Dove-Approved Family Film ‘Future TX’ Due in Theaters March 10, Via On Demand April 18 From Level 33

Level 33 Entertainment will release the Dove-approved (for 12-plus), family sci-fi adventure Future TX in theaters exclusively in Arizona, California, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Tennessee and Virginia starting March 10 and via on demand April 18. 

An original high concept adventure — described as taking inspiration from the classic British sci-fi sensibility of “Doctor Who” and “Back to the Future” — taps into the question that a lot of kids have: Is my future already determined?

In the film, when a couple of tweens get their first cell phones, the phones ring at the same time. A mystery man (caller display “Future TX”) says he’s from the future and needs the kids’ help.

Future TX is written, directed and produced by Tim Clague and Danny Stack, the team known for family films and the kids’ TV series “Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg?,” and features British comedy star Griff Rhys Jones, who takes on a dual role in the film, playing twins, one a crazy scientist, the other the scheming villain.

Drama ‘When We Last Spoke’ Due on DVD June 1 From MVD

The drama When We Last Spoke will be issued on DVD June 1 from the MVD Entertainment Group.

The Dove-approved film follows sisters Juliet (Darby Camp) and Evangeline (Chandler Head), who in 1967 are abandoned by their mother at their unsuspecting grandparents’ farm in the small Southern town of Fireside.

Stunned by their sudden arrival, the grandparents — tender-hearted Walt (Corbin Bernsen) and champion fiddler Ruby (Melissa Gilbert) — graciously stand in for the missing parents and create a loving family.

The story is punctuated by the unexpected appearance of Walt’s ailing mother — eccentric, Emily Dickinson-quoting Itasca (the late Cloris Leachman).
