Amid considerable pushback, the pro-life motion picture “Unplanned” had a successful first weekend in Canada, averaging approximately $7,000 per screen.
The film’s directors say they are encouraged by the showing though the opposition has been significant and multi-faceted.
According to tribute.ca, for the weekend of July 12, the movie — which tells the story of former Planned Parenthood clinic director turned pro-life advocate Abby Johnson — came in at number 18 in the top 20 movies in North America.
The film was released in the United States in March but it faced obstacles in being shown in Canada. It became available in dozens of theaters in Canada beginning Friday, averaging of $7,041 per screen.
