Perhaps you’ve heard of the pro-life movie, “Unplanned.” It tells the true story of a former Planned Parenthood clinic director who’s now a pro-life activist.
Despite the stunning lack of coverage from MSM, the movie has taken off. It was ranked #4 in the box office, earning over $6 million on its opening weekend. That’s despite only playing in a limited number of theaters (1,059).
The Hollywood Reporter says it’s “the second-best start ever for faith-based distributor Pure Flix behind God’s Not Dead 2 ($7.6 million).”
“We are thrilled, gratified and humbled,” “Unplanned” co-directors said in a statement. “We are so pleased that the American people have responded with such an enormous outpouring of support at the box office. It humbles us and we look forward to seeing what happens in the weeks ahead.”
There’s tremendous support online, too.
So good to see movie theaters across the country showing @UnplannedMovie — a deeply inspiring new pro-life film based on the best-selling book by @AbbyJohnson. More & more Americans are embracing the sanctity of life because of powerful stories like this one. #Unplanned

The MPAA slapped @UnplannedMovie with an unjustified “R” rating–so a 13-year-old girl can get an abortion w/o her parents even knowing, but can’t see a movie showing what abortion really is without being accompanied by an adult until she’s 17? #UnplannedTheMovie

Big Tech’s attempted censorship of @UnplannedMovie is deeply troubling. And reveling. Why is the Left so afraid of people seeing this powerful story? Regardless of where you fall on abortion, you owe it yourself to see this thought-provoking true story & decide for yourself. https://t.co/sfxsxULMb2

@UnplannedMovie was ranked #4 in the box office over the weekend on a quarter of the screens and it’s still crickets from @CNN and @MSNBC. Makes you wonder if they are scared or something. 🤔 #unplannedmovie

Another interesting tidbit? @UnplannedMovie’s followers now surpass Planned Parenthood’s on Twitter, and that’s without being verified.
Liberals can’t hide the truth forever. It’s getting out there, whether they like it or not.
