The baseball biopic loses ground at the weekend box office as its theater count falls off significantly.
In its third weekend in release, The Hill earned $605,000 at domestic theaters, according to The Numbers website, putting it in 15th place from Friday through Sunday. That revenue is down nearly 60% percent from last weekend and in large part is due to a fall in the number of theaters showing the picture: about 1,200 this weekend versus more than 1,700 a week ago.
Set in the 1970s, this faith-based film is based on the true story of a baseball phenomenon who overcame a debilitating spinal condition to become a professional player. The picture stars Hollywood veteran Dennis Quaid and Christian actor Colin Ford.
Through 17 days in release, The Hill has generated more than $6.5 million in box office revenue. It should remain in theaters for at least a few weeks to come and Christian Film Blog would guess it will add a couple million more.
