Ahead of that release, church leaders, pastors and youth workers are getting an opportunity to take an early look during a series of screenings (information at www.soulsurferwave.com.). Interlínc, which works to share Christian music with youth leaders, has also shared an early teaser promo for the film via YouTube.
Underwood plays a youth counselor in the film, which is based on the life of surfer Bethany Hamilton, who fights her way back to the sport she loves after losing her arm in a shark attack. The cast also includes Helen Hunt and Dennis Quaid, with 17-year-old AnnaSophia Robb portraying Hamilton.
The country star spoke with the Associated Press about the movie in September, and said she was pleased with her first big-screen work.
“I really liked how everything turned out, including myself,” Underwood said in an interview Tuesday. “I was really expecting the worst from myself, and I really surprised myself.”
