Faith-Based Film Reaches No. 2 at Box Office

Faith-based film “Unsung Hero,” which tells the true story of the Smallbone family, reached the No. 2 spot at the box office during its opening weekend.

Joel and Luke Smallbone are singers in the Christian band For King & Country. Their sister, Rebecca St. James, is also a contemporary Christian singer.

The film made nearly $7.8 million during its opening weekend.

Kevin Downes, Co-Founder and CEO of Kingdom Story Company, told The Daily Wire, “We are thrilled that families in America see themselves in ‘UNSUNG HERO.’ It’s a beautiful story about resiliency and reliance on faith, which we know is a strong message that our country needs right now.”

The film’s description reads as follows: “When David Smallbone’s successful music company collapses, he moves his family from Australia to the United States in search of a brighter future. With nothing more than their six children, their suitcases, and their love of music, David (for KING + COUNTRY’s Joel Smallbone) and his pregnant wife Helen (Daisy Betts) set out to rebuild their lives from the ground up. Based on a remarkable true story, a mum’s faith stands against all odds; and inspires her husband and children to hold onto theirs.”

Luke Smallbone told former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, “The heartbeat behind the movie is this: I believe in the power of family. I think family is more important today than it ever has been in the history of the world.”

“Mother Theresa said, ‘If you want to change the world, go home and love your family,'” he added. “And that’s really the heartbeat behind the film.”
