A Humble Milestone for "God Bless the Broken Road"
The Harold Cronk-directed film has not performed well, but is inching its way up the all-time Christian box office list.
This movie about a young mother who faces a crisis of faith after her husband's death in combat debuted on September 7th and has brought in just $2.78 million. With its theater count down to 111, it stands no chance of making back its estimated $7.7 million production budget.
Looking for a silver lining, however, Christian Film Blog can report that God Bless the Broken Road has now moved into 60th place in all-time box office revenue among Christian films. According to Box Office Mojo, keeper of the list, it just edged past the 2014 movie Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas to claim that spot.
For a faith-based film featuring country music, the military and stock car racing, we expected a significantly better performance. This picture is also a solid effort, earning a review of 7.5 out of 10 from us. We still recommend you go see it, provided you can find a theater showing it. If not, DVD release and streaming can't be far off.
