Another movie coming from the award-winning brother duo, The Kendricks Brothers, is the release of their blockbuster film “Courageous” with new scenes and a new ending.  

The fourth film ever released by Sherwood Pictures is scheduled to be re-released in theaters this fall. The brothers said viewers “will get to see what happens to many of the characters 10 years later. It’s a new ending with a few surprises!”

“Courageous” was originally released in 2011 and grossed $35.2 million, over 17 times its $2 million budget. 

The Christian film follows Sheriff's Deputy Adam Mitchell (Alex Kendrick) who “endures a terrible personal tragedy that causes him to question what is really important to him. Taking comfort in his religion, Adam vows to become a better parent to his teenage son (Rusty Martin) and convinces his friends on the force to sign a pledge that they will all strive to become better Christians and better parents,” the film synopsis reads. 

The studio re-release will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the film. 

“In September 2011, 'Courageous' was estimated to open at the box office with $1.5 million and it ended the weekend the No. 1 new movie, with $9.4 million in the first frame,” Rich Peluso, executive vice president and head of Affirm Films, shared in a statement. “We are thrilled to bring this incredible story to theaters with new footage, as well as bring to the big screen the Kendrick Brothers’ first documentary.”

Actor and director Alex Kendrick added: “We’re humbled and gratified that 'Courageous' is continuing to make a global impact. The Lord has been graciously using this film all over the world for a decade and we can’t wait to see how the film is received by a new generation of fathers and their families.”
