America isn’t a one-weekend wonder.

The new docudrama, from the team behind 2016: Obama’s America, earned an A+ rating from CinemaScore during its debut weekend July 4-6.

Today, Box Office Mojo said the film enjoyed a “fantastic” second weekend.

Dinesh D’Souza’s America (2014) had a fantastic hold this weekend. The documentary eased 11 percent to $2.45 million; to date, its earned $8.3 million.

The film scored the fifth highest per-screen average of any movie over the weekend, and it unseated Michael Moore’s Roger & Me on the list of top grossing political documentaries in just two weekends. America currently holds the seventh slot in that category.

Dinesh D’Souza’s book of the same name also is enjoying a blast of synergy. It’s currently the top-selling book at online powerhouse Amazon.com.

The movie takes on liberal arguments against both the country’s earliest years and its history of so-called imperialism.

“America loves America and I couldn’t be more proud or happy about it,” declared producer Gerald Molen said in a statement. “We look forward to another great week at the box office as Americans continue to discover this beautiful film.”
