A high quality film with a redemptive message can reach a lot of people. For example, in Japan "Narnia's" market total after three weeks was a mighty $18.7 million. "Narnia's" global total, more than $690 million ($401.2 million international), now surpasses that of 1994's "Forrest Gump" in the all-time box office sweepstakes.
