Jim Caviezel Sends Important Message to Fans of ‘Sound of Freedom’ – Watch
In a message to his fans, actor Jim Caviezel thanked them for their support of his film “Sound of Freedom,” which has now surpassed the $150 million mark at the box office.
“Thank you for supporting Sound of Freedom!” Caviezel wrote. “Thanks also for all the prayers for me – I’m feeling much better and am energized by all the awareness that we’ve brought to the issue of child trafficking. God’s children are not for sale!”
“I am so grateful to all of you who have supported ‘Sound of Freedom,’” Caviezel said. “This film is about a very important issue, and I am glad that it has been able to reach so many people. I believe that this film is a wake-up call for our nation, and I hope that it will inspire us to take action to end human trafficking.”
“Sound of Freedom” is a faith-based thriller based on the true story of Tim Ballard, a former U.S. Department for Homeland Security agent who conducts sting operations to rescue children from human trafficking. The film has been praised by conservative critics for its message of hope and its depiction of the evils of human trafficking.
In his message to fans, Caviezel also spoke about the challenges that he and the filmmakers faced in making the film. “We faced a lot of opposition in making this film,” he said. “But we never gave up, because we knew that this story was too important to be told.”
“I believe that ‘Sound of Freedom’ is a film that will change the world,” Caviezel said. “I am so grateful to all of you who have helped to make this happen.”
“Throughout our fourth weekend, audiences have continued to show up and support SOUND OF FREEDOM, and our theatrical partners have given us ample real estate to meet that continued demand,” Brandon Purdie, head of Theatrical Distribution at Angel Studios, shared in a weekend press release estimating that the movie would pass $150 million.
“We now know that this incredible film is going to surpass the $150 million mark domestically, and we’re strongly positioned to go well past that,” he added.
The success of “Sound of Freedom” is a sign that there is a growing audience for conservative films. The film has been a hit with Christian audiences, but it has also attracted a significant number of secular viewers. This suggests that there is a hunger for films that deal with important issues in a way that is both entertaining and thought-provoking.
Thank you for supporting Sound of Freedom! Thanks also for all the prayers for me – I'm feeling much better and am energized by all the awareness that we've brought to the issue of child trafficking. God's children are not for sale!
