    Are the good times over for Michael Moore?  Have the ticket-buyers finally sickened of the director of Sicko?  Sure looks that way, based on what Variety is reporting. The films of Michael Moore have been faltering at the box office for several years now.  This weekend, though, the lackluster performance of his latest truth-to-power opus, "Fahrenheit 11/9," was notably dramatic, if not downright stark.

  • Michael Moore’s ‘Fahrenheit 11/9’ falls flat at the box office with dismal $3 million opening

    Michael Moore's latest anti-Republican documentary tanked at the box office compared to his movies from a decade ago, as “Fahrenheit 11/9” barely registered with a $3.1 million take on its first weekend. The title was a play on his 2004 documentary “Fahrenheit 9/11” that sought to expose mishandlings in President George W. Bush’s White House following the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. The latest film, as Fox News previously reported, sought to do the same to President Trump at a key time for the country: the 2018 midterm elections. “Fahrenheit 11/9” took in $3.1 million in 1,719 cinemas — a large debut for...

    [Snip] So, in that sense, it’s no surprise that Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/9 tanked in its whopping 1,719 theater wide release debut. [Snip] folks are even less likely to flock to an openly political documentary, and frankly even those on the left don’t necessarily want to pay to see a 125-minute crash course of the current horrors of the day. I’d gladly pay triple the ticket price to see a version of the movie without you-know-who babbling incoherently. I’d argue that Moore’s motives in making the movie were less about spreading the word through its contents than in using the...
  • ‘Fahrenheit 11/9’ Review: Michael Moore is Mad as Hell and Won’t Take It Anymore (Trump is Hitler)

    You’ll cry laughing at Michael Moore’s new doc Fahrenheit 11/9, an unmissable provocation about the rise and rise of Donald J. Trump that should help get out the vote in November better than any limp recruitment outreach. One of Moore’s best and most incisively funny films — right up there with Roger & Me (1989), Bowling for Columbine (2002) and Sicko (2007) — his latest goes way past taking potshots at the Donald, though it does that with piercing intelligence and wounding wit. Rather, he wants to show us that this celebrity Commander-in-Chief didn’t just fall from the sky. The...

    The “Fahrenheit 11/9” director also said Americans should expect the “evil genius” to be re-elected in 2020. Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore said he believes President Donald Trump either wrote or directed one of his staffers to write the anonymous Op-Ed in The New York Times that described an alleged “resistance” effort within his administration. “Trump or one of his minions wrote it,” Moore told CNN in an interview published Sunday. “He’s the master distractor. He’s the king of the misdirect. If we have learned anything by now, it’s that he does things to get people to turn away.” He continued:...

    "Too many people in the summer of 2016 were so sure Hillary [Clinton] was going to win, saying no one is going to vote for this idiot," Moore said. "He could win again. I operate as if he is a two-term Trump. I have to. If you think any other way you are guaranteeing that whoever is going to run against him will lose." Moore's explanation to the phenomenon of a Trump presidency? "I think the man is an evil genius and he was able to outsmart the smartest person ever to run for president," Moore said. "He figured out...

    FULL TITLE: Michael Moore Thinks Donald Trump Wrote NYTimes Op-Ed Piece: “He’s the master of distraction, he wants us to believe there are adults in the room” Michael Moore made the scary prediction that Donald Trump was “the last president of the United States” in the trailer to his new documentary “Fahrenheit 11/9,” which premiere in New York Thursday evening at Alice Tully Hall. On the red carpet I asked the filmmaker exactly what he meant by that. “It’s that we may not have our United States the way that we knew it. If he’s successful in dismantling our democracy...

    "The pair have a storied bromance, which began when Mr Trudeau visited the White House for a state dinner last year" Even going-for-Trump-jugular Michael Moore realized that anti-gun activist David Hogg got it bass-ackwards by asking Canadians to meddle in American elections. Bass-ackwards because former President Barack Obama got away with meddling in Canada’s 2015 federal election by sending his top campaign team to help Justin Trudeau get elected as Canada’s prime minister.

    Full title: Michael Moore's ex-wife Kathleen SUES the filmmaker and claims he duped her out of movie profits - as her lawyer says she was the 'driving force' of his films Kathleen Glynn filed a lawsuit against fellow filmmaker ex-husband Michael Moore, and claims that he has not paid her portion of their mutual movie profits. Page Six reported Thursday the lawsuit was newly filed in Manhattan Supreme Court this week. Glynn's lawyer claimed in court documents that Gylnn was supposed to receive four percent of total revenue from their partnership. Page Six reported that Glynn only got $541 in...

    There are many theories as to why Donald Trump ran for president. Some say it was because Seth Meyers and President Obama made fun of him at the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, others say it was to further his business, and this week, Michael Moore told The Hollywood Reporter that Trump ran for president because of former No Doubt front woman and The Voice judge Gwen Stefani. According to THR, Moore suggested that Trump was inspired to announce his run for president after learning that Stefani was earning higher performance fees from NBC as a judge on The Voice...

    I can say with certainty, my decision to journey back into journalism was made after the FBI pointed guns at the heads of my wife and children. I knew that first morning (the FBI actually raided my home twice and pointed guns at my family twice) when federal agents raided our home one definitive thing was going to unfold: These bastards — and their bosses — were going to pay for violating my family. My kids. My home. One way or the other, I would have the last word. As I have throughout my life and career. And I was...

Moore’s counting on cashing in on a pandemic Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) and making box office millions by linking President Donald Trump’s America with neo-nazi riots and school shootings.

    For at least the last 10 million years every yeast cell of the sort used to make beer or bread has had 16 chromosomes. But now—thanks to CRISPR technology and some DNA tinkerers in China—there are living yeast with just one. Genome organizer: We humans have our genes arranged on 46 chromosomes, yeast use 16, and there’s even a fern plant with 1260 of them. That’s just the way it is. And no one is quite sure why. The big one: Do we really need so many chromosomes? That’s what Zhogjun Qin and colleagues at the Key Laboratory of Synthetic...

    Filmmaker Michael Moore is producing a new documentary. Fahrenheit 11/9, which apparently is a clever reversal of the name of his previous film, is of course about President Trump. And according to Moore, it's going to be a blockbuster and Trump is going to “rue the day” he ever met the filmmaker (their paths used to cross in New York.) But before he starts attacking the president, Mr. Moore has some Fake News of his own I’d like him to address. I'm not talking about his opinions, which are often objectionable but because they are opinions can’t be proven as...

    A Long Island man was arrested Friday for threatening to kill supporters of President Donald Trump and Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin — then nearly hitting a Zeldin campaign staffer with his car, according to Suffolk County police. It was the latest in a string of attacks against the administration and its allies. Martin Astrof, 75, of Nesconset, “became irate” at the Suffolk County campaign headquarters of Rep. Lee Zeldin at 11:15 a.m. Friday, local police said. He threatened to kill a campaign worker, as well as other Zeldin and Trump supporters — then “backed his car up in an aggressive...

    Hollywood stars took to social media to send messages of doom, gloom, and resistance to President Donald Trump in honor of Independence Day. “To every country on the 4th of July. We’re sorry about our president. He doesn’t reflect all of our views — and we hope you know that the majority of us are ashamed,” wrote former Netflix talk show host Chelsea Handler. “We will rally each other and come back to the world one step at a time. #novemberiscoming #alsosorryabouthotdogs.” Left-wing documentary filmmaker Michael Moore offered a politically-charged message to his six million Twitter followers, “Happy Resistance Day!...
