First Trailer and Poster for HEAVEN IS FOR REAL Starring Greg Kinnear and Kelly Reilly TriStar Pictures has released the first trailer for director Randall Wallace’s adaptation of the Todd Burpo book Heaven Is for Real. The faith-based film revolves around a young boy who, after a near-death experience, begins recounting his time in heaven with facts that stun his family and friends. While most Christian-centered films are relegated to tiny budgets and unrecognizable faces both in front of and behind the camera, Heaven Is for Real boasts an impressive ensemble led by Greg Kinnear that includes Kelly Reilly (Flight), Thomas Haden Church, and Margo Martindale, and Wallace was behind the screenplay for Braveheart and most recently directed the uplifting horse racing story Secretariat.

Heaven Is For Real Synopsis and Credits

Based on the #1 New York Times best-selling book of the same name, HEAVEN IS FOR REAL brings to the screen the true story of a small-town father who must find the courage and conviction to share his son’s extraordinary, life-changing experience with the world. The film stars Academy Award® nominee and Emmy® award winning actor Greg Kinnear as Todd Burpo and co-stars Kelly Reilly as Sonja Burpo, the real-life couple whose son Colton (newcomer Connor Corum) claims to have visited Heaven during a near death experience. Colton recounts the details of his amazing journey with childlike innocence and speaks matter-of-factly about things that happened before his birth... things he couldn't possibly know.
