Hollywood Upset: “Indiana Jones” Beaten at Box Office on July 4th by Christian Film From Small, Upstart Outlier Utah-Based Movie Company

July 06, 2023

“Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny,” number 1 for the weekend, was beaten by something “Sound of Freedom,” a Christian movie from a small, sketchy film company that doesn’t actual say it’s Christian. Verástegui long ago starred in a little indie film called “Bella,” that won kudos on the festival circuit. The film was made in Colombia by Angel Studios, which is owned the Harmon brothers (Neil, Jeff, Jordan and Daniel) and Benton Crane. The main thing here, though, is the Harmons and Crane upset the normal course of events on Tuesday. “Indiana Jones” is already on shaky ground financially with a poor marketing plan that has backfired.
