BOX-OFFICE HIT DOCU-DRAMA ‘FOUR BLOOD MOONS’
TOPS CHRISTIAN DVD SALES
For Second Week, FOUR BLOOD MOONS Leads CBA Retail Sales
SAN ANTONIO – July 13, 2015 – Based on John Hagee’s New York Times best-selling book and a hit with moviegoers nationwide, the gripping docu-drama FOUR BLOOD MOONS launches on DVD with strong sales. With 32,673 DVDs sold, FOUR BLOOD MOONS was the top-selling DVD at CBA retailers in its first two weeks.
FOUR BLOOD MOONS combines scripture, science, history and big screen live action as it examines a never-to-be-repeated celestial event occurring now that in years past was surrounded by major change.
A blood moon occurs at a lunar eclipse when the earth comes between the sun and the moon. As the sun shines through the atmosphere, it throws a shadow on the moon, making the moon look red. Only three times in the past 500 years have four of these blood moons (or tetrads) occurred back to back and on major Jewish holy days. The fourth tetrad began April 15, 2014, on Passover. In October last year, the second blood moon appeared on the Feast of Tabernacles (also known as Sukkot). Blood moons in 2015 land on the same holy days, including this September.
“What’s occurring now has only occurred three times in the past 500 years, and each occurrence brought tragedy and triumph for the Jewish people,” Hagee said. “This time there’s a solar eclipse in the middle of it—making a combination that will never repeat.”
FOUR BLOOD MOONS debuted in a March 23 theatrical one-night event with demand so strong that over 150,000 viewers drove sales topping the nationwide per screen average. That response spurred an encore event in nearly 650 theaters across the country.
Audiences raved about FOUR BLOOD MOONS:
- “Everyone should watch this movie. It’s amazing.”
- “It offers hope to people questioning what is going on right now.”
- “I think every person, regardless of what they believe, should see it.”
Feature film production values bring the message of FOUR BLOOD MOONS to life on screen as cinematic recreations of historical events from the United States, Israel and throughout the Middle East illustrate the story. Historians, religious scholars and commentators also offer their insight. Just a few of the experts appearing include filmmaker, speaker and author Dinesh D’Souza; radio host and author Dennis Prager; noted author and historian David Barton; research originator Mark Biltz; and author and television host Erick Stakelbeck.
Now, FOUR BLOOD MOONS roars out of the gate in similar fashion with strong DVD sales after launching June 23.

Among History’s Most Important Events?
Normally, a headline like that portends an outlandishly exaggerated story. FOUR BLOOD MOONS, however, covers an event that occurred but three times in the last 500 years and is occurring again now. Blood moons are full lunar eclipses where the sun shines through the earth’s atmosphere making the moon appear red. Only three times in the last 500 years have four blood moons appeared back to back (a tetrad), while coinciding with Jewish holy days. We currently are in the fourth tetrad. This time a solar eclipse also occurs, which will never happen again. The Bible speaks of “darkened sun” and “moon turned to blood” as associated with major events. What are the current FOUR BLOOD MOONS trying to tell us?
Historic Events Surround Four Blood Moons
In the past 500 years, only three times have four blood moons appeared back to back (a tetrad) and coinciding with Jewish holy days. Each time the world was changed. In 1493, the Jews had been expelled from Spain, and Columbus had discovered the New World. In 1948-49, the modern state of Israel was founded. In 1967-68, the Six Day War was followed by the reunification of Jerusalem to Israel. We are in the middle of the fourth tetrad. With world tension rising over the Middle East, what might be around the corner?
Unprecedented Time of Tension
The Middle East has spurred tension since the founding of the modern state of Israel. Terrorism and war have been the norm. Now with the possibility of a nuclear Iran, anti-Semitism on the rise in Europe and terror on the rise worldwide, global tension is at new levels. What might these events might mean?
