Over the weekend, Jedediah Bila collected some quotes from individuals who saw “The Undefeated”, and she shared these in a column at the Daily Caller:
This past weekend, Stephen Bannon’s documentary on Sarah Palin, “The Undefeated,” debuted in 10 markets: Atlanta, GA; Houston, TX; Dallas, TX; Phoenix, AZ; Denver, CO;Orlando, FL; Kansas City, MO; Indianapolis, IN; Orange, CA; and Oklahoma City, OK. ARC Entertainment, the distributor of the film, affirmed that “through Saturday night the film had a stronger opening than expected with the large markets trending towards weekend per screen averages above $10,000 driven by multiple sold-out runs. The film had accumulated approximately $5,000 per screen through Saturday night. Unique in the theatrical feature world, The Undefeated was rushed to select digital theatres in only 3 weeks, and was marketed almost entirely through social media and grassroots efforts, with virtually no traditional media spend. With the strong initial showing, the film is going to a wider release footprint later this month, with details being announced soon.”
I reached out to attendees via Facebook and Twitter, inviting them to share their thoughts about this film. Here’s what some of them had to say:
“Saw ‘The Undefeated’ in Grapevine, TX, opening night and it was packed. My husband and I had to sit in the front row of the 9:50 showing. I have mixed emotions. I’m saddened by the vicious attacks (montage was almost hard to watch), maddened that the GOP have perpetuated the smear campaign, but through it all I was inspired. I learned so much about her vast executive experience in AK and would be proud to cast my vote for an amazing American, mother, patriot and leader, Sarah Palin. There was thunderous applause at the end of the movie. We’re ready, Sarah. Game on!” — Marisa Marshall
“I flew from Michigan to Houston to see ‘The Undefeated’ with my daughter and her husband. They were early supporters but have since fallen for that ‘she can’t get elected’ crap. Well, the movie was wonderful. They were thrilled to hear about her record and I am pleased to proclaim they are back! I plan on going again with as many folks as I can to change hearts and minds for Sarah Palin. One thing we know for sure is we can trust Sarah Palin … just have the guts to see ‘The Undefeated’!” — Sue Lynn
“‘The Undefeated’ changes the game for all Americans. To see the cruelty and depth of the progressive mainstream media’s treatment of Sarah Palin liberates you from ever being duped by them again. That awareness made me extremely angry. I am ready to fight the media and on Sarah’s team. More importantly, ‘The Undefeated’ clearly shows Sarah Palin is the model of leadership and character, the kind we desperately need right now in our politicians. I am so impressed with her integrity, management skills and her servant’s heart. You can’t see this movie without hoping she’ll run and having a strong feeling that she ought to be leading this nation to drive the ship of state away from the rocks we are so directly speeding toward. Ms. Palin is being called to the bridge — report for duty!” — Greg Vanderneck
“I drove two hours to see ‘The Undefeated’ in Indy last night with my 21-year-old daughter and 18-year-old son … The film delivered big time. It contrasted the current administration’s failures with Sarah Palin’s common-sense, proven track record of success in political office. The movie built its case layer upon layer (Act I, Act II, Act III) and presented compelling reasons Gov. Palin can run or outrun the big boys, proving she is perfectly suited to take on the biggest challenge of her life.” — Ellen Anderson
