From the Grio.

An anti-Obama documentary, “2016: Obama’s America,” has topped the list of latest films this past weekend, earning $6. 2 million. The film is a conservative critique of what America would look like if President Barack Obama was reelected for his second term.

The documentary’s earnings placed it in the top 10 over the weekend after its showings expanded to 1,091 theaters. The film earned $9.1 million domestically and is expected to attract more conservative viewers due to the Republican National Convention taking place this week.

“Obama’s America” is based on the book “The Roots of Obama’s Rage,” written by Dinesh D’Souza, who co-directed the movie with John Sullivan.

    I realize we all see things through different prisms, but the film was not ANTI Obama, but was clearly a well researched documentary. Time will tell if it affects enough people to swing the election away from the President. May the best man win.

    I am curious. Was anyone else sold their tickets at a lower senior discount rate when it is clear you are not a senior? I am wondering if the theatres did this to keep the box office take down. Theatres take in the same amount per ticket no matter what is charged. The studio receives the balance. The theatre staff was clearly not supportive of this movie. There was rolling of eyes and attitude when people were buying their tickets for this show.
