So how’s Michael Moore’s new movie, the Trump-hating, Republican-hating “Fahrenheit 11/9” doing?

Well, the first day’s receipts are in.  And, I think it would be fair to say, you’d expect them to be quite good, since the first few days are when people  really excited to see a movie would be running to the theater.

With that in mind, let’s look at the numbers.

Total receipts for the 1,719 theaters showing “Fahrenheit 11/9″are…$1,055,000.

That is an average of $614 dollars a theater.

Assuming each theater had two showings, and the average ticket price is, say $7 a seat (a major benefit of the doubt for Moore since, where I live,  it’s closer to $11), that means the average theater filled up with, oh, about 44 people.

Call me a cockeyed optimist, but I think it would be fair to say that anyone who showed up a bit late would still have a pretty decent shot at finding a seat.

If that’s what “Fahrenheit 11/9” can muster on opening day, somehow I doubt it’s going to set any box office records when the final tallies are in.

Maybe they should rename him Michael Lesse.

  • The only movie that had a worse box office opening was the animated version of the WIZARD OF OZ. Michael Moron should take his fat face, ugly hat and flapping jowls and ride off into the deep sea.
