'Charlie's Angels' Director Blames Men For Box Office Failure

  • Charlie's Angels 2019 new angels trio

According to Forbes, Charlie's Angels took just $3.15 million on Thursday and Friday, while Ford v Ferrari took $30 million and Midway, which came out the week before, took $8.8 million.

Also starring Sam Claflin, Djimon Hounsou and Patrick Stewart, Charlie's Angels is out now across the UK. And as Banks continued in a separate interview with the Wall Street Journal, she lamented how Hollywood keeps throwing money at these big franchises, relegating most female-led productions to be much smaller affairs.

The original Charlie's Angels film (2000) and its 2003 sequel, Full Throttle, starred Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu and Drew Barrymore, and the two movies did significantly better in their respective box office runs. Instead, we got the trio of Kristen Stewart, Ella Balinska, and Naomi Scott. But that seems unlikely now after a less than stellar box office.

However, when it wa pointed out that female-fronted action movies like Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman had been box office smashes ($1.1 billion and $821 million worldwide), Banks said that those examples don't tell the whole story.

"I wanted really exceptional women in their fields", she told The Times ahead of the film's November 15 opening.

Ultimately, Coty will be building on the foundation Kylie built when she launched her company in 2015. The Kylie deal is a "key milestone" in Coty's transformation, the company said in the statement.

"Being in a big franchise allows you to have it all", she said.

Charlie's Angels will be released in United Kingdom cinemas November 29. "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'".

According to her, the reason movies like Wonder Woman made money is because they're part of a "male genre".

The star wrote, "Well, if you're going to have a flop, make sure your name is on it at least 4x". On the contrary, the filmmaker is happy for these women characters to have box-office successes. And, because of that, something like Charlie's Angels couldn't compare because it's not a part of that genre or franchise style.

In partnership with Perfect World Pictures and 2.0 Entertainment, Sony Pictures and Banks, 45, were working with a $48-million budget before marketing costs, meaning the film companies could each lose a sizable amount in finances as a result of the poor showing. "I recognize the same thing, it's nearly unfair for women".
