WHAT: BEYOND THE MASK is a sweeping action-and-adventure film with all the thrills and special effects required to capture today’s moviegoers and a message of grace, redemption and hope to capture hearts. Distributed by Gathr’s on-demand platform, BEYOND THE MASK opens with a record-setting on-demand box office this week with 50,000 pre-sold tickets in 360 theaters across the country.

WHO: From Director Chad Burns and Producer Aaron Burns, the up-and-coming cousin team of faith filmmakers at Burns Family Studios, with a script co-written by Stephen Kendrick (COURAGEOUS, FIREPROOF). Starring Andrew Cheney (SEASONS OF GRAY) and Kara Killmer (Chicago Fire) and John Rhys-Davies (KILLING JESUS, RETURN TO THE HIDING PLACE, THE LORD OF THE RINGS).

WHEN: BEYOND THE MASK debuts in theaters nationwide Monday, April 6

SYNOPSIS: The leading mercenary for the British East India Company, Will Reynolds, has just been double-crossed and now is on the run in the American colonies. Working to redeem his name and win back the affections of the woman with whom he’s never been fully truthful, Will now hides behind a new mask in hopes of thwarting his former employer. As his past life closes in on him, Will must somehow gain the trust and the help of his beloved Charlotte—as well as Ben Franklin—while he races against time to defuse a plot of historical proportions. BEYOND THE MASK is a revolutionary new family film that brings history to life in a faith-filled adventure celebrating grace, liberty and the true freedom that can only be found in Christ.

NEWS HOOKS: New Ground for Faith Films—Action Adventure
From GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY to THE AVENGERS, action and adventure owns the box office. At the same time, the faith-and-family film genre reaches new levels of quality and impact each year. Now, from Burns Family Studios, comes BEYOND THE MASK, a faith-and-family action and adventure film. Epic in scope. Intimate in character. Eye-popping in special effects. Inspiring in its message of grace, forgiveness, hope and love. Talk to the Burns cousins about this bold move.

From Homeschool to Silver Screen
Stories have become common of homeschooled kids—even whole families of children—earning admission to top colleges. How about a pair of home-schooled cousins making theatrical films? And not just any films. Chad and Aaron Burns are breaking barriers by taking faith-and-family filmmaking into the action and adventure arena.

Filmmaking as a Family Affair
Take a look at the crew credits for BEYOND THE MASK and you’ll find quite a few names ending in “Burns.” No coincidence. What started as a project for a couple of families who home-schooled their nine children has turned into a rising force in faith-and-family filmmaking. Talk to cousins Chad and Aaron Burns about the birth and growth of Burns Family Studios.

Democratic Distribution Model
It’s the age of “people power.” More and more individuals hold the keys to what they watch, what they listen to, what news they read. And now . . . to what films come to their local theaters. Working with Gathr, Burns Family Studios releases its latest faith-and-family action-adventure film BEYOND THE MASK democratically.  Individuals in local communities have become theater “captains” to bring the film into more than 364 theaters nationwide opening week, a record for on-demand distribution.
