Just saw it today. Unlike so many silly Hollywood horror movies this one is genuinely scary. Like coldly watching an approaching tornado
Just got back from noon showing. GREAT movie.
The theater was only 20% full however. Attendance needs to pick up if it is to have an impact.
I saw it yesterday in the Woodlands, Texas. The 2:05 showing was about 60-70% full. The movie was pretty well received. There was some applause at the end. Although I didn’t learn a whole lot, the film was well done and think it will keep gaining audiences.
My wife and I and some friends of ours saw it in Hickory, NC at the 7:15 pm showing, and the theater was 80% full.
Saw it in Williamsburg, VA last night.. theater was about half full.
I wonder if some of the theater owners who passed on having this film solely due to their own pro-Obama bias are now regretting it. Too bad - it was their own choice.
Maybe you didn't,(most conservatives knew this president was a sham from day one) but hopefully your friends and neighbors did. It's amazing the level of denial that goes on if you bring up any of the Marxist nonsense this president was raised with. I really think that people simply don't want to believe we could elect someone so evil that they shut down and just put everything down to "Republican obstructionism" or racism or whatever excuse the regime is giving that week for the decline of our country.
If this movie opens the eyes of 5% of the voting public we may have a chance to save ourselves.
Remember when Hollywood came out of the closet and released Brokeback Mountain? They showered it with rave reviews and awards, but you never really heard how it did where it counts, at the box office. Near as I can tell it was a major flop.
On the other side was The Passion of the Christ I remember everybody wanted to see it, church groups sponsored showings, but never a word about how it did. That's because it did great despite having no backing and running counter to Hollywood. IMHO, the mainstream reaction to this movie will be a lot like that was.
Caller to local radio talkshow in central Pennsylvania urges that you check your ticket to be sure it is for the right movie. Especially important if at a multiplex theater. Credit where credit is due is critical.
I didn't hear anything new, but Freepers are usually well informed. It was well put together and stayed away from controversial topics that can't be proved. He hit some topics like Obama’s one sided nuclear disarmament of America that should help wake up the uninformed.
I liked George Obama. He was well spoken.
I remember at the time of Brokeback, that some liberal columnist wrote that the Academy lost its guts, since Brokeback didn’t win best picture.
The charge was that the Academy Awards voters were afraid of the reaction from “middle America” if they voted Brokeback as best picture. The forgettable movie “Crash” won that honor instead. And to the liberals, Brokeback was a magnificent movie in and out, but, because America is homophobic and all that, it didn’t win an award it so obviously (to liberals) deserved.
IIRC, Brokeback grossed about 170 mill worldwide, on a 14 mill budget. Hardly a flop.
I find it a victory that this film made to theaters.
And a greater victory that it didn’t immediately die on the vine.
Went some distance to see it last night. The 7:00 showing was sold out. Very respectable house for the 9:30 showing. The two branch theater was only showing it in one of its branches because they could only get one printing of it, per their security guard.
Following the movie, enthusiastic applause.
Just saw it in Roanoke today. Great documentary on Obama and his anti-colonial view of the world and America in particular. My wife and I were disappointed that there were so many “geezers” including us. Young mothers and fathers really need to see this!!!!!

Saw it FRI night in BHM, AL with 2 friends at the 7:20 p.m. showing in a Carmike theater. Got there 1/2 hour before the start. Seating was already 1/3rd full. Demographics were 85% >40 years of age - totally white. By show time theater was nearly full. Quiet as a tomb during and after the movie.
During the previews they showed a preview of a Mexican film coming with English sub-titles ... some thing like “Letters from ...”
Guess FR keeps me up to speed on BHO. The only 2 new take-aways for me were ...
1. More background on his Indonesian adoptive father, Soerto, and how Stanley Anne Dunham divorced him because he took a job with an American oil company.
2. DD’s interview with BHO’s half brother in Kenya. It was fascinating to hear him say (a) BHO didn’t owe him anything, and, (b) Kenya would be much better off financially had the UK maintained its presence in Kenya.
2 small beefs ...
1. The interviews/conversations with several conservative commentators had them doing their interviews over cell phones while the cameras were rolling. Looked fake.
2. The map DD displayed near the end where he drew a barbed wire boundary around the Muslim nations from Morocco to Pakistan and declared them the new United States of Islam. He should have included Turkey, Bangladesh, and Indonesia (and maybe some of the former U.S.S.R. central Asian states).
Otherwise, a very well done film. The under 40 crowd needs to see this movie, but they do not appear to be coming.
Crash was not forgettable. It was a good movie.
I wish DD had included about another 4 to 5 mins of clips of Obama’s own words over the previous campaign on his promises and what he actually did and some more of his blatant lies and verbal slip ups like when he said he was a Muslim.
Re: Otherwise, a very well done film. The under 40 crowd needs to see this movie, but they do not appear to be coming.
Also noted a lack of minorities at the 2:10 matinee. When the movie ended there was a lot of clapping by attendees.
I wonder what it grossed in the US?
Just 45K less than #3 PARANORMAN, which is on over triple the number of screens.
How dos 2016 stack up against michael Moore’s faux documentaries??
Wonder if 2016 will be put up for any Oscars (yeah, I know, stupid questions)
We just returned from watching a late afternoon matinee showing of 2016 here in Western PA. Close to 50 people in the theater by showtime, about 70% of whom were over 60.
The only 20-somethings I saw were the two ushers who popped in for 15 minutes to watch during their dinner break.
“this one is genuinely scary”
The scariest part for me was the teacher directing those kids singing to dear leader....I no longer recognize my country.
Went to the 11:05am showing in Lauhlin, NV. Pretty good turnout for first showing of the day.
This title reminds me of how Little League will give out a trophy for every player regardless of ranking. Yeah! 4th place....let’s celebrate.
I went this morning. It was about 40 percent filled.....nobody under 40...all white....most of them very old (80’s). It was an ok film. Too much on his youth which he had ZERO to say in the matter. I wish it was more about his policies and what 2016 could look like if he is reelected.
2. DDs interview with BHOs half brother in Kenya. It was fascinating to hear him say (a) BHO didnt owe him anything,
Obama doesn’t owe him anything. Why would Barack have to support some step brother that his father gave some sperm to some women too? That whole part of the movie was ridiculous.
That’s about what we encountered last Tues., or was it Monday - ? At 7:30pm.
Posted same on another thread.
Oh, I thought you meant this one:
According to Boxoffice Mojo, 83 mill & change.
