Though we'll see almost 10 superhero films released in 2016, there's another film genre that will see a massive push this year: faith-based films.
Religious-based films have seen success in the past. Last year's "War Room" grossed $67 million domestically.
The success of these ventures seems twofold. First, religious films are underrepresented; they're still a novelty compared to the other film genres.
Second, about 70 percent of Americans identify as Christian. And according to the Republican polling firm American Insights, 41 million Americans say faith influences their purchasing decisions — like movie choices.
It also helps when the films are perceived as authentic. American Insights found that 79 percent of Christians agree that "historical and biblical accuracy is important" at the movies.
