Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s new documentary following climate activists has flopped in theaters, bringing an average of just $80 per theater on opening weekend. 

The documentary, titled "To The End," was released on December 9, and brought in $9,667 across all theaters in the US on opening weekend, according to ticket receipt data from Box Office Mojo.

The movie premiered in 120 theaters across the country, with each theater bringing in an average of just $80.

"Filmed over four years of hope and crisis, To the End captures the emergence of a new generation of leaders and the movement behind the most sweeping climate change legislation in US history," a description on the movie’s website reads.

"The award-winning team behind Knock Down the House follows four exceptional young women— Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, activist Varshini Prakash, climate policy writer Rhiana Gunn-Wright, and political strategist Alexandra Rojas— as they grapple with new challenges of leadership and power and work together to defend their generation’s right to a future. 

"From street protests to the halls of Congress, these bold leaders fight to shift the narrative around climate, revealing the crisis as an opportunity to build a better society. Including up-to-the-minute footage that culminates in 2022’s landmark climate bill, To the End  lifts the veil on the battle for the future of our world, and gives audiences a front-seat view of history in the making."

"Fighting for change politically requires faith," Ocasio-Cortez said in a trailer for the film, calling the "moonshot for our generation."

The film currently boasts an 88 percent "fresh" critic score on Rotten Tomatoes, but has no audience score as of yet.

According to the Daily Mail, the documentary is the latest one from director Rachel Lears, who also directed the 2019 film "Knock Down the House," which centered around Ocasio-Cortez and the 2018 midterm election.

This film received a 99 percent "fresh" score from critics on Rotten Tomatoes, but received just an 11 percent audience score.

One audience member told Fox News that this previous film was a "knocked down drag out snooze fest."

"I feel like I must have watched a completely different movie than the ones [the critics] watched," one viewer said. "It was absolutely terrible, and it actually made me dislike Alexandria Cortez after it was all over. I now see the audience score and I would say it is much more accurate compared to the critics."
