A movie charting the origin story of Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson has been a huge money-maker for the company responsible for getting it into theaters.

'The Blind' Is Company's Top-Grossing Movie

The Blind arrived in theaters earlier this month. TV Insider describes the film as an "honest depiction as it touches on the Duck Commander creator's past struggles"

The movie looks at Robertson's life and his marriage to his wife, Kay, prior to starting the duck call brand featured on the popular Duck Dynasty reality show.

The story is dotted with tales of alcoholism, infidelity and Robertson's perseverance.

Fathom Events, the company responsible for distributing The Blind to theaters, is finding success with the faith-based movie.

Deadline reports The Blind is the highest-grossing release ever for Fathom Events — the website says the movie had grossed $15.7 million in North America coming into this week.

"From the beginning, we knew how special this film was, and we were eager to support it in the best way possible," Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt tells Deadline.

The Blind marks the first time Fathom attempted an extended run for a movie (the company typically sticks to special, limited releases).

'People Don't Go to The Theater to Watch Hard Stories'

Robertson shared on Instagram that there was some doubt how the movie would actually do in theaters, given its subject matter.

"They told me people don't go to the theater to watch hard stories like The Blind these days," he said in a post celebrating Fathom's milestone.

"Well, my story is about as messy as they come, but I said if just one person gets to know Jesus in that theater it's worth it."

The Blind is still playing in select theaters across the country. A theater finder for the movie is available on Fathom's website.

See Inside Jimmy Buffett's Staggering $6.9 Million Palm Beach Mansion

Jimmy Buffett sure knew how to live the good life. His former 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom, 4,039-square-foot mansion in the exclusive Eden Properties neighborhood in Palm Beach is exactly the kind of laid-back home you'd expect the superstar to relax in when he was off the road.

The interior centers around a combined dining and living room with eye-popping vaulted ceilings topped off by skylights, while a massive wall of mahogany-framed sliding glass doors looks out over the pool area outside. The kitchen is decorated in gleaming white, and each of the bedrooms has its own attached bathroom, while the massive master suite also has sliding glass doors that open to both the pool and a bathroom that looks like it belongs in a high-end resort.

The exterior of the house is just as striking, centered around a sparkling pool of deep cobalt blue. The pool area features plenty of lounging, and a loggia just outside the living room offers open-air dining. There are lush gardens, brick paths that walk through elaborate pergolas and a fountain. The property also features a two-car garage with a guest suite overhead, and it offers deeded access to the beach nearby.
