LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hollywood may have run out of summer hits, but an anti-Obama documentary is helping to fill the gap.

Holdover movies easily topped the weekend box office again, led by Sylvester Stallone’s “The Expendables 2″ at No. 1 for the second-straight weekend with $13.5 million.

The weekend’s new wide releases were overshadowed by “2016: Obama’s America,” which expanded from limited to nationwide release and took in $6.2 million to finish at No. 8.

The documentary is a harsh conservative critique of what the country would look like four years from now if President Barack Obama is re-elected.

“Obama’s America” nearly matched the $6.3 million debut of the No. 7 movie, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s action tale “Premium Rush,” which played in more than twice as many theaters as the Obama documentary.
