According to Deadline, Lionsgate/Summit’s faith-based movie The Shack based on the bestselling William P. Young novel also saw gains in its second day of release of +11% or $6.1M putting its three-day opening at $16.1M in third. That’s the best for the faith-based genre in some time beating the first weekends  of War Room ($11.4M), Risen ($11.8M), and last year’s sleeper Miracles From Heaven ($14.8M).

Social media monitor Relish Mix points out that The Shack‘s social media universe across Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube views counts 42M which beats the 2016 average for a faith-based film’s SMU of 34M.
