I STILL BELIEVE Finishes Third at the Weekend Box Office

By Allyson Vannatta, Staff Writer

Faith-based movie I STILL BELIEVE took third place at the box office this weekend amidst the Coronavirus pandemic and theater closures.

The movie, which details the early life of Christian singer Jeremy Camp, brought in a total of $9.1 million domestically this weekend.

It fell behind Pixar’s ONWARD, which came in at $10. million. Vin Diesel’s BLOODSHOT finished second with $9.17 million, THE INVISIBLE MAN brought in $5.8 million to put it in fourth, and Universal’s THE HUNT finished in fifth with $5.3 million.

Movieguide® previously reported that the flick topped the box office on Friday, raking in $4 million.

According to Forbes, the movie was predicted to open with $10-12 million, so it came in close to expectations even with theater closures.

Many Christian celebrities went out to the theater to support the movie and shared their love on social media.

My peeps and I saw @istillbelieve movie this afternoon, and we all give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (see my IG story). . With all the uncertainty and fear in our world right now, I can’t think of a better movie to helps us walk by faith. @jeremycampofficial’s story of love, faith, tragedy, and redemption is so inspiring! First week attendance can be very important, and I want my friend to do well, but honestly, I think it’s a message our country needs right now. I encourage you to push past any fear you may feel about going to theaters and do your soul a favor. Go see #IStillBelieve this weekend. . Double tap if you plan to see it this weekend, and if you’ve already seen it, please share your thoughts in the comment section.
