A documentary featuring Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and climate activists pushing the Green New Deal flopped in its opening weekend, taking just $9,667.
That works out as an average of $80 per theater for the movie 'To The End,' according to ticket receipt data published by Box Office Mojo.
'Fighting for change politically requires faith,' says Ocasio-Cortez, who goes on to say tackling climate change is 'the moonshot of our generation' in the movie's trailer.
Turning a profit might be a similar challenge for the documentary, which launched into 120 theaters on Friday
'Filmed over four years of hope and crisis, "To The End" captures the emergence of a new generation of leaders and the movement behind the most sweeping climate change legislation in U.S. history,' says it promotional website.
With AOC now in Congress, it follows her and other campaigners — Green activist Varshini Prakash, climate policy writer Rhiana Gunn-Wright, and political strategist Alexandra Rojas — 'as they grapple with new challenges of leadership and power and work together to defend their generation’s right to a future.'
AOC was among the leaders of an effort to pass a raft of environmental legislation, focused on cutting greenhouse gas emissions, which was dubbed the Green New Deal in an echo of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal.
Their effort failed, with the bill voted out of the Senate on largely part lines before it was even debated

She’s more of a Lucy Ricardo than David Attenborough.
Doesn’t exactly sound like a “date night” movie.
AOC has basically admitted that the whole “climate change” routine is just a vehicle for promoting socialism. You can always cherry pick whatever information you need to claim whatever you want.
It’s not easy selling the Climate Change crapola when we are going to have a high of 15 and a low of zero in a few days here in North Idaho. It’s not even winter yet and we are in the deep-freeze.
I know you’ll be surprised at this, but we are more interested in cheap, plentiful energy to keep our homes warm and bright.
Hope those theaters watched their tip jars closely.
$ 80 average per theatre is like 4-5 people watching the movie.
where’s the ha-ha guy?
I hope she invested a lot of money in that project. Not that being a politician means she won’t get it back again through under the table deals and insider trading.
She would’ve done better with a porn flick.
I was going to go, but The Three Stooges were on at the same time.
When it comes to Movie productions, AOC has great T*ts!!
She should have just shown her boobs.
Or at least an OnlyFans account, LOL
Looks like Oscar material to me. Just like yours, Al. What does she care if it grosses a dime, she’s been paid. Compared to the help she provides the trillion dollar climate hucksters, she’s working for peanuts.
AOC is supposedly a street smart person, who, in effect is just plain dumb.
Especially LOL when you consider the price of movie tickets today!
