The documentary Superspreader made the most of its limited engagement release over the weekend, bringing in just shy of $290,000 from Friday through Sunday, which was good for 18th place overall, according to Box Office Mojo. The film, which follows Christian singer Sean Feucht's campaign to lead public worship gatherings during the coronavirus lockdowns, was initially slated for just a one-day showing, but its $211,000 opening-night performance evidently beat expectations, thus leading to Saturday and Sunday screenings as well.


Running the Bases, starring Christian actors Brett Varvel, Gigi Orsillo, Cameron Arnett and Terry Todd landed in the 23rd spot on the Box Office Mojo list, garnering $116,000 in its third weekend in release. No revenue has been reported yet for a third faith-based picture currently out, Lifemark from the Kendrick Brothers. The latest numbers for that one, which stars Kirk Cameron and is based on a true-to-life adoption story, are through last Thursday: after three weeks in release, it has grossed more than $5 million.
