Weekend Box Office: Presidential Campaign Hits the Movie Screens
This waning summer weekend at the North American box office was so weak that a fear-mongering documentary warning about the dire consequences of a second term for President Obama made it to #8 on the Top Ten. I doubt “2016: Obama’s America” is going to sway many voters, but it’s an indication of the heated and inflammatory rhetoric that’s to come in these final weeks of the presidential race. As far as going to the movies is concerned, I’d rather stick with the campaign antics of Will Ferrell and Zach Galafianakis! As for the three other new films on this weekend’s list, none of them even broke $7 million. With no sure-fire blockbusters on the docket until November’s final entry from “The Twilight Saga,” Hollywood movie execs must be dusting off their holiday decorations and counting the minutes until summer ends.
