Box Office Shocker: ‘Jesus Revolution’ Surpasses $40 Million, Lionsgate’s Best Movie Since ’19
The faith-based film “Jesus Revolution” continues to defy the odds at the box office, surpassing $40 million in domestic sales as it prepares to open overseas.
According to Box Office Mojo, the movie went over the $40 million mark on Monday and stood at approximately $41.5 million as of Wednesday.
“The numbers are incredible, especially coming out of a pandemic,” Kevin Downes, producer of “Jesus Revolution,” told Christian Headlines.
MovieGuide reported that “Jesus Revolution” is the highest-grossing film for distributor Lionsgate since the 2019 release of the murder mystery “Knives Out” starring Daniel Craig, Chris Evans and Jamie Lee Curtis.
“Jesus Revolution” beat Lionsgate’s best film since then — 2021’s “The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard” starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson — which earned just over $38 million domestically.
