From LA Times:
This recount worked out well for the right wing.
With final ticket sales tallied Monday, the conservative documentary”2016: Obama’s America” was the top new movie this weekend, selling $6.5 million worth of tickets in the U.S. and Canada.
Estimates compiled by studios Sunday morning showed Sony Pictures’ thriller “Premium Rush” with a slight lead at $6.3 million, compared with $6.2 million for the anti-Obama film, directed by conservative pundit Dinesh D’Souza.
It’s a remarkable achievement for the movie, distributed by Rocky Mountain Pictures, given that it played at only 1,091 theaters, compared with 2,225 for “Premium Rush,” which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a New York City bike messenger in danger.
