The conservative documentary “2016: Obama’s America” stole the show from Sly Stallone’s bad-ass geezers and three opening films at the weekend box office, on its way to an estimated $6.2 million total for the three days.

The $5,940 per-screen average posted by “2016: Obama’s America” was easily the best among films playing widely. “Expendables 2” stayed on top in its second week with $13.2 million averaging $3,950 from 3,355 theaters.

The documentary purports to tell what things will be like should the president be re-elected. Distributor Rocky Mountain Pictures expanded it into 1,091 theaters (from 169 last week) just in time to cash in on the buzz surrounding the Republican National Convention.

“2016: Obama’s America” is based on conservative author Dinesh D’Souza’s book, “The Roots of Obama’s Rage.” D’Souza co-directed with John Sullivan. Produced for a reported $2.1 million, it has made $9.3 million since its release seven weeks ago, and has surpassed ‘Bully” as the year’s top-earning documentary.

Director Sullivan has appeared on Fox News and the Discovery Channel to promote the film and conservative commentators Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh have lauded it. Beck called it an election-season bomb, similar to Michael Moore’s 2004 film “Farenheit 9/11,” which was highly critical of President George W. Bush.
