Hollyweird got scarred badly. They invested much in their fiction movie called, Obama the President. The film was a market disaster of epic proportions.
The trailer tested well. However the film fell short at the end.
Hollyweird tried something new. The not so happy ending. Marketers were told that America was ready for the letdown, and they could spin it in the end.
However, as in The Empire Strikes Back, the Death Star exploded. So did Obama.
Was Hillary Clinton was caught too close to the blast zone?
Who’s to say? I’m reminded of that Tyler Perry classic, “I Can Do Bad All by Myself,” as that could have been Hillary Clinton’s campaign slogan. Nevertheless, Obama exploding the Fed didn’t help Hillary Clinton’s cause either.
Strangely, in the wake of Meryl Streep and the screed of many other detached prima donnas there may exists sanity. Zoe Saldana for one, has changed her tune about President-elect Trump:
Hollywood actors were “bullies” toward President-elect Donald Trump — and that treatment helped the Republican win the November election, “Star Trek” actress Zoe Saldana said in an interview.
“We got cocky and became arrogant and we also became bullies,” Saldana, 38, whose latest movie is “Live by Night” with Ben Affleck, told Agence France-Presse on Friday.
“We were trying to single out a man for all these things he was doing wrong,” she added, “and that created empathy in a big group of people in America that felt bad for him and that are believing in his promises.”
Saldana, who supported Democrat Hillary Clinton, said that the time had come to move forward from the election.
“I’m learning from [Trump’s victory] with a lot of humility,” she said. “If we have people continue to be strong and educate ourselves and stand by equal rights and treat everyone with respect, we won’t go back to those times.”
Actress Nichole Kidman chimed in on the election of Trump. She told the BBC this week that Americans needed to get behind Trump:
“I just say he’s now elected and we as a country need to support whoever’s the president because that’s what the country’s based on…However that happened, he’s there, and let’s go.”
When will Hollyweirdos admit their delusion?
The 2017 Martin Luther King holiday will go down in history as the weekend when three high-profile studio movies bombed, including Martin Scorsese’s Silence and Ben Affleck’s Live by Night.
Will 2017 will be the year Conservative America teaches Hollyweird a lesson?
Live by Night earned $2.9 million Friday from 2,822 theaters for a projected four-day holiday gross of $6 million-$7 million. That’s bleak news for Affleck and Warner Bros., which spent a net $65 million to make the period gangster movie (tax incentives and rebates brought the budget down from $90 million). Live by Night, which first opened in select theaters over the year-end holidays, looks to come in No. 8 after poor reviews and a B CinemaScore.
