Dinesh D’Souza’s ‘America’ Slams Google Again Over Missing Search Results

Dinesh D’Souza’s ‘America’ Slams Google Again Over Missing Search ResultsDinesh D’Souza and the team behind the recently released documentary America: Imagine The World Without Her still want to know why Google won’t display the show times for their movie. Earlier this week, lawyers for the conservative author/filmmaker sent a second letter to the tech giant’s chief legal officer David Drummond trying to get the situation resolved, I’ve learned. The July 16 letter from Sheppard, Mullin attorney Kelly Crabb requested “that Google correctly display information for America: Imagine The World Without Her in the same way it displays information for other movies currently in theaters.”

americaYou’d think that would be a simple enough request for one of the world’s top search engines. But in this case, you’d be wrong. “I don’t know what the point of a search engine is if people can’t access the information they’re looking for,” a frustrated D’Souza told me today. In addition to no showtimes listed, no click-through poster for the pic appears in the Google banner search result — though 2004′s Team America, Fox’s The Dawn Of The Planet Of The ApesTransformers: Age Of Extinction, Disney/Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the as-yet-unreleased The Avengers: Age Of Ultron do.

Hot July 4 Clip: Dinesh D’Souza Docu ‘America’ On Abraham Lincoln

By | Friday July 4, 2014 @ 6:53pm PDT

Hot July 4 Clip: Dinesh D’Souza Docu ‘America’ On Abraham LincolnIf your last film was the second-highest-grossing political documentary of all time, you need to think big with your follow-up. Dinesh D’Souza and his America co-director John Sullivan have certainly tried to do that. The team behind 2012′s 2016: Obama’s America asked Hillary Clinton to appear in their just released docu but she turned them down. They did get Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul and, as this clip we’ve got shows, they have an appearance from Abraham Lincoln – well, reenactments of the 16th President’s career and the terrible Civil War that defined his term and so much of America’s history since. “For me Lincoln embodies that philosophical statesmanship and practical wisdom that represents the highest achievement of a leader,” D’Souza told me today about why he wanted Honest Able depicted in the pic.

Since its initial release in Atlanta and Houston on June 28, America went wide on July 2 and jumped to 1105 screens. Sources tell me the Lionsgate distributed docu, which got an impressive A+ CinemaScore result, is doing brisk business in Southern California, the Inland Empire, Florida, Arizona and Texas. Check out the Lincoln clip, portions of which were first unveiled tonight on Fox News Channel’s The Kelly File, here:

Hot Clip: Dinesh D’Souza’s ‘America’ On Life & Death Of Aaron SwartzEXCLUSIVE: Hillary Clinton may have turned down Dinesh D’Souza and the producers of the upcoming docu America but fellow potential 2016 Presidential hopeful Sen. Rand Paul answered the call. Unlike the former Secretary of State, the Kentucky Republican appears in the follow-up to 2012’s 2016: Obama’s America, the second-highest-grossing political documentary of all time. “We wanted to have several of the leading contenders for 2016 be a part of the conversation,” producer Gerald Molen told me. “So we invited several leaders including Hillary Clinton and Rand Paul.”

In this clip from the John Sullivan co-directed pic, which comes out later this week in Atlanta and Houston and then goes wide on July 2, Rand joins D’Souza slamming the government’s relentless legal battle against Aaron Swartz:

Hot Clip: Dinesh D’Souza’s ‘America’

AmericaEXCLUSIVE: Co-director and host Dinesh D’Souza could face jail time after pleading guilty today to making illegal campaign contributions. But that will not stop his upcoming documentary America: Imagine A World Without Her from hitting the big screen in limited release next month and going wide July 4. A follow-up to 2012’s 2016: Obama’s America, the second-highest-grossing political documentary of all time, the John Sullivan-directed America seeks to respond to those who say the country’s “greatness is based on theft, plunder and oppression,” according to D’Souza. In this clip shot near Tampa, FL, D’Souza goes the re-creation route to show Christopher Columbus discovering America — a fact that a Native American activist tells D’Souza she wishes never occurred.

dineshUPDATE: Lionsgate has confirmed it is in talks to buy U.S. rights to the docu America: Imagine A World Without Her, which Dinesh D’Souza and John Sullivan wrote and co-directed, with Gerald R. Molen producing. While word from the filmmakers was the film would be released July 4, Lionsgate will put it in limited release June 27 and open wide July 2. According to Lionsgate, D’Souza “journeys to discover what has made America great and its impact on the world. D’Souza argues that American ideals and patriotism should not be things we shy away from. He defends not an idealized America, but America as it really is, and measures itself not against a utopian ideal, but against the rest of the world.” Lionsgate handled home entertainment on 2016: Obama’s AmericaWill this have the flash and controversy of the Obama movie? It will certainly get more distribution backing than the last pic did, even if the premise is more of a think tank exercise than White House bashing.

Having made the second-highest-grossing political documentary of all time, the team behind 2016: Obama’s America is now, as promised, following up with America. Sending up some fireworks of his own to rival the ones 2016 generated, producer-writer and kind-of host Dinesh D’Souza says of his new docu, “We answer the central moral challenge of America’s critics, which is that America’s greatness is based on theft, plunder and oppression.” Listen for other red-button phrases from interviewees describing the USA as “the new evil empire” and a “predatory colonial power” as well as referring to Mount Rushmore as “a symbol of oppression and genocide to our people.” Director John Sullivan’s film comes out two years after its predecessors — hitting theaters on the Fourth of July. Here’s the new trailer. which was first unveiled tonight on Fox News Channel’s The Kelly File:
