‘God’s Not Dead 2,’ ‘Miracles From Heaven’ in Top 5 for Weekend Box Office
What may come as a little bit of a surprise – two of the weekend’s top five movies are Christian-themed. More shocking than that? Both are low-budget films.
God’s Not Dead 2 stars Melissa Joan Hart as a high school teacher who gets sued by the American Civil Liberties Union for mentioning jesus in a classroom. It was made on a $5 million budget and had an opening tally of almost $8 million.
Miracles From Heaven stars Jennifer Garner and is based on the true story of Anna Beam, a young girl with an incurable disease who is healed after hitting her head, and having a vision of heaven. It was made on a budget of $13 million and has amassed over $46 million in three weeks.
