The Girl Who Believes in Miracles has added to its theater count each weekend since it released at the beginning of this month and has now crossed the two-million-dollar threshold in total box office revenue. That's after bringing in $556,000 from Friday through Sunday, according to preliminary data from The Numbers, a figure which puts it in seventh place overall for this past weekend.


The movie stars Christian actor Kevin Sorbo, Mira Sorvino, Peter Coyote and child actor Austyn Johnson in the lead role and it is now playing in 1,012 theaters. That's up almost 60% from when it released and the growing footprint has helped it maintain a spot in the weekend box office top-10. Total revenue would almost certainly be significantly higher were it not for coronavirus-related restrictions that have reduced theater seating capacity. Filmmakers behind the movie have nonetheless expressed satisfaction about its performance.


Christian Film Blog has interviewed two of them - screenwriter George Michael Mercier, and producer Larry Jaffe - and we recommend you read our articles here and here, because both men have fascinating backstories.
