‘Heaven is for Real’ movie to be released at Easter PDF Print E-mail
Written by Jan Schultz, The Imperial Republican   

Clips from the “Heaven is for Real” movie that Todd Burpo has seen represent Imperial, Neb., “very positively.”

Burpo, who along with co-author Lynn Vincent wrote the New York Times #1 best-selling book about his son Colton’s heavenly experience, said that makes him breathe a little easier.

“How Imperial is presented is very positive. It makes our way of life here desirable,” he said.

Excitement is building for the release of the movie based on Burpo’s book published three years ago. Sales of the original book are nearing 8 million copies.

“Heaven is for Real,” the movie, will be in theaters Wednesday, April 16, 2014, during Easter week.

The film’s trailer, those short clips shown in theaters before the featured movie, was released last week and is also getting rave reviews.

“People who looked at the trailer are saying, ‘Wow,’” Burpo said Tuesday.

People can view the trailer at:

The two-minute, 45-second trailer begins with young Colton’s question to his mother, “Did you know I have a sister?”

That question and some further revelations from 4-year-old Colton started the Imperial family wondering about his near-death experience in 2003.
