As our nation celebrated the Fourth of July, a new style of movie was making waves that strike fear into the hearts of Hollywood elites. This movie is hitting wealthy liberals right where it hurts the most – their bank accounts.
Patriotic Americans are ready and willing to open their wallets to entertainment that aligns with their values. They want movies that celebrate independence and freedom. Hollywood is experiencing a backlash from people who are tired of the anti-American themes in movies.
Patriots don’t mind tough subjects and even jumped ahead of a new movie opening to send sales skyrocketing.
From Blaze News:
A Utah-headquartered company best known for its religious content has demonstrated with its latest film that Hollywood’s days might be numbered… According to Deadline, Angel Studios’ “Sound of Freedom” starring Jim Caviezel made over $10 million in presales ahead of its Independence Day debut.
The movie jumped out early by selling more than 1.1 million tickets as interest continued to grow. “Sound of Freedom” is expected to clear $20 million in its first week, according to reports, while playing in about 2,600 theaters nationwide.
This level of success still doesn’t compare to the financial performance of Hollywood “blockbusters,” but it clearly shows an emerging trend. Americans crave movies that celebrate freedom and not the latest cultural fad that Hollywood wants to promote. Big-ticket movies have faltered or failed so far this summer and liberal elites should take notice.
What is great about “Sound of Freedom” is that it isn’t a subpar film in terms of quality and caliber of content. This movie sets a high bar for independent films that critics can’t ignore, and other filmmakers will surely follow.
The topic of the film – human trafficking – is one that liberals shy away from in movies and the mainstream media. It makes you wonder why Hollywood elites want to avoid this type of raw material.
From Blaze News:
“Through this powerful cinematic experience, we aim to amplify the growing movement to expose this heinous violation of human rights and inspire people to take action, helping their communities put an end to this modern-day slavery once and for all,” said Neal Harmon, co-founder and CEO of Angel Studios.
According to Blaze, “Sound of Freedom” tells the true story of former Homeland Security agent Tim Ballard, who stepped in to save abducted children around the world from sex traffickers when others proved incapable.
Sharing stories about real life – real patriotism – can be a profitable business for creative filmmakers who want to make a difference in the world. Patriots across America should take note of the message leading actor Caviezel delivers through his performance in “Sound of Freedom.
From Blaze News:
“300,000 children under the age of 18 were lured into the sex trafficking business in the United States,” Caviezel said. “We are the biggest consumers of child trafficking and pornography in the world. The United States — the home of the free, land of the brave. This is ridiculous. And so the film is a threat.”
Caviezel uses his star power in “Sound of Freedom” to deliver an underlying message – Hollywood is afraid of independent, freedom-loving Americans. Looks like a movie worth a trip to the theater.
- Independent film sets studio record for pre-sales, box office profits.
- Movie about fighting a sick criminal element in U.S. shocks Hollywood.
- Lead actor isn’t afraid to call out criminals and stand for freedom.
