“Male fuelled” Matrix and Kingsman? I would argue that NWH is far more male lead and oriented yet is killing it. No news...both really bad movies. Ban food and drink in the theater so people will keep their masks on The Kings Man was straight up garbage though so it deserved to fail Matrix may have run it's course

I could see why filmsarn'tthatgoodtobeginwith Don't nobody understand them movies Help to support RestoreTheSndyerVerse Kings Man should have gone streaming and it should have never even been made before k3. Vaughn botched K2 by making it a promo for Rocketman. He should have never killed Merlin and Roxy He could have created his own franchise by keeping the core together.

Every single film apart from Free Guy and Spider-Man has disappointed at the box office in 2021. If you're not Marvel, DC, or some other exceptions, you may as well not even release in cinemas at this point as modern audiences only go to 'event films'
