The film made headlines last week after it already reached $10 Million in pre-sale tickets.
Its “eye-opening true story” explores the depths of human trafficking and child sex trafficking around the world, and stars actor Jim Caviezel.
This is what Brandon Purdie, Head of Theatrical Distribution at Angel Studios had to say about the film’s box office success in a Sunday press release:
As with our July 4th numbers, today’s numbers exceed our expectations, and we’re going to continue this momentum. SOUND of FREEDOM has taken on a life of its own. We’re getting messages from all over the country telling us about packed theaters, sold-out theaters, and spontaneous standing ovations for the film in numerous locations. Seeing this film has become a must thanks to incredible word-of-mouth.
We’re deeply grateful to AMC, Cinemark, Regal, and all our theater partners—and their hard-working theater staff members—for working with us to accommodate the surging demand for this film and having the courage to release SOUND OF FREEDOM during the busiest movie season of the year.
Notably, what catapulted the movie into theaters was Angel Studios’ crowd-funding and crowd-investing model. Obviously people wanted this film starring Caviezel to be made.
The film currently holds a 77% critic score, and a 100% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes at the time of this writing.
The mainstream media, however, has been reluctantly snubbing the film’s success. Dubbing it “an unlikely box office hit,” and even going as far as to link it to QAnon conspiracies somehow.

Others, mainly people who have actually seen the film, are praising it and calling on others to go watch it due to its “important” – albeit heavy – message against trafficking.
Dana White, for example, posted a video telling everyone to go see Sound of Freedom. While also announcing that he’s buying tickets for UFC employees.

“You must see this movie,” White says in the video above.

If most Americans are applauding the movie, while the mainstream media works to prevent viewership with baseless claims, then you know this film is one to watch.
