2016: Obama Movie ROCKING U.S Movie Theaters
August 24, 2012

Schindler's List producer Gerald Molen delivers a documentary that will rattle supporters of President Obama.

“Love him or hate him, you don’t know him.”  The promotions for the new “2016” movie all feature this statement and fans and critics AGREE. Barack Obama, after almost four years in The White House, is still an enigma, and at best, has been a confusing under-performer.

Producer Gerald Molen’s movie looks into the future at what 2016 might look like in America,  if Barack Obama’s campaign succeeds in wrestling away another presidential term.  The headliner in the movie may not be Barack Obama, but his half-brother George.  Obama’s father was a polygamist with four wives and a flock of children.  George is apparently considered a rebel in the family, and lives in Nairobi, Kenya in abject poverty.  He converses a bit in the movie about  the contrast of his life and his multi-millionaire half brother he barely knows.

The biggest surprise?  “2016” is only showing on ONE-THIRD of all movie screens in the country, yet it’s marching up the box office charts.

Barack Obama's half-brothe, George, makes his debut in "2016." yet it has climbed to third place in tickets sold behind only "The Expendables 2" and "The Bourne Legacy." It's a weak week at the box office, but NOT THAT weak. Conservatives simply have a picture to see...that speaks to THEM. Check your local listings. You might have to drive. But it's getting strong reviews. Here's the trailer:

From Deadline Hollywood:

The pic is based on conservative author and commentator Dinesh D’Souza’s New York Times bestselling 2010 book The Roots Of Obama’s Rage and co-directed by D’Souza and John Sullivan and produced by Academy Award winner Gerald R. Molen (co-producer of Schindler’s List). It opened on July 13th in a preview on a single screen in Texas grossing almost $32,000

Gerald Molen has been successful producer for Steven Spielberg. This time he produces for the OTHER side of the aisle.

during its opening weekend, then expanded into 61 theaters including New York and Los Angeles. In August, the film widened to 169 theaters nationwide and expanded again this weekend. “Yes, I also didn’t believe it when I first saw the film taking off in pre-sales on Tuesday,” an exhibition insider tells me. “Because there’s not a lot of new product that’s taking off.”

Hollywood distribution experts expect 2016 Obama’s America to fare similarly to that Kirk Cameron faith-based movie Fireproof. It was #1 in Fandango’s advance sales and did remarkably well during its opening Friday – but then ended up somewhere around #4 at the box office for the weekend.

Americans who like Barack Obama are STILL confused by him, and may join the audience for 2016.

The Kitchen Cabinet movie critic?  PREDICTS A SMASH HIT!  Many Americans are curious about the Obamas, about the gap they see between the promise of Hope and Change, and Obama’s directionless presidency.  Democrats, Independents and Republicans alike will see this movie.  Screenwriters elected a president by writing his challenge speeches.  It seems fitting that Screenwriters should write him….out.
