Box office success for “Unplanned” continues to grow after total sales hit $17.2 million this weekend. With only a $6 million budget, Pureflix’s pro-life movie started making a profit on its opening weekend, after debuting with $6.1 million.
But box office success isn’t the only goal for the film’s supporters. It’s about changing hearts and lives. So one group is even planning to air the film on the public sidewalk right in front of the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Washington, DC at 1225 4th St. NE.
Their original plan to show it on Good Friday was delayed by weather, but they’re still planning to show it at that location. More here.
“Our hope is to launch a nationwide campaign to eventually show ‘Unplanned’ in front of Planned Parenthood abortion clinics across America,” explained Rev. Patrick Mahoney, director of the Christian Defense Coalition which is sponsoring this special viewing.
The film’s success comes despite roadblocks from the entertainment industry.
“‘Unplanned’ has been censored and discriminated against by social media giants, television networks and other outlets,” Mahoney says. He says it has faced an unprecedented blockade from Google and Twitter, with ads also being blocked by TV networks like Hallmark, Bravo, The Food Network, and Lifetime.
The movie is based on the pro-life transformation of a former Planned Parenthood abortion clinic director named Abby Johnson.
CBN News recently reported close to 100 abortion clinic workers have left their jobs since seeing the film.
