Breakthrough Star Chrissy Metz Takes Us Behind the Scenes

Based on an incredible true story of how one mom prayed her dying son back to life, Breakthrough is a family-friendly movie coming to Digital, Blu-ray, and DVD this July.

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment presents this faith-filled, real-life drama, starring Chrissy Metz (This Is Us) and Josh Lucas (Sweet Home Alabama).  From the producer who brought us Miracles from Heaven, Breakthrough offers a story of hope that will inspire your entire family.

"When Joyce Smith’s (Metz) adopted son John (Marcel Ruiz) falls through an icy Missouri lake, all hope seems lost as John lies lifeless. In the face of every bleak medical case history and dire scientific prediction, Joyce’s unwavering belief inspires her community to pray for John’s recovery. Based on the incredible true story, Breakthrough is an enthralling reminder that faith and love can create a mountain of hope, and sometimes even a miracle."

Watch this special behind-the-scenes clip of Chrissy Metz and Josh Lucas on the set of Breakthrough:

This Christ-centered story has appeal beyond the Church as well. Just ask Bilge Ebiri. In his New York Times review of Breakthrough, he writes: "You don't have to believe in divine intervention to be moved by this story."

Watch the official trailer for Breakthrough:

According to a studio news release, Breakthrough Producer DeVon Franklin says that this "home entertainment release gives us an opportunity to showcase some of the incredible footage grabbed on set that we couldn’t include in the theatrical experience. We included deleted scenes and bonus features with never-before-seen footage with cast and crew shot during the film’s production."

Look for this highly rated new film on Digital (releasing July 2), Blu-ray and DVD (arriving on July 16).
