Sight & Sound Films is celebrating the successful release of their new film, ‘I Heard the Bells’ which opened in the Top 10 at the box office grossing $2 million, according to Christian Headlines. The film was such a hit that its showings in the theater have been extended nationwide to reach a larger audience. Director Joshua Enck, who is the president and chief story officer of Sight & Sound, expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the hundreds of thousands of people who came to see the movie.
Enck shared, “We are overwhelmed by the stories that are pouring in from across the country […] And because of the incredible response at the box office, we just found out that the release is being extended, and more showtimes and locations are being added nationwide,” adding that “we never would have dreamed that this new chapter of making films would start with a movie in the top 10 at the box office…But above all, thank you for making it possible for this story of hope to ring out for so many people.”
‘I Heard the Bells’ tells the story of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and is based on the famous Christmas carol, ‘I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.’ Longfellow is an inspirational character as he was able to find hope and faith on Christmas Day after his life turned upside down as America was torn apart by the Civil War. The film’s story rings in the holiday season spreading hope to those who need it most as they are reminded of the Lord’s love and power.
The success of Sight & Sound’s first theatrical release is promising as more faith-based projects will likely be underway. As ‘I Heard the Bells’ grows in popularity across the country, more people will receive its important message of faith and the hope it gives while learning about the meaning behind the beloved Christmas carol and the real meaning of Christmas.
