Hannah Michelle

    This is fantastic! The movie looks top-notch and I’m eager to see it. Not quite close enough in a theater, but hopefully we can be a support by buying the DVD.

  • Grace Brennan

    Well, even though it’s not close to me, :( I gave some friends of mine a heads up, since it’ll be in their area. See, I’m not completely useless. 😉

  • Beka

    Looks like a great movie! It isn’t playing anywhere in my state (NY) though:( When can I get it on DVD?

  • Karen

    Sounds awesome! And it’s playing near me! I’m really REALLY going to try to go with some family and friends! Thanks for sharing!

  • Seth K.

    Wow! I’ll definitely see it…once it’s screened on Mexico if ever that happens. Guess I’ll have to wait for the DVD. Good job, John!

  • A must-see movie, people! John Moore has done a FANTASTIC job with the cinematography in this movie and has provided a flick that EVERYONE in the family can watch with no worries. I had the opportunity this year to attend the San Antonio Independent Film Festival. There I watched Moore and co. receive the 101,000 dollar prize money for best film and an overwhelming majority of the audiences votes. Join me in supporting this god-honoring, epistomologically self-conscious movie; it will be worth the ten dollars!

  • Allison

    Oh… I wish so badly that they could have it in San Anotnio! Does anyone know if there is a way for you to request a movie to come to your city???

  • Tabitha

    I’m going to try to go see it on the 14th. Because of the distance I’ll have to travel and the show times and being in college, that’s the only showing I’ll have a chance of making. I hope this does really well and the message spreads! Young people can do big things!

  • Jennifer

    wow!!! sounds like a great movie. im upset that its not showing anywhere around where i live. ( in ohio) we are pretty far away from everything lol. id really like to see it. i pray it does well!!!!! God bless!!!

  • Katy Brown

    Can’t wait to see it! I live in NC so I thankfully only have about an hour drive to one theater where it will be shown! Looks like it goes great with Do Hard Things!

  • Note to everyone: I just realized that the list of theaters that the movie will be at is three pages. Make sure to scroll down!

  • Ken

    I just checked the website and get directed to a page that says the Account has been suspended.

  • Hi every body I’m Will from washington I was at the saIcff this was a great movie.

    P.S come cheek out my blog.

  • I thought you all might be interested to know that just released an interview they conducted with John Moore at the film academy.


  • Mr. Geoff Botkin (I believe) said this is a groundbreaking film in Christian filmmaking, and I agree with him. This is the best independent Christian film I have ever seen (although it ties with Fireproof). If you can go see this film, do try to go see it.


  • Ginny

    Are they going to put it out on film? It looks like such a good movie but it isn’t coming anywhere near where I live.

  • Jennifer

    its not coming anywhere near me but, it sounds like a great movie i would love to see it!!! i hope it comes out on dvd!!!

  • Hannah

    i havent heard of this move, but it looks really good! They have not had any other commercials about it, is it from the people who made fireproof and facing the giants?

  • Man, it’s not showing in my state! Bummer. Looks like a great movie–I’m going to have to keep an eye out for the DVD.

  • Josiah

    Looks good.
    Just like Hannah, I’ll keep my eye open for the DVD.


  • Karen

    I went to see it this afternoon and it was AWESOME!!!!!! way to go John & co!!!!

  • I’m hoping to convince my parents that it’s worthwhile setting foot in a movie theater for this. :-) In any case, I know we’ll be getting the DVD.

  • I can’t wait to see this!

    Yes, it will be coming out on DVD in July.

  • Amanda

    wish it was coming where I live hope it does great in theater tho :)

  • We just went last night and it was fabulous! I highly recommend it!

  • Summer

    wow! it looks like a great movie i hope i could see it

  • Amanda Howell

    We just purchased the movie yesterday and sat down to watch tonight. It was incredible! The music and vocals were amazing and to think it was spearheaded by a 19 year old! Thumbs up to the film and all those that put so much effort into making it come about:-)
    God Bless!

  • Alexandra Rose

    I just went to see it! The singing was wonderful, the message was clear, the scenery was beautiful, the acting was top-rate!

    My only complaint was that the characters lacked diversity and development. If you heard someone say a sentence, you couldn’t attach it to exactly one individual from the film. You couldn’t say, “Oh, that’s Caroline” or “Only Bill would say something like that” They were all maybe a little too “like-minded”. They had no individual character traits, and they didn’t develop. No one changed, no one progressed, no one fell behind.

    But all that might have been cut out due to time restrictions. And none of it was so horrible to make me not recommend it highly to my friends an relatives! On the whole it was a wonderful movie and well worth investing in!

  • Summer

    It came out alredy? Wow! I did not know that.

  • Chloe

    Wow! This movie looks great! God has surely blessed these people with wonderful gifts and talents

  • Traffic Mayhem- Genuinely definitely very good website publish which has got me considering. I never looked at this from your point of view.

  • Sofia

    This looks great!

  • Danny

    Hey, anyone know if it’s out in England? You’re saying you can buy it on DVD now as well? Cool, I’ve got fireproof and it’s prequel, facing the giants, on DVD ATM and they’re great 😀
