Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s failure is so bad it may set records.
No one cared about what she had to say.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a disaster that is worse than anything she’s faced before.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has a new climate change documentary out titled, “To the End.”
The movie has done incredibly badly. “To the End,” by director Rachel Lears, debuted over the weekend in 120 theaters and made the grand total of $9,667, according to Box Office Mojo.
Exhibitor Relations Co. (@ERCboxoffice) did the math on the numbers.
“This is it the end, my friend,” they tweeted on Monday once the numbers were in for the weekend showings. “Roadside Attractions’ documentary on climate change, TO THE END, ‘starring’ AOC, was voted out of the box office — just $9,667 in 120 theaters, $81 per. Yes, $81 per.”
“Nobody cares less about climate change than … theatergoers,” they concluded.
It came in at a total of $80.55 per screen.
If ticket prices were an average of $16.25, as they are at Regal Theaters, it’s reasonable to estimate that fewer than 600 people actually went to theaters to see it.
“Stopping the climate crisis is a question of political courage, and the clock is ticking. Over three years of turbulence and crisis, four young women fight for a Green New Deal, and ignite a historic shift in U.S. climate politics,” said the movie’s synopsis for the R-rated documentary.
The movie earned 83% from 18 critics on Rotten Tomatoes, and yes, that means that roughly 3% of people watching the movie were paid to be there.
“‘To the End’ keeps its large canvas entertaining and informative. Even so, it preaches enough to the choir that this documentary can hardly serve as an introduction for those belatedly coming to terms with its central issues,” Variety wrote.
Greg Gutfeld, a host of Fox News’s “The Five,” discussed the movie’s poor performance on Tuesday.
“Who would go see a movie that’s the opposite of entertaining?” he said. “There’s nothing entertaining about that. … But it does show you how great it is to be a progressive in a liberal, biased culture,” he said. “She really doesn’t do her job, right? She makes movies, she goes to galas. She sits for glossy, butt-kissing interviews in GQ and other women’s mags.”
Co-host Jesse Watters said Ocasio-Cortez might be popular in highly liberal areas but that isn’t enough to make a popular movie.
“This is what politicians often get confused about: Just because you’re popular in politics doesn’t mean you’re popular anywhere else. In fact, usually people that can’t do anything anywhere else go into politics to succeed. And she found out that the hard way,” Watters said.
