Same Kind of Different as Me to be Released October 20
To learn how your mission can have a pre-release red carpet event, please visit www.pureflixevents.com.
AGRM is an official partner with Paramount Pictures on Same Kind of Different as Me. The movie, based on the New York Times best-seller, is the story of a homeless drifter who grew up picking cotton in virtual slavery; an upscale international art dealer accustomed to the world of Armani and Chanel; and a gutsy woman reeling from the wounds of betrayal, who leaned into a dream no novelist would dare to write...except it’s all true.
The movie is painted on the canvas of a gospel rescue mission, with 95 percent of test audiences rating the movie UPBEAT, POSITIVE and APPEALING.
The A-list cast consists of Renée Zellweger and Greg Kinnear, as well as Djimon Hounsou, Olivia Holt, and Jon Voight.
