Accuracy in Media

Despite being heavily advertised, the gun control thriller “Miss Sloane” has been declared a flop after just two weeks in release.

The movie, which stars Jessica Chastain as a lawyer fighting for universal background checks, opened in a handful of cities on Thanksgiving, was then released in 1,648 theaters last weekend, and only sold $1.9 million in tickets, placing the film in eleventh place for the week.

According to Deadline, the film, which cost $13 million to produce, is expected to gross just $5 million, making it one of the larger flops of the year given the star power of Chastain.

“Miss Sloane” is an example of Hollywood betting on what seemed to them like a sure thing—the election of Hillary Clinton to help make the film a success, given her support of gun control—only to see the movie go down in flames, just like Clinton’s presidential hopes.

    Clinton a Sloane both flopped. Win-win!

    I love Jessica Chastain. I hate the liberal agenda. Enough of the liberal propaganda films. How about you stop trying to force your politics down our throats and just make movies for entertainment? Enough of white corporate types as the bad guys. How about Jessica in a Christmas movie? With her gorgeous red hair, Jessica is a perfect choice for Christmas.
