The Overcomer movie has surpassed it’s opening weekend expectations at the Box Office.
The faith based film from the Kendrick Brothers brought in $8.2 million from just 1,723 screens across the country.
It’s been nearly four years since the Kendrick brothers changed the game in Hollywood with their blockbuster faith-based film, “War Room,” which grossed over $67 million.
The Overcomer movie stars Priscilla Shirer, Alex Kendrick, and tells the story of high school basketball coach John Harrison. He and his team face an uncertain future when their town’s largest manufacturing plant shuts down unexpectedly.
As hundreds of people move away, John reluctantly agrees to coach cross-country, a sport he doesn’t even like. His outlook soon changes when he meets Hannah Scott, an unlikely runner who pushes herself to the limit. Inspired by the words and prayers of a new friend, John starts to train Hannah for the biggest race of her young life.
