Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 11/9” Flops in Box Office Opening Night

Published

According to the Hollywood Reporter, leftist activist Michael Moore’s newest film, an anti-Trump flick, flopped on its opening night in the box office Friday.

“Unless traffic picks up, Fahrenheit 11/9  is headed for an eighth-place finish with $3 million-debut from 1,719 theaters (pre-release tracking had suggested at least $5 million-$6 million),” the report said.

This is a far cry from Moore’s previous films, suggesting that the public might be growing wary of the rabid leftist filmmaker.

“In 2004, Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11 debuted to a record-breaking $23.9 million from 868 locations,” the report continued. “Otherwise, his films, similar to other political or specialized docs, have launched first in select theaters before expanding their footprint in order to capitalize on word of mouth.”

The film debuted at the Toronto film festival (fitting) and paints reportedly paints President Donald J. Trump as an authoritarian dictator akin to Adolf Hitler. With the originality, it is easy to see why Moore’s film is not flourishing.

Moore bowed down to his progressive heroes in Canada, bashing the United States as a “follower” on the world stage.

“One of the good things about us is we eventually come around,” he said. “The problem is we are slow learners. Look at all these little things you guys [Canadians] do first. Whether it’s gay marriage or marijuana or whatever … we will follow you. Eventually. But it’s got to be frustrating to look at it from afar, and to see how long it takes us.”
