Menendez brothers’ docudrama ‘The Menendez Murders’ is the most watched documentary of the year, earning an audience of more than 200 million people around the world.
It premiered on Sept. 17 and is now the No. 1 most watched movie of all time, beating out films from the likes of the HBO series ‘Game of Thrones’ and the Academy Awards.
The documentary, which has grossed more than $100 million at the box office, features interviews with the families of the slain New Jersey senator, along with footage of their relatives and family members’ reactions to the crime.
Menendez’s brother, the current governor of New Jersey, Robert Menendez, also appeared in the film.
He said in a statement that he “absolutely” agrees with the men’s decision to speak out against the corruption.
“The Menesons have made an extraordinary, historic, courageous and courageous act of self-determination,” Robert Menelles said in the statement.
“I am humbled to have become a part of the documentary, and I am deeply moved by their courageous act and by their courage to stand up against the corrupt, the dishonest, and the greedy in Washington.”
The Meneses have been a constant presence in the news as they have campaigned for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in the presidential race.
But the family’s decision on how to fight back against corruption has taken a different turn after the death of the brothers in the October 2016 bombing of a government plane.
Robert Menenes told reporters after the bombing that his brother was a “real man” who “was a real fighter” and was “the most honest person I know.”
The brothers, who also were in the running to be the next vice president, also have been vocal supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
But on Oct. 11, 2016, they were both killed in a crash that police have blamed on a rogue drone.
Robert’s brother died on Oct., 16.
The Menendez family is fighting for the release of the full autopsy report into the crash, which was conducted by the New Jersey State Police, and for the return of the remains of Robert and Menendez.
A year later, the investigation was suspended amid a federal lawsuit over whether it should have been done at all.
In the meantime, the Menesens are fighting for justice, as they say they have been ignored by the media and politicians.
Robert said in an interview that he and his brother had a “very, very deep-seated, deeply-held, very important, deeply personal relationship” and that they have never been able to get the facts out.
He also said he is “not surprised” by the Menendez murder.
“When I talk about that, I’m not surprised,” Robert said.
“There is a pattern of corruption.”
