A biopic about evangelist Billy Graham hit theaters with a thud its opening weekend Oct. 10-12, earning far less than other religion-themed movies like Fireproof and Bill Maher's agnostic comedy documentary Religulous.
Billy: The Early Years, directed by former teen-heartthrob actor Robby Benson, grossed an estimated $199,938 from 282 locations, an average of $709 per screen, according to Variety.
It stars Armie Hammer, the 22-year-old great-grandson of industrialist and philanthropist Armand Hammer, in his first major acting role....
I'm NOT surprised that "Billy: The Early Years falls flat in box office".
As I mentioned before, had the Director & Producers included the Memoirs, Journals & Correspondence Between Young "Billy Graham" & Seasoned Historic American Revivalist/Evangelist Dr. Bob Jones Sr.; and presented Young "Billy Graham" according to The Historic UnAdulterated TRUTH--
The "movie" would've been a COMPLETE SUCCESS--
Not ONLY in EXPOSING "Billy Graham" as A "Fundamentalist" Fraud, A "Hocus-Pocus-Vaticanist-Compromising" Hoax;
But ALSO as an Attempted "33rd-Degreed Masonic" Infiltrator of Historic American Biblical-Literalist Judeo-Christian Fundamentalism !
I remember when Robby Benson played a Hasidic Jewish Rabbi's Son & other roles in the 70s/80s:
But Jewish actor Armie Hammer; Grandson to Socialist-Communist Armand Hammer as "Graham" ?
Jewish Director Benson should've consulted with TRUE Judeo-Christian Fundamentalists From BJU & Abroad;
Instead of The Cabal of "Billy-Grahamite"-Apostates, Compromisers & Satanic-Vaticanist 'Protestant'-"Evangelicals" like Robert Schuller, Norman Vincent Peale, Pat Robertson & The Host of Other New-Age 33rd-Degreed Mason$, P$eudo-Prote$tant$ & Pro-Romani$t$ like Graham, Hi$ $pon$or William Randolph Hear$t & Rupert Murdoch ala Hi$ NIV !
