Sponsoring "The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry"

Due to the success of Fireproof, there is great momentum right now for Christian films.

Five & Two Pictures is happy to present "The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry," a new film coming to theaters Sept 18th that is getting great reviews and will be an outreach ministry to your community.

It's the story of a 75 year old man, Jonathan Sperry (played by Gavin MacLeod) living in 1970,
who starts mentoring three 12 year old boys. We believe this inspiring, heartfelt movie can motivate all who see it. This film has something for everyone from ages 8 to 80.

We have a very unique marketing plan to help us get the word out. We are working with churches and groups across the nation and having them sponsor the film locally in their theaters. If churches will help us do some local grass roots marketing, the film could play in theaters for weeks. Also,
each sponsor will participate in the revenue from the theater they sponsor which makes this a win-win for everyone.  Currently, we have about 100 churches/groups already on board!

First, we encourage you to watch the trailer on the official website at www.sperrymovie.com.

Next, if you would like information on how your group may sponsor this film, e-mail us at contact@sperrymovie.com or call 949-380-8550.  We will send you a copy of the film to preview before you make your decision!

It is time to go on the offensive for the gospel. Instead of complaining about what Hollywood offers, let's put forth an entertaining alternative that shares the love of Christ in an inspiring way that also makes an impact on the culture. Let's keep the momentum going.

i liked the trailer. we all want to go back to the good-old-70s and I guess this is the movie that will take me back with Christ as the center of the movie! I've been tired traveling back to 70s with folks in Hollywood, it's about a time to go back with the true master our Lord Jesus Christ and realize the true meaning of our good-old 70s!
