Promenade Pictures has partnered with GodTube, one of the fastest growing video websites in the U.S., to promote the upcoming theatrical release of its epic CG-animated feature, The Ten Commandments. Slated to hit theaters nationwide on Oct. 19, the movie is the first entry in Promenade’s planned twelve-film ‘Epic Stories of the Bible’ series.
GodTube will help promote the pic with exclusive editorial content from Promenade, an integrated marketing campaign, streaming video elements and tie-ins with the film’s offline marketing programs. Specific elements of the campaign include live web chats with popular Christian singer and performer Jeremy Camp, special chat rooms designed and dedicated to the movie, national advance ticket sales promotions with Fandango, a new social networking site built around the film, and special Ten Commandments live events in select locations.
With narration by Academy Award winner Sir Ben Kingsley, The Ten Commandments features the voices of Christian Slater (Moses), Alfred Molina (Ramses) and Oscar nominee Elliott Gould (God). The film is directed by Bill Boyce (Hermie & Friends) and John Stronach (Ben Hur, Cahoots) from a screenplay by Ed Naha (Honey, I Shrunk the Kids).
‘Epic Stories of the Bible’ is a fully-funded brand for Promenade Pictures. Each film will be produced by Promenade along with its partners, New Zealand’s Huhu Studios and Singapore’s iVL Animation (owned by ST Electronics). Promenade will market and distribute all of the films theatrically in the U.S. while retaining worldwide rights.
