Fat Boy Michael Moore’s anti-Trump movie bombs at box office

Rate this post


From Inquisitr: Michael Moore’s latest documentary, Fahrenheit 11/9, is winning rave reviews but is tanking at the box office, Forbes is reporting.

Styled as a sort-of sequel to Moore’s groundbreaking 2004 documentary Fahrenheit 9/11, which explores the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks and, specifically, the George W. Bush administration and the Iraq War, Fahrenheit 11/9 opened on under 1,000 screens nationwide (generally typical for documentaries). All told, the movie brought in $1.051 million on Friday, and Forbes writer Scott Mendelson expects it to close out the weekend with around $3 million in ticket sales. That works out to a per-screen average of under $2,000 – nothing short of dismal.

To be fair, says Mendelson, documentaries aren’t generally geared for wide release and boffo box office (excluding Disney nature documentaries, that is). Rather, they’re intended mostly for the on-demand and home-viewing market, once their theatrical run has ended.

Basically, says Mendelson, nobody wants to pay theater prices to see a two-hour-plus movie about a wide variety of depressing topics- the “horrors of the day,” as he calls it.

In the Fahrenheit 11/9, Moore takes aim at Trump and his administration, repeating allegations that Trump refused to rent to black people; that he called for the execution of the Central Park Five (a group of minority youths accused of raping a white woman); Trump’s “birtherism” (that is, his repeated claims that Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States); and a host of other controversies surrounding the 45th president.

  1. That it took in any money at all should remind us that there is still that element out there that has been infected with TDS. And they vote. And their vote counts & cancels out one conservative vote. So vote we must. Every last conservative needs to get out and vote. Take your parents. Take your voting age kids. Make sure your friends and relatives are registered and intend to vote. Use absentee ballots if you can’t make it to the polls. The blue wave needs be swallowed up by the RED TSUNAMI.

  2. HA HA HA HA HA!

  3. Sign letter “L” in his case stands for “Loser” and he is a big one!

  4. He is such a puke-plus I am so sick of them bringing up the “birtherism” bs-POTUS didn’t start that Killiary did when she was running against Obummer. They are such liars.

    • Still, all ignoring the just as relevant fact that a “Natural born” U.S. citizen can not be born of a foreign parent. In their arrogance, they scoffed at the true comprehending U.S. citizens by blatantly claiming his birth to a foreign father on his multiple examples of his proven forged and computer generated birth certificates.

      Only the ignorant, traitorous liars, or cowards,….referred to obama as president.

  5. Why does he always look like he just rolled in lard? I’ll be you could get cooties just being near him.

  6. Just another undergraduate of The Franklin School. A fat greasy nihilist. The one saving grace is that the joke’s on them.

  7. Not to worry: Maybe Moore can team up with Tess Holliday—he’s an earth sign, Tess Holliday is a water sign. Together they can make mud!

  8. So when are the libs going to catch on to his “shtick” ? He has been wearing the same ensemble for how many years now? The exact same attire look, so he can pass himself off as an “average Joe” even though he is a liberal elitist snob who happens to be extremely un-attractive. He makes my stomach turn when I look at that glutenous pig!

  9. I thought he was the male equivalent to Rosie. He’s the classic rich communist. Well, he may be a bit poorer now judging from his latest effort. Maybe Maoism doesn’t sell. It isn’t particularly funny and neither is he.

    I rather think he sees himself as a fat Ghandi from Michigan.

  10. Canada awaits, blubber butt.

  11. He’s holding up his middle initial, Michael “Lardo” Moore. Doesn’t that pic resemble fat Alfred E. Newman from Mad Magazine?

  12. Betcha fat boy’s bed is dented in the middle, that lard is impossible to hold, and his fat ass must be like Swiss cheese. Moore the cellulite poster boy, Hahahaha
