“Sound of Freedom,” an enlightening thriller starring Jim Caviezel, prepares to make its grand entrance onto the silver screen. This captivating film offers a refreshing departure from the typical summer blockbuster landscape.
Even prior to its official release, it has already garnered an impressive $10 million in pre-sales, a true testament to the innovative approach embraced by Angel Studios, the ambitious film studio supporting the project. Unlike many Hollywood summer films, “Sound of Freedom” relied heavily on social media advertising and operated on a more modest budget.
With a robust distribution strategy firmly in place, “Sound of Freedom” is positioned to make a significant impact at the box office. Projections indicate that it will earn a notable $20 million during its initial six days of release, spanning across over 2,600 screens.
Amidst a season dominated by woke adrenaline-pumping spectacles like “The Flash,” starring polyamorous and non-binary Ezra Miller, “Sound of Freedom” stands as a thought-provoking and more intriguing alternative. The film caters to Angel Studios’ devoted fan base and aims to sell two million tickets in the opening week, symbolizing the two million children affected by trafficking each year.
Angel Studios has gone above and beyond to actively engage social media users and film enthusiasts by providing them with the unique opportunity to secure seats for future showings. This innovative approach not only ensures maximum occupancy but also enables numerous individuals to enjoy the film free of charge.
Although “Sound of Freedom” did not attain prominent placement in Rotten Tomatoes’ coveted “new and upcoming” section, which is frequented by avid cinema lovers, it garnered favorable reviews from both critics (85% fresh) and audiences (99% fresh).
It is worth mentioning that “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” experienced a lackluster global release, generating a mere $60 million at the U.S. box office. Considering its reported budget of $295 million, this underwhelming performance leaves Dr. Indiana Jones in a financial deficit, while “Sound of Freedom” demonstrates promising success that surpasses the declining trend of the previous installments in the series.
