We regret being the bearers of bad news. Michael Moore’s latest “documentary” died a quick, but painful death this weekend. Virtually no one was with it when it expired.
Total box office take for Capitalism’s opening Friday, Saturday and Sunday was a mere $4,850,000. That puts it in seventh place for the weekend, nestled between a movie called “Whip It” in sixth place and the latest remake of “Fame” in eighth. It was the fat filmmaker’s worst opening since 2002’s Bowling for Columbine.
By way of comparison, a comedy-horror film called “Zombieland” ended up in the top position with $25,000,000.
One of the beauties of capitalism (with a lower case “c”) is that people have the right to reject Capitalism (with a capital “C”). And they did.
