Another weekend, another Top-10 finish for Jesus Revolution. The latest film from Andrew and Jon Erwin, it brought in $1.96 million from Friday through Sunday, according to The Numbers website, putting it in eighth place at the weekend box office. That performance brings its total ticket revenue to just over $49 million after 31 days in release and the movie will almost certainly cross the $50 million threshold in the next few days.

This period piece is set in the late 1960s and early 1970s, during what was known as the Jesus movement, which started among American counterculture groups and was the nation's last great Christian revival. The film stars Joel Courtney, Kelsey Grammer and Jonathan Roumie and is based on a book by prominent pastor Greg Laurie, detailing his coming to faith at the time.
