'Father Stu' Christian Movie Released Good Friday with Mark Wahlberg

Be reminded that God will never give up on you as you watch the inspiring trailer for ‘Father Stu.’ Based on a true story, ‘Father Stu’ stars Mark Wahlberg, Mel Gibson, Jacki Weaver and Teresa Ruiz. On the official website, the film is described as “an unflinchingly honest, funny and ultimately uplifting drama about a lost soul who finds his purpose in a most unexpected place.” 

Mark Wahlberg plays Stuart Long, or Father Stu, a former boxer taken out of the sport by injury. Now, he spends his days making ends meet as a cashier at the supermarket while pursing a career in Hollywood. Then, “he meets Carmen (Teresa Ruiz), a Catholic Sunday school teacher who seems immune to his bad-boy charm. Determined to win her over, the longtime agnostic starts going to church to impress her.”

Just as things seem to be looking up for Stuart, a motorcycle accident threatens to change everything. The movie follows the inspirational story, one that really resonated with lead Mark Wahlberg. 

He told Fox News, "I just knew that I needed to make this movie, and this was my calling and this was my mission. And, now, it's needed more than ever."

While the real Father Stu passed away in 2014, his legacy continues to live on in the many lives that he touched throughout the years. And now, millions of people around the world will learn of this incredible man and priest. 

‘Father Stu’ will open exclusively in theaters on April 15, 2022.
