"Jesus Revolution" Becomes Lionsgate's Top Film Since 2019
The faith-based picture from the Erwin Brothers has been among the Top-10 moneymakers every day since it debuted last month.
As we have reported again and again and again, Jesus Revolution has delivered at the box office from the moment it released at the end of February. This movie from the Christian brother duo of Andrew and Jon Erwin has so far brought in more than $40.8 million, according to the latest figures from The Numbers website.
Jon, who co-wrote and co-directed the film, tells Faithwire that that revenue makes the film the best one Lionsgate has put out since 2019. That was the same year the Erwin Brothers signed their partnership deal with the studio - its first foray in the Christian genre - and before the coronavirus pandemic turned the movie business upside down in 2020; the filmmaker and committed Believer is particularly thankful with the way things turned out.
"It's amazing to see audiences back in theaters again and I'm grateful to be a partner with Lionsgate as we rebuild the theatrical experience we all love and missed!"
Jesus Revolution, which tells the story of America's last great revival and stars Joel Courtney, Kelsey Grammer and Jonathan Roumie, debuted in third place at the U.S. box office on its opening weekend and has stayed in the Top-10 ever since. The film will soon roll out internationally, starting March 23rd in Singapore and followed in the weeks to come with release dates in Indonesia (April 10th), Australia and New Zealand (both on April 20th); more locations are expected thereafter.
