SALT LAKE CITY – Director T.C. Christensen’s new film, “17 Miracles,” is doing well at the box office.
“17 Miracles,” which opened June 3, has earned more money per location than movies like “X-Men: First Class,” “Kung Fu Panda 2,” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” according to distributor Excel Entertainment, a division of Deseret Book Company. An Excel release reported that “17 Miracles” earned more than $3,200 per location on Monday, while playing on only 12 screens. The national per location average for “X-Men: First Class” was less than $1,600.
“It’s very satisfying when you release a local film that can compete with the best films in the country,” said Bob Ahlander, director of music and film at Deseret Book. “T.C. Christensen has made a wonderful movie that really resonates with the families in our community.”
Due to demand for the film, Cinemark doubled the number of theaters playing “17 Miracles” along the Wasatch Front. Other theaters also began showing the film on larger screens in order to accommodate the number of sold out shows.
