Talk about a box office diversion.
Shailene Woodleys Divergent might be the No. 1 film in America but faith-based audiences are once again proving to be anything but conservative at the U.S. box office.
Christian drama Gods Not Dead, opening in fewer than 800 theaters, is on track for an impressive $8.2 million this weekend. Thats a per-screen average of over $10,400 from 782 locations.

Going to see it tomorrow!
Let me know if you like it! :-)
I heard a radio ad for this (I think), it’s got some pretty good people in it, not that I remember who, but I remember thinking that when I heard it.
And no, they’ll never get that clue, even if we gave them a dollar. good, more money for somebody else.
Hollywood doesn’t care about religion. Hollywood doesn’t “not” care about religion. Hollywood (which is very different from it’s stars) cares about one thing ... money. If they think they can make money on it, they will make it. This is not too bad for a little Indie movie and, indeed, Hollywood is making more religious movies. But you want them to make more? Put the a$$es in the seats and you’ll get it.
Gonna see if I can find a theater playing it.
The only “God” Hollywood serves is money.
Saw it today. Highly recommended.
Sounds like a great movie, heard some excerpts, great concept, the creators of the movie were on their toes to produce such a movie.
I heard it’s about a College Professor, typical Leftwing Liberal type that tells the class to make a project over the title “God is Dead” and one of the students disagrees and says he’s a Christian.
Saw it ....GREAT movie. Very good apologetics material in there,,,
Hollyweird makes it’s version of Biblical films which has little to do with the Bible and God’s truth.
I wouldn’t even be convinced this is a conventional Hollywood movie now since others are making such movies as is the case with the movies “Courageous”, “Facing the Giants” and “October Baby”, just because it’s a movie doesn’t mean it’s from Hollywood as the above mentioned movies were not.
Website in Post 11 with a trailer at the website.
Very cool, its at my local theatre! Gonna see it tomorrow.
Unfortunately I have to wait for the DVD. I’m glad that it’s a good movie and you liked it.
Hmmn, I wasn't aware Houston and Louisiana were Hollywood.
The film was shot in Baton Rouge, Louisiana from October to November 2012. Look like independent filmmakers folks.
Only Hollywood has been dead for years!
I was referring to films like Noah and Son of God.
I saw it Friday night. It was good. I enjoyed it immensely. Next film is Bad Words with Jason Bateman. Was going to go today, but I was sick and wife is trying to get me better so we can go tomorrow perhaps.
The Duck Dynasty people are in it. The main actor is a “D” actor by the name of Kevin Sobo or something like that. You are not getting “A” listers but it doesn’t matter because it is a good movie.
And they are, unfortunately, comfortable in their death.

Lord almighty then don’t see the movie. Your loss.
I’m so sorry that you’re not well but I’m glad that you got to see it since it has a limited opening.
I was referring to films like Noah and Son of God.
Wow! I am again pinging your on your ridiculous exaggerations. You must have a crystal ball to know what Noah is about (the movie). Sometimes you come off like a know it all. Why don’t you see the movie and then criticize. Oh by the way, Son of God was incredible.
Hollywood didn’t make this movie, a christian company called Pure Flix did.
The professormakes them the students sign a paper an turn in paper that says “God is Dead”. The Chistian refuses and the professor wants to humiliate him by forcing him to prove it to the students. What the professor didn’t expect was the Christian using science and intellect to prove it. It will make the most staunch athiest at least consider that they might be wrong I think.
JSanders2001: Thank you so much on enlightening me about this.
I have been hard on you tonight, but I can’t stand the movie bashing on every movie except for that horrid “American Carol” ..of all movies, that movie should have been spoken as negative, but NO ..it was talked up like the best film and deserved an Oscar. It was pure crap!!!!!! I hated every moment of the film. I think it might be the worst movie I have ever watched.

That company needs to make more!
There are reviews of Noah and God is not mentioned in the movie. As for Roma Downey's Son f God there's nothing a committed New Ager can tell me about God.
Good movie. Go see it.
I see maybe 1 movie a year and am usually more or less dragged to it by the family.
They have made more. I have What If
Ok. Great news. Just read Box Office Mojo and the best news of the weekend that nobody is talking about is that Tina Fey’s movie BOMBED!
You are so lucky (that you never heard of that tripe).
Kevin Sorbo was a very big name at one time, but he is not the typical Hollywood player and has spent more time doing films like this in the recent past.
I had the pleasure of meeting Kevin’s dad and helping him buy a tuxedo for an award ceremony in which Kevin was nominated for his performance in “Soul Surfer.”
The family is very down to earth and faithful Christians.
You had the right ideA; just clarified it a little...: )
There is excellent acting in the movie and thought it has a Muslim family they don’t slam them or their beliefs and are very repectful. I guess you might say they treated them as a true Christian would have...: )
Good movie? Maybe, but accurate - you did not say. Does it portray the Bible accurately or is it just another Hollywood fiction movie? What I’ve heard is that it is a great movie but more fiction than fact.
Pure Flix is a Christian movie studio that produces, distributes, and acquires Christ centered movies for the sole purpose of influencing our culture for Christ
Good to hear. Making a living is all personal so if he is making good wholesome films good on him.
I stand corrected! I hope you’re right and it is really a Christian movie... Thanks for the information though, good to know.
You’re welcome. :-)
Just looked it up in my area and will go see it tomorrow
My local Library has been stocking Pureflix dvds. Just watched “This is our Time” the other night. Will look for other movies from Pureflix to share
I just bought Courageous at WalMart for $5. They had Soul Surfer in the $5 bin too.
