Global Phenomenon Presented in Conjunction with Angel Studios Grosses over $14.4 million in U.S. Box Office Making it Fathom's Best Performer in Company History
DENVER, Dec. 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Angel Studio's The Chosen – the global phenomenon, multi-episode television drama based on the life of Jesus – just made history again with Fathom Events by becoming the highest-grossing event in company history, selling over 1.2 million tickets and grossing over $14.4 million at the U.S. box office.
The first two episodes of Season Three premiered on Friday, November 18, and placed second in gross U.S. box office revenue for that day. It placed 3rd overall that weekend and was subsequently extended to run until December 8, 2022.
"While we are unbelievably proud to see The Chosen become the highest-grossing event in our company's history, we are equally excited to have added 400+ theater exhibitor affiliates, including international partners, to the Fathom Network to support this, and future events, said Ray Nutt, CEO of Fathom Events. This success proves that event cinema is not just to fill gaps between blockbusters; it exists to provide premium content to audiences who will return to theaters to have the big screen experience."
"Angel has spent years building a dedicated audience around this series, not just people who will watch but fans who will take action. That audience turned out in force for this event, and we plan to use this same tactic to launch numerous other Angel Originals in theaters in the near future," said Jordan Harmon , President of Angel Studios.
The Chosen Season 3: Episode 1 & 2 surpasses Fathom's previous highest-grossing event Christmas With The Chosen: The Messengers, which is part of the same franchise. It was also Fathom's first event with Angel Studios and grossed 14.2 million in U.S. gross box office.
