Box Office Mojo is a universally accepted and respected source for box-office numbers, mainly because they’ve always done a very professional job of sticking to numbers and avoiding the business and political nonsense that tarnishes so many others. As of today, they’re reporting that at 10 locations, “The Undefeated” grossed $65,132, or $6513 per screen during its opening weekend.
1. “The Undefeated” ranks as #15 in the all-time highest grossing debut category (and this includes Michael Moore’s unique hold on this category). However — and this is a mighty important however – nine of the films ranked above the Palin doc opened on more screens — in some cases, hundreds more.
2. On a comparative number of screens (less than 10), “The Undefeated” enjoyed the fifth highest-grossing debut in the history of political documentaries.
3. Opening on a comparative number of screens (5 to 25), “The Undefeated” enjoyed the sixth highest per-screen average in the history of political documentaries.
The dishonest MSM is currently out there using words like “tepid” and “flop” and are desperate to not trip over their own well-groomed anti-Palin narratives by providing the proper context when it comes to these numbers; which clearly prove that for what it is — a political documentary — “The Undefeated” is kicking all kinds of box-office ass when compared to its counterparts.
