The film was the third installment in the Charlie’s Angels film series and served as a continuation of the story. The first two movies, starring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu, were quite iconic and with the expectations set so high, the 2019 movie proved a huge letdown.

In her recent interview with Variety, actress Kristen Stewart opened up about the experience of working in 2019’s Charlie’s Angels. The actress revealed that she hated the movie,

“It was a good idea at the time. I hated making that movie. I don’t know what else to say to you. Honestly, the three… you can’t touch [that]. Cameron, Lucy, and Drew… I love that movie. I love that movie! If that says anything.”

The first two movies featured Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu. Both the films collectively grossed over $500 million at the global box office.

In an interview with The New York Times in 2022, Charlie’s Angels director Elizabeth Banks explained why the film didn’t perform well,

“So much of the story that the media wanted to tell about Charlie’s Angels was that it was some feminist manifesto – People kept saying, ‘You’re the first female director of Charlie’s Angels! And I was like, ‘They’ve only done a TV show and McG’s movies… what are you talking about? There’s not this long legacy.’ I just loved the franchise. There was not this gendered agenda from me. That was very much laid on top of the work, and it was a little bit of a bummer. It felt like it pigeonholed me and the audience for the movie.”

The film had an estimated production budget of $48–55 million and an estimated advertising budget of $50 million. It was definitely a box office bomb as it grossed $73.3 million, proving to be a financial loss for the studios.
