“No one complains about Spider-Man”: Elizabeth Banks defends “3 Charlie’s Angels”

Is “3 Charlie’s Angels” 16 years after the last angel film necessary? For director Elizabeth Banks this question shows a clear problem with women franchises. After all, is not complaining about the numerous Spidey reboot.

With 8.6 million US dollars grossing in the US and Canada, the “Charlie’s Angels 3” flopped -Neuauflage the first weekend at the box office. Only 27.9 million US dollars of the action film played worldwide. Critics had previously criticized, among other things, whether there 16 years after “3 Charlie’s Angels – Full Throttle” ever makes sense to open a new chapter in the Angels franchise.

Such statements have director and actress Elizabeth Banks ( “The Hunger Games”) has encouraged in an interview with the WSJ Magazine a sharp response. She has also been the popular Marvel superhero Spider-Man pre-buttoned.

Female franchises have a harder

For Banks only question clearly do about the meaning of an angel reboots with reservations about female-dominated franchises.

“You had 37 Spider Man ‘films and no one has complained. I think women should probably have one every 17 years to two action franchises -. So I totally agree “

You had 37 Spider Man ‘films and no one has complained fmovies.

In a time of continuous reboots, sequels and prequels Banks certainly has a point here. Your example Spider-Man has after all been through over the past twelve years, two movie reboots and this does not become less important. it is true also that it have a hard female actresses in dominated in the public perception of men genres.

This had to last about Olivia Wilde with her directorial debut, the high school comedy “Book Smart” experience, which was celebrated in the US Although critics but failed to impress at the box office. According to Wilde also because young women would not have expected in our society to be as funny as men.

Similar reservations there, according to Banks also against a female action comedy like “Charlie’s Angels 3”. Whether the Marvel comic book character Spider-Man, which is incredibly popular for decades, but here is a good point of comparison, can be doubted.

After all, based “3 Charlie’s Angels” on a 40-year-old TV series, the reboot failed 2011 and also the last Angel film with Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu and Drew Barrymore was added little positive response from critics.

On the other hand Banks has with the list of 37 Spidey films, of course, aware reacted polemically, to underscore their legitimate point.

That’s what “3 Charlie’s Angels”

In “3 Charlie’s Angels” with Kristen Stewart ( “Twilight”), Naomi Scott ( “Aladdin”) and newcomer Ella Balinska is a continuation of the Angels franchises with a new generation of female agents. Director Banks can be seen together with Djimon Hounsou ( “Guardians Of The Galaxy”) and Patrick Stewart ( “X-Men”) as one of several Bosleys – assistant to the mysterious Charlie, who was first spoken by Robert Clotworthy.

Kristen Stewart is the first appearance in a major mainstream franchise since “Twilight”. Elizabeth Banks, meanwhile, is also clear why:

“Being in a big franchise, allows you to have everything at once. I see it the same way, it is almost unfair to women. The best roles are usually seen in small films, but then they do not make money. It is to want to make money in order. “
