A slow follow-up weekend for the Nativity Story production, Journey to Bethlehem, according to ticket-sales data from The Numbers website. It brought in just over $1 million at theaters from Friday through Sunday, putting it in 12th place at the box office; that is down from seventh place during its inaugural weekend and also nearly 60% lower in terms of revenue.

The movie, produced by Sony Picture's faith-based division Affirm Films, stars Christian musicians Joel Smallbone and Lecrae, as well Antonio Banderas, Milo Manheim and Fiona Palomo. It follows the Biblical narrative of the birth of Christ, while punctuating the story with plenty of song and dance numbers.


As Christian Film Blog has previously reported, the film is off to a slow start considering all that it has going for it, from a strong cast to being a big-studio production. Through ten days in release, Journey to Bethlehem has generated just $4.3 million in ticket revenue.
