Sound of Freedom” is dominating in 18 Latin American countries after it took over the number one spot at the box office on its opening weekend following the film’s release on August 31.

The Jim Caviezel-led film, which deals with the horrors of human trafficking, attracted nearly two million viewers from Mexico City to Caracas and more during opening weekend, a press release from Angel Studios read. It comes from the same studio responsible for the popular faith-based television series “The Chosen.”

“The domestic box office performance on ‘SOUND OF FREEDOM’ has been an incredible success story, but some industry experts have argued our film would not be able to translate this success overseas,” Jared Geesey, Chief Distribution Officer at Angel Studios, said.

“We’re grateful to our fans for proving them wrong, and making us the number one movie in Latin America,” he added. “We’re seeing packed theaters, standing ovations, widespread enthusiasm, and strong word-of-mouth from Buenos Aires to Mexico City to Bogota to Caracas, Lima, and beyond.”

“We set a goal of reaching 2 million in advance ticket sales—which took a full week in the US—and reached that goal in just four days in Latin America,” Geesy continued. “This film is fast-becoming a global movement for change.”

Written and directed by Alejandro Monteverde, the two million advanced tickets sold in Latin America represent the two million children trafficked each year, the press release noted.

In addition, the movie became the number one film in New Zealand on opening weekend and is in the number two spot in Australia after it opened in both countries on August 24, the press release noted.

The film has been what many called the sleeper hit of the summer and remains in more than 2,000 theaters after its release on July 4, the Studio previously noted. It has earned, as of September 3, $181,967,046, Box Office Mojo noted. And it now “ranks in the Top 10 Box Office Cume for the year,” the release added.

In the movie, which is based on a true story, Caviezel portrays Tim Ballard, a federal agent who quits his job and embarks on a dangerous mission to rescue a young girl from sex slavery in South America.

In July, the studio announced that the hit film would be released globally, appearing in theaters across the world, in Latin American countries, the U.K., and Ireland between August and October following its success at the domestic box office.
