This year’s highly anticipated faith and family release Expelled arrives on DVD October 21 from Vivendi Entertainment. Co-writer and Host, Ben Stein (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, ‘Win Ben Stein’s Money”), explores the ongoing conflict between advocates of intelligent design and evolutionists. Known for his sarcastic sense of humor and dry wit, Ben Stein is ready to use his comedic skills to take on the scientific community and open their eyes. Expelled opened in 1,052 theatres, and grossed over $7 million. The DVD will include a special interview with Ben Stein and Lee Strobel, the well known Christian Apologetics and author of The Case for a Creator.
Produced by Premise Media, Expelled digs deep into the world of intelligent design versus evolution and embraces a free speech stance on the subject. Ben Stein uses his unique brand of humor to provide a funny and insightful narrative throughout the film as he visits universities to question scientists and professors on both sides of the debate, including several atheist scientists who support the theory of evolution. Stein reveals an open hostility amongst the scientific community towards scientists who embrace intelligent design.
Ben Stein became a well know fixture of American pop culture with his role as the monotone teacher in Ferris Bueller’s Day Oft (1986), and as the Emmy award-winning host of Comedy Central’s quiz show, ‘Win Ben Stein’s Money.” Currently he has a column for The New York Times “Sunday Business” section and a column about personal finance for Yahoo! He has authored approximately 30 articles for these and other prominent outlets on varying subjects including: living in Los Angeles, finance, and the political and social content of mass culture. He also is a commentator for “CBS Sunday Morning” and FOX News.
“Expelled addresses a hot topic on the forefront of Christian discussion,” said John Sullivan Executive Producer of the film. “We are excited to bring this inventive and daring film to faith and family communities, history enthusiasts, science buffs, Ben Stein followers, and eagerly awaiting fans.”
Big science has expelled smart new ideas from the classroom … What they forgot is that every generation has its Rebel! That rebel, Ben Stein (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) travels the world on his quest, and learns an awe-inspiring truth … that educators and scientists are being ridiculed, denied tenure and even fired for merely believing that there might be evidence of “design” in nature. Perhaps life is not just the result of accidental, random chance. In the film Ben says: “Enough!” – And NOBODY messes with Ben.
