The Final Duel’s Ridley Scott Blames Millennials and “F–king Cellphones” for Field Workplace Flop – E! On-line


Academy Award-nominated director Ridley Scott thinks he is aware of why his newest undertaking, The Last Duel, wasn’t in a position to spar with its rivals on the field workplace.
The acclaimed director addressed the movie’s less-than-ideal grossing numbers through the newest episode of Marc Maron‘s WTF podcast. Regardless of receiving rave evaluations from critics, The Final Duel—a film launched in mid-October starring Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Jodie Comer—solely raked in $28 million in opposition to a manufacturing funds of $100 million.
“Disney did a implausible promotion job,” Scott mentioned of the film’s manufacturing studios, including that “the bosses cherished the film… I used to be involved it was not for them.”
In keeping with Ridley, there could also be a specific technology that is perhaps guilty for the absence in gross sales. “I believe what it boils right down to,” he mentioned. “What we have at the moment [are] the audiences who had been introduced up on these f–king cellphones. The millennian [sic] don’t ever wish to be taught something until you are instructed it on a cellphone.”
