This pro-life movie destroyed all expectations and Hollywood isn’t happy

Hollywood is known as the beacon for progressive values.

They’ve made a point to shove every radical liberal idea down the throats of Americans.

But this pro-life movie blew away box office expectations and Hollywood isn’t happy.

Unplanned is the story of Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director who defected after witnessing an abortion at 13 weeks.

Hollywood tried every trick in the book and fought tooth-and-nail to have it canned.

Several TV networks refused to play ads for the movie.

It was given an “R” rating which the film’s producers unsuccessfully fought to overturn.

Even the film’s Twitter account was briefly suspended.

Despite all the roadblocks, Unplanned shattered expectations.

The film opened to a shocking $6 million from 1,059 theaters in the U.S. box office when it was only expected to bring in half that.

The faith-based distributor, Pure Flix, the same company behind the popular God’s Not Dead series, say it’s the second-biggest start for the company.

While most theaters generally see liberal behemoths like New York City and Los Angeles populate the top 20 grossing theaters, Unplanned got its backing from Trump country in places like the Midwest and South.

“We are thrilled, gratified and humbled,” co-directors Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman said Sunday 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.”

The film was partially financed by My Pillow founder, Mike Lindell, who is a born-again Christian and fierce defender of President Trump.

It’s refreshing to see a movie do well at the box office that reflects the beliefs and values of so many on the conservative side.

Especially a film with a powerful backstory like Abby Johnson’s.

“To bring the story of Abby Johnson to audiences and have them show up in such large numbers shows how abortion is so important to bring to audiences,” said Pure Flix CEO Michael Scott. “We hope that those on both sides of the debate will see Unplanned and begin to have their own dialogue. This film can be that spark to bring more hearts and minds to understanding the value of life.”

Do you think more films should include messages like the one in Unplanned?

    • Saw this movie and was so moved to see audience completely full and very moved with the message that life is a gift that should be accepted not murdered.

  1. Disregard the R rating and take your teenagers to see it. They are constantly taught about the women’s right but they need to see the other side of the story.

  2. Thank you for showing Unplanned. Yes, more films like this should be shown to get people to think about their choices. God Bless Yoy for standing up for your conviction! Jan Daniels

  3. Murder is murder, is murder, etc. Anybody who would murder innocent babies is sick. There is a special place in Hell for them!

  4. Slapping on the “R” rating is perhaps the most sneaky, underhanded and vile attempt to subterfuge this message that can be imagined. Locate and replace or eliminate those responsible for this act of ultimate indecency.

  5. Great that finally Americans are seeing the truth instead of all the crap generally seen on the big screen. Abortion is murder…nothing that is nothing does not grow into a human being…too bad some folks didn’t have mothers who decided on aborting them. Thanks Mike for helping out and thanks for some in the industry for having the courage to produce and show this movie. All teens should have to see it.

  6. I am and always was pro life. I even went to the right to life march when I could in D.C….BUT THIS MOVIE IS RIVETING..Thank god for the people who made it possible . It shows what a disgusting outfit planned parenthood is .amen.

  7. I am some what of a gardener. I plant seeds and if left alone in fertile soil they will grow into a fruitful plant. No different with humans, anytime after inception it is a potential person. God will bring all to judgement one day for killing the chance for his spirit children to get a body of flesh and bone and experience life on earth.

  8. Murder is murder, is murder, etc. Anybody who would murder innocent babies is sick. There is a special place in Hell for them! THIS STATEMENT IS RIGHT ON. MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON THEIR SOULS. READ THE BIBLE ABOUT THE LOVE JESUS HAS FOR LITTLE CHILDREN.

  9. This movie didn’t come out of Hollywood. The manure CAPITAL of Western civilization.
    America is going to reap what it has been sowing for YEARs.

  10. A wonderful movie after many states are allowing infanticide. We need to be a country that honors life. Please bring on more Christian movies.

  11. Loved what I have read about this movie. Hope it comes to Spokane so I can see it first hand. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  12. Abortion activists are already born and here, so kill everybody else? If it were their
    lives on the line would they be Pro-Abortion? I think not.

  13. Any thing that will make people recognize the jnsanity of trimester abortion I’m all for. THERE is no reason for killing a baby just because it has come at a so called bad time. I had a cousin born with problems and scoliosis. He raised two children of his own and adopted son strong and healthy. He never made much money, but he took handicaped foster kids into his home. Two of his adopted sons children were born with problems one almost didn’t make it. He is talented in music an ordained Minister. the other had deformed hands and is a skilled welder, we miss my cousins infectous laugh an wonderful personality that made him a joy to all that knew him, and discovered a man that was 10 ft tall above his shoulders.

  14. Everyone should forward this item to all of their friends — especially those who are on the opposite side of the political spectrum. Promote this movie wherever you can. Its worth far exceeds much of the garbage that comes out of Hollywood these days.

  15. Of course – the Hollywood whores know everything. They couldn’t get a real job so they became actors. Give another 15 to 20 years and all the kids born to actors will all be related to each other. That is why I do not go to the theater or watch their movies on tv. I cannot be a part of that kid of environment. I choose to be a kind, gentile human and do what a good citizen should do. Many actors have said that if Mr. Trump got elected that they would leave the United States for good. They are still here. They have no backbone and ignore what is right to do all the wrong that they can. They should all be invited to leave the United States and never return. How about Mexico or Honduras or Guatemala. Those countries have lots of land available now that those countries citizens have left to come to America. The actors can buy land dirt cheap!

