The movie version of Heaven Is for Real, starring Greg Kinnear, will hit theaters on April 16. For those who don't know, Heaven Is for Real is a 2010 memoir by Todd Burpo, whose son, Colton, had a vision of heaven while undergoing lifesaving surgery. The book has spent more than 150 consecutive weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, and with a movie in the works it will no doubt stay there for at least a few dozen more. Check out the tear-jerker of a trailer below.

With its themes of family and faith, I'm surprised they didn't slot this one for a holiday  release. Do you plan to see Heaven Is for Real?
