"Unplanned" Still Going Strong
Updated: Apr 15, 2019
The pro-life Christian film just misses a top 10 finish at the weekend box office.
Unplanned brought in $1.76 million from Friday through Sunday, putting it in 11th place overall, according to The Numbers. The revenue is down 46% from last weekend, but that is the smallest percentage-based drop of all but one of the movies that finished ahead of it.
Another factor impacting the performance of this faith-based film, which is now in its third week in release, is a 7.5% drop in the number of theaters showing it from last weekend to this. It is now playing in 1,402 - far fewer than of any of the movies that finished in the top 10.
Unplanned has heretofore brought in $15.8 million in box office revenue, significantly outstripping its $6 million production budget. That is quite a performance considering its low theater count and the wide-spread campaign of suppression it has faced from pro-abortion sympathizers, an issue we have covered at length.
Unplanned is a true story based on a memoir of the same name by Abby Johnson, a former abortion clinic director who is now a promiment right-to-life advocate. The film was written and directed by Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman and stars Christian actresses Ashley Bratcher, as Johnson, and Robia Scott in the role of her boss at abortion giant, Planned Parenthood.
