By all indications, the new movie “2016: Obama’s America” is quickly shaping up to be a traveling TEA party rally the way visiting Chick-fil-A earlier this month was and still is.
The film is based on the bestselling brilliant expose of Barack Obama’s plans for America by Dinesh D’Souza. It deconstructs the lies we have been fed by Obama’s handlers since he came on the national scene six years ago. In this 1 hour and 29 minute film, D’Souza explains that Hope and Change was merely a phrase given substance by addled-brained fools who thought he was “cool.”
The movie that should have been made four years ago, “2016: Obama’s America” is becoming a grassfire spreading across the country. D’Souza shows us Obama’s plan to level America and put us on our knees before the Third World, which is where his heart really is.
This hard-hitting documentary, produced for just $2.5 million, grossed an impressive $1.24 million during the first weekend while showing at only 169 theaters nationwide. Now the sky is the limit as it becomes the latest way to show the Left we are ready for a fight in November that we intend to win.
As soon as “2016” was released, it became a head-turner. Entertainment Weekly (EW) has tagged 2016 as a “major sleeper” saying: “Bubbling under the Top 10 at number 13, the anti-Obama documentary 2016 Obama’s America expanded from 61 theaters into 169 locations, and increased its gross by 294 percent to $1.25 million. Tellingly, the film’s per theater average increased from $5,202 to $7,391 this weekend, a rare feat at the box office — but especially when a film’s theater count nearly triples. 2016 Obama’s Americahas grossed $2.1 million in six weeks, and if it maintains this sort of momentum, it could become a major sleeper hit. Keep an eye on it.”
The EW report continued with its explanation of just how well “2016” is actually doing by saying: “Here’s how things have gone for 2016: Obama’s America, though: Three weekends ago, 2016 earned $34,133 out of 10 theaters, which gave it a per theater average of $3,413 — not all that remarkable for a limited release. When it expanded into 61 theaters the next weekend, its per theater average did a funny thing: it jumped up to $5,202. Last weekend, the film experienced an even bigger expansion, into 169 theaters, and again, its per theater average substantially leapt up to $7,365.”
Let’s make that number go up again. I’ll be watching “2016” tonight at my local theater; how about you?
