In just a few days, Pure Flix and Paramount Pictures will be bringing Same Kind of Different as Me to theaters across the country. And we need your support. Here’s why.


The Opening Weekend


Opening weekend is a predictor of a film’s success. Those three days, Friday through Sunday, set the stage for what follows. Obviously, if a film does well, the theater will keep it. If it underperforms, theater management will quickly move to replace it with a property that shows more financial promise. But if it exceeds expectations, the buyers at other theaters will add the film to their play week. These are the sleeper hits; the ones that over perform, catching everyone by surprise.


Why We Need You

We believe that Same Kind of Different as Me could be the sleeper hit of the season. And that’s not just us: others are making the same prediction. With the many fans of the New York Times bestseller waiting for this long overdue film adaptation, an all-star cast (Renee Zellweger, Dijon Hounsou, Greg Kinnear, Jon Voight), plus a message of redemption and restoration, and an extraordinary premiere event, all the elements are there. Now we need you to be in the audience!
