According to a Movieguide report, films with faith and moral values make more money at the Box Office than films with explicit sex, foul language, or nudity. In 2017, the most family-friendly movies averaged $51.70 million per film, while the least averaged $11.67 million.
“Movies with very strong secular humanist or atheist content or worldviews did even worse, averaging only $1.16 million per movie!” Tom Snyder of Charisma News reported.
Movieguide identified 75 movies from 2017 with Christian or redemptive content, an increase of 60% from 2012. These totaled $5.68 billion at the box office in Canada and the United States.
“Despite a couple disturbing trends, 2017 was another big year for family movies and movies with faith and values,” Dr. Ted Baehr, founder and publisher of Movieguide, said.
