"The Blind" Goes from Success to Success

This biopic about "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson gets yet another extension to its record-setting theatrical run.

The Blind claimed 12th place at the box office over the weekend, according to The Numbers website, bringing in almost $470,000 from Friday through Sunday. That is down three spots from last weekend and the drop is in large part due to a significant reduction in venues showing the movie: 590 theaters this weekend versus 934 a week ago.

That performance was still strong enough to compel distributor Fathom Events to extend the picture for seven more days - something that has happened multiple times before - meaning it will now finish its run in theaters on November 9th instead of the 3rd. As Christian Film Blog previously reported, The Blind is already the all-time box office champion for Fathom Events and it has now pushed its total haul to $16.5 million after 32 days in release.


The film, which stars British actors Aron von Andrian as Phil Robertson and Amelia Eve as his wife, Kay, tells the story of the early years of their marriage, when Phil went from a hard-drinking, unfaithful spouse to a Christian who became a loving husband and father.
