No one is going to see the climate change film featuring AOC that, not surprisingly, critics love.
Opening weekend for a climate change documentary that included Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., as the film’s most noteworthy protagonist did not make a lot of money, only generating roughly $80 per theatre in ticket sales.
The documentary, titled “To the End” by filmmaker Rachel Lears, was filmed over four years. It chronicles three young female climate activists, and Ocasio-Cortez, while they attempt to pass expansive climate change legislation.
The film has so far received an 83% rating from Rotten Tomatoes, a well-known movie-rating website, but the site’s coinciding audience score has yet to be posted as of Wednesday. One other popular rating site, IMDb, gave the movie a low 2.3/10 rating, however.
Over 100 movie screens had to show this box office bomb that only earned $80 a theater. Not surprisingly, Cortez also acted in the 2019 film Knock Down The House that critics acclaimed but audiences didn’t. This is an example of art imitating life and no doubt AOC won’t be getting offers to act in films shortly after she leaves Congress.
