I heard that Courageous did very well in its opening weekend. According to the FB wall of one of pages I’m a fan of, the opening weekend of Courageous looked like this:
1) More than 1 million people saw COURAGEOUS this weekend. That's a lot of lives changed!
2) Total box-office was $9.0 million, $2.2 million more than Fireproof on opening weekend.
3) It was the #1 new movie of the weekend! Per-screen, COURAGEOUS averaged $7,752, almost doubling everyone else!
Wow, well done. Now, I really can’t wait until I see that movie on Philippine shores.
What makes me even more excited is that one of my favorite Christian bands, Casting Crowns (known most for, “Who Am I?”), did the theme song for the movie, titled (what else?) Courageous.
The band’s lead singer and songwriter, Mark Hall, talks about the meaning behind this wonderful song. He’s a pretty funny guy, yet this video short hits home.
Now, I’m proud to present the official video of Courageous. Enjoy!
I truly can’t wait to see this movie. For those of you who have already seen it, and would like to mentor others on the principles featured in it, I suggest you purchase the Courageous Campaign Kit . It has clips from the movie and a good study guide to mentor the dads in your life to raise their kids in a Godly way.
Casting Crowns also placed out a parenting-based song a while back, and I featured it in one of my articles for Father’s Day. Check out the article here, while I repost the video below.
Anyway, thank you Mark Hall and Casting Crowns, for making a great movie even greater, thanks to your song, Courageous.
