Movie to Movement producer Jason Jones thinks that the film Unplanned about Abby Johnson’s transformation from Planned Parenthood manager and advocate to ardent pro-life activist could be the Uncle Tom’s Cabin of abortion. The pro-life argument has been thoroughly defended over the years, but the cultural component may have just arrived:
The biopic — which details Planned Parenthood defector Abby Johnson’s dramatic journey from abortion mouthpiece to pro-life crusader — has taken in an estimated $6,110,000 this weekend, expected to become the #5 movie at the box office.
The film was projected to bring in less than half of what it’s generated thus far.
Notably, “Unplanned” ($6 million budget) racked up a cumulative per-screen average of $5,770 per screen, edging out big-budget flick “Captain Marvel” ($152 million budget).
“Unplanned” has also dominated in audience reviews, scoring a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes and earning an A+ rating from CinemaScore.
