It's 2016, and the skies over America's heartland have turned tornado dark, seemingly for good. The economy has suffered a total collapse, and Americans are hungry and fearful. Anarchy reigns in some urban areas.
Ever since President Obama, deep into his second term, withdrew U.S. forces from Afghanistan and Iraq, the whole of the Middle East has fallen under the control of al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Such is the future in "2016: Obama's America," which hit theaters in July. Produced on a modest $2.5 million budget, it's amassed at least $32 million at the box office, according to Rocky Mountain Pictures, the film's distributor.
Although it may sound like the Hollywood adaptation of a dystopian, sci-fi graphic novel, "2016: Obama's America" ranks as the second-highest-grossing political documentary of all time in the United States. That's thanks to a vast, conservative-minded bloc of moviegoers whom producers, filmmakers and studios are racing to reach before they stream into voting booths in early November.
The film's unexpected popularity has raised expectations for a flood of reactionary, election-season movies that include "Runaway Slave," which features onetime GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain and a host of black conservatives inveighing against the tenets of liberalism; "Hating Breitbart," which chronicles the life of the late conservative pundit and Drudge-like Internet impresario Andrew Breitbart; and "Last Ounce of Courage," about a small-town Christian mayor, Marshall Teague, who refuses to acknowledge the separation of church and state, which earned $2.7 million over two weeks.

Mark Cuban is a lunatic.
Batman - The Dark Knight did pretty good too...
“The Obama Effect” on the other hand, imploded rather spectacularly, almost creating a singularity in the process.
Cuban made a movie earlier. It was about 2 us soldiers who allegedly raped and murdered an Iraqi 14 year old girl:
“As we’ve been reporting, the movie “Redacted” will be released this week. Only a few theaters will show it, but billionaire Mark Cuban, who financed the film, is pushing the project hard.
Directed by Brian DePalma, the movie graphically shows two drunk U.S. soldiers raping and murdering a 14-year-old Iraqi girl and committing other atrocities.’
The man is leftist filth just like Jane Fonda.
2016 The Movie is being released on Oct. 16, ordered my copy from Amazon today.
I almost forgot about that idiotic box office flop Redacted. I have an idea for him. How about making a movie about all of the drugs/violence/rapes that go on in the NBA. Bet there’s a lot more there than in the military.
“Right Wing Films Big at Box Office”
In all the years “Fat Mikey” Moore has been making movies, I don’t recall anyone ever calling them “left wing.”
Papers like the Chronicle would always call whatever he squeezed out of his rear-end a `documentary.’
