The anti-Barack Obama film is now the top-grossing documentary of the year (excluding nature docs), besting the $3.5 million earned by Bully.Obama's America came in ahead of three other new films opening at the domestic office: Premium Rush, which earned $2 million to come in only No. 8 for the day; offbeat indie comedy Hit & Run, which placed No. 10 with $1.4 million; and Dark Castle's supernatural thriller The Apparition, which grossed $1.2 million to rank 12th.
It's not clear where Obama's America, distributed by Rocky Mountain Pictures, will end up for the weekend, though most box-office observers believe it will gross in the $6 million range. On Friday, the documentary upped its theater count from 169 to 1,090, just as Republicans began heading to Tampa, Fla., where the Republican National Convention begins Monday.Obama's America did well in a number of the large cities where it opened Friday, including Denver, Phoenix and San Diego.
