War Room is a 2015 American Christian drama film directed by Alex Kendrick and written by him and Stephen Kendrick. It is the Kendrick brothers' fifth film and their first through their subsidiary, Kendrick Brothers Productions. The film was produced by Provident Films, Affirm Films and TriStar Pictures in partnership with the Kendrick brothers.
For this film, Alex and Stephen Kendrick decided to move away from Sherwood Pictures, the church-based film production company which had previously produced their films. In part the brothers left because they felt that the movie-making was distracting from other parts of the church's ministry, with Alex telling The Hollywood Reporter that they felt "We were the elephant in the room." Instead, the brothers produced the film through FaithStep Films and released it through Sony Pictures. Regarding the title of the film, director Kendrick says "We called it 'War Room' because, like the military, we should seek God for the right strategy before going into combat. By combat, I mean daily issues we face in our culture." The brothers got their inspiration from prayer, with Alex stating that he believes even the idea of a war room was given to them by God.

The Thompson Brothers have accomplished a great deal. Lyle and Miles both won the Tewaarton Trophy in 2014. This was the first time for the award to go to a Native player or be shared between two players. As a college senior the following year, Lyle won the award again in 2015. The brothers were all members of the Iroquois National Team when it placed 2nd in the world. All four also serve as Nike N7 ambassadors. The brothers created the company, Thompson Brothers Lacrosse, to accelerate the growth of the game globally. The brothers help to carry out the lacrosse camps their company hosts across the nation. These camps help to inspire Native youth by enabling them to meet their idols and learn from some of the best players in the world. Off the field, the brothers continue to educate with appearances in the film Crooked Arrows and documentary The Medicine Game.
