The Shift drummed up an estimated $4.3 million in ticket revenue from Friday through Sunday, according to preliminary figures from The Numbers website. That is enough to put the movie in eighth place overall in its inaugural weekend in theaters.

Christian actor Kristoffer Polaha plays the lead role in this dystopian thriller, and he has a strong supporting cast, including Hollywood veteran Neal McDonough, Liz Tabish of The Chosen, and Sean Astin, another Believer with lots of Hollywood pictures to his credit. The Shift - loosely based on the Old Testament book of Job - follows Polaha's character as he struggles to get back to his wife, played by Tabish, from a dystopian universe into which the villain in the piece, portrayed by McDonough, has cast him.
