‘Jesus Revolution’ Pulled in $15 Million on Opening Weekend

The new film Jesus Revolution brought in more than $15 million at the box office on opening weekend, far exceeding Hollywood predictions that the film would only make an estimated $6 million.

The film came in third overall at the box office, behind Marvel’s Ant-Man an the Wasp: Quantamania and Cocaine Bear. But it beat out some star-powered contenders, too, including Magic Mike’s Last Dance, 80 for Brady and A Man Called Otto.

This sets the bar pretty high for the film, as most Christian movies struggle at the box office. Only a handful of Christian films have made that much over the opening weekend, including The Passion of the Christ, the Shack and Heaven Is For Real. 

But then again, the theatrical season three premiere of The Chosen shocked Hollywood, too.

Jesus Revolution tells the real-life story of youth minister Greg Laurie (Joel Courtney) and pastor Chuck Smith (Kelsey Grammer) as they take part in the “Jesus Movement” in California during the 1970s.
