We’re less than two weeks away from the big one-night debut of Focus’ first feature film, “Irreplaceable,” so I figured it was as a good time as any to buy my family’s tickets to watch the movie.

 So I logged on to, clicked “buy tickets” and entered my zip code – and can you believe that my local theater was already sold out?

We’ve heard similar stories from people across the country whose nearest cinema didn’t have any more empty seats. They’re contacting us and asking how they can watch the film.

Our answer? Call your theater and ask for an encore presentation! We’ve heard of several cinemas that are accommodating such requests after seeing the strong interest in “Irreplaceable.”

I am so encouraged by the response the movie is receiving. Not just are theaters selling out, but trusted names in the Christian world like Dave Ramsey, Russell Moore, and Gary Thomas are eagerly supporting our documentary.

More than anything, however, I’m looking forward to seeing how God will use “Irreplaceable” in the lives of those who watch it. Anytime you declare God’s truth and the principles He set into motion, the Holy Spirit is bound to do something big.

We believe this project, which was birthed through prayer and lots of counsel, will be used to ignite a movement of families determined to live intentionally for the Lord.

We are praying this film will equip believers to be confident in standing for God’s design for family.

We are hoping “Irreplaceable” will equip Christians to more effectively communicate why they believe what they do.

Please join us on May 6. Group sales are available, so please consider making a trip to watch “Irreplaceable” part of a church or small group event. Don’t wait until your cinema is sold out.

If you can, please consider buying out a theater and invite your family, friends and community to view the film.

Most of all, don’t stop praying for us as we head into this final stretch before the movie’s debut.
