Despite a small budget, actor Kevin Sorbo, best known for his roles in the long-running TV series “Hercules” and film “God’s Not Dead,” and actress and writer Sam Sorbo’s new film “Let There Be Light” was in the top 10 at the box office during its first three weeks.
The family-friendly, faith-based film “Let There Be Light” opened October 27, 2017, and “has been performing quite well on a $3 million budget, with a $600k rebate,” said Kevin Sorbo. “[W]e shot it for $2.4 million.”
The low budget film opened on approximately “350 screens” and can now be seen on about “770 screens,” noted Sorbo. The film had a “top 5 per screen average with a number 2 weekend one.”
“We are up against all the big Hollywood movies and holding our own,” stated Kevin Sorbo. “We have offers to expand to over 1000 screens, but with our P and A budget used up, we are staying where we are. We will close in on $7.5 million or more when this weekend is over.”
The film heads into its fourth straight weekend, currently ranked ninth on Box Office Mojo, but Kevin Sorbo says the film is really just getting started:
“We have great offers from all digital companies and Amazon looks like our best move. We have countries around the globe wanting the movie and have those wheels in motion as well as digital worldwide through other countries.”
