“War Room” stands strong after 7 weeks at the Box Office

The prayer-themed film marks the highest debut for the Kendrick brothers, and their fifth collaboration after Courageous (2011), Fireproof (2008) and Facing the Giants (2006). Their first movie, Flywheel, was released on DVD in 2003. All of their projects have been distributed through Sony’s faith-based TriStar/Affirm label. When asked about their critics’ negative reviews of their faith-based project, Alex said he takes them with a smile. “Some of our critics, especially the secular critics, will accuse us of preaching to the choir and accuse us of not hitting our proper audience, which is hilarious to me because we know our audience,” he said. “They’re not coming at it from our worldview. We get that. All of us have free will. It is a little bit of a hoot sometimes to read what they perceive even as our target audience.”
Following the success of “War Room”, the minister brothers are going to take a year off to spend time with family and friends before returning to the writers’ room for their sixth film.  http://goo.gl/1w5RKd
