American Sniper, the story of Chris Kyle starring Bradley Cooper, set all-time box office records this weekend.
Chris Kyle’s pinpoint accuracy saved countless American lives on the battlefield and turned him into a legend.
Via The Hollywood Reporter: Warner Bros. is reporting that American Sniper is set to post a Friday-through-Sunday of $90.2M with a cume to date of $93.6M. By tomorrow, with the MLK holiday, the Village Roadshow co-prod cume is looking to post a four-day of $105.2M and an overall cume of $108.6M. Unheard of for any wide release at this time of year. What record did the movie American Sniper NOT break?
This news prompted America-hater and leftist hero Michael Moore to tweet out this:
My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren't heroes. And invaders r worse

Moore later praised those who killed Americans who liberated Iraq from Saddam Hussein and fought to keep it free from Islamist terrorists as “brave”.
“But if you’re on the roof of your home defending it from invaders who’ve come 7K miles, you are not a sniper, u are brave, u are a neighbor.”

What a horrible person.
Moore was voted off the Academy’s governing board for documentaries in 2013.
