On November 15th, the world was treated to the latest iteration of the Charlie's Angels franchise. "I think women are allowed to have one or two action franchises every 17 years - I feel totally fine with that", Banks told WSJ magazine.
The "Hunger Games" actress seemed to dismiss the box office success of "Captain Marvel", the Brie Larson-led Marvel film that earned $1.1 billion worldwide earlier this year, as well as "Wonder Woman", which grossed $821 million in 2017, because they belonged to a "male genre". In addition to spearheading efforts behind the scenes, the "Pitch Perfect" alum also plays a vital role on screen as Bosley, a former Angel acting as one of Charlie's agents in his new and improved Townsend Agency.
This loss makes 2019's Charlie's Angels the third Hollywood sequel in a row to flop at the box office after Doctor Sleep and Terminator: Dark Fate.
"They'll go and see a comic book motion picture with Ponder Woman and Captain Marvel since that is a male style".

Banks blames the films lack of success on the preferences of male viewers, contrasting the box office performance of Charlie's Angles with the success of the girl power superhero movies Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel. It's ironic because the film's director Elizabeth Banks stated in an interview before the film's release that Charlie's Angels could be a failure because men wouldn't want to see an action movie starring women.
"Being at a big franchise lets you have everything". "But we need more women's voices supported with money because that's the power". Firstly, as to why Charlie's Angels failed, despite the appeal of having a modern feminist spin on the "jiggle TV" Charlie's Angels formula - which actually makes a lot of sense - the hype just wasn't there.
"'Charlie's Angels' has always been about women, and the DNA of it is about women working together on this team", she said.
Despite her comment, the disappointing launch comes after Banks admitted she was hoping to convince studio bosses to back more female directors. "I'm proud of #CharliesAngels and happy it's in the world", Banks tweeted. "I recognize the same thing, it's nearly unfair for women".
"If this movie doesn't make money it reinforces a stereotype in Hollywood that men don't go see women do action movies", said Banks.
