New Movie from Producers of '180'

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 26, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Ray Comfort, the producer of the award-winning "180" has made a new movie that is simply called "Genius." Comfort said, "After '180' was viewed by millions, we kept being asked if we were going to make something similar. I wasn't too enthusiastic because I didn't think we could top it. But now that we have finished "Genius," I think it will be much bigger, because of the unique subject matter."
"Genius" gives insight into the life of John Lennon, and according to Ken Mansfield (the ex-U.S. Apple manager for the Beatles) "[It] will open your eyes." Reviewers of the pre-release are giving it two thumbs up. Best-selling author, Randy Alcorn, said it is "Fast-paced, thought-provoking and compelling." World Net Daily's Joseph Farah responded with, "You have outdone yourself!" while Ted Baehr of Movieguide called it "An entertaining and challenging and wonder."
Comfort, added that he was amazed to discover that the Beatles aren't simply a rock group from a by-gone era, but that they are appealing to a new generation. "They have sold more than 2,303,500,000 record albums, and in June of 2012 they hit number one on iTunes." Many believe that John Lennon was a musical genius, "But" Comfort noted, "'Genius' goes deeper than just looking at the brilliance of the murdered singer. It reveals the chilling reality that we are surrounded by people who would kill for money." It will be released on December 7th to coincide with the Dec 8th anniversary of John Lennon's death.
