Hollywood will never learn. When they use movies as a means to push liberal politics, everyone can see right through it. It doesn’t change anyone’s mind on the issue, it just makes people tune them out. In the case of the gun control movie “Miss Sloane” it looks like that’s just what happened.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Gun Control Thriller ‘Miss Sloane’ Has One of the Worst Opening Weekends Ever
Miss Sloane, the gun control thriller starring Jessica Chastain, over the weekend posted one of the worst performances of the past 35 years for a movie in wide release.
The movie pulled in $ 1,167 on average at the 1,648 theaters across the country it was shown in. It made $ 1,922,300, meaning it was the 11th-highest grossing movie in the country. It is number 79 on Box Office Mojo’s list of Worst Opening Weekend by Per-Theater Average since 1982.
That means Miss Sloane earned less money per theater than Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Shaun the Sheep Movie, Lawnmower Man 2: Beyond Cyberspace, and Gigli.
Industry observers criticized the movie’s performance on Monday. Time said the movie “fizzled in its wide expansion.” Fortune described it as struggling. The Los Angeles Times said Miss Sloane failed to meet “an already lackluster” projection of $ 5 million for the weekend.
This tweet really puts the issue in perspective:
More people bought guns over Black Friday weekend than saw this movie in its opening weekend. https://t.co/LCafCq6xc4
