6. "All Saints" grossed $5,802,208 (Sony)

All Saints
From the studios that brought you "War Room" and "Miracles From Heaven" comes "All Saints," in theaters August 25. |

"All Saints" was released in 846 theaters on Aug. 25 and features "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" actor John Corbett as the lead in a true story that reminds viewers to embrace the people who cross their path.

"All Saints" is based on an inspiring true story that took place in 2008 involving a reverend who helped a group of impoverished Southeast Asian (Burmese) refugees make their home in the United States. In turn, they helped him save his small church.

Alongside Corbett, the AFFIRM films movie also features Cara Buono ("Stranger Things"), and the "Queen of Clean" Christian comedian Chonda Pierce.

The film tells the story of salesman-turned-pastor Michael Spurlock (Corbett) whose tiny church of a dozen members was ordered to shut down.

"While developers eagerly eye the property and the congregation mourns the inevitable, Michael and his family look forward to moving on to an established church where they can put down roots. But when the church hesitantly begins welcoming Karen (kuh-REN) refugees from Burma — former farmers striving for a fresh start in America — Michael feels called to an improbable new mission," according to the film's synopsis.

The Karen people and the members of All Saints Church work to turn the church land into a working farm to pay the bills and feed the refugees.

"Jeopardizing his family's future by ignoring his superiors, Michael must choose between completing what he was assigned to do — close the church and sell the property — or listening to a still, small voice challenging the people of All Saints to risk it all and provide much-needed hope to their new community."
