Quiz question: which A-List global icon has two movies coming out in May?

It’s not Tom Cruise or Angelina Jolie.  It’s not even “The Rock”

Answer:  It’s Pope Francis!!!

The 266th man to hold the Papal reigns is starring in not one, but TWO movies coming out this May.

The first film, BEYOND THE SUN, is a modern-day tale of hope, faith and courage based on stories from the Bible.

Written and directed by Graciela Rodriguez Gilio, BEYOND THE SUN, is the first time a Pope has ever participated and appeared in a movie.  Filmmakers were asked to create cinema that would appeal to children and families, and bring a message of hope, joy, and God’s love to all audiences.  The film is a heartwarming family adventure story of a group of young children that embark on a journey to discover God. 

The film will donate all profits to Los Hogares de Cristo and El Almendro. These charities, close to Pope Francis’ heart, are located in his home-country of Argentina and provide aid to at-risk children and young adults.

The Hollywood Reporter just posted this feature about the film.
