Charlie’s Angels Bombs At The Box Office

Published: Saturday 16th Nov 2019 by David

The latest attempt to tell the Charlie’s Angels story has bombed at the box office after its Ariana Grande-led soundtrack did the same on the Billboard 200.

Learn more below…

The first reports hinting that a new Angels movie was on the way revealed that Destiny’s Child and Lupita Nyong’o were being courted to support the release on a soundtrack and acting front respectively.

Shortly after, the world learned that Ariana Grande was to lead its soundtrack and that Ms. Nyong’o would not be attached to it.

 

Today, it has tanked at the box office.

How so? By opening with $8 million. Horrific, because it was baked with a $48 million budget.

One of its problems? Its supposed failure to captivate African-American moviegoers.

Deadline reveals…

Charlie’s Angels drew a 66% female crowd, split between 36% over 25 and 30% under 25, but both demos respectively graded it low at 68% and 79% with men at 35% giving it a 68% grade on PostTrak. Diversity breakdown was 52% Caucasian, 21% Hispanic, 14% Asian/Other, & 13% African American.

    I’ve heard of a flop but DAMN! They did worst than most TV movies, what’s their plan to make even a forth back? And the soundtrack failing as well doesn’t help, especially being helmed by Ariana Grande of all people, she’s not THAT girl! They need to sell the crap to a network, like TNT or TBS but even then…you’ll have a better turnover airing the original instead lmao!

      I can’t breath after reading your comment chile 🤣

      LOL i love it when whites lose their money in investing. Im happy this movie flopped and rumor has it the studio was about to drop another 50 mil in marketing but pulled the plug on it lmao. Thats what those white demons get. They blocked blacks from ever owning studios in hollywood so thats what they get. Tyler Perry is making films at penny on the dollar rates and showing good profit returns in atlanta.

    Nobody asked for a reboot, what did they expect.

  3. Lol November 16, 2019

    It flopped because we never asked for it. Like we said, if it doesn’t involve Lucy Lui, our girl Drew, Cameron D and Destiny then we don’t care.

  4. #TheTruth November 16, 2019

    Exactly, if they had reunited Lucy, Cameron and Drew, it would have been much different.
    And having a new song by DC would have been a tour de force and give extra attention to the movie.

    That new cast – no offense to them – isn’t attractive at all (I’m not talking about looks there).

  5. biancacook November 16, 2019

    this didn’t do well cuz there were no big names and nobody really wanted a new one. well im sure tyrese feels better about his movie after seeing these numbers.

  6. FAF November 16, 2019

    It was pointless and Kristen Stewart is a joke outside of anything that semblances Billie eilish. She needs to go back dark

    • DC32020 November 16, 2019

      😭😭😭😭😭😭

  7. Xtina4life November 16, 2019

    What does African america gotta do with it bombing. I swear the black stuff always gets brought up. It bombed cause it didn’t have the same magic as the first Charlie’s angels or their personalities. I’m sure Cameron Lucy and Drew are laughing at it bombing.

    • XYZ November 17, 2019

      They do that for the comments. They could have as well said that it bombed cause there was no male audience didnt went to see it. But they want the comments

  8. Pat November 16, 2019

    Nobody wanna c no gender neutral lookn angels

  9. K_man November 16, 2019

    We all saw this flop coming…. even Stevie wonder saw this coming. Plus they had Kristin Stewart, she looks like she still doesn’t take a shower.

  10. Clarksoon November 16, 2019

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    The album bombed big time
    Bad to u didnt even chart
    Major L for nicki and normani

    Arianna will be fine cause she is a white woman with a dedicated fan base, same with miley and lana

    Nicki and normani will not survive this failure
    This is a massive blow to nicki and especially normani since she’s relatively new in the industry
    Attaching ur self to such a massive flop is bad for ur career.

    • Lola Lover November 16, 2019

      Shut up. If anyone took an L it’s Ariana. They hired her to sell the soundtrack and to sell the movie and she and her ponytail failed at both. Your obsession with Normani is so sad. A crying shame if I ever knew.

      • DC32020 November 16, 2019

        Lol exactly. Ariana is trying to say that it’s not really an Ariana project but that makes no sense because she literally shot videos for entire songs written specifically for the movie. I bet Little Schlong Braun rushed to get her the contract when he thought DC was going to do it. He should have learned his lesson after his Jem and the holograms remake tanked.

