Nashville, TN: – September 26, 2013 – Audiences have once again shown their loyalty and support for Kirk Cameron as the results are in from UNSTOPPABLE, which prove that audiences will head to the theater for quality projects, even on a weeknight.
The estimated $2MM box office (unaudited numbers via Rentrak) would rank the film 1st or 2nd for Tuesday night, rivaling the Hugh Jackman/Toby McGuire vehicle Prisoner, which came in at $2.1MM.
On Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2013 actor and producer Kirk Cameron debuted UNSTOPPABLE: A Live Event with Kirk Cameron in more than 700 select movie theaters across the country through NCM Fathom Events, in partnership with Provident Films.
More than 150,000 tickets were sold for UNSTOPPABLE in which Cameron was linked in live to theaters from The Vines Center at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va. Select locations added an additional showing the same evening due to overwhelming demand.
Due to the demand, and a large number of sold out shows on Sept 24, an encore presentation is now scheduled for Thursday, October 3, 2013 at 7:00pm local time in more than 660 movie theaters. Select theaters are already sold-out or near sell-out in many markets including Springfield, Mo.; Tulsa, Okla.; San Antonio, Texas; Fort Wayne, Ind.; Phoenix, Ariz.; and Bakersfield, Calif., among others. Ticket and theater information are available at www.unstoppablethemovie.com.
Interest from audiences and media outlets grew stronger after it was discovered that both Facebook and YouTube initially blocked UNSTOPPABLE’s trailer labeling it as “unsafe” and “abusive.” Cameron’s supporters immediately rallied online support and the incidents were resolved.
Cameron calls UNSTOPPABLE his “most personal” project to date as he invites audiences to join him on a powerful, visual journey to better understand the biggest doubt-raising question in faith: “Where is God in the midst of tragedy and suffering?”
Kirk Cameron is best known for his memorable role of “Mike Seaver,” a cultural icon of the 80′s, with his mullet hairstyle, cool glasses, and wisecracking comebacks. More recently he enjoyed much success with the No. 1 grossing inspirational film of 2008, Fireproof, and his recent documentary, Monumental. Kirk and his wife Chelsea live in California with their six children.
