Sound of Freedom is finally coming to Australia in August and will reportedly be exclusively showing at HOYTS cinemas.
The highly anticipated film, Sound of Freedom, is finally making its way to Australian shores, set to be exclusively shown at HOYTS cinemas in August. The film, which has already made waves in the United States, is a testament to the power of cinema to enlighten audiences about critical and challenging realities of our world.
Sound of Freedom has remarkably outsold mainstream blockbusters like Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny by a ratio of 3:1, a noteworthy feat considering its limited domestic release and fewer theatre appearances. The film features Hollywood veteran Jim Caviezel, alongside Mira Sorvino and Bill Camp, and is grounded in the raw and gripping realities of the world. It’s based on the true-life missions of Tim Ballard, a former Homeland Security officer who decided to leave his position to tackle the pervasive issue of child trafficking.
Since its premiere on July 4th, Sound of Freedom has proven to be a box office sensation, grossing an impressive USD$133,994,647. This remarkable achievement is a testament to the film’s powerful narrative and its ability to resonate with audiences worldwide. Despite its limited release, the film’s success underscores the global appetite for stories that tackle pressing societal issues and inspire change. The film’s commercial success is not just a win for the makers but also a victory for cinema that dares to shed light on the darker corners of our world.
The film’s success is a triumphant tale of the human spirit’s resilience and serves as a stark reminder that cinema can not only entertain but also has the capacity to enlighten audiences about critical and challenging realities of our world. Despite its challenging subject matter, this hard hitting movie has found resonance with a wide audience, reflected in its significant commercial success.
However, the film has not been without controversy. Some mainstream media outlets have been accused of attacking the film unfairly. Noah Berlatsky, a writer for Bloomberg, has been identified as a pro-p*dophilia activist who lambasted the film. His critique of Sound of Freedom was branded as an assault, insinuating that it served to stoke conspiracy theories rather than illuminate the grim reality of child trafficking. This has raised questions about his motives and credibility.
Winston Marshall, co-founder of Mumford and Sons, defended Sound of Freedom from media attacks in an interview with Fox News Digital. He connected the media coverage of Aldean’s video to the hit movie Sound of Freedom, criticizing a Vox review of the film that nearly equated child s*x trafficking with right-wing “extremist propaganda.”

With over 50 locations and 400 screens, HOYTS is one of the world’s leading entertainment corporations. The company is committed to creating cinema experiences that offer more than just great movies.

Despite the attacks from critics, the film’s success suggests that audiences are seeking more than just escapism. They are embracing films that dare to expose difficult truths, inspire action, and effect change. As we continue to navigate these complexities, the power of cinema to expose, educate, and inspire remains a beacon of hope in an often murky world.
