Miracles From Heaven debuted in theaters to strong reviews and expected box-office performance. Early receipts estimate that the inspirational movie from TriStar made approximately $15 million in 3,047 theaters, reaching No. 3 at the domestic box office.
Miracles From Heaven was not the only faith-based film in theaters this weekend. Risen made $1.1 million and ranked No. 12 in its fifth week of release. The Young Messiah fell to No. 13 in its second week, grossing $1 million.
Miracles From Heaven will likely benefit from its “A+” CinemaScore, which generally indicates strong word-of-mouth buzz and a long lifespan in theaters. However, all three inspirational films will have to share screens with God’s Not Dead 2 when it releases April 1.
