BOX OFFICE: '2016: Obama's America' Nation's Number One Movie
breitbart.com ^ | 8/24/12

Posted on 08/24/2012 4:12:33 PM PDT by Justaham

The anti-Obama movie "2016 Obama’s America" went into wider release around America today and is opening right now in first place at the domestic box office. That’s 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). The Stallone picture from Millenium/Lionsgate is expected to end the weekend #1 and should top the box office tonight....

Both online ticket-sellers Fandango and MovieTickets.com showed advance buying for "2016 Obama’s America" were accounting for 35% to 28% respectively before this weekend.

Would those who have seen it go ahead and spoil it for us who might not get to?

Maybe a separate spoiler thread. TIA

That’s the loosest definition of “number one” I’ve ever heard. If Expendables wins Friday and wins the weekend, then Obama’s America was never “number one.” Unless they’re slicing it down to “number one” only during the early morning hours on Friday or something. It’s doing well and holding its own for sure, but it’s pure spin to claim it’s “number one.”

Get off it mate!

For a documentary of its type without any sex or explosions, it's a shocking success.

Don’t waste your money on Expendables 2. It is terrible. Even their attempts at self-deprecating humor were so poorly acted that they failed.

Go see Obama’s America.

Exactly. It is #1 in ‘on-line’ ticket sales, but it won’t be #1 at the box office, as it is not in enough theaters. It does have a shot at being #1 in per-screen average this weekend, though...bottom line; it is going to do very well for a limited-release documentary.

Agreed and it may have a chance of becoming number one. But I don't like misleading, pandering headlines from the right any more than I do from the left. Their article text itself states it won't be number one for Friday or the weekend, so the headline is unjustified.

The trailers seem to suggest Obama is here to destroy America. They use “downsizing” or such as a euphemism.

Just as I have been saying.

Have you seen the movie yet?

I agree with your list, BTW.

I took the day off and went with my mom, my mother-in-law and my brother-in-law. People in line for tickets where shocked there was a line for 11:30 am showing, they say they see all their movies early am and have NEVER seen a line. My guess, about 100 of us were there, not full but plenty crowded for that hour. Based on the line when we were leaving, we could not help but believe it would be sold out for the rest of the day!

I thought this was certainly an educational movie. I certainly learned things sitting in the theatre that I’ve never seen or heard anywhere else.

Take it up with the original author. The Breitbart article's information most likely came from a piece at the Deadline Hollywood website. I think Nikki Finke was trying to make sure she used the term "anti-Obama" in the title when that is not an accurate description of the movie at all.

OTHER FR THREAD: FIRST BOX OFFICE

DEADLINE HOLLYWOOD (where screenshot was taken) Anti-Obama Movie #1

There are interesting conversations via comments at the Deadline site.

That is true. But the movie surprisingly reveals that he is also a mendacious, hypocritical, malevolent marxist...

Finke probably did that because she wanted to make the top headlines on Drudge and get all the hits. #4 at the box office doesn’t cut it for breaking news. To me, it’s hype and spin to say a movie is #1 when only half of Friday’s ticket sales are in, and it’s not even being projected to be #1 for the full day, but that’s just me. It would be cool if it did make #1 for the full Friday though.

I was just saying on here a couple weeks ago that Obama's goal is global economic equality. To do that, the richest country in the world needs to be taken down to the economic level of poorer countries. Most of what Obama does can be seen as working towards the goal of destroying us economically, including racking up the debt. The trailers for this seemed to suggest that what I said is exactly the thesis of this movie, so I was pleased to hear that.

Just saw it this evening. It’s excellent.

One factoid I picked up from the movie: Obama’s mother split with Lolo Seotoro after he started hanging out with Western businessmen and joining an anti-communist political group. That was the wedge. It was too much for her leftist sensibilities.

Besides being well thought out and well written and putting forth a credible explanation of what drives Obama, it’s also a great looking movie. Whoever shot it and edited it did a beautiful job.

We saw it 2 days ago. It is excellent! Very well done but most of the stuff freepers already know. It gives obama’s world view and where he wants America to go. No more super power, no more best place in the world to be, he wants us to be just like every other country in the world. Equality with the turd world!

We ain't special ya’ll!

Thanks for the report. I’m doing what little I can to give it free promotion; hopefully word-of-mouth will get it going in other places.

Here’s a theater list - I think they update it regularly.
