LOS ANGELES, CA (August 21, 2012) - ARC Entertainment announces that FOR GREATER GLORY debuts on Video-on Demand (VOD), DVD and Blu-ray on Sept. 11. Released in theaters on June 1, the epic action film earned more than $5.6 million at the domestic box office.

FOR GREATER GLORY will arrive in stores and online retailers with suggested retail prices of $26.99 for the DVD, $32.99 for the Blu-Ray and $32.99 for the DVD/Blu-ray combo pack.

The film follows the true story of the 1920s Cristero War - the daring people's revolt that rocked 20th Century North America. Directed by Dean Wright and produced by Pablo Jose Barroso, FOR GREATER GLORY stars Academy Award® nominee Andy Garcia, Golden Globe winner Eva Longoria, Oscar® winner Peter O'Toole, rising star Oscar Isaac (DRIVE), recording star and actor Ruben Blades (SAFE HOUSE), Bruce Greenwood (STAR TREK, SUPER 8), Nestor Carbonell (THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, "Lost"), Bruce McGill (LINCOLN), Santiago Cabrera ("Heroes," CHE), Oscar®-nominated Catalina Sandino Moreno (MARIA FULL OF GRACE) and Eduardo Verástegui (BELLA). It introduces teenager Mauricio Kuri, who plays Cristero martyr Blessed José Sanchez del Rio.

Catholic leaders have praised FOR GREATER GLORY for its message and production values.

"FOR GREATER GLORY is a top-flight production whose message of the importance of religious freedom has particular resonance for us today," said Most Rev. José Horacio Gomez, Archbishop of Los Angeles. "It is my earnest hope that people of faith throughout our country will rally behind "For Greater Glory," and in doing so, will highlight the importance of religious freedom in our society."

"FOR GREATER GLORY is 'must-see' viewing for all those who care about faith and liberty today," said Knights of Columbus Supreme Knight Carl Anderson.

"The power of this film is matched only by the timeliness of its message," said CatholicVote.org President Brian Burch.

"Every person of faith should draw courage from the tragically heroic witness of the Cristeros," said Fr. Andrew Small, National Director of the Pontifical Mission Societies. "Their sacrifice reminds us that unless we learn from history, we risk repeating it. Besides being an important movie, it is extremely well done."

About the film

What price would you pay for freedom? In FOR GREATER GLORY, an impassioned group of men and women each make the decision to risk it all for family, faith and the very future of their country. General Gorostieta (Garcia), the retired military man who at first thinks he has nothing personal at stake, and his wife (Longoria) watch Mexico fall into a violent civil war. Yet the man who hesitates in joining the cause will soon become the resistance's most inspiring and self-sacrificing leader, as he begins to see the cost of religious persecution on his countrymen . . . and transforms a rag-tag band of rebels into a heroic force to be reckoned with. The General faces impossible odds against a powerful and ruthless government. Yet it's those he meets on the journey - youthful idealists, feisty renegades and, most of all, one remarkable teenager named Jose - who reveal to him how courage and belief are forged even when justice seems lost.
