I’m not even watching this trailer. The Charlie’s angels movies from the 2000’s are some of the some of the dumbest movies in history.

I didn't think Justin Bieber would be in a movie like this, but I've been wrong before. :dunno:

Two white girls now?!? Nice to see Hollywood continue to white wash their films. Next thing you know, one of them will be a man...probably even straight.

Bet the black Widow movies destroys this.

Atomic Blonde was great. Red Sparrow was good, but not exceptional.

Still have yet to see Anna.

Isn't elizabeth banks such a poor actress that she basically had to switch to commercials? How did she get a gig as a director? Kinda funny to see it flop, lol

Or that the premise just sucked to begin with and the cast left nothing to desire.

Her actual quote;
"Look, people have to buy tickets to this movie, too. This movie has to make money. If this movie doesn’t make money it reinforces a stereotype in Hollywood that men don’t go see women do action movies. "

Ummm, what about Wonder Woman?


Charlies Angles was always kind of a meh franchise to me. A lot of people don't like Kristen Stewart, and I don't even know the other two. Didn't really seem like it was a recipe for success. Plus it isn't like this was a male centeric movie that was popular, remade with a female lead cast that flopped so to me that kind of also kills her argument.

She explained her quote and shes not wrong. Everyone is just running with the wrong story.

She basically said men will see comic book movies, b/c they are inherently male movies...Wonder Woman included. she said men don't see movies that are not comic book movies that are an all female cast in an action setting. Again, I agree.

“If this movie doesn’t make money it reinforces a stereotype in Hollywood that men don’t go see women do action movies. [Audience members will] go and see a comic book movie with Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel because that’s a male genre. So even though those are movies about women, they put them in the context of feeding the larger comic book world, so it’s all about, yes, you’re watching a Wonder Woman movie but we’re setting up three other characters or we’re setting up Justice League.”

Someway, somehow, we're always at fault.

Or again, it could just be that the premise of the movie and the choice of actresses sucked. But "ok" Elizabeth, you go with that.

Shes not wrong tho...do we wanna go watch a bunch of girls do action movies? 95% absolutely not.

Whatever else she says, sure whatever. But the male population doesn't want to watch a female action movie...probably b/c no one knows how to deliver a satisfying female led action movie.

I'm not really disagreeing I suppose. I mean there have been a few successful female movies have there not? The Lara Croft stuff, even if it was a movie based on a video game, comes to mind.

But again, this was a premise of trying to resurrect a franchise that really wasn't asked for.

Yeah I read more of it after I posted. I still think she is focusing on the wrong reason this movie isn't doing great.

what I find funny is she knew that there was no audience for this movie and made it anyhow to try and be some kind of Super hero feminist and prove a point about action movies that nobody cares about. In the end All she actually succeeded in doing is loosing a ton of money and destroying her career.
