It took two years but the DVD release of the movie “The Genesis Code” finally hit store shelves this week.
The film, shot two years ago in Grand Rapids, mixes science and religion as it tells the story of a college hockey player and a female journalism student as they try to find common ground.
The drama stars Logan Bartholomew, Kelsey Sanders, C.R. Lewis and Ernest Borgnine.
“The Genesis Code” was directed by C. Thomas Howell and Patrick Read Johnson and was written by Michael W. Leighton.
The 135-minute movie has been bouncing around the theater circuit for the last year and was shown in 15 states, said Jerry Zandstra, president of American Epic Entertainment, who was the force behind the film.
“We were pretty happy with that, but we are really happy now that it’s coming out in DVD,” he added.
The movie is available online at thegenesiscodemovie.com.
And it can also be found in Christian retailers across the U.S. and Canada including Family Christian Stores.
“Then it hits box retailers like Wal-Mart and Target on May 8,” he said. “This is great news for a Michigan made movie.”
