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
