Media, PA (December  5, 2011, 2011) – Dos Corazones Films announces that The Greatest Miracle, Mexico’s first 3D animated feature film will appear in theaters in 50 US cities on Fri., Dec. 9, 2011.  The Greatest Miracle was originally released in Mexico on Oct. 14, 2011 to praise from audiences and critics alike and had the second highest per screen average that weekend. 

Directed by Bruce Morris (Disney’s Pocahontas, The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Frog and Hercules), The Greatest Miracleexplores the lives of three strangers at Catholic Mass one morning, who are experiencing difficult situations – Monica, a widowed mother, struggles to sustain her home with her son Diego; Don Chema, a bus driver, deals with his child’s incurable illness, and Dona Cata, an elderly woman who seeks peace.  There, each person meets their guardian angel and is given the gift to see the world through spiritual eyes and then take full account of their blessings.

Last month in Hollywood, the film’s music score, composed by Mark McKenzie (Spiderman and Ice Age: The Meltdown) won the Hollywood Music in Media Awards’ “Best Indie Score” for 2011.

According to Jonathan Broxton of Movie Music UK, “McKenzie writes some of the most beautiful, lyrical and emotionally resonant music ever written for film.  Film scores like this don’t come along too often – music so passionate, so moving, and so warm.”

Also,, one of the largest informational sites devoted to the preservation of selected music from the US, gave the movie’s soundtrack special merit status.  “Let there be no misunderstanding – The Greatest Miracle is a truly great score, rising to spiritual heights unheard since the glory days of Alfred Newman and his music for the film, The Song of Bernadette,” said Steve Vertlieb from Film Music Review, their on-line magazine.

“I am very proud of our team’s effort and the industry recognition our film has received so far.  We did not skimp on putting the best ingredients into the making of The Greatest Miracle.  Audiences in Mexico were inspired to consider their lives from a spiritual perspective. We hope people in the United States will react similarly, especially since we’re entering the holiday season,” said Pablo Barroso, producer at Dos Corazones Films.
