the #3 film at the box office it's opening weekend, eventually drawing
more than $50MM worldwide, and continuing the trend of successful
stories of faith being told on the big screen. With an A Cinemascore
(one of the top nine films scored by audiences this year), Joyce Smith's
story of faith resonated with families everywhere.
"BREAKTHROUGH's home entertainment release gives us an opportunity to
showcase some of the incredible footage grabbed on set that we couldn't
include in the theatrical experience," said DeVon Franklin, Producer of
BREAKTHROUGH and well-known to faith audiences for theatrical hits
including MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN and THE STAR. "We included deleted scenes
and bonus features with never-before-seen footage with cast and crew
shot during the film's production."
When Joyce Smith's (Chrissy Metz) adopted son John (Marcel Ruiz) falls
through an icy Missouri lake, all hope seems lost as John lies lifeless.
In the face of every bleak medical case history and dire scientiﬁc
prediction, Joyce's unwavering belief inspires her community to pray for
John's recovery. Based on the incredible true story, BREAKTHROUGH is an
enthralling reminder that faith and love can create a mountain of hope,
and sometimes even a miracle.
