Characterizing AMC as “an outstanding partner,” Angel Studios even announced that the theater chain was adding showings of “Sound of Freedom” to rise to the demand to see the film.
Earlier this month, “Sound of Freedom” was again in headlines after Fabian Marta, a funder of the film, was charged with being an accessory to child kidnapping. Marta’s name appears alongside the names of other donors in the film’s end credits.
In response, Angel Studios pointed out that as a partially crowdfunded project, thousands of individuals gave to “Sound of Freedom,” and Marta was not a main contributor.
Further, Marta’s lawyer argued that Marta’s criminal charge had been misrepresented in the media. Marta had been the landlord of a woman engaged in a custody dispute and was arrested as an accessory to kidnapping after providing living arrangements for the mother and her child.
Regardless of the controversies surrounding it, “Sound of Freedom” has resonated with audiences, who continue to flock to theaters to view the film.
Showings of “Sound of Freedom” remain available in 2,000 theaters.
