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.

Movie Director Steven Spielberg’s Daughter Announces Porn Career: It Is ‘Satisfying My Soul’

These are Hollywood values right here.

Published

on

Movie director Steven Spielberg, who has directed iconic movies such as “Jaws,” “Schindler’s List,” and “ET,” has a 23-year-old adopted daughter, Mikaela, who recently announced that she will be starring in porno movies.

Mikaela made the announcement that she is a porno actress after she wasn’t getting much traction in the business before people knew she was Spielberg’s daughter. There is little to no resemblance between Mikaela and her father or her mother, Kate Capshaw, as she was adopted by the couple as a baby.

Mikaela maintains that this is a move of “empowerment,” and hopes to gain her stripper’s license in Tennessee and begin working the pole in a matter of time as well. She claims she made the decision to do porno after she “got really tired of not being able to capitalize on my body and, frankly, I got really tired of being told to hate my body.”

Her decisions seem to stem from deep-seeded mental problems. She also mentioned that she has suffered from eating disorders, depression, and severe anxiety throughout her life, which perhaps have led her down the road of becoming a porno actress.

“It’s not my parents’ fault,” Mikaela told the U.S. Sun, referring to her variety of mental problems, which have resulted in multiple suicide attempts and alcoholism. “They couldn’t have known.”

Mikaela believes that doing porn and becoming a stripper is about “satisfying [her] soul,” as she believes that sex work will liberate her from the 9-to-5 grind and not make her feel violated.

“And I also just got tired of working day to day in a way that wasn’t satisfying my soul,” she said. “I feel like doing this kind of work, I’m able to ‘satisfy’ other people, but that feels good because it’s not in a way that makes me feel violated.”

Mikaela claims that she will only do solo work while starring in porn films, out of reverence for her fiancé, Chuck Pankow, who is more than double her age. She maintains that this is about independence, rather than desperation. She wraps her decision to degrade herself in feminist platitudes.

“This isn’t like an ‘end of the road’ or ‘I’ve hit bottom’ choice,” she said. “This is a positive, empowering choice. I realized there is no shame in having a fascination with this industry and wanting to do something that is safe, sane, consensual.”

Showing the example of the type of family values embodied by her Hollywood parents, Mikaela believes her parents will be proud of the fact that she is an emerging porn star.

“I actually think that once they see how far I’ve come from the bottom I was at a year and a half ago, they’re going to look at this and go, ‘Wow, we actually raised a really self-assured young lady,” she said.

As Hollywood liberals like Spielberg use their movies to lecture Americans on values and morality, their own daughters are selling their body for cash. It really shows the type of cultural cesspool that the entertainment industry has become, and perhaps always has been.
