"Jesus Revolution" Tops Important Box Office Measure for Three Straight Days
As a result of its success, the faith-based film about America's last great revival will add more theaters.
The latest film from Christian brothers Andrew and Jon Erwin, Jesus Revolution claimed third place at the box office in its opening weekend and has held firmly in that spot each of the three days that have followed, which is an impressive beginning. More impressive still, the movie has claimed first place these last three days when measured by revenue per theater.
So, while superhero flick Antman and the Wasp: Quantumania and comedy/horror picture Cocaine Bear - yes, you read that right, that is the actual title of the movie - have generated higher revenue overall this week, they are playing in well over a thousand more theaters than the 2,475 currently hosting Jesus Revolution. Thanks to its successful performance, the Christian movie will expand its footprint, according to a post on its social media.
"We've added 100 new theaters for this weekend!! The audience reaction has blown us all away, and we're thrilled to be bringing JESUS REVOLUTION to more cities!"
The film, which stars Joel Courtney, Kelsey Grammer and Jonathan Roumie, has rung up more than $20 million total in just six days in full release. And strong word-of-mouth recommendations, a top rating from opening-night audiences and broad support from prominent Christian entertainers is bound to keep the momentum going into this weekend. We will keep an eye on the movie's performance and update you as warranted.
