Al Gore's Sequal “An Inconvenient Sequel” Still Failing at Box Office

A squeal to an inconvenient truth is not selling well in the market. His new film an inconvenient squeal has made far less than half of Gore's first film.


Remember those heady days when Al Gore won an Oscar for “An Inconvenient Truth”? The climate change movie caught the zeitgeist of the moment in 2006. I gave it a rave review which the producers used on the DVD box. The documentary made $25 million domestically and the same amount abroad.

But sequels, especially with similar titles, can be a problem. So “An Inconvenient Sequel” has been a box office dud so far. After 17 days in release, Gore’s follow up has made just $2 million at the box office. Compare that with $5 million for the original in the same time frame. The sequel has turned out to be very inconvenient at least financially.


Perhaps the reason his film is doing so poorly is that people don't understand that climate change is different than global warming. If it isn't hot outside, people tend to think everything is OK. Or people don't want to see it.


Gore’s heart is in the right place, his hyperbole can hurt him. A mild summer in the Northeast, snow in usually hot places, haven’t helped. People don’t understand that ‘climate change’ means exactly that. Instead, they relate to the term ‘global warming.’ If it’s not 100 degrees outside, the whole thing seems far away.

Would you say that his first movie, an inconvenient truth, was an infomercial?

I don't feel like its science fiction at all. Many people do not. We have the vast majority of climate scientist exceeding the 90% mark saying this is real, and slightly less than 10% say it is not. With that being said, I never watched his first movie, and have no interest in this. As far as people messing the planet up, its a given. Billions of germs polluting and littering all over the earth, in an industrial level. I think people are silly to think that we cant possibly be changing the environment. I don't need to watch a movie to convince me though.

I wish folks would remember what set all this in motion .
The Venus probe. And the confirmation of extreme conditions that may have been caused by greenhouse gases . BTW , that is where the term "greenhouse gases" originated. The presence of CO2. But , some ill - informed folks who spent their days watching Days of Our Lives and All in the Family didnt exactly understand a high amount of other more dangerous gases. Ammonia , etc. And that Venus was like that from the get go
Then the doom porn started. It would eventually lead to a scam that would prevent the Earth from becoming Venus
Seriously that is what is behind the concept of Global Warming today...

I think this sequel demonstrates how far out of touch Gore is. I mean why?
First though it is my remembrance that the term global warming was met with so much resistance by deniers, that the term morphed into something that might be more acceptable, climate change. A broader term if you will.

His first movie was to bring his understanding of climate change to a broad audience. That was done. The message was put out there for all to take in and understand or not. Those who believe, do and those who don't, won't.

Making another movie just to let everyone know just how bad things are getting makes no sense to me. Those who believed the first one will believe the second with little more to go on other than more of the same. Those who didn't see the first one will just skip the second. There really was no reason to see the second one hence, poor attendance.

So basically, to me, it seems that Gore has no idea how to move forward toward a social awareness then he did almost two decades ago.

Your assesment Kurt matches my take on this sequel. Why go see it.

How much work do u think is out there for climate scientists that isn't funded in some way by an organisation that makes money from the climate change idea?

That 97% of climate scientists agree figure that came out years ago is absolute horse poo, that number came from the particular scientists they had in the room at the time or something like that, a very small poll where they all had a vested interest.

What was the last documentary that killed at the box office???

MAYBE inconvenient truth???

I literally can not even name another one that got into mainstream theaters...

It is a documentary and has made more than a few of the hundred million dollar big budget flops..

Plus people steal documentaries later off bootleg sites.. they don't go to theaters..
