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.
Michelle Obama’s Influence Over Netflix Led to Release of Pro-Pedo Movie ‘Cuties’
Netflix is under fire for distributing the pro-pedo flick “Cuties” over its streaming video service. The movie “Cuties” is about an 11-year-old girl who discovers her sexuality while twerking.
“Cuties” has been described by its apologists as a triumph of diversity and womanhood. It should come as no surprise that this content is getting distributed as former first lady Michelle Obama is an influential producer with Netflix.
Big League Politics reported three years ago on how the Obamas were using Netflix to distribute their political propaganda and promote their social agenda after leaving the White House:
The deal would pay both the former President, and his wife Michelle to provide exclusive content to the over 118 million Netflix subscribers around the world. It is unclear of the exact content that would be produced, but after looking at other content produced by Netflix, the shows being highly political wouldn’t be surprising.
After receiving massive investments totaling over $40 million from George Soros in 2015 and 2016, the content on the streaming service began to shift and include originally produced content with political agendas.
One show they released was titled “Dear White People,” and was extremely racially charged, as the name implies. They also released a show featuring Katie Couric that explores “gender identity,” while at the same time editing a portion of an old episode of Bill Nye the Science Guy, where Nye makes the claim that there are only two genders.
With former President Obama already going against the norm for other Presidents by attacking the current President, it’s clear that Obama is okay with getting divisively political. It would not be surprising to see his show used as a political weapon of the left.
Making matters even worse, Russia-gate villain and former national security advisor Susan Rice also sits on the Netflix board.

It should come as no surprise that Michelle is completely silent with regards to “Cuties.” This is the type of filth that her family is personally invested in promoting throughout the West. Her husband is the founder of ISIS, as President Trump so eloquently put it, after all.
Big League Politics has reported on how “Cuties” is mainstreaming child pornography and the sexualization of kids:
A Netflix film set to debut on Sept. 9 will feature profile an 11-year-old girl who joins a twerking dance crew to “explore her femininity.”
The film, called “Cuties,” will provide fodder for pedophiles and sexual deviants the world over. The description of the perverse movie reads as follows: “Amy, an 11-year-old girl, joins a group of dancers named “the cuties” at school, and rapidly grows aware of her burgeoning femininity – upsetting her mother and her values in the process.”
… The trailer has already inspired a lot of rage from YouTube critics who are sick of the LGBT agenda to sexualize and exploit innocent children.
“Jeffrey Epstein would have loved this show,” a user with the handle “MR. OBVIOUS” wrote in a comment.
“The premise is a dishonest one. One doesn’t have to be remotely religious to want to forbid their 11-year old daughter from twerking in a scantily clad clothing, but they have to make the main character a victim of a religious upbringing so that opponents of this movie would be seen as religious zealots,” commented user “zhengyingli” about the trailer.
“This looks so disgusting, I felt like I’m already on an Offenders list just watching this,” user “Junior Jr.” wrote in a comment.
“Not even trying to hide the pedo rings anymore,” wrote user “IchiPopp” in a comment.
Michelle and her husband represent the values of the third world, not the values of a Western Christian society.
