American Sniper Breaks All-Time Record for Limited Release: Best Film in Decades

Longtime readers of Atlas Shrugs know how much I love movies — not the dreck that’s served up today, but the great golden age of Hollywood, when America was a proud force for good. Every Saturday night, I run a movie from that era that reminds my readers who and what we are and could be.

Tonight I saw a film that all Americans should see. Finally, a modern film that made me proud to be an American:  American Sniper. It tells the truth about the war we are in and the savages we are fighting (a word used repeatedly, I might add).

Every film about war about and since Vietnam, with few exceptions, has been a left-wing hate-filled attack on America. Proud, patriotic films about American heroism and goodness have gone the way of all great American institutions, such as individualism, liberty, and capitalism under the decades-long siege by the left.

Clint Eastwood can join the pantheon of great American directors such as Frank Capra and John Ford, proud Americans who loved their country and made films that reflected the culture of the good. We owe Clint Eastwood a huge debt.

Depraved leftists like Max Blumenthal hate the movie without even having seen it. Blumenthal said that Chris Kyle was “just a popular mass murderer.” No surprise — it’s what the left does: hate the good for being the good.

‘American Sniper’ Breaks Christmas Record in Limited Release
– December 26, 2014 | Dave McNary

“American Sniper” and “Selma” — the last awards contenders to open this year — have launched impressively in their Christmas Day debuts.

Warner Bros.’ “Sniper,” starring Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller, was particularly stellar with $240,212 at four venues — breaking the all-time record for a limited release under 10 screens on Christmas Day.

It played in Dallas, Los Angeles and New York.

Clint Eastwood directed the R-rated “American Sniper” from a script by Jason Hall, based on Chris Kyle’s autobiography about his tour of duty in Iraq and his struggles as a father and husband.

Warner Bros. will expand “American Sniper” into a nationwide release on Jan. 16 — the day after Oscar nominations are announced.
