The movie Heaven is for Real is definitely at the top. The message it gives is ideal for the Easter holiday season.

This Easter Sunday a slew of movies came up on the big screen horizon. One of these that takes the baton from the rest is Heaven is for Real. This film has brought in revenues exceeding $22 million which says a lot about its pulling power. In fact, by the time it finishes with its audiences, it may have grossed $29 million. 

According to Deadline, "The holy holiday brings a couple of other surprises as the best newcomer of the weekend, Heaven Is For Real, is now expected to have a 3-day gross of $21.5M to $22M+ for a $9,200 per screen, far above any other picture in the Top Ten. And, depending how much of a drop off there is today, it may end its 5-day run with $29M+. That’s a nice sum for a picture that Sony says has a $12M negative cost (not including marketing)."

The movie includes in its list of stars: Greg Kinnear, Kelly Reilly and Connor Corum. Not only does it cater to a religious set of viewers but it is also a source of interesting scenic narrative for an audience more relaxed in faith-based matters. 

“The film definitely played not only to a faith-based audience but to a mainstream audience as well,” said Rory Bruer, president of worldwide distribution. “The title itself provokes dialogue no matter what you believe. It’s based on a book and the true story of this family, so it makes it all that more compelling.”

Some other movies besides Heaven is for Real which appeared include: Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Rio 2, Transcendence, A Haunted House 2, Bears and Draft Day. Heaven is for Real is the third most popular movie directly after Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Rio 2. 

According to HuffPost, "When Hollywood decided to make a movie of Todd Burpo's international bestseller, Heaven Is For Real, they could have really messed it up. They could have made it too saccharine; they could have made it too religious; they could have made it too far out there for anyone to want to understand. But they didn't. They gave it to Randall "Braveheart" Wallace to direct and he made a movie that everyone will want to see it and most will appreciate."

The movie is basically about a pastor named Todd whose little son Colton has a major operation due to a ruptured appendix. The boy starts talking about strange things the moment he recovers from the operation. He mentions how he met with Jesus in heaven. The boy also tells his father that he giggled with angels when he was up there and that he met several people including a boy that was his mother’s miscarried son. 

Some of the things the boy tells his dad are stuff that he could not have known about all by himself. It was virtually impossible that he could have had previous knowledge about so much vital information. His father doesn’t believe him in the beginning but later on starts having doubts. 

 

Finally, he does put his trust and faith in the boy although he has a hard time discussing the event with the church members. The movie delivers a solid message of faith in God and things unseen on the holy day of Easter. It has been appreciated by everyone whether Christian or non-Christian.
