Al Gore climate change sequel bombs at box office
Al Gore’s climate change sequel to “An Inconvenient Truth” finished 15th at the box office this weekend despite heavy national promotion from the former vice president and environmentalist.
“An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” is a follow-up to the Academy Award-winning documentary “An Inconvenient Truth,” which generated nearly $50 million at the box office in 2006.
“An Inconvenient Sequel” has earned about $900,000, according to Box Office Mojo.
The documentary is now in its second week in cinemas after opening in New York and Los Angeles on the weekend of July 28.
Gore has done dozens of interviews to promote the movie over the past three weeks, including appearances on national programs like “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert, “NBC Nightly News” with Lester Holt and “The Daily Show” with Trevor Noah.
