Oregon Faith News Note,
The Mormon based film, ‘Saratov Approach’ may prove to be the first Mormon blockbuster film. According to Variety Magazine, the independent film has grossed a half million dollars on only 23 screens in just two weeks. That is a great sign of a small film netting big rewards. The surge is primarily occurring in Mormon screening areas in Utah, but provides a great launching point for wider release. The film is based on a compelling real-life story in 1988 of Mormon missionaries, Travis Tuttle & Andrew Propst, who were kidnapped, tortured and held hostage in Saratov, Russia. Below is the trailer for the film Saratov Approach.
