A Hollywood attempt to preach gun grabbing to Middle America has resulted in a flop of major proportions.
Miss Sloane, the story of a Washington insider lobbyist who badgers Americans about guns and tried to gut the 2nd Amendment, opened to a massive number of empty seats.
The film, which premiered in select cities on Thanksgiving, hit more theaters this past weekend, and it fizzled in its wide expansion, earning $1.9 million from 1,648 locations.
The movie was projected to earn a paltry $5 million at the box office, according to the Los Angeles Times, but so far it’s fallen short.
Despite the absolute rejection of Miss Sloane’s preachy anti-gun politics, the terrible film still garnered award consideration for the star Jessica Chastain.
The role earned the actress a Golden Globe nomination on Monday morning. Since 2012, Chastain has been nominated for four Golden Globes and won once, in 2013, for “Zero Dark Thirty.”
