To the delight of those who thought the film was censored in France, the thriller beloved by American conspiracy theorists will arrive on the big screen.
Sound of Freedom will therefore be released on November 15 in French cinemas, as announced by its distributor, Saje, in a press release. Thriller recounting in a very fictionalized way the exploits of a cop in the attack on pedophile networks, Sound of Freedom was a big hit in the USA when it was released on July 4 (the American national holiday): 190 million dollars in revenue for less than 15 million budget, particularly among American conspiracy theorists, who saw in this film a fiction resonating with the most suspicious themes (the elites plotting to kidnap kids and prostitute them), and thanks to a “pay it forward” system where spectators were encouraged to buy tickets to offer them to those around them. Jim Caviezel (The passion of Christ by Mel Gibson), the star of the film, is a practicing Catholic who has repeatedly relayed the conspiracy creed.
Since its release in the USA, French conspiracy theorists have been demanding the release of the film on social networks, adding to its sulphurous aura and suggesting that Sound of Freedom would be the victim of real censorship (it would be forgetting that not all foreign films are released in French theaters for various reasons, such as a purchase price that is too high in relation to its potential success – fans of horror films s make it a reason year after year).
Sound of Freedom: what is this conspiracy film that is a hit in the USA?
“We hope that the film can raise awareness by allowing a peaceful and fruitful debate with the help of experts, investigative journalists and associations who have been working on these subjects for years.”, as announced by its distributor Saje in a press release.
