"Run the Race" Holds Firm Despite Revenue Drop
The Christian film maintains its position at the box office in weekend three.
Run the Race, from executive producers Tim Tebow and Robby Tebow, brought in $615,000 and finished 16th in box office revenue from Friday through Sunday, according to Box Office Mojo. The film hung on to that spot despite a 50% drop in revenue from the previous weekend. That unusual dynamic is due to the number one movie - Captain Marvel - which grabbed a whopping $153 million and skewed the list.
Run the Race is making significant strides in the Christian genre, now sitting inside the top 50 in all-time revenue. With a haul of $5.25 million so far, it occupies 45th place on that list. It will become difficult to move much higher, however, as the movie's theater count has started to fall, dropping about 30% from the previous weekend.
This Chris Dowling-directed movie stars Evan Hofer and Tanner Stine as high school brothers weathering hardship by depending on each other, their athletic talent and their Christian faith. The supporting cast includes Hollywood vets Frances Fisher, Kristoffer Polaha, Mario Van Peebles and Mykelti Williamson.
