'War Room' takes the lead movie position

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The faith-based drama War Room, shot by the Kendrick brothers of Albany, took the top movie slot over the Labor Day weekend.

'War Room' took in an estimated $9.4 million in 1,526 locations. With a budget of just $3 million, War Room has out performed all expectations since its $11.4 million debut last weekend, and its domestic total is now at $24.7 million.

The PG-rated War Room has benefited from being one of the only faith-based films in theaters recently, and it's the latest Christian hit from brothers Alex and Stephen Kendrick.

The brothers have started their own production company since leaving the Sherwood Production team.
