The film deals with Mexicos so called "Cristero War,” which broke out in 1926. The war was fueled by religious persecution, but people fought back, hence the name "Cristeros” for Christ.

The film is directed by Dean Wright who worked on big name films like The Chronicles of Narnia and Lord of the Rings. In the US it will be released on June 1st.

In fact, a preview of the movie was shown at World Youth Day in Madrid.  Also Mexicos former president, Vicente Fox, recently saw the film after showing interest in the project. As far as production costs, the movie  "For Greater Glory,” is the most expensive in Mexicos history.
