“Sound of Freedom,” an anti-human-trafficking film made by Catholic filmmakers Eduardo Verástegui and Alejandro Monteverde and starring Catholic actor Jim Caviezel, continues to top the box office charts.
The film currently sits behind the new “Mission Impossible” at the No. 2 spot on the box office charts, beating out other expected summer hits, according to Box Office Mojo.
“Sound of Freedom” was released in theaters across the country on July 4 and had an incredibly successful opening day in which it reached No. 1 at the box office, beating out Disney’s fifth “Indiana Jones” installment and raking in $14.24 million.
The film was originally produced under 20th Century Fox and finished in 2018, but it was dropped after Disney bought the studio. Only after being acquired by Angel Studios, known for its TV show “The Chosen,” did “Sound of Freedom” finally make it into theaters.
