EAT YOUR HEART OUT, LEFTIST PIG HOLLYWOOD - "AMERICAN SNIPER" IS LEADER OF THE PACK!

“American Sniper” is filling theaters across the nation — and destroying old records.
The Sunday estimate of its debut weekend haul: $90.2 million.
 
 
Here’s a look at the records that the Academy Award-nominated “American Sniper” already broke — or could break when final figures are released Monday:
  1. Biggest January debut of all time.
    As Business Insider noted, “American Sniper” has easily outdone the previous record-holder, 2014′s “Ride Along,” which brought in $41.5 million its opening weekend.
  2. Biggest debut ever for an R-rated movie.
    “The Matrix Reloaded” earned $91.7 million on its opening weekend back in 2003. When final figures are released Monday, “American Sniper” could surpass the sci-fi sequel.
  3. Biggest Clint Eastwood opening.
    The Eastwood-directed “American Sniper” easily shot past the $29.5 million debut of 2008′s “Gran Turino.”
  4. Biggest debut for an Oscar Best Picture nominee.
    That’s right — even such blockbusters as “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” (debut $72.6 million) and “Titanic” (debut $28.6 million) can’t compare to the $90+ million haul of “American Sniper.”
