LOS ANGELES, Nov. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On the heels of his record-breaking one-night movie release (UNSTOPPABLE), the latest movie from actor and filmmaker KIRK CAMERON, SAVING CHRISTMAS (www.savingchristmas.com), had an impressive opening weekend November 14-16. Released in only 400 theaters across the country, the opening box office for KIRK CAMERON'S SAVING CHRISTMAS totaled $1 million.
"I love hearing from people who saw the movie and now are inspired to put Christ back in Christmas," said Cameron, known for his role in the sitcom GROWING PAINS and his record-breaking documentaries MONUMENTAL and UNSTOPPABLE. "My hope is that families will continue to see the film and join with my family and focus on the true reason for the season. My hope is the film continues to touch hearts and help reorient believers back toward Christ during the Christmas season."
KIRK CAMERON'S SAVING CHRISTMAS is an engaging film that provides a biblical basis for time-honored traditions and celebrations, and the inspiration to stand strongly against a culture that wants to trivialize and eliminate the faith elements of this holy season. Successful showings were held in 400 theaters in cities across the U.S., including Los Angeles, New York City, Atlanta, Dallas, Orlando, Houston, and more.
Leading up to the film's release, Cameron embarked on a packed media tour in markets that included Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta, Nashville, and New York City. He shared his insights and excitement on national entertainment and news programs including The Today Show, Fox & Friends, and Fox News' Outnumbered.
Executive produced by Cameron, SAVING CHRISTMAS is presented by Nashville-based Provident Films and Cameron's production company CAMFAM Studios and distributed by Samuel Goldwyn Films. CAMFAM is also partnering on the production with Liberty University, as it did in a previous film release, UNSTOPPABLE.
