Death of a Nation: Dinesh D’Souza’s Docu–Artistic and Commercial Flop

Dinesh D’Souza’s latest documentary, Death of a Nation, received a poor response from moviegoers.

It is the lowest wide release launch to date for the right-wing conservative filmmaker.

Death of a Nation made $2.3 million when it opened on 1,032 screens, averaging a tepid $2,248 per theater.

The documentary explores fascism and white supremacy and compares President Donald Trump to Abraham Lincoln.

It’s the first political documentary to bow nationwide since Ben Stein’s “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed” debuted 10 years ago.

D’Souza’s previous titles all bowed in limited release before expanding.
