Box Office Disaster — No One Expected Jessica Chastain’s Gun Control Movie To Flop This Hard [VIDEO]
This past weekend, “Miss Sloane” — starring Jessica Chastain — was released in theaters across the country.
According to Fox News, the film — which premiered in select cities on Thanksgiving — casts Chastain as a no-nonsense D.C. lobbyist who is willing to do whatever it takes to roll back the Second Amendment.
Unfortunately — for both producers and gun control advocates — practically no one showed up to see Chastian’s Golden Globes-nominated performance.
“Miss Sloane” was shown in 1,648 locations over the weekend but only managed to earn a paltry $1.9 million in ticket sales.
The film was only projected to net roughly $5 million at the box office, reports Deadline, yet a poor first weekend sets it well behind the goal of recouping the $13 million production cost.
Despite parroting the gun control narrative, some of Chastain’s prior films have been heavy on gun violence.
