Christian-themed film “Miracles From Heaven” had a strong opening this past weekend, bringing in $18.6 million over five days (the film opened on Wednesday, March 16). According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film’s $15 million weekend haul is the fourth highest of any faith-based movie.
“Miracles From Heaven” is based on the memoir by Christy Beam (Played inthe film by Jennifer Garner), whose young daughter (played in the movie by Kylie Rogers) made a miraculous recovery from an incurable disease. Joe Roth and minister T.D. Jakes produced the film, which came in No. 3 after “Zootopia” and “Allegiant.”
“This is a big win for us, and the movie will continue to expand through and beyond Easter weekend,” said Sony distribution chief Rory Bruer said in a statement. “You could see how the film kept growing, and we’re playing beyond just Christian audiences.”
