It’s a prediction that could prove true. 2004’s The Passion of the Christ, which Gibson directed, co-wrote and produced, was a major milestone in faith-based filmmaking, earning more than $611 million worldwide on a $30 million budget.
It’s the highest-grossing R-rated film ever in North America with $370.8 million.
