Saturday’s Warrior Cracks Top 30 Grossing Films on Opening Weekend

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

For those only familiar with the 1989 BYU recording, it may comes as a surprise that the original stage production was a hit success beyond anyone’s wildest imaginations.

Shows were sold out night after night (including 246 consecutive shows in Salt Lake City) and it got to the point where Saturday’s Warrior sold more tickets in two hours in Phoenix than Elton John did in two weeks. Now, the newly released 2016 movie adaptation is gaining the same sort of traction.

On its opening weekend, with just nine theaters in Utah showing the film, Saturday’s Warrior cracked into the top 30 grossing films in the United States. It all began with the premiere, which quickly turned from one screen for select guests and cast to five sold out theaters. The enthusiasm doesn’t seem to be slowing down, with new theaters being added to the showing list at every chance. Saturday’s Warrior is following a platform release model, which means if you want to see the film you better click here to request it in your city.
