Christian romance film "I Still Believe" landed the No. 2 spot in the box office opening weekend, March 13-15. For debuting films, it was No. 1.
The film made $9.5 million, coming behind Disney's "Onward" at $60.3 million, Deadline reports. Movie theater attendance hit a 40-year low this weekend as 109 theaters closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, according to IndieWire.
The Lionsgate faith-based film features the story of Christian singer Jeremy Camp's first marriage. The movie follows Camp as he meets Melissa Lynn Henning. The two decide to marry despite knowing that Henning has ovarian cancer.
The movie is named after Camp's hit song "I Still Believe," which he wrote after his wife died in 2001, just months after their wedding.
