‘War Room’ Continues to Defy Critics, Officially Now At No. 1; Faith-Based Movie Soaring By the Day
“War Room” proves its production value in becoming the next hit of the Kendrick brothers, profiteering $12.6 million dollars in just four days. Will it be able to retain its performance? Read on for more details.
“War Room” doesn’t only wish to regain their $3 million dollars of movie budget, but also to reach the heart of every soul in the life of each moviegoer.
While the movie is creating a box office record, the late American Film Critic Roger Ebert’s official website, whose reviews seem to always matter for great movies, only rated “War Room” as one out of four by the Assistant editor of Ebert Publishing, Matt Fagerholm.
“They must portray the full dimensionality of the material world before they can begin to explore the Spiritual one”, Fagerholm stated.
Does exploring spiritual life portrays the full dimension of material world? Non-Christians can enjoy the movie or not, but they should be able to understand the depth to which the power of prayer is addressed, said one visitor at Ebert’s website.
Pastor Alex Kendrick humbly stated that though the Hollywood critics had been rough without understanding why they are making movies, their target audience is nothing but the people who gets it and they want to bring them closer to God.
Critical reaction will always arise with the Kendrick’s so-called cheesy movies but the “War Room” movie is definitely winning its battle. As the Kendrick brothers continue to create faith based movie for years like “Courageous” and “Fireproof”, Variety revealed “War Room” has already earned $27.9 million dollars, dethroning “Straight Outta Compton” in its number 1 spot.
But analysts expect “Straight Outta Compton” to retain the crown. Nevertheless, today’s the time for “War Room.”
And last September 4-7, Box Office Mojo ranked “The Transporter Refueled” at the fifth place, earning $9 million dollars in 3,434 theatres; “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” ranked as fourth and earned $182,536,612 in 2,849 theatres; “A Walk in the Woods” ranked as third and earned $12,609,000 in 1960 theatres; “Straight Outta Compton” ranked as second and earned $150,214,495 in 3,094 theatres; and “War room” on the top spot earning $27,863,458 in just 1,526 theatres.
Alex Kendrick and Stephen Kendrick continue in proving to be the Stephen Spielberg of Christian films. Rotten tomatoes no more!
