The decade's most triggering comedy
Jim Caviezel thanked supporters for “not letting the media silence” his new film “Sound of Freedom” which deals with the horrors of human trafficking, saying “saving children should never be a controversy.”
The 54-year-old actor tweeted a video message over the weekend praising all who have come out to support the AngelStudios movie — the same company responsible for the popular faith-based television series, “The Chosen.”
“I’ve always said do you want to be liked by many, the world, Hollywood, or do you want to be loved by one, which is God,” Caviezel said in the clip. “Because love don’t come from man it comes from above.”
We hit 2 million tickets for @SOFMovie2023! This is a representation of the children’s lives who will be saved. Thank you to @AngelStudiosInc for championing this film and to the audience. Please continue to share this message because God’s children are not for sale! pic.twitter.com/UBUi5pFXgU

“So, I’m sitting here thinking about all you amazing Americans that are fighting the battle and helping us in this war against the greatest evil that has ever been,” he added. “Because you know that God’s children are not for sale.”
“I want to thank you all for helping us reach two million tickets and thanks for not letting the media silence us,” the “Passion of the Christ” star continued. “Your voices were heard. I love you.”
Jared Geesey, Angel Studios’ senior vice president of global distribution, had previously shared a company goal to get “two million people into theaters opening week to remember the two million children who are trafficked each year.”
The Caviezel-lead film ended up topping the box office on its opening day, July 4, and took the number one spot, beating out Disney’s highly-anticipated “Indiana Jones and The Dial of Destiny,” among others, Box Office Mojo reported.
In the movie, Caviezel portrays Tim Ballard in the true story of a federal agent who quits his job and embarks on a dangerous mission to rescue a young girl from sex slavery in South America.
