The pro-life, anti-Planned Parenthood flick ‘Unplanned” brought in $6 million on opening weekend, which was enough for it to secure the number five spot at the box office this weekend.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, it’s the second highest Christian film debut, making slightly less than ”God’s Not Dead”, which was produced by the same company that put out “Unplanned.”
1,059 theaters showed the R-rated movie, and it did the best in the Midwest and Southern markets.
“We are thrilled, gratified and humbled,” co-directors Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman said Sunday in a statement. “We are so pleased that the American people have responded with such an enormous outpouring of support at the box office. It humbles us and we look forward to seeing what happens in the weeks ahead.”
Abby Johnson, whose autobiography the movie is based on, tweeted “I bet Planned Parenthood is having a really bad weekend.”
