First Man tanked at the box office, coming in well below expectations, with just a $16.2 million opening weekend.

At worst, the story of Neil Armstrong’s historic trip to the moon was projected to do much better, anywhere between $19 million and $21 million. Keep in mind, though, that those projections are usually downplayed as a means to save face and to inspire free publicity when a film over-performs.

The article goes on to state the following:

In other words, $16 million is a catastrophe for a movie that probably cost $100 million to $125 million to produce and publicize.

The film was heavily criticized during its promo opening when audiences learned that the film did not include Neil Armstrong planting the American flag into the moon.

    Good for true Americans letting hollyweird know we dtand for OUR FLAG! Had lied Ryan Gosling until his remarks about deleting anything about the flag. He can go pound salt with the rest of them. I need my money for me. 👍👍👍

    My family always went to the movies until about summer ‘16. The last Star Wars movie was the nail in the coffin. All media these days are pushing leftists BS down our throughts… why pay for that? I just went back in time to watch all the good movies I missed over the years at Home.

    I didn’t care for the original movie they made in the late 60’s. I’m positive I wouldn’t like this remake. Not planting the American Flag because the Canadian didn’t think it was appropriate and then the studio to go along with it. Just stick with the attempt to entertain and leave the politics to the politicians.

    ABC Disney hollyweird, Americans Stand for the Flag Stand for our military. We kneel for the fallen and the good lord. Your opinions are that OPINIONS. And we’ll keep ours in our pockets

    Why in the world would they not include the planting of the American flag? This decision has cost the filmmakers millions. Boycott any future films directed by Damien Chazelle. Hollywood is on the ropes with the American people. Don’t let these dishonest people rewrite our history.
