      @ Elvan Moore, I.:
      It was supposed to come out this year to my understanding; however, I still haven’t found/seen a release date,…. the only dates I can find or releases are from another “Burden” revolving around Chris Burden, an artist, as opposed to Michael Burden from the KKK.

    Trying to find an update on when the movie BURDEN will be release, no information found. Would like to see this movie when it’s released.

    It’s in theaters Sunday…January 21!
    I was an extra in it along with my husband and sons. I can’t wait! We’ve waited over a year.

    What are they waiting forever to release this film? I have been looking froward to seeing it for over a year and a half. Does anybody know anything?
