The Chosen’s latest season enjoyed an impressive launch in Brazil last week and celebrated its worldwide success with a stunning nighttime projection onto the Christ the Redeemer monument showcasing various clips and photos from the series.


The latest season of The Chosen had a remarkable debut in Brazil, marked by a stunning nighttime projection onto the Christ the Redeemer monument, showcasing highlights from the series. Season 4 kicked off with Episodes 1 and 2 screening on 1,000 screens, attracting 275,000 moviegoers, a significant surge of over 300 percent compared to Season 3’s launch in 2023. The season secured the No. 2 spot at the Brazilian box office for the weekend, reflecting Brazil’s position as the second-largest audience for The Chosen globally, following only the United States.

The series’ official social media hailed the projection on the Christ the Redeemer monument as a gesture of appreciation towards a nation that has embraced The Chosen warmly. This event was organized in collaboration with the Archdiocese of São Sebastião do Rio de Janeiro. The Chosen has garnered a viewership of over 200 million worldwide.

The Christ the Redeemer statue, a renowned symbol completed in 1931 after five years of construction, stands 98 feet tall atop Corcovado Mountain. Financed entirely by the Archdiocese of Rio de Janeiro and donors, it is considered one of the seven wonders of the modern world, with a chapel situated at its base.

Key cast members, including Jonathan Roumie (portraying Jesus), Paras Patel (Matthew), and Lara Silva (Eden), traveled to Brazil for exclusive premieres in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, gracing the “teal carpet” events. The projection onto the Christ the Redeemer monument occurred during the premiere in Rio de Janeiro, adding to the grandeur of the occasion.
