Wicked Commentary

“The anti-Obama documentary based on Dinesh D’Souza’s book “The Roots of Obama’s Rage” expanded nationwide on Friday — with early first-place showings in the domestic box office rankings, Deadline Hollywood reports.

As of late Friday afternoon, “2016: Obama’s America” had grossed $700,000 from 1,090 theaters. That compared with $300,000 for the new big-budget, Sylvester Stallone action flick “The Expendables 2,” which is playing in 3,355 theaters, Deadline Hollywood reports.

The early showing puts Obama’s America on track to gross $1.2 million to $1.7 million on Friday alone, with as much as $3.7 million to $5 this weekend, according to Deadline Hollywood. Its afternoon ranking will likely be eclipsed by “Expendables” and several new releases, including “Ride Like Hell,” starring Michael Shannon.

Exhibitors reported that busloads of filmgoers arriving at theaters to see Obama’s America in pre-organized trips, Deadline Hollywood reports.

Last weekend, Obama’s America grossed $1.2 million in select markets, including New York City, and had a total gross of $2.1 million from a total of 169 theaters.

The low-budget film features author D’Souza outlining facts to assist viewers in gaining an understanding of the apparent motivations behind a number of President Barack Obama’s policies.

In an exclusive interview with Newsmax last week, D’Souza said that Obama’s policies are unmaking the American Dream.

So far, “2016” is the second-best gross of the year for a documentary after “Bully” ($3.2 million), but that list excludes the nature documentaries “Chimpanzee” ($29 million) and “To the Arctic” ($7.6 million), according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The documentary opened last month and is already the 12th-highest-grossing political documentary of all time. It also is the No. 2 conservative documentary after “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed” ($7.7 million), according to the Reporter.”

  3. We’ll probably see it with our next trip to Lexington KY. Pepp tells me it’s playing there. That’s about an hour and a half away.

    Lexington, KY only has a population of just over 300,000 folks (mainly radical bastards from hell much to my dismay), but by the number of movie theaters here one would think 2,000,000 live here. 2016 in only being shown in two theaters. The radical bastards I’m surrounded by are doing their best to down play this movie and make it very hard to see. I don’t think I’ve seen one single advertisement about 2016 shown on TV.

    I do remember a dreamomentary about Bush being assassinated that had TV ad’s running all the time and showed at just about every theater here. Go figure right? And some of you may wonder why my conservative ass gets cranky….go figure…

    I know ‘awk just LOVES coming to my little bastion from hell! 🙂
