Fireproof, which cost less than $1 million to make, passed the $20 million mark at the box office this weekend. Titanic, the highest-grossing movie of all time, cost $200 million to make and brought in a threefold return.
The pro-marriage Fireproof is the third feature film from Sherwood Pictures, the moviemaking ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Ga.
"We don't do this so that people will pat us on the back," Sherwood Senior Pastor Michael Catt said. "We do it for God's glory."
The Love Dare, a book featured in the movie, hit No. 1 on the New York Times paperback advice best-seller list, and is No. 10 among all books on Amazon.com.
Box office figures as of 10/22/2008: $21,237,931.
