The Theatrical Run of "The Blind" Gets Extended Again
This true story about Phil Robertson's faith journey continues to perform well at the box office.
Yet another Top-10 performance from The Blind over the weekend, as the biopic brought in just over $1 million from Friday through Sunday, according to Box Office Mojo. That is good enough for ninth place overall, down from sixth position one week ago, and it led to an additional week in theaters for the film.
This picture about the radical transformation of Phil Robertson from an unbelieving, hard-drinking philander to a sober and faithful husband and father after committing his life to Christ, has now placed in the Top-10 for four consecutive weekends. In a recent social media post, Robertson pointed to the uplifting nature of what the Lord did in his life as the reason for the film's success.
"It turns out a movie about hope is a powerful thing. When you see it, you'll know you're not the sum of the worst things you've ever done. Jesus took care of that, and I'm thankful every day."
As Christian Film Blog reported last week, The Blind has become the highest grossing film ever distributed by Fathom Events. The picture, which stars British actors Aron von Andrian and Amelia Eve as Phil and Kay Robertson, his wife, has brought in nearly $15.6 million through 25 days in release. It is now scheduled to be in theaters through November 2nd, and you can buy tickets to a theater in your area via this link to Fathom Events' website.
