Inspirational Documentary ‘I’ll Push You’ Debuting in Theaters 11/2 from Fathom Events

“I’ll Push You: The Camino Journey of 500 Miles, Two Best Friends and One Wheelchair” comes to cinemas for one night this November to tell the story of two lifelong friends, Justin Skeesuck and Patrick Gray, embarking on an epic adventure to hike Spain’s El Camino de Santiago (the way of St. James). These two men show audiences the heart of friendship as Patrick pushes Justin, who is fighting a degenerative neuromuscular disease, in a wheelchair along the entire journey.

Fathom Events and Emota Inc., in partnership with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), bring audiences an inspiring one-night event celebrating friendship, endurance, humanity and community to movie theaters nationwide on Thursday, November 2 at 7:30 p.m. local time. Following the screening will be an exclusive panel discussion between Skeesuck, Gray and filmmakers, facilitated by MDA ambassador and Grammy®-nominated and NBC’s “The Voice” star, Billy Gilman.

Tickets for “I’ll Push You: The Camino Journey of 500 Miles, Two Best Friends and One Wheelchair” can be purchased online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in more than 550 select movie theaters nationwide. For a complete list of theater locations visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

“Three years ago, we set out to accomplish this impossible journey,” Skeesuck said. “To have it documented on film was a dream come true, but to finally be able to share it with the world, I’m not sure I have words to adequately describe the joy I feel.”

“To finally have a chance to share our story with so many people is incredible,” Gray said. “We have been blessed to live this life, to be a part of this story. For others to find hope in it is a beautiful and humbling thing.”

Hiking this ancient pilgrimage along the vast terrain is challenging enough for the average person, but Justin and Patrick are far from average. To reach their goal of completing this monumental trek, they will encounter many seemingly insurmountable obstacles and incredible, often amusing, setbacks. While these two friends face various challenges, they come to realize that the greatest rewards of the journey are those of self-discovery, a renewed sense of purpose and a deeper appreciation for community, all of which ultimately redefine the meaning of the phrase, “I’ll push you.”

“This event features an incredible, self-sacrificial friendship,” Fathom Events VP of Programming Kymberli Frueh said. “Seeing their journey unfold, with each obstacle along the way, inspires the innate human spirit of adventure and reminds you what it means to be a true and good friend. Justin and Patrick’s tenacity, endurance and enormous love for one another is a beautiful thing to see.”

“For us, the Camino and this project has always been about the power of our communities, big or small. From partnering with Fathom, to working with the MDA, or collaborating with music groups – like Switchfoot – on the soundtrack – this event is the culmination of our 4-year labor for love,” said co-director Terry Parish.

“In a time when many are feeling on-edge, we are really proud to be offering a documentary that proves that our days aren’t nearly as dark as we are sometimes led to believe, but rather are lit with goodness and the possibility of real connection,” directorial partner Chris Karcher said.

How DEATH NOTE’s Ryuk Was Brought To Life on the Big Screen

 

Based on the famous Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook, realizing it holds within it a great power; if the owner inscribes someone’s name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. Intoxicated with his new godlike abilities, the young man begins to kill those he deems unworthy of life.

The Netflix original film stars an ensemble of rising young stars led by NAT WOLFF (The Fault in Our Stars) as Light Turner; MARGARET QUALLEY (The Leftovers) as Mia Sutton; and LAKEITH STANFIELD (Get Out) as “L.”

Starring alongside the young actors are film and television veterans PAUL NAKAUCHI (Alpha and Omega) as Watari and SHEA WHIGHAM (Agent Carter,) as James Turner.

The voice of Ryuk is performed by two-time Oscar® nominee WILLEM DAFOE (Spider-Man).

“Death Note” is directed by ADAM WINGARD (Blair Witch,), who brings his unique storytelling vision and style to a film infused with horror, suspense, and comedy.
