It’s true “God’s Not Dead” didn’t get its fair share of the spotlight in its opening weeks, especially with the light shining so brightly on juggernaut “Noah."

But now, the Christian-based drama is spreading its impact across the country.

The film’s website recently published a map that shows where in the country the movie can be seen. It’s crowded — packed with pins of where to see the movie. From the Northeast to the Southwest, the availability is expanding with hundreds more theaters showing the film.

Starting Friday, new cities in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia and Iowa will all get a chance to check out the film, according to the website.

So far it's been successful. Kandra Polatis recently wrote for Deseret News National that “God’s Not Dead” climbed to the fifth spot at the box office in its opening weekend, coming in behind popular offerings like “Divergent” and “Muppets Most Wanted."

"Agnostics out there who kind of believe, kind of don’t ... these are the independent voters," said star Kevin Sorbo about the movie to The Blaze. "We want them to come over to the right side."
