Ouch! The Numbers Are In From Michael Moore’s Latest Anti-Trump Film’s Opening Weekend, And They’re Not Pretty

Published

on

While the majority of mainstream news outlets have been gushing over Michael Moore’s new anti-Trump film, Fahrenheit 11/9 (although they weren’t all great), ticket buyers weren’t so thrilled.

Perhaps it’s because the film seems to have essentially conducted of a long-form version of everything every single anti-Trump liberal has already said about Trump.

Perhaps it’s because Michael Moore isn’t even trying anymore and simply assumes audiences will show up to see his movie because of his name recognition.

Or perhaps it’s because Trump is the President America elected and many of those who didn’t emphatically support him in 2016 find themselves now, nearly two years later, more appalled by the way the media and entertainment industry has treated him than they are by his policies or character.

Whatever the reas, the film tanked–badly.

The Daily Wire has the story:

Michael Moore’s latest documentary, “Fahrenheit 11/9,” is not doing well at the box office. In its opening weekend, the anti-President Trump movie was set to earn just $3 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

That would put the film at eighth place for the weekend. On Friday, the day it debuted, the movie brought in just $1 million from more than 1,700 screens. The film was projected to haul in $5 million to $8 million.

For comparison, Moore’s biggest hit movie — “Fahrenheit 9/11,” also an anti-Republican president movie — opened in 2004 with a near $24 million haul in its first weekend.

To put it all into perspective, “The House With A Clock In Its Walls,” a kids movie, looked set to haul in $25 million, easily the weekend’s big winner.

While documentaries certainly have their place in the Hollywood cannon, these days, most people probably want to go to the movies to get away from all the noise of the mainstream media complex and Washington circus.

Whether you’re hip to the anti-Trump bias of Hollywood or totally agree with it, perhaps the last thing anyone needed was an entire movie outlining what everyone already knew liberals think about Trump.

STRANGER THAN FICTION: ‘Law and Order’ Mashes Ilhan Omar into Covington Catholic Scandal

This is lazy writing at its very finest.

virtue signaling

Day in and day out, writers in Hollywood work to create arcing storylines and thoughtful dialogue that we may hear passively while we’re cooking dinner. All of the work that goes into weekly television occurs ad nauseam, no matter the reality of the those producing it.  The show must go on, essentially, and there are times in which writers get a little bit lazy. Some of television’s most profound pieces of real estate fall victim to such concerns week after week, and these lazy and uninspired bits often conflate themselves into a loss of viewership.  It is this concern that has Law and Order:  SVU staff worried this week. NBC crime procedural Law & Order: Special Victims Unit featured a “ripped from the headlines” theme in its latest episode, which smeared the Covington Catholic kids by pitting them against an Ilhan Omar-styled character who is portrayed as a hero. The plot centered on a poor, put-upon Islamic city politician being confronted by a red ballcap-wearing crowd of young men who scream at her and taunt her. But the episode also throws in a big dollop of male oppression and lesbianism for good measure, Newsbusters reported. The Law & Order: SVU  episode entitled, “Assumptions,” opens with a pair of teenaged boys running away from a vandalized mosque in which we soon see that Muslim Councilwoman Nahla Nasar (Nazneen Contractor) has been raped. The story, which is an amalgam of two real life American situations, was undoubtedly meant to invoke the emotions of the politically-savvy US populace in order to sell commercials on NBC. This monetization of the American outrage machine is something worth monitoring, especially as we slip closer and closer to the possibility of a constitutional crisis…at least according to the liberal left.

Infotainment Personality from NBC Mocked After Likening Climate Change To…

Here is yet another example of the mainstream media turning to sideshow tactics to keep advertisers happy, while scaring the daylights out of the rest of us.

The American people seem to forget a very salient point regarding the mainstream media, seemingly on a daily basis: It’s all for show. The entirety of the television “news” industry is dependent upon selling commercial advertising space in between salacious segments of shouting, and it shows.  The competition is stiff on cable, too, creating an opportunity for networks to desperately grasp at niche demographics with their coverage. And while it certainly is entertaining, it doesn’t equate to too much else, especially in this digital world where the facts are easily attainable. This reality may be most prevalent in issues that are heavily divided down party lines and, therefore, tend to create the most drama…something that advertisers love. It’s the chasing of this revenue that has led on NBC infotainment personality to take his climate change rhetoric out of this world. An NBC News reporter raised eyebrows and prompted pushback from an MSNBC host after suggesting that climate change is like an alien invasion that is visible to everyone. The reporter, Jacob Ward, made the odd comparison following the release of the United Nations climate change report that claims a number of “transformative changes” will be needed to save nature and humanity from climate change and other threats. What exactly did he say? “Yeah, you know, it really is devastating, Stephanie. I mean, this is how dark the times are in the view of researchers… people are sort of getting ready for the horrors that this report is talking about. So it is dark times, I gotta say,” he told MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle during a Monday show. Ruhle then lamented that “there’s not even a consensus around climate change,” prompting Ward to make the comparison. “I know, I know. I mean, that’s the thing, right? You look at it and you think…
