The first raked in $264.1 million, while Full Throttle followed closely behind at a whopping $259.1 million, with each easily surpassing its budget.

"Look, people have to buy tickets to this movie, too. This movie has to make money", Banks told the Sun.
"If this movie doesn't make money it reinforces a stereotype in Hollywood that men don't go see women do action movies", she explained. "We kept it really grounded". This current chapter of Charlie's Angels history has not been lucrative.
Secondly, Hollywood most certainly has a very obvious and bad gender bias that needs to be tackled passionately, but that doesn't mean that female-led action movies are all failures. All female-led, all hugely successful. Unlike the original 1970 television series or the Drew Barrymore film from 2000, this new Charlie's Angels movie is a box office and critical disappointment.
The Charlie's Angels reboot directed by Elizabeth Banks, starring Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Baliska hit cinemas this past weekend with little to no fanfare. On the contrary, the filmmaker is happy for these women characters to have box-office successes. "But we need more women's voices supported with money because that's the power".
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. Look, I personally did not like the film and gave it a negative review without sugarcoating anything.

During an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Elizabeth defended her film's reboot, citing Spider-man as an example.
"I think women are allowed to have one or two franchises every 17 years - I feel totally fine with that", she added.
Being in a big franchise allows you to have it all. "Putting women to work together to solve crimes, take down worldwide baddies, and it has a lot of themes that I think represent some people's anxieties about the moment we're living in right now". "It's okay to want to make money".
On November 15th, the world was treated to the latest iteration of the Charlie's Angels franchise. The actress tweeted out yesterday that she's actually quadrupled down on the flop, but she's still proud of it.
