The Expendables 2 Explodes Again, Anti-Obama Documentary Soars

by at . Comments

The Expendables 2 once again took a machine gun to its box office competitors this weekend, taking in the most money for a second consecutive Friday and Saturday, this time by about $4 million over The Bourne Legacy.

But it was a mostly quiet weekend in Hollywood, with few new films opening and Sylvester Stallone's sequel winning the weekend with a haul of just $13.9 million.

The major movie news instead centered around 2016: Obama’s America, a conservative documentary that cracked the top 10 overall, earning $6.2 million and enjoying an impressive per-theater average of over $5,700.

The flick has now grossed $9.2 million. It ranks first all-time among conservative documentaries.

Look for it to continue to excel in the face of this week's Republican National Convention - but still has space miles to go in order to match  Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11, which took in $119.2 million in 2004.

Here is a look at the top 10:
  1. The Expendables 2 – $13.5 million
  2. The Bourne Legacy – $9.3 million
  3. ParaNorman – $8.6 million
  4. The Campaign – $7.4 million
  5. The Dark Knight Rises – $7.2 million
  6. The Odd Life of Timothy Green – $7.1 million
  7. Premium Rush – $6.3 million
  8. 2016: Obama’s America – $6.2 million
  9. Hope Springs – $6.0 million
  10. Hit and Run – $4.7 million

Calling Obama an unqualified, incompetent fool doesn't make you a racist. It just means you are a realist. Has nothing to do with race.

I have no idea about the Obama flick,but,I just want to say that Expendables #2 is Phenomenal! Can't wait to see Expend' #3? Though,I expect they may take a minute,and I fully understand why...I doubt Mr. Stallone will be in a very big movie-making mood,with the loss of his son Sage so fresh...A horrible tragedy to say the least...My respect and condolences go out to him and the rest of his family...However,I will just say: Thank you Mr. Stallone for all of the great and memorable characters you've given to everyone over the years,and I wish you much peace and solace during this dark trying time...Your movies are great. So are you. And, so was Sage...HW.

@ Anytime someone calls Obama out, as an anti-American, poor excuse for a President, they're racist. The lying, phony, race baiting, President, is of mixed race, blacks who vote for him, JUST BECAUSE he is part black, are the racists. The term racist is used too loosly. Anytime a non-black, disagrees, with a black, the non-black, is a racist? Obama is a con man, if you voted for him in '08, you were fooled, if you vote for him in '12, you're just plain, dumb.

A film about an anti-American, Communist loving, Muslim born, American President. And an action film, about senior citizens, who can still kick butt. Combine the two, American heros, kidnap an American president, who is set on the destruction, of the country. They give him a drug that clears all memory, and drop him off, at a hut in Kenya.
