Grammy Award nominated singer Deitrick Haddons second film venture, A Beautiful Soul, enjoyed robust box office receipts in its limited engagement premiere this past weekend at 20 AMC Theaters in 11 markets such as Chicago, Philadelphia, Indianapolis and Haddon”s native Detroit.

Variety magazine calls the film, “a natural for young, Christian oriented audiences”. The film has done so well that AMC Theaters has extended the run another week to accommodate the public demand to see the movie.

“It was humbling to see a dream manifested this weekend, Haddon says. The fact that the film opened in theaters was a success; the fan support was overwhelming and we are grateful”. Haddon”s co-partners echo his sentiments. 

I am so happy to play a part in an effort that is helping to take the gospel message to the mainstream audience, says Holly Carter of Releve Entertainment. This was a small step to a big vision! To God be the glory!

“I am excited about the success we are experiencing, not just with movie tickets sold, but with lives being changed, says Bryant Scott of Tyscot ManHaddon FilmsThis movie is having a powerful, positive impact on people, including those who have not been regular church goers.  To sum it up, God is using this film in a major way to change lives, and that’s what it’s all about.”

This movie comes on the heels of Haddon”s 2010 debut “Blessed & Cursed” which has sold over 100,000 copies as a direct to DVD film. It”s also aired on the GMC Channel and Showtime. Aside from Haddon, who stars as an R&B singer named Andre Stephens, the film also stars Harry Lennix (The Matrix, The Five Heartbeats, Barbershop 2) as Jeff Freeze, Robert Ri”chard (One on One, Coach Carter, The Matrix) as Chris Scott, Lesley Ann Brandt (Spartacus, Diplomatic Immunity) as Angela Berry, and Barry Floyd (The Game) as Terrance Wilson.
