‘Going Wherever God Parts the Seas’
From CBN News. Faith-based film fans are proving once again that there is a growing move to see more wholesome, family content on the big screens. This weekend, “The Chosen Season 3” premiered in the third spot at the box office. …
The theatrical debut of ‘The Chosen’ Season 3 landed in the top 3 at the box office this weekend, finishing domestically with $8,687,682.
The Chosen Season 3 will end up doubling the box office revenue from last year’s opening weekend with The Chosen Christmas special, and that was the #1 most successful Fathom Event in history.
“The success of The Chosen Season 3: Episode 1 & 2 is the perfect example of how innovative the event cinema business has become and how hungry audiences are for faith-based content,” said Ray Nutt, CEO of Fathom Events. “Additionally, the robust partnership that we’ve developed with Angel Studios and The Chosen team really works – not only for Fathom Events and our exhibition partners but for fans everywhere, including several international territories who want to see this content on the big screen and as a community.”
Due to overwhelming demand, the first two episodes will be in extended theaters through December 1, 2022 before becoming available on the show’s free streaming platform. …
“There’s an appetite here, so we’re going to debut Season 3, the first two episodes, in theaters and try something new and figure out something that we haven’t done before at this level,” Jenkins told Movieguide. “If it works, we keep going. We’re going wherever God parts the seas towards.”
The Christmas special became Fathom Events’ best-selling and most highly attended event at the time, earning $8 million in sales on opening night.
“For me, it’s about the impact and seeing what God is doing,” Jenkins told CBN’s “The PrayerLink”. “God has something to say and I’m just wanting to be a part of it.”
… The series will pick up where it left off in season 2 – Jesus feeding the 5,000.
“The Feeding of the 5,000 demands to be seen on the big screen,” he said. …
The theme for Season 3 of “The Chosen” is based on the New Testament scripture Matthew 11:28: “Come to me, all you who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.”
