So it appears the director was smart enough to know that to label this a 'gun control' film would guarantee it not being released anywhere. My local theatre gave it about half a dozen showings (that's showings, not number of screens it was playing on) over the weekend. Looking forward to seeing the opening weekend numbers for it.
Numerous sites have talked about the soon to be bomb that is the anti-gun 'Ms. Sloan' movie. Some of it has been chuckling about this bit from WaPo:
“We didn’t offer the script to the Brady Campaign, we didn’t offer the script to any Second Amendment groups,” director John Madden said when I asked if he had consulted with the NRA or other gun rights groups when making the film. “We didn’t want the film being adopted by one side or the other of the argument, because it isn’t a polemic. … I don’t think — the film is not political in its intent. It’s political in its milieu and it’s political in its, you know, the background of the story. But it’s more about political process to me.”Well lookee what the Brady Campaign just put out in an email:
Miss Sloane;hits theaters today. On Monday we'll be hosting a special Facebook live event at 12:30 PM Eastern/9:30 AM Pacific to talk about Brady's contributions to the film and see how the made for screen version of gun violence prevention lobbying measures up to the real deal. Have questions you'd like to ask? Submit them in advance on our Facebook page.
Maybe they should have 'consulted' each other to keep their lies straight.
