“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.
Charlie’s Angels Director Says The Film Bombed Because Of Men And Superheroes
So Elizabeth Bansk (AKA” the director”) has chosen to ignore characters that range from Ripley to Sarah Connor to to Katniss Everdeen and to Juliana Crane (OK they are SciFi, but they are leading a frigging revolutions ) to cry and whine and make excuse for delivering a shitty product.
If anything, she is a victim of Feminism. Men went from the vacuous blonde with the big tits of the 50s and before to a woman that takes no shit, can strip field a rifle, it is a destructive hell when her maternal instinct switch is flipped and can you can trust when the shit hits the fan.
We no longer accept a movie just because they have a pretty woman in it, we require substance. It may not be your idea of substance, but that is your problem, not ours. And you are not guaranteed, nor cannot demand an economic return just because there are people with vaginas on your movie.
That only works for porn.

The TV show came out in 1976. It was made into a movie in 2000, and then again in 2019. The source material is stale. My generation (millennials) never watched the TV show, it came off the air before we were born.
Why would be want to see a movie based on a show we never watched and has no cross-generational appeal?
Maybe if Banks came up with an original idea people would go see it. A reboot of a cheesy show from the 70’s isn’t it.
She tried to bank on the name and failed. The concept itself is not dead, just ask Brad Thor how are the royalties for his book The Athena Project.

No, I don’t, this is entertainment, not income tax. If this is her attitude – seems like she feels she has to be right – no wonder it’s doing poorly.
Mmmkay. Then by her progtard “logic,” we can blame feminazis (like her) for all the action movies with men leads which flopped brutally in theaters.
Just off the top of my head, Battlefield Earth & the latest reboot of the Fantastic Four sucked biggly and it’s ALL HER FAULT!. 😉 How about them apples, Lizzy?
Amazing how progtards live in this alternate reality where they think the inane rules they pull out of their asses only apply to others. RME
Thanks, MM. The years had started to fade the revulsion and disappointment. Back to square 1… 😉
Quick! Watch “The Expanse” to mind-bleach that movie-that-shall-remain-nameless-from-now-on. 😀
The Expanse Season 4, December 13
Woo!! 😀 And renewed for a 5th season!
Pretty much every ad I saw for the movie focused on the lead characters going shopping for clothes. While there is a certain male demographic that that would appeal to, It’s now where near the majority.
Remember, to the woke, it’s always someone else’s fault.
Oh the irony. An unimaginative move based on a TV series that defined the term “Jiggle TV” and served as a vehicle for hot, buxom women to run around in tight clothing is a failure because men aren’t watching.
Maybe she should go to Holland. That’s where people without ability go to art school, then create “art” which no sane person would buy. So to support “the arts”, the government buys that garbage and stores it in warehouses, never to see the light of day. And for some reason, taxpayers tolerate this.
I hope Mr. Plinkett does a takedown of this one as well.
The one he did for the Ghostbusters failed reboot was great, and actually goes into some good depth on why it flopped. Not because misogynistic men don’t like Strong Woman Characters, but because it was poorly scripted, eye searing hot garbage with no jokes. Instead, you had people babbling over each other, and that was supposed to be funny. It’s not.
Anyway, this is a microcosim of why Hollywood is full of suck and fail.
