The phrase “Box Office” still gives Kirk Cameron the chills.

Shia LaBeouf’s thrilling thriller Eagle Eye topped the box office with $29.4 million dollars, no doubt because of all those

It had the year’s highest grossing opening weekend return of any film (except 3-D Hannah Montana) released on 1,000 screens or less. Faith-based “Action Squads” bought up blocks of tickets. [DHD]

Oh boy, I can’t wait to watch the big studios try to cash in on this one.  It’ll be just like that one movie with Steve Martin and Queen Latifah, but instead of an old white guy learning how to dance and rap, a bunch of old Jews will learn to how to say “I love Jesus” in tongues.
