EPK.TV Press Release
Angel Studios – a platform and studio empowering filmmakers to crowdfund, create and distribute films and TV series globally, backed by thousands of Angel investors – is announcing its July cumulative-to-date and opening weekend results for “Sound of Freedom.” The Jim Caviezel-driven film achieved the No. 1 spot on its opening day with the film kicking off its wide U.S. release, and the No. 3 spot over its first weekend.
“As with our July 4th numbers, today’s numbers exceed our expectations, and we’re going to continue this momentum,” said Brandon Purdie, head of theatrical distribution at Angel Studios. “ ‘Sound of Freedom’ has taken on a life of its own. We’re getting messages from all over the country telling us about packed theaters, sold-out theaters, and spontaneous standing ovations for the film in numerous locations. Seeing this film has become a must thanks to incredible word-of-mouth. We’re deeply grateful to AMC, Cinemark, Regal, and all our theater partners – and their hard-working theater staff members – for working with us to accommodate the surging demand for this film and having the courage to release ‘Sound of Freedom’ during the busiest movie season of the year.”
“Sound of Freedom” is based upon the true story of former government agent Tim Ballard who quit his job to rescue a little girl from sex traffickers in the Colombian jungle. In the process, Tim ended up saving 123 people, 55 of which were children, from one mission alone.