      • Clarksoon November 16, 2019

        If Camila did this soundtrack it would be number 1 and if she was in the movie it would be a box office hit

      • Clarksoon November 16, 2019

        Girl everybody on the sound track should take an L

        As I explained earlier, arianna will be alright cause she’s a white woman with a strong fan base same with miley and lana

        Normani dont have no fan base. She should be worried attaching herself to a massive flop so early in her career.

      • Clarksoon November 16, 2019

        Pls ignore the troll talking about Camila

    • XYZ November 17, 2019

      Is this was nickis first flop 🙄

    • Sugar Plum Diamond November 16, 2019

      If it’s a massive flop and being attached to one is bad for your career isn’t Ariana the one who should be worried seeing as she was literally asked to front the soundtrack? 😭. Is it the crack?

      • Clarksoon November 16, 2019

        If Camila did this soundtrack it would be number 1 and if she was in the movie it would be a box office hit.

      • Clarksoon November 16, 2019

        Pls ignore the troll talking about Camila

  12. Xtina4life November 16, 2019

    Now that it bombed I hope Drew makes a thrid movie. I honestly think it would be a hit for them.

  13. Gee November 16, 2019

    Everything surrounding this project is a flop, end of story!!!

  14. TaJ November 16, 2019

    A blind person could see this coming

  15. Just Sayin’ November 16, 2019

    Like duh it would flop u could tell from the trailer it would have been a big fail.

  16. November 16, 2019

    I’m starting to realize something, that must people who comment across these sites are happy when people fail, as far as I see it they are even happy when their favorite fails. what is even worse they act like they know the way to success, be talking about if they did so and so they would have made it, they crazy.

    • #Formulation November 17, 2019

      Hahaha this is so true… they talkin as if they the experts will sittin on their fat asses at home drinking pop…

  17. Rayneisha November 17, 2019

    White trash Stewart and her generic partners. What’s not to like?

  18. stan November 17, 2019

    maybe this will teach hollywood to stop with the lame remakes

  19. XYZ November 17, 2019

    We all knew this’ll happen.

    People loved the old movies. Like everyone loved them. They were fun, had a great cast, still had a message of female power without forcing it to the people. Drew was known, Cameron was America’s sweetheart and Lucy was loved for Ally McBeal. I liked all three of them.

    And what is the cast now? Kirsten Steward, who people not even liked in Twilight and two girls no one has ever heard of. That all with trailers that looked like this movie wants to be some Rambo type of s*** with bad jokes and a soundtrack that sounded like it was made for 11 year old girls in 2003. This was all a mess.

  20. Dave November 18, 2019

    I just don’t know why directors want to make a movie like this.
    Just make a cool movie that is cool and not “we seen this kind of action and style before”.
    And we all walked out. The editing and soundtrack was so boring. We seen this before.
    come on
    Japan and Korea go better movies and they make the action cooler
    why did they reboot Charlie’s angel, and the title itself is boring.
    to the new generation, they read this title as being odd and not-entertaining

    Don’t feminists claim that it’s about equality, (the famous dictionary definition), rather than female superiority or simply hatred of men? But instead of inventing new characters, writing original good and making great films with the potential to become successful franchises, they keep stealing traditionally male roles and inserting their agenda by gender swapping the protagonists. That’s why we get repeated flops like the female ‘Ghostbusters,’ ‘Star Wars Episodes , 7-9,’ and ‘Terminator; Dark Fate.’ Why aren’t feminists demanding Mills & Boone change their plots to attract male readers? Is 50-50 male to female equality only necessary in media like action films that traditionally appeal more to males?

    The original Charley’s Angels’ had three female protagonists, so continuing the current trend in gender swapping reboots, Elizabeth Banks should’ve replaced them with three male action heroes who work for a mysterious female boss. That would be genuine equality/feminist film-making. Instead, we are supposed to suspend disbelief to the point all white heterosexual men are evil yet also stupid while women are all noble, intelligent, faultless strong independent warriors.

    When a 120lb 5′ 5″ woman beats up a room full of well-muscled male gangsters single-handed, without getting so much as a hair out of place, never mind a fat lip, it requires more than the mere SUSPENSION of disbelief; it needs to be hanged, drawn and quartered!

    So the movie might have bombed but the soundtrack still had the top 15 hit Don’t Call Me Angel on it so it’s not all a lose and hey soundtrack might have flopped but was still a top 40 release. it’s never a total loss with anything there is always a positive in everything
