Posted on 08/24/2012 4:09:21 PM PDT by Beave Meister
FRIDAY 2 PM: The anti-Obama movie 2016 Obamas America went into wider release around America today and is opening right now in first place at the domestic box office. Thats quite a feat since the Rocky Mountain Pictures political documentary is still playing in only 1,090 North American theaters or about 1/3 as many theaters as big-budget actioner The Expendables 2 (3,355 theaters). But these political documentaries like faith-based films are frontloaded. The Stallone picture from Millenium/Lionsgate is still expected to end the weekend #1 and should top the box office tonight. And, based on matinee trends, 2016 Obamas America looks to gross $1.2M-$1.7M Friday for a $3.7M-$5.0M weekend. But right now it has grossed $700,000 today compared to $300,000 for The Expendables 2. Its new cume after this weekend could make it the #1 conservative documentary (ahead of Expelled: No Intelligence Alloweds $7.7M). The success of the anti-Obama pic is based on big pre-sales leading into the Republican National Convention August 27-30, and exhibitors are reporting busloads of filmgoers arriving at theaters around the country in pre-organized trips. It also employed much of the same marketing techniques used to garner attention and support for faith-based films, understandable since the audience is overlapping. Its campaign included advertising nationally over the past two weeks on talk radio and cable news channels including Fox News Channel, A&E, History and MSNBC.

Truth about Obama is immediately characterized as anti-Obama.
I am dying to see this movie. Sadly I’m doing hurricane prep now, so hopefully I’ll have time this weekend to catch it, almost done with prep.

That said, most of its readers are in the industry, meaning that they tend to skew well to the left.
I was very surprised then to see that the bulk of the comments were very much supportive of this film and its message.
I've seen it, and it's well worth anyone’s time.
Celluloid smelling salts for the public. Better than popcorn.
Remember when the media was falling all over itself to label Fahrenheit 9/11 as anti-Bush, neither do I.
Saw this at the 4 pm show and it was well done. Packed theatre although there was one person younger than me (I’m 50). My husband was there too (he’s 51) so maybe just retirees were able to make it to the matinee. I’ve read several books so there wasn’t a lot of new info in it for me.
There’s a 1:15 matinee tomorrow for 7 bucks ... I’m ON it.
Would someone please move this to the forum?
It’s not worth my time. I don’t need to watch a movie to see how we’ve been cornholed by this pr**k.
Liberals don't miss a chance to misrepresent and malign Conservatives.
You don;t need to see the movie, for sure, but is there anyone you think you could/should/would take?
Buy someone some popcorn, and let the movie explain the rest of it.
Everybody who needs it would punch me, so no.
LOL, THAT, I understand!
