Christian Movies Earn Nearly Twice As Much As Non-Christian Movies!

An annual study of the major movies released theatrically in the United States continues to show that movies with very strong Christian worldviews do much better at the box office than movies with non-Christian worldviews.

The Christian Film & Television Commission ministry’s Annual Report to Hollywood, compiled by Chairman Ted Baehr and his staff of expert reviewers, shows that movies released in 2001 with a very strong Christian worldview earned nearly twice as much money (86 percent more) on average, $43,593,518, than movies with a very strong non-Christian or anti-Christian worldview (including humanist, pagan, Romantic, Communist, feminist, occult, homosexual, and anti-patriotic worldviews), which averaged only $23,422,536 when combined together.

Taken separately, movies released in 2001 with a very strong Christian worldview earned:

  • About 18 percent more money on average than movies with a very strong secular hu­manist worldview, which earned only $37 million on average in 2001;
  • About 60 percent more money on average than movies with a very strong occult worldview, which earned only $27.3 million on average in 2001;
  • About 80 percent more money on average than movies with a very strong pagan worldview, which earned only $24.2 million on average in 2001;
  • About 209 percent more money on average than movies with a very strong Romantic worldview, in a theological and philosophical sense, which earned only $14.1 million on average in 2001;
  • About 570 percent more money on average than movies with a very strong Communist worldview, which earned only $6.5 million on average in 2001;
  • About 8,407 percent more money on average than movies with a very strong homosexual worldview, which earned only $0.5 million on average in 2001;
  • About 9,004 percent more money on average than movies with a very strong feminist worldview, which earned only $0.48 million on average in 2001.
  • About 129,000 percent more money on average than movies with a very strong anti-patriotic worldview, which earned only $33,842 on average in 2001.

These numbers are similar to the Christian Film & Television Commission box office figures in 2000, when movies with a very strong Christian worldview averaged $42,882,055 at the box office, while movies with a very strong non-Christian worldview averaged only between $17,565 and $23,620,686.
