Documentary Starring AOC Totally Bombs Makes Under $10,000
Socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) was widely featured in a climate change documentary that debuted over the weekend on 120 screens and quickly flopped, grossing less than $10,000.
The derisory figures for Until the end come despite favorable reviews and a summary that pushes a sense of urgency.
“Stopping the climate crisis is a matter of political courage, and the clock is ticking,” reads Box Office Mojo. “During three years of turmoil and crisis, four young women are fighting for a Green New Deal and sparking historic change in American climate policy.”
A countdown and a “historic” fight weren’t enough to draw people into theaters. The film only made $9,667 in its opening weekend.
For those not into the math, that comes out to $80.56 per screen. That’s about six or seven tickets per theater depending on where you saw it and the ticket price there.

AOC Movie Flops
Perhaps the problem is that AOC’s film doesn’t have a happy ending.

The Daily Mail says the documentary follows “her (AOC) and other activists…as they grapple with new challenges of leadership and power and work together to defend their generation’s right to a future”.
This fight involves the Green New Deal, a far-left socialist mess designed to stifle ingenuity and technological progress by pursuing exclusively green paths to power the country.
“Their effort failed,” writes the Daily Mail, “the bill was defeated by the Senate on largely partial lines before it was even debated.”
Who wants to spend an hour and a half watching a group of people fail in their ultimate goal?
It’s no surprise that AOC’s climate change documentary was bombed. Who was it for? True believers think they already know everything and skeptics are not interested. In addition, the subject market is a bit saturated.

Not his first film
If only more people wanted to date her, surely AOC’s movie would have scored higher at the box office.
$80 per screen.
Even with a review by film critic Nick Allen who said Until the end is “inspiring to see” and is about “to inspire more Americans to take action.”
AOC has 13 million Twitter followers but was unable to sell $10,000 worth of tickets for his film. Weird.

This wasn’t the first time AOC had been featured in a documentary. It was followed in another film by the same director titled Knock down the housewhich told the story of the 2018 midterms and his shocking rise in Congress, along with other members of the far-left team.

And maybe it wasn’t her worse effort. Feast your eyes on this crazy bat*** short she narrated in 2019 extolling the virtues of the Green New Deal, reminding viewers that the the world will end in 12 years, and comparing the fight against climate change to the Second World War.
Climate change is here + we have a deadline: 12 years to halve emissions.
A #GreenNewDeal is our blueprint for a world and a future worth fighting for.
How did we come here?
What’s at stake?
And where are we going?

In this film, AOC promotes a plan to renovate every building in America and reminds everyone that we only have 12 years to “change everything”.
Now, of course, we’ve gone down to 9 years.
The film included illustrations of windmills on the White House lawn and depicted a scenario in which Miami is hit by a hurricane in the near future, submerging the city “under water for the last time”.
As for Until the endAOC can rest easy knowing that there have been positive comments, not only from critics, but also from those who have at least watched the trailer.
“The funniest movie of the year” a viewer wrote.
Another added: “This movie deserves the Oscar for ‘Best Woke Documentary’.”
Go read the trailer reviews. They are hilarious. In fact, if you only screened people reading reviews on AOC’s film, you’d probably make over $10,000.
