War Room’s” success was one of the only bright spots in an otherwise flat film weekend at the multiplexes. Overall ticket sales are still being calculated, but it is shaping up to be one of the worst Labor Day holidays over the past decade.The $3 million production from brothers Alex Kendrick andStephen Kendrick brought in $12.6 million over the four-day holiday. The film has earned $27.9 million and is on track to be the biggest hit of the Kendricks’ careers.

The film offered family audiences a chance to see a film that positively reflects good values. There are two reasons that this film succeeded and surpassed  its successors  ‘God Is Not Dead‘, ‘Heaven Is Real‘, ‘Courageous‘ and ‘Fireproof ‘.

Shirer, a prominent Christian speaker and author making her film debut) and Tony (T.C. Stallings), a successful pharmaceutical rep.
