I was anxious to hear how Fireproof did this weekend, so Chris looked it up for me. WEAR3 and Good Morning America failed to mention the ratings from this movie.
The following is a copy of an email Chris sent to Christian Garmen.
I just wanted to drop you a note concerning the weekend box office.
While ‘Eagle Eye’, ‘Nights In Rodanthe’, and ‘Lakeview Terrace’ were the top 3 movies, I think you missed the real story of the weekend.
‘Fireproof’ opened in the 4th spot with 6.5 million. Only a ½ million less than ‘Lakeview Terrace’ which opened on 2,467 screens, while ‘Fireproof’ opened on only 839 screens.
Actually, if you look at the earnings per screen, ‘Fireproof’ was 2nd behind ‘Eagle Eye’ – not bad for a small-budget film.
Just thought you might like to know.
Sherwood Baptist of Albany, Georgia should be thrilled with these ratings! Makes me wonder, how many lives; how many marriages will be saved and changed for eternity because of this move?
