David A.R. White, co-founder of Pure Flix (www.pureflix.com), announced today that the company’s action-packed feature film BECKMAN will officially release on Digital and DVD on September 22, 2020 via Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. To celebrate the film’s release, Pure Flix will host an in-person world premiere event on for September 21, 2020 at the Universal Hilton Hotel at Universal Studios Hollywood. THIS IS AN OUTDOOR EVENT.
“We are enormously proud that our film is being released in the home through Universal Pictures Home Entertainment . The movie is action packed and audiences will surely love it,” White said. “We are elated that we can have a world premiere event to formally introduce ‘Beckman’ to the world.”
Filled with “high octane action, story and faith” ( Movieguide), BECKMAN follows the journey of a gun-for-hire named Aaron Beckman who lives in the shadows. Desperation leads him on a journey of rage, revenge, chaos and ultimately — redemption.
White said the Universal Hilton Hotel premiere event will follow all CDC and Los Angeles County COVID-19 safety guidelines and protocols.
“A small group of the stars of the film and executives will be socially-distanced, and will be wearing masks and lots of sanitizer and getting temp checks,” he said. “The media covering the red carpet will also be socially-distanced on the press line, wearing masks as well.”
White praised the power of cinema amid the ongoing struggles posed by COVID-19, and expressed his excitement over the September 21 world premiere event.
“We are blessed for those of us in front of and behind the camera to get to continue our craft of making movies that give us an escape to some of the things the world is going through,” he said. “For those 90 minutes we are able to forget what we are going through and just immerse ourselves in a movie that is unfolding before us. We’re reminded about the original excitement of going to the cinema. I’m grateful to be part of this, and that we can still celebrate all of the hard work that goes into making a movie.
AARON BECKMAN (White) is ﬁnished – done with a life lived in the shadows as a cruel gun for hire. Now, his soul cries out for healing, peace, forgiveness, and grace. In desperation, he appeals to the church and is welcomed by an ailing pastor (Fahey) like a long-lost son. However, his journey towards salvation is cut short when his adopted daughter is kidnapped by a deranged cult leader named Reese (Baldwin). Blinded by rage, Beckman sets off on a dangerous rescue mission and is forced to revert back to his old violent ways. The only thing that may be able to stop Beckman’s rampage is his faith – but will he remember it in time to save his soul?
