‘Sound of Freedom’ Hits A HUGE Benchmark

The movie “Sound of Freedom” is about to hit a huge benchmark defying critics of the movie.

The Jim Caviezel-led project is projected to hit the coveted $100 million mark after being in theaters for just two weeks.

“While the entire summer movie box office lineup is underperforming, our small independent film continues to grow week over week,” said Jared Geesey, at Angel Studios. “Driven by millions of fans and supporters, SOUND of FREEDOM has become a national—and soon international—movement for change.”

Brandon Purdie, Head of Theatrical Distribution for Angel Studios added that the movie is one of 10 in blockbuster hostiry that increased their audience over 35% in the second week and the first to do it during the summer months.

“There have only been 10 wide release movies in box office history that have had a 2nd weekend increase greater than 35% over their opening weekend,” Purdie, said. “All of them did it at Christmas. Angel Studios is the only Studio to do this in the summer blockbuster season with SOUND OF FREEDOM.”

The “Sound of Freedom” is also from the same studio producing the popular TV series “The Chosen.”

We previously reported that the movie beat Disney at their own game who shelved the production years ago when they acquired the rights.

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.

Ballard is credited with leading hundreds of brave missions rescuing children from human traffickers and cartels in Latin American countries. His team’s work has been featured in a popular Netflix series, but now it has a major Hollywood movie to showcase its incredible heroism and impact.

The action movie starring Jim Caviezel is based on the true story of former federal agent Tim Ballard who worked to save children from human trafficking. On its first day, the film grossed over $14 million.

The film beat Disney’s “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny,” which played in nearly 2,000 more theaters and took in $11 million and the second-place slot on July 4. 

It’s remarkable that a film with such a small budget was able to compete with Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, a movie with nearly a $300 million budget. But fans of Sound of Freedom are more than happy to be making their voices heard at the box office.
