It was a strong performance all around yesterday for Ordinary Angels on its first day in theaters. It brought in an estimated $2.3 million in ticket revenue and earned an A+ from CinemaScore.

That company conducts opinion surveys with opening-night audiences of new movies and then assigns them a letter grade based on the responses. It is the rare film that lands an A+ - 2023 smash hits Barbie and Oppenheimer both managed to earn only an A rating, for instance. More impressive still, the A+ for Ordinary Angels makes five consecutive movies from the brother duo of Andrew and Jon Erwin - the producer team behind this picture - to achieve the feat (their previous A+ films are Woodlawn, I Can Only Imagine, American Underdog, and Jesus Revolution).


As with those other films, Ordinary Angels is based on a true story - as we reported here - and also has some well-known on-screen talent, including Oscar-winner Hilary Swank and Christian actor Alan Ritchson. We will follow its performance at the box office for the entire opening weekend and put up an article tomorrow, so check back in with us to find out how it does financially.
