(Provo-AP) -- A new Mormon-themed film set a box-office record last weekend.
"The R.M." scored the best opening-weekend at the box office of any LDS movie. It took in more than $130,000 while showing on 15 screens in Utah last weekend.
The beats the previous record, set by the crime thriller "Brigham City," which took in about $103,000 in its opening weekend in April of 2001.
Produced by HaleStorm Entertainment, "The R.M." is a comedy that tells the tale of a returned LDS missionary who finds that things have changed around his hometown while he was gone. It's the studio's follow up to "Singles' Ward."
