You Won’t Believe How All-Star Anti-George W. Bush Movie Did This Weekend

Acclaimed film directer Rob Reiner’s newest movie “Shock and Awe” bombed at the box office over the weekend in spite of its all-star cast and its theme — painting doggedly persistent journalists as heroes in the face of an administration that was “hiding the truth” from the American public.

The per-venue breakdown was even worse, showing that with a limited 100 theater release, the film earned only $410 per screen.

“Shock and Awe,” which was also made available on iTunes, stars Woody Harrelson, Tommy Lee Jones, James Marsden and Jessica Biel.

According to film review site Rotten Tomatoes, “the film is based on the true events of Knight Ridder journalists who were the only ones who ‘got it right’ in the lead-up to the 2003 Iraq War when they questioned the true nature of the Bush White House’s justification for the conflict.” It received only 2 stars and a 36 percent on the tomato meter.
