Doesn’t it seem like almost all of these Hollywood elitists actually believe they are invincible?
Most of these celebrities spout off hatred about President Trump and they really don’t care if it hurts their career.
And now one of Hollywood’s biggest Trump-hating celebrities’ world was just turned upside down with this news about his career.
Rob Reiner has been making headlines lately.
The director known for such classics as When Harry Met Sally, The Princess Bride, Stand By Me, A Few Good Men and Misery has been bashing President Trump constantly over the last several months.
Since he’s the son of the legendary actor/writer/director Carl Reiner, Rob probably got used to his career always being fruitful due to nepotism.
But now Rob Reiner just had an enormous flop with his latest movie, Shock and Awe.
Shock and Awe is best described as a group of journalists covering George Bush’s planned invasion of Iraq in 2003 who are skeptical of the reports that led to the war in which Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.
It has a novel cast set up for success that includes Woody Harrelson, James Marsden, Tommy Lee Jones, Jessica Biel and Milla Jovovich.
And it grossed an abysmal $41,000 in its first weekend. It also averaged a meager $410 per screen, which made it the 34th most popular film of the weekend.
That is an enormous box office bomb.
But it’s also been happening for over ten years.
In the last decade, Reiner’s directed Shock and Awe, LBJ, Being Charlie, And So It Goes, The Magic of Belle Isle and Flipped.
Have you even heard of one of these movies? You probably haven’t because they all bombed.
That means he’s had six mega flops in a row.
One could argue that Rob Reiner just doesn’t have it anymore. He’s lost a step on his directing touch because the last decade of movies he’s helmed are so far removed from his classics in the 80’s and early 90’s.
Or, you could argue it’s his divisive politics that he spews on Twitter and talk shows, like Real Time w/ Bill Maher, that has ruined his image as a serious filmmaker.
Reiner recently said that Trump supporters were afraid of the “browning of America.” Some of those supporters used to be fans of his and all he does is sit atop his pedestal in his mansion in the Hollywood Hills condescending to working class Americans like he knows more than all of them.
He also spread his liberal propaganda by saying that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s latest indictment against twelve Russian intelligence officers made it “crystal clear the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.”
On Monday, he released a video for his followers to rise up and demand that Trump meet with Mueller.
He’s on a streak right now because his name is in the news constantly.
This could just be a gimmick, or it could be a ploy to plug the hole in his hemorrhaging career.
But if the latter is true, it backfired magnificently.
Maybe he should get back to his roots, make good movies, and stop talking about politics.Because it seems like the only thing he’s good at anymore is complaining.
