‘This is Us’ Chrissy Metz Stars in Upcoming Faith-Based Film

Miracles still happen. That is the message of the faith-based film, Breakthrough starring This is Us’ Chrissy Metz. Based on Joyce Smith’s book, The Impossible: The Miraculous Story of a Mother's Faith and Her Child's Resurrection, Breakthrough tells the true story of an event that happened just four years ago.

Metz plays Smith whose 14-year-old son falls through the ice of a Missouri lake. He was trapped under water for 15 minutes and even after he was rescued, he had no pulse for 43 minutes. All seemed lost and Smith was told to come in and say her goodbyes to her son as there was no hope for the boy. But Smith refused to give up and continued to pray for her son’s complete recovery, even in the face of every case history and scientific prediction. Not only did her son come back to life, but he is alive today telling his story.

Directed by Roxann Dawson and produced by DeVon Franklin (Miracles from Heaven), Breakthrough also stars Josh Lucas, Topher Grace, Mike Colter…

Star Wars-Themed fashion shows.

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens being perhaps Disney’s biggest movie ever, the company is doing all kinds of crazy stunts to get the word out (as if we needed to know) about this new film. Just last week, stars of ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder gave their “real” and “unscripted” opinions about the movie and how similar it will be to their TV show (seriously) during commercial breaks. “It … looks … so … good!” squealed Aja Naomi King during one of the breaks. 

Today, more bizarre news comes from the House of Mouse that Disney Consumer Products and Bloomingdale's are joining “forces” by bringing a group of designers to create some Star Wars-themed high fashion outfits that will be auctioned off for charity.

“This collaboration celebrates the distinctive synergy between film and fashion in the run up to an exceptional moment in the history of pop culture. We’re excited to see how this incredible lineup of designers interpret Star Wars characters in unique ways, as well as to raise money for a great cause.” Said Leslie Ferraro, Co-Chair, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media and President, Disney Consumer Products.

The designers who have signed on for the task include: Cynthia Rowley, Diane von Furstenberg, Giles Deacon, Halston, Opening Ceremony, Ovadia & Sons, Parker, Rag & Bone, Timo Weiland and Todd Snyder.

The designers’ looks will be revealed at a “Force 4 Fashion” launch event, presented by Kay Jewelers, in New York City on December 2nd before going on display in Bloomingdale’s NYC flagship windows the following day. Outfits will then be auctioned off December 2-18 by Bloomingdale’s on CharityBuzz.com, with the proceeds benefiting their holiday charity partner, Child Mind Institute, on behalf of Star Wars: Force For Change – a charitable initiative that empowers people to make a positive impact on the world around them.

And if that wasn’t enough, Michael Kaplan, the costume designer for the film, has designed three, limited edition “little brown bag” reusable totes for purchase at Bloomingdale’s just in time for Black Friday shoppers.  For more information about “Force 4 Fashion” please visit StarWars.com and follow the social conversation using the hashtag #Force4Fashion.
