I'm not crisp on my numbers but by the third week of its release, American Sniper will outdraw BH6. I think it is already more profitable in its week #2.

My point?

BH6 is what you get when a movie is made by marketers capable of only making watered down PC safe choices.

Compare that with Sniper, which was made on a meagre budget, had a jostled development (Spielberg was set to direct but couldn't make it work) and given a weak release date (it wasn't even the only war film in theaters) and you get a sense of what real filmmaking is about.

[My thoughts on Sniper are irrelevant -- but I'll say that I don't think I'll be seeing it in a theatre.]
