War Room is a 2015 American Christian drama film directed by Alex Kendrick and produced by his brother Stephen Kendrick. War Room is the Kendrick brothers’ fifth film project. Their first four films, Flywheel (2003), Facing the Giants (2006), Fireproof (2008), and Courageous (2011), were produced under Sherwood Pictures. War Room was their first film project through Kendrick Brothers Productions, as they left Sherwood Pictures in 2013 but continued to minister and remain active in their church. Provident Films, AFFIRM Films and TriStar Pictures partnered with the Kendrick brothers to release the film.

Regarding the title of the film, director Kendrick says “We called it ‘War Room’ because, like the military, we should seek God for the right strategy before going into combat. By combat, I mean daily issues we face in our culture.”

No Escape is a 2015 American action thriller film directed by John Erick Dowdle, who co-wrote the screenplay with his brother, Drew Dowdle. The film stars Owen Wilson, Lake Bell, and Pierce Brosnan, and tells the story of a businessman trapped with his family in a war zone.
