"Unsung Hero" Just Misses Four Straight Top-10 Weekends at the Box Office

The faith-based film from the Erwin Brothers and Joel Smallbone also faced a significant drop in its theater count.

Unsung Hero generated more than $1 million in ticket revenue from Friday through Sunday, according to The Numbers website. That is down almost 60% from the previous weekend and moves the picture from sixth to eleventh place over the same period, but it also pushes the total haul thus far above $19 million.


The film, which tells the coming-to-America story of Christian music's Smallbone family, is now showing in 1,700 plus theaters, more than 1,000 off its peak when it released 24 days ago. The directorial debut of Joel Smallbone - who with his brother Luke makes up the musical duo For King & Country - was produced by Andrew and Jon Erwin through their Kingdom Story Company via its partnership with Lionsgate.


In addition to co-directing, Smallbone also helped write the script and plays the part of his father, David, in the movie. He is joined on screen by a strong supporting cast, including Christian actors Candace Cameron Bure and Lucas Black.
