The faith-based drama, War Room, has surprised us all with $3.8 million at the box office in its first night. That number isn’t huge like whom they tied with (Straight Outta Compton, $60 million in the first weekend), but it only showed in 1,135 theaters. Straight Outta Compton is currently playing in 3,142 theaters and is on its third week. It is projected to end around $12 million in sales while War Room is looking to finish around $10 million on the weekend.

CinemaScore gave War Room an A+ score, which is very nice for the brother Stephen and Alex Kendrick. Those two directed and produced the film, which was their fifth movie together.

War Room shows the story of a family who uses prayer to find answers to their struggles.
