Christian Movie Crushes Expectations, Beats Oprah

Hollywood and Hollywood’s celebrities have lost their glamour. As time passes by I am more certain that these Hollywood “celebrities” are nothing more than a bunch of overpaid loudmouths who have nothing intelligent to say but throwing constant attacks on conservatives.

And it seems that Christians Send Hollywood a Strong Message With “I Can Only Imagine” Blockbuster Success.

The nation’s moviegoers look to be turning out in bigger numbers for a Christian-themed independent film than for the first mainstream teen movie with a gay main character. Roadside Attractions-Lionsgate’s “I Can Only Imagine,” based on the story of the biggest-selling Christian song of all time, is looking at an estimated $15 million for the weekend from 1,629 locations, far outdoing earlier estimates of $2 million-$8 million.

There had been some hope for success given that there were 130 million trailer views and $1.6 million in pre-sale tickets, but box office sales of this magnitude were definitely not in the weekend forecast.

“I Can Only Imagine” tells the tale of Bart Millard, the lead singer of Christian group MercyMe. It details Millard’s journey of faith that led him to write the title song, which is the best-selling Christian sing of all time.

The movie has earned an A+ review ranking from people who saw the movie during its launch. This will likely propel more people to the theater and further increasing box office sales for this faith-based film.

While the usual critics only gave it a 62% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the audience has it as near-perfect:

This Christian film produced by an independent film company even outperformed Oprah Winfrey’s movie “A Wrinkle In Time.” Hollywood would be wise to listen up to the demands and interests of people of faith.

Mel Gibson’s continuation of “The Passion Of The Christ” will likely blow the doors of the box offices as well. “The Resurrection” is due to begin filming soon.

Seriously, your time has come and gone, Hollywood!

This is just another example of what real Americans want to watch!
