Having racked up more than $180 million at the domestic box office since its release on the 4th of July, Sound of Freedom is now coming to audiences around the world. The independent production opened in eight countries in the Balkans last night and will follow suit in all 15 former republics of the Soviet Union on September 14th.

The picture, which stars Jim Caviezel and Oscar-winner Mira Sorvino, tells the true story of a U.S. government official who quit his post at the Department of Homeland Security to devote himself full-time to the fight against child sex trafficking. Its revenue haul has been massive at American movie theaters, making it only the second film in the Christian genre to top $100 million (The Passion of the Christ, which also starred Caviezel, was the first).


Originally a 20th Century Fox production, it was shelved for years after The Walt Disney Company purchased that studio. The filmmakers eventually bought back the rights and partnered with Angel Studios - the outfit that helped launch The Chosen - for distribution. In a press release, Jared Geesey, a senior vice president for Angel Studios, says that they are "seeing surging demand for this film around the globe."


Sound of Freedom will release on September 15th in several African countries - including Kenya, Rwanda, and Uganda - and debut on September 21st in Brazil, which is far and away the most populous and lucrative market in South America. The movie is thus far scheduled to release in 40 plus nations, though the aforementioned press release states that there will be more to come.
