Candace Cameron Bure has been in Hollywood since her days as a child star on Full House.

She noticed something that the studio bosses were missing. 

And Candace Cameron Bure spoke one truth about movie audiences that had Hollywood on edge.

Last year’s smash hit Sound of Freedom confirmed that there was a large audience for faith-based and faith-adjacent movies.

Hollywood has been dominated by sequels, reboots, and franchises but many moviegoers are looking for something different from their entertainment.

Former Full House star weighs in on faith-based movies

Christian actress Candace Cameron Bure told Yahoo Entertainment that Hollywood is realizing that there’s a massive market for faith-based films.

“There’s a lot of people in the country that we call ‘the flyover states,’ [so] not on the coast, and they feel like their voice isn’t heard,” Bure said. “And yet, these are the movies that they wanna see. “Listen, I live in [California], I’m on one of the coasts, and I want to see these movies.”

Faith-based movies have held their own at the box office without the massive marketing budgets and promotion that the typical Hollywood release receives.

“There’s a massive audience for them,” Bure continued. “And I think that networks and studios have recognized it over the years because these movies do very, very well. They do.”

She said that the momentum for faith-based movies is building. 

“And people come out and they support them. So I think it’s only gaining traction [and] getting better, whether it’s on television or in the theaters,” Bure said. 

Candace Cameron Bure hopes her new faith-based film is a hit with audiences

Bure’s new movie is Unsung Hero, which is based on the true story of a family who left everything behind in Australia to pursue a musical career in Nashville.

Unsung Hero follows the family of For King + Country artists Joel and Luke Smallbone as they build a new life in America with their faith and music.

Bure said she wants fans who see the film to be “inspired or encouraged to go home and love their families better, love their families more or friends more.”

Audiences will walk away from the movie inspired by the movie’s uplifting message.

“The film makes me want to be a better person, makes me wanna be a better mom, a better friend, a better daughter, all the things,” Bure said. “That’s what I love about this film. I just feel like there’s so many characters in there and wherever you’re at in life, there’s someone you’re gonna relate to and you’re gonna be encouraged by it.”

Faith-based movies have proved time and again that they have a message that connects with audiences.
