"The Girl Who Believes in Miracles" Crosses $3 Million Threshold

The movie has delivered a solid box office performance despite the fact that theaters are still not operating at full capacity.

This faith-based film, which is now entering its seventh week in release, claimed 18th place at the weekend box office, bringing in $66,750 from Friday through Sunday, according to The Numbers website. That performance pushed its total revenue above the $3-million mark.


With the movie's theater count dropping fast - now sitting at 417 from 608 the previous weekend - The Girl Who Believes in Miracles is nearing the end of its run, meaning revenue won't go much higher. But with many theaters still closed and nearly all the open ones operating with limited seating because of the coronavirus, filmmakers behind this production have to be pleased with how it's done.


The picture stars Christian actor Kevin Sorbo, Oscar-winner Mira Sorvino and child actor Austyn Johnson in the principal role. It tells an uplifting story about a girl whose prayers lead to miraculous healings in her small town and was inspired by a real-life miracle involving the granddaughter of the movie's screenwriter, George Michael Mercier, which we reported on here.
