"God Bless the Broken Road" Wraps up its Theatrical Run
The movie finishes in 60th place for all-time box office revenue in the Christian genre.
God Bless the Broken Road debuted on September 7th in 1,272 theaters nationwide and ran for 63 days. It generated only $1.38 million on its opening weekend, though, and by the third weekend was down to just 224 theaters. Ultimately, the film brought in $2.84 million against a production budget of $7.7 million, making its theatrical run financially unsuccessful.
Directed by Harold Cronk, God Bless the Broken Road stars Lindsay Pulsipher as a young mother struggling with anger at God after her husband dies in Afghanistan. Pulsipher's love interest in the picture is a racecar driver played by Andrew Walker and the movie's title comes from a Rascal Flats song.
With all those components - the military, stock car racing and country music - it seemed like this one had a lot going for it. Pulsipher turned in a particularly strong performance and the rest of cast, the story and the moviemaking were all worthy of better box office returns.
The picture is scheduled to be released on DVD in early December, so you'll have a chance to pick it up then if you'd like to add it to your film library. Christian Film Blog rated God Bless the Broken Road a 7.5 out of 10, so you may want to do just that.
