A Top-20 Finish for "The Blind" in its Final Weekend in Theaters
Updated: Nov 7
This true story of Phil Robertson's journey to the Christian faith is now the distributor's all-time top performer.
It has been quite a theatrical run for The Blind, with the picture grossing $17 million total through 39 days in release. It brought in $280,000 this past weekend, according to The Numbers website, good enough to put it in 19th place overall from Friday through Sunday.
The film, which traces Phil Robertson's journey from an unbelieving, hard-drinking philander to a faithful husband and father after he accepted Christ as Savior, stars British actors Aron von Andrian in the lead role and Amelia Eve as his wife, Kay. The real-life couple - married since 1966, long before they became famous on the hit TV series Duck Dynasty - are devout Christians, and Kay stated recently that financial considerations were not why they wanted the project to come to the silver screen.
"We made it because we want people to come to Jesus and we want to save marriages."
The Blind is now the top-grossing film ever for distributor Fathom Events, as we reported here, and if you have not seen it yet, it will be in theaters through this Thursday, November 9th. You can find a venue in your area via this link to the company's website.
