“Jesus Revolution”, tells the story of a group of young people who, during the turbulent 1960s, discover a newfound faith in Jesus Christ and start a spiritual revolution that transforms their lives and their world. The film’s success at the box office previews bodes well for its official release, which took place last Friday. Fans of Erwin’s previous films, such as “I Can Only Imagine” and “I Still Believe” had eagerly waited for the release of “Jesus Revolution,” which as expected turned out to be another uplifting and inspiring film.
“Cocaine Bear” is a dark comedy inspired by a true story about a bear in Kentucky that ingested a large amount of cocaine that fell from a drug smuggler’s plane in 1985. The film is directed by Elizabeth Banks and stars Keri Russell, Ray Liotta, and Alden Ehrenreich.
While “Cocaine Bear” has generated some buzz and anticipation, it seems that “Jesus Revolution” has captured the hearts of moviegoers with its message of hope, faith, and transformation.
The film’s success at the box office previews is a testament to its appeal and the anticipation surrounding its release. Movie reports had it that “Jesus Revolution” now plays in about 2,475 theatres all over the nations, while “Cocaine Bear” is now playing in almost 2000 theatres. “Jesus Revolution” began showing on Wednesday and it’s expected to generate a lot more over this weekend.
“Jesus Revolution” is poised to be a box office success and a source of inspiration for audiences of all ages.
