'Courageous' to open in 100+ new cities
ALBANY, Ga. (BP) -- One month after it opened nationwide, the church-made film "Courageous" remains in 1,000 theaters and will open in more than 100 new cities this weekend.

Made by the same church that filmed the 2008 hit "Fireproof," Courageous has made $25 million and is the top-ranked fan film on Fandango.com, a popular film ticketing website. It also has the third-most viewed trailer on that website.

It was the No. 1 new film on opening weekend and is one of only four movies this year to receive an A+ CinemaScore exit poll rating from viewers.

The movie follows the story of five men -- four of them police officers -- as they seek to become better fathers.
