I Heard the Bells brought in $750,000 in its sophomore weekend, putting it in 9th place overall at the box office from Friday through Sunday, according to Box Office Mojo. That also pushes it across the $4 million threshold for total revenue through 11 days in theaters.


It is a strong performance for this biopic about 19th century American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and his journey back to the Faith after a family tragedy left him wavering. The inaugural feature film from the Pennsylvania-based, Christian theater company Sight & Sound, the picture was originally scheduled to run for just three days, but because of its success will now play on the big screen until December 22nd, meaning 22 days in all.
