The filmmakers behind 2016: Obama’s America are claiming a coordinated attack engineered by supporters of Barack Obama to suppress the box-office results of the movie, which is a critical look at the president.

The film, the second-highest-grossing political documentary in U.S. box-office history, has made $32 million domestically since opening in mid July but took in only $938,000 during the recent weekend for a per-screen average of $771, down 27 percent from $1,060 per screen in the previous weekend, according to BoxOfficeMojo. Overall, the movie's boxoffice dropped 53 percent in the most recent weekend compared with the previous one, its largest decline since opening 10 weeks ago.

While such a drop isn't unusual for a movie during the course of a week -- especially when the theater count dropped from 1,876 to 1,216 -- filmmakers nevertheless say box-office results were artificially depressed for two reasons: a disinformation campaign spreading the false rumor that Fox News Channel would be showing the movie in its entirety Sunday and a pirated version of the film showing up on YouTube this weekend.

“Saturday morning, I started getting e-mails from groups and individuals either warning me about the piracy of 2016: Obama’s America or thanking me for allowing the movie to go online,” said Randy Slaughter, president of Rocky Mountain Pictures, the film’s distributor.

Filmmakers said they notified the FBI that the movie was available illegally and that they notified YouTube of a copyright breach, prompting the user to take down the film.

“We take this issue very seriously and are in contact with the FBI to investigate the parties that placed this on the Internet,” said John Sullivan, who co-wrote and co-directed the movie with Dinesh D’Souza.

Dinesh D'Souza brings 'Obama's America' to president's hometown

 

On Saturday, conservative commentator and college president Dinesh D’Souza made an appearance in Chicago at a special screening of his controversial film 2016: Obama’s America at the Gene Siskel Film Center before a sold-out audience of business people, conservative activists, and Republican officeholders and candidates.

 

In an exclusive interview, during a question and answer session, and through the movie itself, D’Souza made a compelling and unique argument to explain President Obama’s worldview and outlook for the future in a second term.

So what does the world look like in 2016 after a second Obama term? According to D’Souza it could feature a virtual United States of Islam encompassing the 22 nations of the Muslim world stretching from North Africa to Pakistan, an Israel brought to its knees, and a United States burdened with debt to the point of collapse and unable to exert any authority on the world stage.

 

This is a dismal view, indeed, but apparently a popular one. Including last weekend, 2016: Obama’s America has now surpassed $32 million in box office receipts nationally, making it the #2 political documentary of all time. By the time it is released on video on October 15, it is expected to be ranked as the fourth highest grossing documentary of any type ever.

 

In fact, the film is so effective in painting a picture of Barack Obama that Bill Kelly, whose Remember America Foundation and FreeCapitalismNow.com sponsored the event, said that if he had the choice between sending Mitt Romney to every undecided voter’s home or a copy of this movie to make the case to replace the president, he would send the movie. He is working on plans to distribute copies of the DVD to undecided voters when it becomes available next month.
