Following its successful result on the North American box office, "2016: Obama's America" is set to expand its distribution to more markets domestically. After grabbing a satisfying $6.3 million from 1,091 theaters nationwide, the documentary will continue to open in more theaters Stateside based on moviegoers' demand.
"We still live in a consumer-driven capitalistic economy and if there is demand we will do everything we can to meet it with supply," director Dinesh D'Souza told The Hollywood Reporter about the plan. "Our plan is to do our best to expand this film to as many theaters as the people demand. We'll be taking a close look at various markets and determining where we go next."
Speaking about the controversial documentary, producer Gerard Molen said that the anti-Obama doc was a "truthful" film and that there were a lot of people agreed with it. "All of my movies have been about telling the truth," he gushed. "That's important to me. We've gone out of our way to make a movie that's fair and truthful. And these numbers tell me that the American people agree wit that assessment."
Molen, who was also a frequent collaborator of Steven Spielberg, said that he and the veteran director never had any political disagreement despite their different points of view. "I was a conservative," he told THR. "But I never hid my politics either. With my more liberal friends I've worked with, there was never a problem with disagreeing politically. It is the American way."
"2016: Obama's America" stole the attention this week as it scored a per screen average of $5,717, which was the best location average of any film in the top 10 box office. The movie also became the biggest conservative documentary of all time, beating Nathan Frankowski's Darwinism pic "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed".
Directed by D'Souza and John Sullivan, the movie focuses on the alleged anger at colonialism that Obama inherited from his father. The film examines the question, "If Obama wins a second term, where will we be in 2016?"
