Former President Donald Trump delivered a major update about his upcoming film, “Sound of Freedom,” on Sunday. In a post on his Truth Social platform, Trump said that the film is now complete and will be released in theaters on October 14, 2023.
“I am very proud of this film,” Trump wrote. “It is a powerful story about the importance of freedom and the courage of those who fight for it.”
The true story of Timothy Ballard, a former U.S. Navy SEAL who formed the charity group Operation Underground Railroad (OUR) to save children from sex trafficking, is the basis for the movie “Sound of Freedom.” Mel Gibson, Cathy Lee Crosby, and Sonya Walger are the movie’s stars.
Trump said that he is “confident that this film will inspire audiences around the world.” He added that he is “looking forward to sharing it with everyone.”
The 20th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks coincides with the same day as “Sound of Freedom’s” release date, which is significant. To “respect the memory of those who lost their lives on that sad day,” Trump said he picked this day.
The first movie Trump has made after leaving office is “Sound of Freedom.” In addition, he is working on a documentary about the attack on the US Capitol on January 6, which will be released later this year.
Mixed responses greeted Trump’s “Sound of Freedom” statement. While some people appreciated the movie for its message of bravery and freedom, others lambasted Trump for taking part in it.
Whatever the response, “Sound of Freedom” will undoubtedly spark debate. When it debuts in October, it will be intriguing to see how audiences react.
