A Box Office Failure

There have been plenty of flops at the box office in 2019, and one of the biggest and most disappointing was Charlie's Angels. The reboot of the reboot got middling critical reviews and a relatively positive audience score, but the ass kicking super spies were unable to scare up much of a box office haul.

On a budget of $48 million (plus marketing), Charlie's Angels only pulled $8 million in its opening weekend. The film has gone on to make $55 million worldwide, so it might break even, but certainly hasn't made a big enough splash to warrant a sequel.

Kristen Stewart Puts A Positive Spin

Kristen Stewart, who was widely considered the best part of Charlie's Angels , recently gave an interview with The Playlist about the film underperforming. Despite her disappointment, Stewart manages to remain pretty positive about the project.

"Well, to be honest with you, I think if I had made a movie that wasn’t good and one that I wasn’t proud of and a lot of people saw it, I would be devastated. Luckily I’m not feeling gutted because I really am proud of the movie.

Bummed There Won't Be A Sequel

Stewart admitted that the film may have had an uphill battle in today's political climate.

"I think that the kind of the climate that we’re living in right now is polarizing and it’s weird and it’s kind of hard to promote a movie like that. And I think trying to have a really complicated, overly politicized feminist conversation in a five minute TV interview about Charlie's Angels... I’m like, ‘Dude, we just wanted to have a good time.'"

Stewart's biggest regret though, is that the cast won't get to reunite for a sequel.

"I’m bummed that we probably won’t make another one, but at the same time I’m really proud of the movie and I’m so happy that it exists and can live in the world. Because I think for a lot of people it’s still kind of important even in a very non-serious way."

Elizabeth Banks Is Proud Of The Film Too

Director and star Elizabeth Banks has also commented on the film's failure, tweeting out a rather good natured response to the box office.

"Well, if you’re going to have a flop, make sure your name is on it at least 4x. I’m proud of #CharliesAngels and happy it’s in the world."

Bett luck next time, Angels! (Or not...)
