"The Girl Who Believes in Miracles" Drops from the Box Office Top-10

A run of four straight weekends among the 10 biggest revenue generators comes to an end for this faith-based film.

For the first time since it debuted in early April, The Girl Who Believes in Miracles finishes outside the top 10 at the weekend box office, claiming 12th place according to early data from The Numbers website; it generated $197,000, which is a 44% drop from the previous weekend.


The movie, which stars Christian actor Kevin Sorbo, Oscar-winner Mira Sorvino and child actor Austyn Johnson, has a couple of factors working against it at this stage of the game. First, this was its fifth weekend in theaters, so it is now on the downward side of the slope, so to speak, in terms of moviegoer interest. Second, its theater count is falling significantly, going from 941 a week ago to 728 for the latest Friday-through-Sunday stanza.


Thus far the picture has generated total domestic revenue of $2.76 million, which is a good showing for an independent, Christian film like this one, especially when you consider that theaters throughout America are operating with limited seating capacity because of coronavirus safety measures.
