NASHVILLE (BP) — The faith-based drama “Woodlawn,” promoted as a potential catalyst for revival and spiritual awakening, opened in the top 10 at theaters Oct. 16–18, Box Office Mojo reported.
Woodlawn opened in the eighth spot Oct. 16, earning $1.485 million in 1,553 theaters, and finished the weekend at number nine, earning a total of $4.1 million, Box Office Mojo said.
Three books accompanied the movie’s release, namely “Woodlawn: Dare to Believe,” and “Touchdown Tony: Running With a Purpose,” both available from Howard Books, and the devotional “When God Shows Up,” available from Broadstreet Publishing.
Woodlawn was released seven weeks after the Kendrick Brothers’ “War Room,” which grossed $65.4 million through Oct. 18 on a budget of only $3 million, Box Office Mojo said. Featuring Bible teachers Priscilla Shirer and Beth Moore in a story illustrating the power of a disciplined and focused prayer life, War Room continues in hundreds of theaters across the country, according the movie’s website.
