This Friday, the Christian themed drama 90 Minutes in Heaven looks to bring in an audience that just made War Room a surprise success. It could succeed. Based on a popular novel, the film stars Hayden Christensen, Kate Bosworth, and Dwight Yoakam.
Over the last few years, these faith based flicks have had a knack of making more than prognosticators have anticipated. As mentioned, just two weeks ago, War Room took in $11 million on just over 1000 screens for a second place showing. The current numbers have Heaven debuting on around 800 (this could change, of course).
I really see no reason why this won’t post a similar result, so we’ll say this reaches just past double digits in its opening.
