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.

Fox News Employees Resign Over Tucker Carlson’s Latest Jan 6 Series

The pair were incensed at Carlson’s claims.

Fox News

Tucker Carlson is no stranger to controversy, having helmed one of the most popular television shows in the mainstream media, but his latest look at the events of January 6th appears to have irked some at Fox News.

Carlson’s “Patriot Purge” series examines the pervasive theory that the event itself was a “false flag” attack, carried out by the enemies of American conservatism, in an effort to vilify those who identify as right-of-center.

The premise did not sit well with at least two of Fox News’ longtime employees.

Fox News contributors Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes have resigned following the release of Tucker Carlson’s documentary on the January 6 Capitol insurrection, “Patriot Purge,” citing concerns about the documentary’s potential to incite violence and the cable news outlet’s direction of coverage in the post-Trump era, The New York Times reported.

Goldberg and Hayes joined Fox News as contributors in early 2009 while also working for conservative political magazines. In 2019, they worked together to found The Dispatch, a conservative online publication with nearly 30,000 paying subscribers, according to The New York Times.

The pair believed that Carlson’s docu-series was inherently “dangerous”.

“This is not happening. And we think it’s dangerous to pretend it is. If a person with such a platform shares such misinformation loud enough and long enough, there are Americans who will believe — and act upon — it,” Goldberg and Hayes said in a statement. “This isn’t theoretical. This is what actually happened on January 6, 2021.”

The news comes just days after another Fox News personality, legendary journalist Geraldo Rivera, spoke out about the content of “Patriot Purge”, stating bluntly that he found the allegations of a false flag attack to be “bulls***”.
