Sam Worthington returns to the big screen as mourning father and husband trying to find his way in the first trailer for The Shack, hitting theaters March 3, 2017. This drama will have some heavy competition when it hits theaters, going up against 20th Century Fox's superhero adventure Logan, starring Hugh Jackman and Open Road Films' drama Before I Fall starring Zoey Deutch.
