‘Sound of Freedom’ Nabs No. 1 Slot in 18 Latin American Countries

Summer's indie sensation scores big in Mexico, Peru, Ecuador and more

“Sound of Freedom” isn’t done quite yet.

The summer’s indie sensation finally fell out of the top 10 box office results after earning north of $180 million at the U.S. box office.

Those numbers are staggering and would be the summer’s biggest story if not for a certain one-two punch dubbed “Barbenheimer.”

“Freedom,” which follows a Homeland Security agent (Jim Caviezel) tracking down a little girl abducted by sex traffickers, is now a global sensation.

The film scored 18 number-one slots across Latin America over the weekend, according to Angel Studios.

  • Mexico
  • Guatemala
  • Honduras
  • El Salvador
  • Nicaragua
  • Costa Rica
  • Panama
  • Colombia
  • Venezuela
  • Ecuador
  • Peru
  • Bolivia
  • Belize
  • Paraguay
  • Chile
  • Uruguay
  • Argentina
  • Dominican Republic

The film also performed respectively in other nations during its opening weekend:

  • #1 in New Zealand
  • #2 in Australia
  • #2 in South Africa
  • #4 in the United Kingdom

Disney infamously acquired the film during its 2019 takeover of 20th Century Fox but didn’t know what to do with the property. So the Mouse House shelved it for five years before Angel Studios bought the rights to the film and released it independently.

The mainstream media savaged the film in cruel and unprofessional ways. Reporters attacked Caviezel for his political views and suggested the film addressed an issue that’s based on conspiracy theory more than fact.

The most absurd line of attack?

Some outlets used one of the 6,000+ people who crowdfunded the movie’s marketing efforts against the project. The person in question is tied up in a child custody dispute framed as “child abduction.”

The film’s global revenue is still dramatically lower than its domestic haul. So far, “Freedom” has earned more than $2 million outside the U.S.

  1. every person should see this FACTUAL movie! The number of trafficked children is tragic, worse is that entire governments like the US cooperate with the traffickers and make it easy. look at your television or a movie, you’ll see many of the folks involved wherever you are!

  2. Darkly hilarious that only the UK, home of Knighted pedophile/necrophile Jimmy Savile and “royal” nonce Prince Andrew is the only place where “Sound of Freedom” has gotten a meh reaction from filmgoers.

    1. It could be like here in Australia. The corrupt powers that be, rather than make a big deal smearing and lying about the movie, just ignored it and despite being no. 2 in the box office (by the way only on one website, because unless I am making ssing something, Box Office Mojo, which I am quite familiar with, disappeared in in their aunbox office results,). not a single person I have mentioned it to had ever heard of it.

      Anyway in a sold out showing I got the last tickes in the front row for my family. Showing the impact the movie had, nuite stunningly not a single person left when the movie finished, as every single one waited through the the 3 minutes plus of credits, for the “upcoming special message after credits” which was written on the screen in the bottom right hand corner.
