Gore's Latest Climate Film Is An Inconvenient Flop

Written by Aly Nielsen

Climate alarmist Al Gore’s second film, An Inconvenient Sequel, failed to heat up the box-office, falling from 16th to 18th over the Aug. 11-13 weekend.

It’s a dramatic fall from glory for the climate alarmist whose first film, An Inconvenient Truth, won several awards including an Oscar and grossed $24 million.

An Inconvenient Sequel, meanwhile, grossed just under $2.3 million in the U.S. since its Aug. 4 release. Worse, after two full weekends at theaters nationwide Gore’s film ranked lower than panned sci-fi flick Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Both Entertainment Weekly and Vanity Fair dubbed Valerian a “mess.” Rotten Tomatoes shows a 57 percent audience approval rating for Valerian compared to An Inconvenient Sequel’s 47 percent.

The film’s poor performance was especially humorous because of Viacom used many platforms to promote the film and the liberal media heaped praise on Gore prior to its release.

“You’re a movie star,” CBS national correspondent Lee Cowan told Gore in a July 16, 2017, CBS Sunday Morning interview. “It’s you and Wonder Woman this summer. It is!”

NBC Today fill-in co-host Willie Geist also fawned over Gore’s film in a two-part July 17,Today interview. Yet, Geist refused to push Gore about the film’s critics.
