Charlie’s Angels: Elizabeth Banks Wishes Reboot Wasn’t Marketed As ‘Girls Only’

Elizabeth Banks wrote, directed, produced and starred in a big screen reboot of Once Upon a Time Charlie’s Angels. The film featured Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska as a new generation of angels working for a private detective agency known as the Townsend Agency. Charlie’s Angels received mixed reviews upon release and underperformed at the box office, grossing only $73.3 million worldwide.

Looking back on Charlie’s Angels reboot, Elizabeth Banks told New York Times that she wished the marketing of the film had not pushed”for girls only” angle.

I wish the movie hadn’t been presented as just for girls, because I didn’t make it just for girls. There was a disconnect on the marketing side of it for me.

Elizabeth Banks added that she is proud of the film. “I loved that Kristen Stewart was fun and light,said banks. “I loved introducing Ella Balinska to the world. I loved working with Patrick Stewart. It was an incredible experience. 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 made some feminist manifesto. I just made an action movie.“Banks said she was”able to direct an action movie, honestly, because it starred women, and I’m a female director, and that’s the limit right now in Hollywood.

Elizabeth Banks’ next film will be Cocaine bear, which sounds like a win with the title alone. The film stars Keri Russell, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Alden Ehrenreich and the late Ray Liotta and has been described as “a character-driven thriller inspired by true events that took place in Kentucky in 1985.” As for the true story, it is nonsense. In 1985, convicted drug smuggler Andrew Thornton was on a flight from Columbia and had thrown away several packages full of cocaine before jumping off the plane himself. Unfortunately, he hit his head on the tail of the plane and ended up in a free fall to the ground, where he was found dead in someone’s driveway. Several months later, a 175-pound black bear was found dead after consuming approximately $15 million worth of cocaine that had been dropped by Thornton. Cocaine bear will hit theatres he 24 February 2023.
