Hollywood continues to turn on regular Americans. The land of liberal elitists keeps churning out “woke” content that tramples traditional American values and beliefs. It has resulted in a massive exodus of fans from mainstream forms of entertainment.
In the aftermath, independent filmmakers and creators have been winning over audiences. These creators are unashamed to share their faith in their TV shows or films. And they are celebrating the values that unite millions of Americans. Over the weekend, one of these films hit theaters. And it rocked box office expectations.
From The Western Journal:
The film “Jesus Revolution” more than doubled industry estimates, taking in over $15 million at the weekend box office and earning a third place finish overall.
Deadline reported that the story about the Jesus movement in the late 1960s and 70s was forecasted to earn between $6 million and $7 million in ticket sales…
For “Jesus Revolution” director Jon Erwin, it was the fourth time one of his films earned an A+ rating, which CinemaScore President Harold Mintz pointed out is “unprecedented” going back to when the firm began releasing results in 1986.
Woah. The new film “Jesus Revolution” starring Kelsey Grammer was released to theaters this weekend. Studio experts predicted it would bring in around $6 million. Instead, the movie rocked predictions, bringing in over $15 million and taking third place at the box office.
Not only that, but this is director Jon Erwin’s fourth movie to earn an A+ rating. This is a rating audiences give a film after seeing it. According to CinemaScore, this kind of streak is unprecedented in film.
Viewers gave the film a 99% score on Rotten Tomatoes, despite critics’ lukewarm reception.
That shouldn’t surprise us. Film critics are basically bought and sold by the corrupt woke Hollywood. They and the studios just don’t get it. They are spending hundreds of millions on politically-driven content we don’t want.
But indie productions like the Jesus Revolution are defying the God-hating film industry, to rave success.
Not that long ago, you would have never expected a Christian movie to be third at the box office. That’s because Hollywood would have never made one, and theaters would have refused to screen it. But today, audiences are eager to watch films with a message of faith and hope, as Hollywood tries to drown us in misery and despair.
Let’s hope this continues.
- Indie, faith-based film Jesus Revolution scored a third place at the box office.
- It brought in over double what experts predicted in the opening weekend.
- The film is the fourth from director Jon Erwin to receive an A+ CinemaScore.
