    Box Office Report: Anti-Obama Doc Beats New Films With $6.3 Mil on Eve of GOP Co …

Galvanizing conservatives Dinesh D’Souza and John Sullivan’s documentary 2016: Obama's America grossed a stellar $6.3 million as it expanded nationwide over the weekend, beating a trio of three new films.

The anti-Barack Obama film, opening last month in only a few theaters, now boasts a domestic cume of $9.2 million, the top gross of the year for a documentary (excluding nature films). Bully was the previous crownholder with $3.5 million.

Among other records, Obama's America is now the top conservative documentary of all time, beating out Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed ($7.7 million).

Obama's America -- promoted heavily on talk radio and distributed by Rocky Mountain Pictures -- timed its nationwide expansion to the Republican National Convention, which gets underway this week in Tampa, Fla.

Otherwise, it was a dismal weekend for new offerings. Holdovers dominated the box office chart, led by Lionsgate and Millennium Films' The Expendables, which grossed $13.5 million in its second weekend for a 10-day domestic cume of $52.3 million.

Sony's new Joseph Gordon-Levitt action thriller Premium Rush came in No. 8, opening to a muted $6.3 million. The film cost just north of $30 million to produce and is directed by noted screenwriterDavid Koepp, who co-wrote the script with John Kamps.

Premium Rush centers on a New York City bicycle messenger (Gordon-Levitt) who is pursued throughout the city by a dirty cop (Michael Shannon) who wants an envelope the messenger has.Gavin Palone produced.

New offbeat indie comedy Hit & Run placed No. 10 for the weekend, grossing a disappointing $4.7 million for a five-day opening of $5.9 million.

Hit & Run, from Open Road Films, stars Dax ShepardKristen BellBradley Cooper and Tom Arnold and is a romantic action comedy about a former getaway driver who emerges from witness protection to help his girlfriend get to California. It was produced for less than $2 million, excluding a nationwide marketing spend.

Dark Castle's supernatural thriller The Apparition, which Warner Bros. is distributing, couldn't crack the top 10 in its debut, grossing $2.3 million to come in No. 12. Directed by Todd Lincoln, the film stars Twilight's Ashley Green.

So...how many people saw the film because they were curious?
How many people who don't like Obama anyway would waste their money seeing a film about Obama, whether it was positive or negative?

This means nothing.
