“The pre-sales for the ‘War Room’ collector’s edition DVD and Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack outpaced demand for any other DVD title in the industry based on retail reports,” Howard said in a statement shared with The Christian Post. “In fact, we anticipate ‘War Room’ will break another retail record for the Kendricks beating blockbuster first-week sales of previous best-selling DVDs ‘Courageous’ and ‘Fireproof.'”
