Marilyn Monroe famously invoked a Hollywood "where they'll pay you $1,000 for a kiss and 50 cents for your soul" – but these days it's as likely to be the other way around.For most of the U.S. film industry's short history it has turned out a few religious films a year, but the end of the 1990s saw a sudden boom, and by 2006 theaters were showing four or five new releases a month.The current No. 8 film, "Paul, Apostle of Christ," stars James Faulkner in the titular role alongside Jim Caviezel, who played Jesus in Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ" (2004).The actor is in talks to revive his role in a sequel of "Passion," the most lucrative faith-based movie of all time, with a global box office exceeding $600 million against a $30 million budget.Its debut was a modest $5.2 million but that still gets it comfortably into the upper echelons of 2018 releases, beating all but 23 of the 150-plus movies to come to North American theaters so far this year.
