There is nothing better than seeing a propaganda film fail miserably in the box office. Especially when it brutally attacks the second amendment. This is a positive sign for America. Hollywood should take the hint.
Through the weekend, the anti-Second Amendment movie made less than $2 million at more than 1,600 different theater locations nationwide. That meant the movie made just over $1,100 at each theatre, making it the 75th-worst opening for a major production since 1982, according to Box Office Mojo.
The movie follows a powerhouse Washington lobbyist, played by actress Jessica Chastain, who makes it her personal mission to work with the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence to pass new gun control legislation despite massive pushback from the “gun lobby” and what the movie portrays as corrupt, pro-Second Amendment politicians.
Still, the movie currently has a 69 percent fresh rating on movie review website Rotten Tomatoes, despite the wide-range of mixed reviews.
“EuropaCorp expanded the terrific Jessica Chastain vehicle Miss Sloane into 1,648 theaters over the weekend, with just tragic results,” wrote Scott Mendelson at Forbes, reviewing last weekend’s opening movies. “Unless Jessica Chastain ends up with a Golden Globe nomination and/or an Oscar nomination in a robustly crowded ‘Best Actress’ field, this one is finished.”
According to the Washington Free Beacon, the real-life Brady Campaign — which really does work to curb Second Amendment rights — helped consult on the film and plans to do so with future movie and TV productions in order to advance their gun control agenda.
“Miss Sloane marks another chapter in Brady’s partnership with Hollywood to integrate the realities of gun violence into entertainment,” Brendan Kelly, the Brady Campaign’s press secretary, told the Free Beacon.
