The Blind brought in a bit more than $5 million in ticket revenue over the weekend, according to estimates from The Numbers website, which puts the picture in fourth place overall. On a per-theater basis, it earned nearly $2,400 in each venue, allowing it to claim fourth position by that measure as well.

This feature film tells the story of Phil Robertson's tumultuous journey to the Faith. Though a devout Christian now, as a young man in the 1960s, the Duck Dynasty patriarch was estranged from his wife Kay and their young sons for some time because of a profligate lifestyle that included hard drinking and philandering. The Blind should nonetheless provide plenty of inspiration, because not only did Miss Kay - as she is better known - not divorce Phil, she reunited with him after he accepted Christ as his Savior and underwent a radical transformation from the man he had been up to that point.

Willie Robertson - Phil and Kay's son, fellow co-star from Duck Dynasty and executive producer of The Blind - said in a press release he is "thankful" moviegoers are able to "experience this incredible story of redemption." A committed Christian himself, he added that the film is proving an inspiration to many of them.

"Thousands of people are leaving theaters with renewed hope and a sense that it's not too late to turn their lives around."

The movie is scheduled to be on the silver screen through at least October 10th and you can purchase tickets to a theater in your area via this link to the website of distributor Fathom Events.
