I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was a little excited about this movie:
Warner Bros. is producing a film about Hillsong United entitled Let Hope Rise [lyrics from one of their popular songs]. Their music and influence has reached a level of popularity that a documentary is going to be released in theaters some time in April of 2015. It will take an account of their journey to popularity from a little youth group band to being one of the most prolific worship bands in the world. Obviously, this is being marketed to christians, but it should be an interesting event in pop culture to see how critics, both christian and non-christian, treat the film as a whole. They seem have to have an edge on the keeping up with the “coolest of cool” in terms of breaking new territory in the christian music and worship genre’s.
Here’s the trailer:
