Hollywood was devastated by these grim numbers
Hollywood celebrities have made a habit of bashing President Trump.
But their act is wearing thin with Trump supporters and everyday Americans.
And these latest numbers show their constant Trump-bashing is backfiring in a big way.
Movie theater attendance dropped to a 24 year low.
Total inflation adjusted box office revenue was the lowest since 1995.
This is the bread-and-butter of the movie industry as box office revenue is the largest income driver for Hollywood.
The Wrap reports:
The National Alliance of Theater Owners (NATO) announced Wednesday that the national ticket average for 2017 rose 3.7 percent year-over-year to $8.93, up from $8.65 last year.
At that average, the estimated number of movie tickets sold last year is 1.23 billion. While that is only a rough estimate that does not account for the higher ticket prices for premium formats and theaters in more expensive cities like New York and Los Angeles, NATO’s estimate is the lowest since 1993, when “Jurassic Park” was the top grossing film of the year and an estimated 1.24 billion tickets were sold.
President Trump has gotten under the skin of liberal elitist Hollywood actors.
During an interview promoting one of her latest box office flubs, Jennifer Lawrence insinuated that “mother earth” was punishing Americans for electing Trump with Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
But no celebrity has bashed Trump more than Meryl Streep.
Streep went on a six-minute anti-Trump rant while accepting an award at the Golden Globes.
And she’s taken pot shots at Trump in nearly every public interview she’s done since the 2016 campaign.
Yet Streep continuously defended child rapist Roman Polanski and claimed she didn’t know of Harvey Weinstein’s transgressions despite being close with him.
When will these Hollywood celebrities realize talking down to conservative Americans and pushing their radical views results in fewer people watching their movies?
