It seems like the Angels just failed at their latest (and probably last) mission. The 2019 reboot of Charlie’s Angels turned out to be a box-office flop. The ensemble cast had Naomi Scott, Kristen Stewart, and Ella Balinska as the leading trio of angels. However, the movie simply fizzled at theaters, and miserably fell even below the studio’s low expectations, grossing only $8.6 million. Kristen Stewart, who rose to fame in Hollywood since her role in the Twilight series, is the only prominently known famous actress. Naomi Scott gained popularity just recently when she starred as Jasmine in the latest ‘Aladdin’. Meanwhile, Ella Balinska is a newcomer. Director Elizabeth Banks is the series first female filmmaker. Despite her enthusiastic attempt at the female-starer action-packed film, it just did not appeal to the masses.
You’re left with a “Charlie’s Angels” that doesn’t know what to make of itself and, for the first time, feels out-of-style”, said Adam Graham, a Top Movie Critic.
Elizabeth Banks Is Unfazed Even After The Flop
Even though the world is talking about how badly the film flopped, Elizabeth Banks is still keeping her spirits high and alive. In fact, Charlie’s Angels (2019) director thinks there is nothing to be embarrassed about.
She stated in her tweet that she is proud of Charlie’s Angels and is happy that it is in the world.
Well, if you’re going to have a flop, make sure your name is on it at least 4x. I’m proud of #CharliesAngels and happy it’s in the world.

And she is getting tons of appreciation too…
Female empowerment is important. And Elizabeth Banks did it right by solely directing a film with an only-female lead cast. She is getting her due share of praise in this regard.
Many others took to Twitter to tell Banks that they thoroughly enjoyed the film.
At the end of the day, if many people who watched the film actually liked it so much- it isn’t ‘really’ essentially a flop after all.
What matters is Elizabeth Banks is proud of her work with her head held high.
