Faith based films, ‘I Can Only Imagine,’ and ‘Paul, Apostle of Christ’ performed in the Top Ten this past weekend according to Box Office numbers.
I Can Only Imagine came in third, while Paul, Apostle of Christ landed in the eighth spot in its debut weekend, earning $5 million for Sony’s Affirm Films.
“I Can Only Imagine” held strong in its second weekend in theaters, scoring a solid $13.8 million. That brings its total earnings to $38 million – an impressive performance for a film that only cost $7 million to create.
“I Can Only Imagine” is a story of pain and victory, revealed through the true life account of MercyMe’s lead singer, Bart Millard who suffered at the hands of an abusive father – a father who eventually became transformed into a kind man by the power of Jesus Christ.
Meanwhile, “Paul, Apostle of Christ” stars Jim Caviezel, who plays the role of Luke, who wrote part of the Bible, as he visits the apostle Paul while he was imprisoned by the Romans.
