Gun Control Movie ‘Miss Sloane’ Bombs At Box Office

Gun control film Miss Sloane stumbled then collapsed at the box office as EuropaCorp expanded it into 1,648 theaters this weekend, only to take in a reported $1.9 million.
This puts the total domestic intake for Miss Sloane at just under two million dollars, according to Box Office Mojo. Forbes summed it up by saying the movie “bombed” and that it was expanded “with tragic results.”

Miss Sloane stars Jessica Chastain as skilled D.C. lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane, who finds herself taking on the gun lobby in Congress.

Breitbart News previously reported that Miss Sloane was to be another of Hollywood’s many attempts to use the big screen to show Americans in flyover country that gun control is a noble endeavor. The film’s director, John Madden, explained that the film highlighted “the fallacy that any form of gun regulation is a slippery slope to confiscation.”



On the subject of anti-gunners and the entertainment industry:

Anti-gun Spokesman Admits ‘Partnership’ to ‘Influence Hollywood’ on Guns

A spokesman for the anti-gun-rights Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence unintentionally confirmed what many in the gun rights community have long suspected, that Hollywood and gun control proponents cooperate to incorporate a gun control message into entertainment.


The revelation came Monday from the Washington Free Beacon when it reported that the much-anticipated “Miss Sloane,” a movie about a female gun control lobbyist played by Jessica Chastain was something of a box office bomb on its opening weekend. See the trailer here. According to Fox News , its weekend general opening was a box office flop, which may say more about the appeal of a gun control “message” movie than the messenger. The Philadelphia Inquirer says Chastain is “amazing, but the movie’s a mess.”

The anti's just don't get it. That does not shock me, duh, Americans like guns. And dislike being told what to do.

Just my two cents

Paybacks from the NRA is undoubtedly fatal -- as it should be.

The NRA is defending a Constitutional Right -- the 2nd Amendment.
