WND: "America" Gains Steam, Tops Michael Moore Film

Originally published at WND.

Movie described as “a juggernaut that is building”

This weekend, Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary film, America: Imagine the World Without Her, earned an estimated $2.4 million to surpass Michael Moore’s genre-defining film, Roger & Me, en route to becoming the 7th-highest grossing political documentary of all time.

America was up 31 percent on Friday (from its previous Friday box office), grossing an estimated $947,000 on Saturday in 1,105 movie theaters nationwide to place America at No. 12 overall in the domestic film marketplace.

Through Saturday, America had grossed a cumulative total of $8,267,980, achieving the unusual feat of becoming a film that grosses virtually as much in the second week of distribution as in the first, instead of dropping off some 30 to 40 percent as is typical in the film industry.

America is a juggernaut that is building,” co-writer and co-producer of the film John Sullivan told WND when the box-office results became available on Sunday.

Controversy swirled last week after WND broke the story on Monday that the retail giant Costco had made a decision to pull D’Souza’s book America: Imagine a World Without Her on July 1, the day before D’Souza’s film was scheduled to open in movie theaters over the July 4 weekend.

The next day, on Tuesday, WND reported Costco gave in to pressure from irate customers and decided to reverse its decision, placing with the publisher Regnery a re-order for 25,000 copies to be delivered as soon as possible.

While Costco estimated that only some 20 stores nationwide still had copies of America that had not yet been returned, copies are scheduled to be in all Costco stores nationwide within two weeks.

In an appearance on Fox News this weekend on Mike Huckabee’s show, politically conservative Oscar-winning Jon Voight expressed his concern for the future of the United States, while endorsing D’Souza’s book America and encouraging the television audience to see the film by the same name.

On Sunday, D’Souza’s book America was ranked the No. 1 bestselling book on Amazon.com, a rank the D’Souza book has maintained since the Costco controversy broke last week.

    I am looking forward to seeing this movie, however, it is not playing in the Niagara Falls, NY or Buffalo, NY area. I am hoping it will be shown in one of our local theaters. It is a movie that needs to be seen all over this nation. We are living in perilous times and our nation needs to wake up. Hopefully this film will do just that and people will wake up to the truth.

    Saw this at Freedom Fest in Las Vegas this past Saturday. It was a privilege to have Dinesh make comments before the movie and then stay for comments afterwards. It’s a powerful statement and a wonderful movie. You present a balanced viewpoint, and you allow the opposite ideas to be aired next to each other.

    There is only one thing that would have made it better… Dinesh, since you weren’t raised in the US, you may not know about “It’s a Wonderful Life” — a 1946 movie starring Jimmy Stewart and filmed during a similar time of fear and uncertainty. The movie focuses on what would have happened if the Jimmy Stewart character had never been born. It showed a town in poverty, people who had died young, and misery that occurred because he wasn’t there to stop it. From the name of your movie, I had an expectation you would follow the same type of story line.

    If you do a sequel to this, the consequences of a world without America should be spelled out. As I’ve told many of my friends, December 1941 wasn’t just about the Pearl Harbor attack. Both Burma and Singapore were attacked by the Japanese around the same time. The difference? They strafed and bombed Pearl Harbor, but didn’t land. Why? BECAUSE the US was there. They LANDED in Burma and Singapore and the atrocities they visited on those places matched those we read about in The Rape of Nanking. There are many stories that can be referenced – what would have happened if there were no America? Hawaii was a strategic location. The entire population could have easily been wiped out had the US not been there.

    There are a lot of Monday morning quarterbacks debating the deeper philosophical implications of war and imperialism etc etc. I don’t think any sane person is “for” war. But all one has to do is visit their local Home Owners Association or sit in on a city or state legislative session to realize one stark reality: Humans don’t always play well together. No matter how you ponder the meaning of life and believe with all your heart that we can get along, well, we just haven’t figured that out yet. Meanwhile, there need to be some brave people who believe in Liberty and who are willing to stick their necks out to protect their fellow humans. Thank you for making that abundantly clear with this film and for being so willing to talk to those who are saying otherwise.
