This is based on 100 theaters, but the film is also available on iTunes:

But even with the limited release, $410 per screen is shockingly low, especially with this cast:

Like really, really bad:
*SHOCK AND AWE*
$41,000 divided by 100 theaters = $410.00 per theater.
$410 divided by $14/ticket = 29 tickets sold per theater.
29 tickets divided by 3 days = 10 tickets per theater per day.
10 tickets divided by 2 showings per day = 5 tickets per showing.https://t.co/TYQdbzsDly

Never change, Hollywood:
They're going to keep making these movies until America feels guilty enough to pay to see them.

The amount of money Hollywood continually wastes on left-wing propaganda films that no one wants to watch is staggering. They released one of these about every other week during the GWB years & they all flopped then too. https://t.co/FMGJSB9D3v

And it looks like Reiner knew this bomb was coming. His last tweet promoting the movie was May 18:
Just previewed the trailer for my new film Shock And Awe which focuses on the struggle of the free press to push the truth out and uncover an administration’s lies. The film premieres on Direct TV on June 14. In theaters July13. https://t.co/Hg5VGyndYk

With Rob 'Meathead' Reiner's support for Germany, we must ask: Is he a Putin puppet? https://t.co/ehHgYUwcbV
