War Room, distributed by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, topped the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert Sales Chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray unit sales, for the week that ended on January 3.
Having debuted at number two, behind the purchasing of a faith-based audience and a $67.8 million box office, the film by Alex and Stephen Kendrick had already well exceeded its $3 million budget.
In the film, Tony (T.C. Stallings) and Elizabeth (Priscilla Shirer) Jordan have it all—great jobs, a beautiful daughter, and their dream house. But appearances can be deceiving. Tony and Elizabeth Jordan’s world is actually crumbling under the strain of a failing marriage. While Tony basks in his professional success and flirts with temptation, Elizabeth resigns herself to increasing bitterness. But their lives take an unexpected turn when Elizabeth meets her newest client, Miss Clara (Karen Abercrombie), and is challenged to establish a “war room” and a battle plan of prayer for her family. As Elizabeth tries to fight for her family, Tony’s hidden struggles come to light. Tony must decide if he will make amends to his family and prove Miss Clara’s wisdom that victories don’t come by accident.
As the Kendricks aimed at making prayer a more tangible part of every Christian’s life, the film’s power at the box office has translated to the home media audience as well. “All we’ve done is try to tell the best stories we could tell,” Alex Kendrick said. “We can make a movie but God has to change a heart. We’ve learned that when we start to take credit, that God says, ‘Oh, yeah?’”
