GET WOKE, GO BROKE: Anti-Male Superheroine Flick ‘Birds of Prey’ Fizzles at the Box Office

Audiences are growing sick of this agenda.

Published

on

Despite garnering positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, the anti-man, pro-feminist movie “Birds of Prey” had a woeful showing at the box office on its first weekend in theaters.

The superhero movie starring Margot Robbie as comic book heroine Harley Quinn grossed $13 million on Friday on 4,236 screens. It is projected to gross under $34 million for the entire weekend. It is set to have the worst-performing opening weekend for a movie based on DC Comics since “Jonah Hex” debuted with a dismal $5.3 million opening one decade ago.

Warner Bros. Pictures hoped to gross as much $55 million over the weekend, with $45 million being seen as a more conservative estimate for the film. The movie has feminist themes throughout the plot, and was promoted as a girl power movie that struck back against the patriarchy.

“These are bad guys that these women fight, and they represent a system that has been pushing these women down. A lot of people can relate to that. And at the same time, it’s fun,” director Cathy Yan said to NPR when being interviewed about the movie.

“I think it’s more inherent in the decisions that I make,” Yan said of her drive to bring as many minorities on board to the project as she could. “And so there was an instinct to just be more diverse with the casting. And even among the crew, I’m proud to say we had a lot of Asians on set.”

Yan whined about how Hollywood studios don’t do more to kowtow to female actresses and staff members.

“I think one for me is – and I’ve spoken about this with Jurnee Smollett-Bell, too, who is a real activist in her own way. And I think her child was 2 years old when she shot “Birds Of Prey.” And we just threw around this idea of like, well, why isn’t there a daycare trailer? Why do we have to put that elsewhere? And I think that there isn’t much of an institutional support, so you don’t get something like maternity leave because you’re either on a project or off a project.” she said.

Robbie, who played the lead actress in the film, also paid lip service to a message of female empowerment while promoting the film.

“First and foremost, the best person gets the job, Cathy [Yan] was the best person for the job,” said Robbie of the film’s director, “but I think it’s important to make more of an effort to seek out the females for those roles, because the statistics are embarrassing and disgraceful, and not where they should be. And if we don’t actually take action, it’s never going to change.”

“Now people are starting to kind of be held accountable because other people are actually doing it. Like Warner Bros, for example, actually making this film, kind of holds other studios accountable. That’s what’s really going to enact change, is holding people accountable,” Robbie added.

“Birds of Prey” is the latest in a long string of movies with a “woke” plot flopping at the box office. “Bombshell,” also starring Robbie, and “Terminator: Dark Fate” both tanked at the box office last year while TV programs “Watchmen” and “Batwoman” were ratings poison. Audiences are growing tired of “woke” propaganda, and it remains to be seen if Hollywood studios are willing to lose profits to promote leftism in movies.

Hollywood Abuser Amber Heard Fired From ‘Aquaman 2’ After Domestic Violence Admission

Heard was caught on tape admitting she beat ex-husband Johnny Depp.

Published

on

Hollywood actress Amber Heard has officially been dropped from the sequel to hit movie Aquaman after shocking audio emerged of the starlet admitting that she beat her ex-husband Johnny Depp.

The News International reported on Wednesday that Heard has been removed from the project, as Warner Bros wants to distance themselves from the toxic femme whose public reputation has taken a hit as her illicit dealings have surfaced.

Big League Politics reported on the release of hidden audio earlier this year in which Heard boasted about beating Depp and mocked the exacerbated movie star:

Depp maintained his innocence throughout Heard’s public campaign to paint him as an abuser, and now audio recordings back his story up. The Daily Mail obtained the audio this week that essentially vindicates Depp, and indicates that Heard is another grifter enabled by the senseless anti-male hysteria of the #MeToo movement.

“You are f**king killing me. Your f**king people are trying to kill me,” Depp told Heard as he pleaded with her to go to a mediator for their ongoing divorce.

“You’ve turned me into a… my boy goes to school and has kids go, so your f**king dad’s a wife beater?” he added.

She taunted Depp, claiming that a jury would never believe his story that she initiated the violence that occurred during their tumultuous relationship.

“Do you know I’m a 115, well not anymore, but I was a 115lb, almost 115lb woman,” Heard told Depp in the audio recording. “You’re going to get up on the stand, Johnny, and say, she started it? Really?”

Depp has pushed back against Heard in the public eye, even filing a $50 million defamation lawsuit against her for the op/ed that was published and circulated widely by the fake news.

“Ms. Heard is not a victim of domestic abuse; she is a perpetrator,” the lawsuit claims, alleging that Heard created false evidence and phony injury photos for the press.

In another audio recording, Heard admits to slapping Depp in the face.

“I’m sorry that I didn’t, uh, uh, hit you across the face in a proper slap, but I was hitting you, it was not punching you. Babe, you’re not punched,” she told Depp.

The divorce of Heard and Depp has been a particularly gruesome proceeding with Heard attempting to play the victim at every turn, even emerging as an early hero for the #MeToo movement.

“Two years ago, I became a public figure representing domestic abuse, and I felt the full force of our culture’s wrath for women who speak out,” she wrote in a Washington Post op/ed in Dec. 2018, whining about how her pitiful attempt to take Depp to the cleaners was so difficult for her.

Heard is learning that her actions have consequences, and being a privileged princess in the age of female empowerment cannot protect her from the fallout of her disgusting and deceptive actions.