  16. If pro abortion people saw this movie, there would be fewer abortions. Actually ” seeing “abortions makes one face
    what happens.

  17. The movie was very well done. Glad to see a different view than what the media portrays. Super happy to see the viewing. Yes the theater I was in I was surprised almost all seats were filled on a mid week mid day showing.

  18. I have watched several interviews and am so VERY THANKFUL for what the Lord GOD did in the heart and soul of Abbey Johnson as her eyes were opened to TRUTH, and she could not continue in such a murderous, money-hungry organization of Planned Parenthood!!

    I’m so VERY THANKFUL for all those who put-forth what was needed to make this movie, for the message NEEDS to be SEEN with eyes wide-open; removing the lies that have been constantly pushed in our faces…SO THANKFUL TO EACH AND EVERY ONE WHO MADE IT POSSIBLE, and FOR THE ACTORS…WHO BROUGHT IT TO THE GREAT LEVEL THE STORY DESERVES!!

    GOD BLESS YOU EACH AND EVERY ONE….AND I’M EXCITED TO SEE WHAT THE LORD GOD BRINGS FORTH; AS HIS BLESSINGS OVER THE SPREADING OF THIS GREAT TRUTH BEING TOLD, FOR THE LIVES OF THESE PRECIOUS, PRECIOUS DEFENSELESS BABIES…CREATIONS OF GOD.

    How I pray for complete utter destruction over this EVIL PRACTICE of MURDER!! SHAME ON US THAT IT HAS GONE ON THIS LONG!!

  19. Hollywood is very evil because they worship Satan and Child Sex Trafficking as well as the Child sacrifice killings that go along with their Satan worshipping. They sold their souls to Satan for wealth and so-called Stardom. Like I said Hollywood is evil. we must all Boycott Hollywood and their filth that they produce.

  20. We need more films like this, our kids see murder as a video game where the victim pops up in the next scene, they have to be taught how cruel it really is, we have to teach them empathy to combat the violence.

  21. Is this a Hollywood movie? Really? This could be Mike Lindels’ next pillow product. Great to have a movie about how things really are.

  22. Can’t wait to go see this movie. So proud that someone has the guts to bring this true real life story to the big screen. THIS IS THE MOVIE DEMS DON’T WANT DEMS OR ANYONE TO SEE BECAUSE IT EXPOSES THE TRUTH AND MORE IMPORTANTLY EDUCATES THE PUBLIC AS TO WHAT REALLY HAPPENS AT PLANNED PARENTHOOD WHEN IT ABORTS A LIVING CHILD. ALL LIBERAL NEWS STATIONS WOULD NOT AIR THE ADS FOR THIS MOVIE TO KEEP AMERICANS IN THE DARK. THIS IS ABOUT THE SAME COMPANY WHO MAKES MONEY OFF SELLING ABORTED BABY BODY PARTS. IMAGE RE-PIECING TOGETHER BABY BODY PARTS TO MAKE SURE ALL OF IT WAS REMOVED AND FOR ACCOUNTING PURPOSES FOR SALES! PLEASE KEEP THIS MOVING IN THE THEATERS AND KEEP PROMOTING IT!!!!!!!!!! EVERY ONE WHO IS PRO LIFE SHOULD KEEP POSTING ABOUT THIS MOVING AND BRING EVERYONE YOU CAN TO GO SEE IT.

  23. Hollyweird still thinks their opinions matter! I just ignore their threats and vole display of arrogance. Thinking they can tell the rest of America what to do. Haters gonna hate and they are definately haters. I love Pure Flicks movies. Christian based entertainment! Boooooyaaaa!🙏🙏

  24. Having studied “Retail Marketing” at a “tech” college under the G.I. Bill in the 70’s, I have an understanding of how sales and marketing should work. When the press, Hollywood, suppressed TV coverage and the entirety of a political party, throws its entire weight behind killing a product including banning it from points of distribution…it should have died or not even gotten started. However, the God honoring heart of something that tells the truth about the taking of life from the innocent has overcome the very power of Satan himself. When the lie of abortion has the light of truth shown on it…the people who have been deceived by that lie are unchained and will never go back. Here’s a very old statement to that effect…John 8:32 KJV “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Once someone has tasted real freedom, the desire to ever go back to bondage is gone forever.

  25. DO you realize that because of the R rating, a young lady, say 15 or 16 years of age needs parental permission to see it. but they do not need any parental involvement or even notification to get an abortion! How evil is that? How much more wicked can this country be? Perhaps Hollywood will have enough abortions that they will become extinct. One would think the left would destroy itself with its abortion at any stage and even after the child is born-

  26. All for abortions their mother’s should have aborted them.
    That would save all aborted babies today.
    We reap what we sow, more than we sow and later than we sow.
    God knows all and is not pleased with destroying His children.
    Be responsible, choose one of the 20 birth controls and don’t get pregnant.

  27. Yes absolutely we need more films like this! I was disappointed that there were few people in the theater when I went to see the movie. But I was at the early showing. So maybe the evening showing was more populated. As soon as I got home, I recommended that all my Facebook friends see it and take their children.
