‘Sound Of Freedom’ Hits Top Ten In 2023

It was dismissed and mocked; however, the film “The Sound of Freedom” just got the last laugh.

The independent film from Angel Studios is one of the top ten grossing films of 2023 and domestically earned $184,177,725.

It performed so well that it beat out Taylor Swift’s concert film, pushing it out of the top 10 and into the eleventh place. The “Era” concert film earned $179,635,196

When the film launched it became the number one movie during Independence Day weekend beating out Disney’s Indiana Jones.

From the Dailywire:

The movie comes from the same studio responsible for the popular faith-based television series “The Chosen.”

The film became the sleeper hit of the summer after it opened in select theaters across the country on July 4 and ended up earning $19 million at the box office opening weekend.

The movie beat out films with much larger budgets like the next installment in the Indiana Jones franchise, “Indiana Jones and The Dial of Destiny,” which earned $174 million for Disney — and Tom Cruise’s “Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part One,” which finished the year earning $172 million domestically, the outlet noted.

Its success also makes it the highest grossing independent film since 2019’s “Parasite.”

The top 2023 movies to make the list was “Barbie” earning $636 million, “The Super Mario Bros Movie” earning $575 million, “Spider-Man: Across the Spiderverse” earning $381 million, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” earning $358 million, and in fifth place was “Oppenheimer” which earned $326 million.

As we previously reported, Disney shelved the movie when they acquired Century Fox in 2019 (Fox was preparing to release the movie).

The surprisingly high success of Sound of Freedom is just proof that real-life stories can resonate with audiences, especially when they’re grounded in truth.

Sound of Freedom, which is co-written and directed by Alejandro Monteverde, is based on the real-life story of Tim Ballard, the founder of the anti-sex trafficking charity Operation Underground Railroad.
