SOUND OF FREEDOM is breaking theatrical records as it continues to dominate the US box office. The film is the only film in history to achieve a second-week jump greater than 35% during the summer blockbuster season, and is now the top grossing independent film since the pandemic. Demand has allowed the film’s US screen count to impressively maintain 3,285 theater locations in its 4th week, and now totaling over $127M in domestic box office since its July 4 release.

Starring Jim Caviezel (THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST, FREQUENCY, DEJA VU), Academy Award Winner Mira Sorvino (THE FINAL CUT, “Psych,” AFTER EVER HAPPY), Bill Camp (12 YEARS A SLAVE, “The Queen’s Gambit,” JOKER), José Zúñiga (TWILIGHT, “Madam Secretary,” “American Crime Story”), Eduardo Verástegui (UNPLANNED, SON OF GOD, PAUL BLART: MALL COP 2), who is also a producer, and written and directed by Alejandro Monteverde (Toronto winner “Bella” and "Little Boy”).

SOUND OF FREEDOM, based on the incredible true story, shines a light on even the darkest of places. After rescuing a young boy from ruthless child traffickers, a federal agent learns the boy’s sister is still captive and decides to embark on a dangerous mission to save her. With time running out, he quits his job and journeys deep into the Colombian jungle, putting his life on the line to free her from a fate worse than death.
