Overcomer debuted August 22nd and hasn't finished a single weekend since then lower than 39th place at the box office. That's the spot it claimed in the latest Friday through Sunday period, bringing in just over $30,000, according to The Numbers. And it managed to do that while playing in just 72 theaters.

The latest movie from the brother duo of Stephen Kendrick and Alex Kendrick, this one focuses on the importance of finding our identity in Christ and has a good cast of Christian actors, including Cameron Arnett, Shari Rigby, Priscilla Shirer, Aryn Wright-Thompson and Alex Kendrick, who also directed the picture, in addition to co-writing the screenplay with Stephen.

Overcomer, which has earned $34.7 million in domestic ticket revenue, will finish its theatrical run this week or next and is scheduled to go on sale in the digital format on November 26th, followed by DVD and Blu-ray release on December 17th.
