Shack Trailer Released Today

It’s been a long time coming.  I’ve been watching over Brad’s shoulder for some time as this entire movie project has unfolded. It has been a long and arduous task and it is so rewarding to see the first fruits of that work come in the form of pictures (above) and today, finally, the first official trailer for The Shack movie was released.

View the trailer here!

You can see other pictures and keep up with all the action at the official website or Facebook Page.

The movie releases worldwide on March 3. For those in the Southern California area, we are planning on having a special showing in Thousand Oaks, California for anyone who would like to see the movie with Brad and I. We’re going to rent the theater and have opportunity for some conversation after the movie for those who want. It will either be on February 25 if we can get permission for an advance showing, or on March 4. We’re planning on a Saturday afternoon showing around 4:00 though we still have to arrange details. When we’ll do we will provide a way for you to sign up if interested so we know how large a theater to rent. We’ll keep you posted.

For now, enjoy the preview!

    Incredible, amazing.
    My sister-in-law attempted suicide last night, i have sent this off to all the loved ones as an encouragement of the hope we have in Jesus.

      I’m so sorry, Martin about your sister-in-law. I pray she gets the help she needs to sort through her pain and praying that God will show up right in the middle of all she’s experiencing and make himself known as a truly loving Father for her and the safest place for her to fall…. Blessings and love.

    That looks fantastic. I think I need to read the book again now, too.

    Thanks for sharing this with us. Can’t wait until March!! This looks so good…can’t wait to see it and share the experience with others. The Shack was one of the first books that really opened my eyes to viewing Father in a
    different way so I can’t wait until the movie brings it all to life on the screen.

    I can’t tell you how excited I am. I have read this book four or five times.

    Great. They finally got it right!!!! (the trailer, I mean). Super!!!

  12. […] The Shack movie will be out March 3, and it will give people a lot to think about as they process that story and God in their own lives. And we are well into the process of adapting Jake’s story in So You Don’t Want to Go to Church Anymore for a big-screen movie, tentatively titled Out of the Game. The movie focuses on the religious game Jake doesn’t even know he’s playing by serving his own need to gain approval from others. Though an encounter with a mysterious man who is living in more freedom than Jake has ever known his life begins to change. As it comes unraveled he has to choose between the false security of his past, or the risk of finding God is better than he ever dreamed. We made some changes in the story, but not to its meaning and I’m thrilled that we’ll have a chance to re-tell this story to a wider audience. […]

    Oh my! How soon will the movie get to Nigeria in Africa?

    • Wayne Jacobsen December 19, 2016 at 9:55 am

      I have no idea. That depends on the studio and we don’t have that information.
