Bump in the Numbers for "Faith, Hope & Love"
The Christian film sees both its theater count and box office revenue go up over the weekend.
The number of theaters showing Faith, Hope & Love went up from two to five over the weekend and the revenue jumped to almost $2,800, up 44% from a week earlier, according to Box Office Mojo. Now heading into its ninth week in release, this Robert Krantz picture has brought in $200,000 all told.
The faith-based romantic comedy is funny and has a strong cast, but has suffered all along from a minimal distribution footprint. At its height, it played in only 18 theaters and has dropped as low as one theater, though it is currently showing in five.
Krantz, who wrote, produced and co-directed the film, is also the lead actor. He and Peta Murgatroyd play a pair of emotionally wounded people drawn together through a dance contest. Ed Asner and Christian actors Corbin Bernsen and Natasha Bure are among the supporting cast members.
