The Sound of Freedom was released on the 4th of July against some highly anticipated summer films.

It depicts a man who risks his life to save children from human trafficking.

But something about Sound of Freedom is making leftists in the media lose their minds.

Sound of Freedom hits the box office with record sales in limited theaters

The Sound of Freedom hit theaters last week to receive unanimous support from movie-goers across America. The film swept in at over $14 million dollars on its Independence Day release date and hit a staggering $40 million in ticket sales by the end of the week. 

The movie had a limited release in only 2,850 theaters across North America compared to other summer blockbusters like Indiana Jones 5, which was shown in nearly 5,000 theaters. But the strategy worked and Brandon Purdie, head of theatrical distribution at Angel Studios, said that ticket sales did “exceed” expectations.

“We’re getting messages from all over the country telling us about packed theaters, sold-out theaters, and spontaneous standing ovations for the film in numerous locations. Seeing this film has become a must, thanks to incredible word-of-mouth,” Purdie said. 

Despite the success, the media can’t get its mind off the subject matter of human trafficking.

Leftists in the media label the film depicting child-trafficking as “fit for QAnon”

The Sound of Freedom is based on the true story of a U.S. Homeland Security agent who left his job in hopes of freeing two young children from human traffickers. It seems that many in the press want to associate a very real problem—human trafficking—with fringe conspiracy theories.

According to multiple media outlets, stories like Sound of Freedom are “fit for QAnon.” The Guardian ran with the headline describing it as a “QAnon-adjacent thriller seducing America.” They went on to attack the movie’s box office success and trash the viewers of the film.

The Guardian said sales “figures require selective, almost willfully misleading framing to allow for the David-and-Goliath narrative,” before adding that those who watched the Sound of Freedom must be the same people tweeting that “Disney is in cahoots with a global cabal of high-power pedophiles.”

This was just one of many scathing articles about the film.

Jezebel says that the appeal to spread the story and end human trafficking is “shameless begging”

Jezebel went on a full rampage by calling the film “an Anti-Child Trafficking Fantasy Fit for QAnon.” They said that the film was just the ultimate “cinematic exploration” of the child trafficking world that the “QAnon camp” wanted to see.

They attacked Jim Caviezel, the man who plays Tim Ballard, for interviews where he discussed “QAnon theories” about the connections between organ harvesting and child trafficking. They said that his personal appeal to help end child trafficking was “shameless begging.”

The article even cited a hearing where Ballard testified before Congress in real life and confirmed that “the exploitation of children is a real problem that no one wants,” but then turned around and attacked concerns about child trafficking by associating it with fringe conspiracy theories.
