PROVO, Utah, March 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- VidAngel, the market-leading entertainment platform empowering users to filter language, nudity, violence, and other content from movies and TV shows, has been engaged in a high profile legal battle with Disney, Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox, and Lucasfilm. While these Hollywood studios work to eviscerate the 2005 Family Movie Act and prevent VidAngel from lawfully empowering parents and families to filter content on modern devices, the Utah-based company is offering its own original, family-friendly content for its fan base through VidAngel Studios.
Last weekend, VidAngel Studios offered its very first theatrical title in limited release, TIM TIMMERMAN, HOPE OF AMERICA. Endorsements and rave reviews from key organizations, a strong turnout by VidAngel fans, and enthusiastic responses from audiences contributed to the film's strong showing at the box office. TIMMERMAN boasted a per screen average of $4,095, putting the independent film at #2, right behind #1 20th Century Fox Film LOGAN in the Salt Lake City DMA.
"VidAngel was created on the premise that untold millions in America are looking for clean, high-quality content they can enjoy together as a family. Last weekend's success offers yet another proof point that this is true as audiences flocked to support TIM TIMMERMAN. We were blown away by the strong, enthusiastic response from moviegoers, they love this movie," said Neal Harmon, CEO of VidAngel. "Along with our partners, we're now looking to take this film national. Clearly, TIM TIMMERMAN has what it takes to succeed."
VidAngel Studios, Picture Picture Films, and Purdie Distribution were behind the exclusive, limited theatrical release of TIM TIMMERMAN, HOPE OF AMERICA. Rated PG-13, TIM TIMMERMAN screened at select Megaplex and Cinemark Theatres throughout Utah initially, and will now be followed by a nationwide expansion.
