Elizabeth Banks Discusses Why She Feels Marketing From Her 2019 Movie Charlie’s Angels it didn’t work at all.
During an interview with The New York Times which was posted online Tuesday, Banks, who wrote, directed and co-starred in the film, said he felt his project was misrepresented. The Sony Pictures film, starring Kristen Stewart, was a reboot of the property that launched as a television series in the 1970s before spawning a 2000 film and subsequent sequel.
Clarifying that she is proud of her film and calling it an “amazing experience” to make it, Banks added: “It was very stressful, partly because when women do things in Hollywood, it becomes this story. There was a story around Charlie’s Angels that I was creating some feminist manifesto. She was doing an action movie. I would have liked to have done Mission Impossiblebut women are not leading Mission Impossible.”
She continued: “I was able to direct an action movie, frankly, because it was starring women, and I’m a director, and that’s the limit right now in Hollywood. I wish the movie hadn’t been billed as just for girls, because I didn’t make it just for girls. There was a disconnect on the marketing side for me.”
Banks, who has starred in movies like Zack and Miri make a porn Y the The Hunger Games franchise and made her directorial debut with 2015 pitch perfect 2He said he feels “in a rarefied category” as a filmmaker and can’t assess whether the industry has recently become more accepting of women at the helm of action movies.
“I’m putting my head down and showing these big corporations that if they give women the opportunity to do this job, they can make a good product that makes a profit,” she said. “It is a male-dominated industry. It is a world dominated by men. That’s what I’m dealing with, but I can’t figure it out, and I don’t really want to analyze it.”
Charlie’s Angels, which also starred Naomi Scott, Ella Balinska, Djimon Hounsou and Patrick Stewart, focused on three women who work as spies for a boss named Charlie. The film earned $17.8 million at the domestic box office and $73.2 million worldwide.
In his review for the hollywood reporterreviewer Beandrea July called the film “a wildly entertaining action flick that also exposes the systemic ways in which men are overvalued and women are undervalued in society, and boldly connects this pattern to nothing less than planetary annihilation.”
