Dinesh D'Souza and John Sullivan's conservative documentary "2016: Obama's America" expanded nationwide Friday to pleasing results, grossing $2.2 million to place No. 4 overall behind a trio of holdovers.
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. Smaller markets also turned in stellar numbers, including Baton Rouge, La., Wichita, Kan., Grand Junction, Colo., and Albany, NY.
OBAMA wants Congress to ban all such movies during an election year ... never heard that argument in 2000 2004 or 2008 when Mickie Moore was telling his lies. Truth hurts ...
