(LifeSiteNews)Sound of Freedom, the groundbreaking movie about rescuing children from the global sex-trafficking industry, debuted as the #1 movie in America on its opening day, July 4.

The movie stars Jim Caviezel as former Homeland Security agent Tim Ballard, who quit his job a decade ago in order to rescue innocent children trapped in the horrific underworld where up to two million children around the world are bought and sold for sex to depraved adults.

“Thanks to fans around the country, Sound of Freedom earned the top spot as America’s number one movie on Independence Day,” said Neal Harmon, CEO of Angel Studios.  “We’ve received numerous messages telling us theaters are either packed or sold out. This movie has now taken on a life of its own to become something more than that, a grassroots movement.”

“With an A+ CinemaScore rating, we’re the top-rated movie in America, and we’re going to see word-of-mouth spread even further going into the weekend,” Harmon continued.

“The world needs to see Sound of Freedom,” he added, “and we know that our biggest competitive advantage — our incredible fans and investors — are going to make sure that happens.”

Jim Caviezel has suggested that Sound of Freedom will likely be the “Uncle Tom’s Cabin of 21st century slavery.”

Eduardo Verástegui, Sound of Freedom’s producer and one of its stars, recently told LifeSiteNews that the movie is a “weapon of mass instruction and inspiration” that will put more pressure on governments to act against the depraved exploitation of vulnerable children while enlisting ordinary citizens around the world to do what they can to end child-sex slavery.

Mel Gibson, the creative genius behind The Passion of the Christ, and Elon Musk have both urged people to go see Sound of Freedom.
