Sound of Freedom defied box office expectations in 2023 – here’s exactly how much it’s made as the year draws to a close.

Take a look at the highest grossing movies of all time and you’ll quickly see that the list comprises big budget, franchise flicks from the likes of Marvel and DC, Disney, Star Wars, Harry Potter, and pretty much anything with James Cameron at the helm

So, when an independent movie with a small budget starts climbing the ranks, people notice – and that’s exactly what’s happening with Sound of Freedom, which tells the true story of Tim Ballard and his quest to rescue children from sex trafficking. 

With the film now available to watch in cinemas, here’s how it’s doing at the box office.

Sound of Freedom has grossed $248 million worldwide.

This is an impressive sum, especially since most of it has come from its release in North American cinemas, with a domestic haul of $184 million (its production budget is also estimated to be $14.5 million). The film opened in 2,500 theaters to over $19 million across the country.

What is Sound of Freedom about?

The official synopsis reads: “Sound of Freedom, based on the incredible true story, shines a light on even the darkest of places. After rescuing a young boy from ruthless child traffickers, a federal agent learns the boy’s sister is still captive and decides to embark on a dangerous mission to save her. 

“With time running out, he quits his job and journeys deep into the Colombian jungle, putting his life on the line to free her from a fate worse than death.

“The film stars Jim Caviezel (The Passion of the Christ, The Count of Monte Cristo) who plays the lead role of Tim Ballard. Academy Award Winner Mira Sorvino (Mighty Aphrodite) plays Katherine Ballard and Bill Camp (Lincoln, 12 Years a Slave) plays ‘Batman’ – Ballard’s right-hand man.”
