The highest grossing independent film is a “Jesus movie.”
This film had more pre-ticket sales than any other movie in history. It grossed $611,899,420 in worldwide ticket sales since its release. The second highest grossing independent film is ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, a novel adaptation.
Did you notice that? The highest grossing independent film in the world is a ‘Jesus movie.’ This movie did not just appeal the Christians, as we are sure a lot of Christians still did not go to see the movie, but the quality of this attempt had worldwide appeal.
There is hope for Christian films, and we have seen a remarkable improvement in the quality of films being released with a Christian theme, even though some are still being produced by the secular community, and not by those in the Kingdom of God.
