Number Are In: Sound of Freedom BEATS Disney At The Box Office

Sound of Freedom staring Jim Caviezel is the number one movie in the nation.

The box office numbers are in and reveal Sound of Freedom netted in over $14,000,000 and even best Disney’s Indiana Jones which came in second at the box office at a little over $11,000,000.

Sound of Freedom is a movie based on the true life story of Tim Ballard a former DHS agent who quit his job to save children from being sex trafficked.

Take a look  at the box office chart:

Steve Bannon weighed in on Sound of Freedom’s success:

Here’s what The Christian Post reported:

“Sound of Freedom” hit theaters on Tuesday, and due to the “Pay It Forward” technology used by Angel Studios, the true-life thriller, which was reported as tied with Disney/Lucasfilm’s “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny,” actually beat out the studio giant for the No.1 spot at the box office on Independence Day.

As recorded by Box Office Mojo, “Sound of Freedom” grossed over $14 million in total: $11.5 million in direct box office sales and $2.6 million from the Pay It Forward tickets sold through the July 4 holiday. According to Deadline, “Indiana Jones” brought in $11.698M in total despite showing in double the amount of theaters.

“Sound of Freedom,” shown in only 2,600 theaters, tells the true story of one man’s journey to combat child sex trafficking. The Angel Studios film is based on the life of Tim Ballard, a former U.S. Department of Homeland Security agent who left his job because he wanted to do more to rescue children from modern-day slavery.

The film delivers a bold message calling for the freedom of millions of children enslaved in human trafficking, declaring that “God’s children are not for sale.”

Here’s what Deadline reported:

Angel Studios’ thriller Sound of Freedom starring Jim Caviezel has seen its presales spike to $10 million. This is before the pic’s opening on July 4 in north of 2,600 locations.

Many rivals are tracking this semi-faith-based, based-on-a-true-story title about about former Homeland Security agent Tim Ballard, who took rescuing abducted children around the globe into his own hands. They’re spotting a $20 million six-day start, impressive for a non-major-studio adult thriller. We’ll see how this plays out. Currently, more than 1 million tickets have been snapped up for Sound of Freedom.

We all know post-pandemic that tentpoles work at the box office, but it’s been hit and miss for everything else, especially indies movies. From out of nowhere, Angel Studios’ Sound of Freedom, about Tim Ballard, a former Homeland Security agent who left the department after he was frustrated with the U.S. rescue efforts with trafficked children in third-world countries, is racking up $7.2 million in ticket presales before its July 4th opening at 2,626 theaters, sources tell Deadline.

Angel is known for its faith-based fare, and I’m told this movie has some elements of that, though not entirely. Clearly a nerve has been struck with that demo as presales here are well in advance of Lionsgate’s spring Christian hit Jesus Revolution, which opened to $15.8M. Rivals are indeed impressed by the amount of presales here for Sound of Freedom, especially since it’s a non-major-studio movie. Another draw here for faith-based moviegoers is that Sound of Freedom stars Passion of the Christ thespian Jim Caviezel as Ballard. Oscar winner Mira Sorvino also headlines.
