"Faith, Hope & Love" Claims Top-50 Spot
This Christian romantic comedy moves up the weekend box office list despite a small drop in revenue.
Faith, Hope & Love brought in a bit over $19,000 in its second weekend in release, according to The Numbers. That's good enough for 46th place on their list of top money makers, up from 52nd, even though the film is down a few thousand dollars from its debut.
The movie still turned in a respectable per theater average, however: just north of $2,100 for each venue. The big problem for this Robert Krantz-directed picture is distribution, as it's only playing in nine theaters, according to The Numbers. The film's website indicates its in 23, but either way the number is minuscule.
That's too bad from Christian Film Blog's perspective, because this is a fun picture that's worthy of a wider audience. The story revolves around two people dealing with emotional trauma - played by Krantz and professional dancer Peta Murgatroyd - who are brought together through a dance contest. As we wrote in our review, it's a funny and heart-warming tale well told.
