WAR ROOM Hits a Solid Third Place at the Box Office this Weekend – Grossing Nearly Forty Million Dollars! A Second Faith-Based Film starts in Ninth Place!

Great news from the world of movies again this week.  War Room garnered a solid third place behind The Perfect Guy and The Visit (new movies in their first week) but the Kendrick Brothers film is nearly at $40,000,000 – a new record!  And another faith-based movie debuted in 9th place this week.   Here is the Box Office Mojo weekend estimate.

Here is from Hollywood Deadline:

Two faith-based films — War Room from Sony and Samuel Goldwyn’s 90 Minutes in Heaven both were good performers. Not a surprise. War Room is almost at the $40M mark with a weekend take of around $7.5M on 1,647 screens while the latter is expected to collect a little over $2M on only 838 screens.

The 90 Minutes in Heaven movie debuted in ninth place, not bad considering it was only in less than 900 theaters.  From Variety:

Not every new release was so lucky. Samuel Goldwyn’s “90 Minutes in Heaven” failed to connect with faith-based crowds, earning a disappointing $2.2 million across 878 theaters. It may have been overshadowed by the continued strength of “War Room.” The Sony Pictures and Affirm faith-based family drama was third place at the box office, taking in $7.4 million for the weekend and bringing its domestic haul to $39.2 million. It is now the highest-grossing picture of filmmaking brothers Alex Kendrick and Stephen Kendrick’s career, topping 2011’s “Courageous” and its $34.5 million total.

A new Kendrick Brothers record!  Let’s keep it up next week.
