The right wing put on absolute media blitz for "An American Carol". They bought lots of ads, especially on sites like the Drudge Report. They also got tons of free media on channels like Fox News.
That was good enough for an opening weekend at #7.
An American Carol brought in $3.8 million.
By comparison, a movie about talking dogs made $29 million.
Carol was shown on 1,639 screens.
Bill Mahers Religulous was on 532 screens. And yet, so far it has made $3.5 million.
