Weekend ticket sales for Sound of Hope: The Story of Possum Trot topped $3 million, according to The Numbers website. That puts the faith-based picture in seventh place overall from Friday through Sunday and it pushes total revenue above $6.6 million when you add in its opening day on Thursday, July 4th.


The film, executive produced by outspoken Christian actress Letitia Wright, is based on the widespread adoption of foster children by congregants at a small black church in rural East Texas. Led by their pastor, Reverend W.C. Martin and his wife Donna, 22 families adopted 77 children over several years around the turn of this century. Demetrius Grosse plays the aforementioned pastor while Nika King portrays his spouse.


The movie is being distributed by Angel Studios, the outfit that helped crowdfund The Chosen and was the distributor for the 2023 smash hit Sound of Freedom, which stars Jim Caviezel and focuses on the global fight against child trafficking.
