Actress and producer Roma Downey is heartbroken after the remake of 'Ben Hur' disappointed in the box office and garnered mostly negative reviews about the film.
The 56 year old, who was one of the producers of the film alongside Mark Burnett, revealed that she felt drained and was seeking God for support amid the disappointment.
She uploaded a picture on Facebook and wrote "Fill me up Lord, I am on empty!" followed by hashtags "give me strength, praying, more of you less of me, and I love you Lord."
The 'Ben Hur' remake was made on a budget of $131 million, and opened to a $15 million earning in the US, which was deemed by many as the major flop this summer. It fell behind movies like Suicide Squad and Sausage Party over the weekend.
Downey and her husband Mark Burnett hoped that the movie would inspire people with the message of forgiveness. Ben Hur premiered on 23 international markets and made around $10.7 million. It was positioned in number 5 but Pete's Dragon pushed it down.
"That's it folks, now it's in Gods hands. We did all we could do to launch 'Ben-Hur.' We fought the good fight, we finished the race, we kept the faith," said one of her many posts during the time the film released.
The actress and her husband tried their best to make the movie a grand success like that of the 1959 record breaking epic movie, but according to Box Office Mojo, was placed on number 6 in the chart on its opening weekend. It earned the number 1 position in Mexico and number 2 in Brazil respectively.
The film is awaiting its release in Australia, Argentina, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Spain, France, Russia, the UK, Korea, Italy and Japan.
