Hitting theaters on the Fourth of July, the anti-child trafficking, faith-based film Sound of Freedom outperformed both Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny and The Flash.

Starring The Passion of Christ actor Jim Cavaziel, Sound of Freedom tells the true story of a former government agent who embarked on a mission to rescue children from sex traffickers in Colombia.

On Tuesday, the film earned $14.2 million, while the new Indiana Jones movie brought in about $11.7 million, and The Flash earned just $1 million.

The film was distributed by Angel Studios, which used the crowdfunding platform ‘Pay it Forward,’ which allows supporters to purchase tickets for would-be moviegoers that cannot afford to pay for a ticket themselves.

According to Angel Studios, $2.6 million of opening-day sales came from this platform.

Jordan Harmon, who co-founded Angel Studios with his brothers, spoke to the Daily Mail about the film’s successful release.

“We’re so excited about the box office success, but what that number actually represents is awareness,” said Harmon.

In a press release, Neal Harmon, the CEO of Angel Studios, acknowledged the film’s success, saying, “Thanks to fans around the country, SOUND OF FREEDOM earned the top spot as America’s number one movie on Independence Day.”

“We’ve received numerous messages telling us theaters are either packed or sold out. This movie has now taken on a life of its own to become something more than that, a grassroots movement. With an A+ CinemaScore rating, we’re the top-rated movie in America, and we’re going to see word-of-mouth spread even further going into the weekend. The world needs to see SOUND OF FREEDOM, and we know that our biggest competitive advantage – our incredible fans and investors – are going to make sure that happens.”

Left-wing media outlets, however, are rushing to attack the film in order to downplay the realities of the global child sex trafficking industry.

Far-left hack Charles Bramesco wrote an article about the film for The Guardian titled ‘Sound of Freedom: the QAnon-adjacent thriller seducing America’ and called it a “paranoid new movie.”

Political commentator Collin Rugg called out these outlets for trashing the film, asking, “Since when is opposing child sex trafficking a bad thing?”
