Despite not having the backing of the Hollywood establishment, the independent filmÂ Sound Of FreedomÂ continues to be a massive success, as it has made over $164 million at the domestic box office at the time of this writing.
Angel Studios, the production company behindÂ Sound OfÂ Freedom, is now crediting “everyday people” with making the anti-child trafficking film a success as mainstream Hollywood continues to scratch their heads over how this happened.

Sound Of FreedomÂ Continues To Be A Hit
Jared Geesey, Angel Studios senior VP of global distribution, is confident thatÂ Sound Of FreedomÂ will eventually surpass the $200 million mark in North America.
âThe vast majority of tickets are being bought by human, everyday people in a normal purchase flow,â Geesey told The Hollywood Reporter.
Angel Studios has stated that over 14.5 million tickets toÂ Sound Of FreedomÂ have been purchased in North America. However, some naysayers have questioned how many of these tickets are donated tickets through Angel Studios “Pay It Forward” model, which allows people to buy and then donate Sound of Freedom tickets for others to use.
Though Geesey declined to reveal how many tickets were donated tickets, he indicated that the number was not very huge.
âWe do not break out ‘Pay It Forward’ tickets versus regular tickets because theyâre the same thing,” he explained. “A ticket is a ticket whether you paid for it or someone else paid for it.â
âPeople are very grateful for all the momentum that ‘Pay It Forward’ has created,â he added.

‘A Summer Movie Success Story’
Regardless of how the tickets were bought, industry experts are taking notice off the success ofÂ Sound Of Freedom.
âAngel Studios deserves a tremendous amount of credit for designing and executing one of the most unexpected indie box office runs in years,â said Shawn Robbins, chief analyst at BoxOffice.com. “Sound of Freedomâs sustained success goes to show that grassroots campaigning still has a sizeable impact in this day and age and that the movieâs core audience remains overlooked and underserved,â
â³Sound of Freedom is a summer movie success story that wasnât even on the radar just a few short weeks ago,â added Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Comscore. “[It] has become one of the most talked about movies of the summer a film [and its] box office revenue has surpassed that of titles with much bigger stars, brands, and budgets.â
Sound of FreedomÂ is based on the true story of the real life government agent Tim Ballard (Jim Caviezel), who quit his job to travel to Colombia to save a little girl who had been sex trafficked. The film exposes the very real issue of child trafficking, something that many argue is frequently swept under the rug in this country.
