In a triumphant turn of events, the blockbuster sensation “Sound of Freedom,” brought to you by Angel Studios, originally released during the Fourth of July weekend in 2023, continues to dominate screens around the world. This cinematic masterpiece, with its resounding message, has not only won over audiences but is now setting historic records at the box office, even surpassing some of Hollywood’s most iconic and lavish productions.

Starring the talented Jim Caviezel, the film delves into the daring efforts of Tim Ballard to dismantle international sex trafficking operations across Central and South America. Its instant acclaim in the United States laid the groundwork for a remarkable global reception.

According to Box Office Mojo by Internet Movie Database, “Sound of Freedom” has amassed a staggering quarter of a billion dollars in worldwide earnings. Of this impressive sum, an overwhelming $184,178,046 has been raked in domestically, with an additional $66,392,350 amassed internationally.

These astronomical box office figures place “Sound of Freedom” within striking distance of the silver screen’s greatest triumphs. For instance, the timeless classic “The Godfather” by Francis Ford Coppola, which graced theaters in 1972, secured $250,341,816 in earnings, falling just short of the $250,570,396 achieved by “Sound of Freedom.”

But that’s not all. This cinematic juggernaut has triumphed over other renowned titles, including Harrison Ford’s unforgettable “The Fugitive” and the enthralling crime caper “Ocean’s Eleven.” Furthermore, it has outshone contemporary contenders like Warner Bros.’ “The Flash” and Paramount’s “Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part One.”

Shwan Robbins, the astute chief analyst at, extolled Angel Studios for engineering an astonishing independent box office spectacle, stating, “Angel Studios deserves a tremendous amount of credit for designing and executing one of the most unexpected indie box office runs in years.”

Robbins further emphasized that “Sound of Freedom” resonated deeply with an audience that has long been overlooked by the film industry. He aptly noted, “‘Sound of Freedom’s’ sustained success goes to show that grassroots campaigning still has a sizeable impact in this day and age and that the movie’s core audience remains overlooked and underserved.”

Equally, Comscore’s distinguished senior media analyst, Paul Dergarabedian, marveled at the film’s meteoric rise, declaring, “‘Sound of Freedom’ is a summer movie success story that wasn’t even on the radar just a few short weeks ago. [It] has become one of the most talked-about movies of the summer, and its box office revenue has surpassed that of titles with much bigger stars, brands, and budgets.”

Perhaps the most remarkable feat is that “Sound of Freedom” achieved this monumental success on a modest budget of approximately $14 million. This accomplishment underscores the power of its narrative and message, transcending the need for extravagant advertising campaigns and special effects.

In a world where Hollywood often relies on excess and extravagance, “Sound of Freedom” has proven that substance and storytelling can still captivate audiences on a global scale. This cinematic triumph has sent a resounding message to the industry, reminding us all that a powerful story can outshine even the grandest of blockbusters.
