Jesus Revolution, a faith-based film starring Jonathan Roumie and Kelsey Grammer, has surged past $40 million at the box office and has become entertainment company Lionsgate’s highest-grossing film since 2019.

The film has earned $40,862,465 as of March 13 since its Feb. 24 release date, according to Box Office Mojo. That puts the film in the top spot for Lionsgate since the pandemic, surpassing the Ryan Reynolds-starring action-comedy Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard,, which only earned $38 million in 2021.

“The numbers are incredible, especially coming out of a pandemic,” producer Kevin Downes told Christian Headlines. Downes also said he was amazed that so many were still “coming out in droves,” and that the audiences “are not going away.”

Christian Headlines also noted the movie has finished in the Top 5 at the box office in its first two weekends.

The film’s star Jonathan Roumie insisted that the film holds lessons for the modern day world, saying:

“It’s about faith, it’s about hope and redemption and finding your identity in God… It’s the great human conundrum, it’s the great question we all ask ourselves: What am I doing? Why am I here? What is my purpose? And every generation has that and gets distracted from God. … When people come to the realization that God is their identity, God is behind their identity, everything falls into place.”

The comedy-drama also stars Kelsey Grammer. The film grossed $15.9 million during its opening weekend, placing it at No. 3, beating out most of Hollywood’s films. Analysts initially predicted the film would only earn anywhere between $6 million and $7 million upon its opening.

Grammer claimed that the movie was a blessing in his life, saying:

“I’ve had hiccups. I’ve had some tragic times. I have wrestled with those and worked my way through them: sometimes rejecting faith, sometimes rejecting God even, in a period of being pretty angry about it, like, ‘Where were you?’ That kind of thing… But I have come to terms with it and have found great peace in my faith and in Jesus. It’s not cavalier — Jesus made a difference in my life. That’s not anything I’ll apologize for.”

  1. As a Calvery Chapel supporter from Northern California, I absolutely Loved the movie.

    I moved to Texas almost 7 years ago and haven’t found a church like my Calvery Chapel home church in Cali.

    I grew up in church but it wasn’t until I was an adult going to a Calvery Chapel church that the BIBLE became real to me. When you study/read the Bible verse by verse, chapter by chapter it becomes real, at least it did me.

    We need more churches like Calvery Chapel and more family/faith based movies and shows.
