Sound of Hope: The Story of Possum Trot scored the second-best opening day for Angel Studios, falling only behind last year’s Sound of Freedom.

The latest film from Angel Studios opened on July 4, earning a total of $3.5 million on its opening day and going on to gross an additional $3.2 million over the Independence Day weekend.

“We are thrilled with how audiences have showed up and responded to SOUND OF HOPE, even during a busy holiday weekend,” said Brandon Purdie, executive vice president and head of theatrical distribution at Angel Studios. “SOUND OF HOPE is more than a movie. This true story of 22 families that changed the course of the lives of 77 vulnerable children has sparked a movement. We are confident that the film will continue to grow and impact audiences, so no child will be without a home.”


The film’s focus is on Donna Martin, played by Nika King, and her husband Bishop W.C. Martin, played by Demetrius Grosse, as they seek to adopt children into their home, prompting the other families in their church to do the same. One of the four children adopted by the Martin family is Terri, played by Diaana Babnicova, a 12-year-old girl who was abused in her original home.

The release of Sound of Hope marked the 1-year anniversary of Sound of Freedom, the film that put Angel Studios on the Hollywood map. Like Sound of Hope, the film earned the rare A+ rating from CinemaScore, and went on to gross over $184 million in North America and over $250 million globally.
