    For audiences worldwide, no person has delivered the message of God with more power and dedication than Billy Graham. He has preached the gospel to more people than anyone else in history, and with a lifetime audience of over 2.2 billion, he is considered a hero and a genuine icon of the 20th century. A beacon of hope during some of America’s darkest days, he continues to inspire millions with his message of God’s love. But before Billy Graham became a household name, a confidante to Presidents, and was embraced as America’s Pastor, he was simply known as Billy.

    Billy: The Early Years presents a rare glimpse into the life of the young Billy Graham before he went on to change the face of modern Evangelism, and chronicles his meteoric rise from an ordinary young man to one of the most influential preachers the world has ever known. Billy: The Early Years was directed by veteran Actor / Director and Golden Globe® nominee Robby Benson (Beast in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Ode To Billy Joe, Ice Castles, The Greatest Story Ever Told).

    Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger, Veronica Mars, Flicka), who plays an incredibly authentic Graham, takes the viewer deep into the heart of the man. From his humble beginnings on the Graham family’s dairy farm, we join Billy on his journey to spread the word of the lord. Billy: The Early Years includes such Hollywood luminaries as Academy Award® winner Martin Landau (Ed Wood, “Entourage”), Lindsay Wagner (“The Bionic Woman”), Stefanie Butler (“CSI: NY”) and Grammy Award® nominated country music sensation Josh Turner.

    The motion picture soundtrack was produced by John Carter Cash, son of the legendary Johnny and June Carter Cash, and Anastasia Brown (August Rush), and features a host of great artists such as Michael W. Smith, Sara Evans, Alan Jackson, Patty Griffin, Josh Turner, Brad Paisley and Roy Orbison.

    In today’s uncertain world, faith-based films are in demand more than ever before. Hot on the heels of the commercial successes of Left Behind and Fire Proof, Billy: The Early Years brings for the first time the uplifting and dramatic true story of Billy Graham’s early life in a major motion picture. This profoundly moving film charts his remarkable spiritual journey and vividly etches a compelling portrait of Billy the man. Billy: The Early Years was awarded The Dove’s Family Seal of Approval making it suitable for all ages.

    “This film will make you thankful for the life of Billy Graham,” proclaims the Dove Foundation.

    Mary Graham, President of Women of Faith, states, “Finally, someone has made the kind of family-friendly film we’ve been asking for!”

    The Movie Reporter calls it “Downright Entertaining!”

    In addition to this inspiring film, the DVD includes an exclusive 2009 sermon recorded by Billy Graham, the behind-the-scenes documentary chronicling the creation of Billy: The Early Years, a photo gallery, theatrical trailer and the DVD trailer.
