But An Inconvenient Sequel holds onto top spot over Labor Day Weekend
Step has become a certified breakout hit at the documentary box office, crossing the $1 mil. mark in total earnings over the Labor Day Weekend.
The film directed by Amanda Lipitz has earned $1,016,599 since its release five weeks ago, according to audience tracker comScore. It tells the story of a girls step dance team at the Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women, an academic institution dedicated to helping students advance to college.
STEP is more than just a hobby for these girls, it is the outlet that keeps them united and fighting for their goals.
Step came in second once again to An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, which has held the top spot at the doc box office for every one of its six weeks in theaters. Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk directed the film, which focuses on Al Gore's continued campaign to warn of the dangers of climate change. An Inconvenient Sequel has earned $3,394,951 total, per comScore.
