Historic! ‘The Obama Effect’ Racks Up a Blockbuster $84,000 Opening Weekend

Posted by on Jul 18, 2012 at 5:06 pm

Via Iowahawk on Twitter, this juicy little nugget. It turns out Obama just doesn’t have that box office mojo. The domestic total adjusted gross for the opening weekend in 25 theaters was $83,900, a piddling $3356 per theater. I don’t know where those theaters are, but probably safe to say in assorted liberal enclaves, TV newsrooms and insane asylums.

Really, it would be sad if it weren’t so amusing.

Kurt Schlichter tore this nonsense to shreds a couple of days ago.

“The Obama Effect” is directed by, and stars, Charles S. Dutton, the spherical actor best known as one of the people who screwed up the Alien franchise with his performance in “Alien3.” From the utterly unhinged trailer, this flick is not going to earn him my forgiveness. The express madness of the trailer is matched only by the bizarre political contentions and assumptions implied within its 2:31 minute running time.

This thing is simply nuts, but it’s an important kind of nuts because it provides us a window into the swirling minds of those on the other side who really believe this idiocy. And it’s important to understand their ideas, their thoughts and their feelings. No, not so we can come together in unity but so that we can use that understanding to more effectively mock them and defeat and destroy their hideous progressive dreams.

Read the whole thing, or Schlichter will mock you contemptuously.

Then there’s another Obama move also released July 13 that took in $31,600, but that was just from one theater.

Of course that one isn’t a slobbering portrayal of the failed president.

IT MAY not have been a threat to threaten last weekend’s box office, “Ice Age 4: Continental Drift,” but a conservative filmmaker’s anti-Obama documentary cleaned up at one single Texas multiplex.

“2016: Obama’s America” — based on Diniseh D’Souza’s book “The Roots of Obama’s Rage” — grossed an estimated $31,750 at Edward Houston Marq’E Stadium 23 & IMAX, where management said about 200 additional moviegoers were turned away because the shows were sold out, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

That haul put it behind only “Ice Age 4” and “The Amazing Spider-Man” at the theater for the weekend, the manager said.

Somehow I’m sure Obama would like to take credit for that impressive showing.

    Seems like self-fulfilling prophecy because we have many examples of “The Obama Effect.” Everything the presidential boob touches turns to crap.

    How fitting is it that a convicted felon in Charles S. Dutton took it upon himself to make a movie about the “greatest man to ever live in the history of the universe” or something.
