‘American Sniper’ is SO Popular It’s Done Something Only 50 Other Films Have in History

If you haven’t seen “American Sniper” yet then you can count yourself amongst the unfortunate few because it still continues to break box office records weeks after its release. The movie, based on the life of “the deadliest sniper in American history” Chris Kyle, has now accomplished something only 50 other movies have. From CNBC:

Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Village Roadshow Pictures’ Oscar-nominated blockbuster “American Sniper” continues to make cinema history, crossing $300 million at the domestic box office today. The announcement was made today by Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

Directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller, “American Sniper” has continued to fill conventional and IMAX theatres nationwide. It is now the top-grossing war movie of all time, Bradley Cooper’s biggest live-action feature ever, and the second-highest-grossing R-rated drama ever. In addition, it is the first Warner Bros. non-franchise film, only the seventh Warner Bros. release of any kind, and one of only 50 films in cinema history to achieve this milestone domestically.

Not surprisingly, liberals have used the occasion to attack Chris Kyle, which seems rather unwise given just how much Americans love the movie. What they’re discovering is how Americans react when movies actually show appreciation for the military instead of deriding their efforts and degrading them. Maybe Hollywood is learning a lesson.

    I think they will see the movie’s success as an aberration and go back to making another “Stop Loss” or “In the Valley of Elah” to remind us how much we’re supposed to hate or pity the military.

    No. Tell me something that democrats have actually learned. There are only two things that they know how to do, repeat the same failed policies OVER and OVER again, and spend taxpayer dollars ten times faster than the IRS can collect it.

    No. Liberalism will not allow for the idea that anything is bad enough to warrant an act of war or the idea that anything is worth risking one’s life for….

    I would hope that Clint Eastwood would use some of the profits to make sure that Clint Kyle’s widow and kids are financially secure for the rest of their lives. I think that Eastwood is a good man so I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he did.

    They know what we think about American Sniper and they don’t really care. They will keep robbing us blind and take away anything they can. Soros is getting even richer off of our losses of our freedoms and our country. They will keep doing what they are doing until it is finished because for whatever reason, they are United States of America haters. Rich people have the attitude that the more money they have, the more power they have and they want it all.

    I hope Mrs Kyle is finacially supported now. she gave much of the information for the m ovie . I enjoyed it so much I went to see it a second time with my son .Strange the one man who could shot over a mile was killed by a supposedly mentally challenged man . Glad the jury didn’t fall for that .
