This incredible achievement in Latin America has surpassed even the expectations set by its success in the United States. Geesey mentioned that their initial goal was to reach 2 million in advance ticket sales, a goal that took a full week in the US. However, they were able to reach that goal in just four days in Latin America. This just goes to show the immense popularity and support the film has received in this region.
Sound of Freedom tells the courageous and true story of Tim Ballard, a former Homeland Security agent who left his job in order to save children from the horrors of sex slavery in Colombia. With notable actors such as Jim Caviezel, Mira Sorvino, and Bill Camp, this film has captivated audiences not only in Latin America but also in other parts of the world.
From a conservative perspective, the success of a film like Sound of Freedom is truly heartwarming. It sheds light on a serious issue and highlights the heroic actions of an individual who risks his own life to rescue innocent children. It is encouraging to see such a powerful and meaningful story resonating with audiences across the globe, proving that conservative values and stories can have a significant impact in the entertainment industry.
