Obama’s America was the No. 3 film of the weekend behind The Dark Knight and Totall Recall at Union Square, prompting at least one film executive to joke that people must have thought it was a pro-Obama documentary (New York is the No. 1 city when it comes to the amount of giving to the Obama campaign).
Obama’s America intends to show how the country’s future will look if Barak Obama is elected to a second term in the White House and includes an interview with the president’s half brother, George Obama.
“I think the reason why the film is doing so well is threefold — we’ve expanded into good markets, we’ve been advertising nationally for two weeks on talk radio and television news channels including Fox News Channel, A&E, the History Channel and MSNBC,” Sullivan told The Hollywood Reporter.
Obama’s America also is doing big business in cities including Sacramento, Greenville, N.C., Dallas, San Antonio, Las Vegas, Honolulu and Tampa.
