"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.
