Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s new climate change documentary, “To The End,” reportedly bombed at the box office.

The documentary focused on the efforts of AOC and three other climate activists “as they grapple with new challenges of leadership and power and work together to defend their generation’s right to a future,” according to a summary of the film on Bow Tie Cinemas. “To the End” reeled in a total of $80 per theater after debuting on 120 screens Dec. 9, Hollywood In Toto reported.

The film made less than $10,000 at the box office, raking in $9,667 in all the theaters combined, according to Hollywood In Toto.

Aside from Ocasio-Cortez, the documentary follows activist Varshini Prakash, climate policy writer Rhiana Gunn-Wright and political strategist Alexandra Rojas in their attempt to pass climate legislation, according to Bow Tie Cinemas. The film has an 83% “fresh” critic score on Rotten Tomatoes and lacks an audience score. (RELATED: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Says ‘People Are Going To Die’ If Climate Change Isn’t Addressed)

A Dec. 8 review conducted by The New York Times (NYT) praised the documentary for Ocasio-Cortez’s “canny political strategy” to promote change on the climate.

“Representative Ocasio-Cortez offers the best onscreen antidote to despair — she’s funny, a canny political strategy,” NYT’s Teo Bugbee wrote.

“‘To the End’ is set to ignite more Americans to take action,” Nick Allen wrote in a review of the film on, a movie criticism and commentary outlet.

The documentary was created by Rachel Lears and Robin Blotnick, who also made the 2019 documentary “Knock Down the House,” Fox News reported. The previous film revolved around the 2018 primary campaigns of Ocasio-Cortez, Cori Bush, Paula Jean Swearengin and Amy Vilela.
