Moviegoers want more faith-based films. According to a survey of 1,054 Americans from Nashville-based LifeWay Research, half of Americans (56 percent) say they wish there were more movies with Christian values.

Bob Smietana, senior writer for LifeWay Christian Resources’ Facts and Trends magazine, wrote:

Hollywood’s “year of the Bible movie” continues to drive sales at the box office in 2014.

Four faith-based films have already earned more than $50 million each in ticket sales, according to Boxofficemojo.com. Those films—“Noah,” “Heaven is for Real,” “Son of God,” and “God’s Not Dead”—are among the top 20 grossing films of 2014.

And movie audiences may want more, according to a survey of 1,054 Americans from Nashville-based LifeWay Research. Researchers found that half of Americans (56 percent) say they wish there were more movies with Christian values.

“Faith-based movies are no longer a niche,” said Scott McConnell, director of LifeWay Research. “It’s smart economics—if you make a film that appeals to that audience, they will show up.”
